Ride With Dale Earnhardt Jr in the Amp Energy 500

FIRST 70,000 TO SIGN UP WILL HAVE NAMES FEATURED ON NO. 88 CHEVY

If Dale Earnhardt Jr. goes to Victory Lane in the Oct. 5 AMP Energy 500 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, he will bring the names of 70,000 members of JR Nation with him.

I’m proud of my sponsor, AMP Energy, for giving my fans an opportunity to ride along with me and my team for the AMP Energy 500 in October. It’s a great promotion, and I can’t wait to see how many people sign up to ride along with us.

To become one of the many people who will catch a “Ride with Dale Jr.” all you need is one can of AMP Energy drink and a computer. Beginning April 22, Earnhardt fans can simply take the code found on the bottom of any AMP Energy can, log onto www.AMPEnergy.com and register.

The first 70,000 will have their names featured on the special No. 88 AMP Energy/National Guard Chevrolet “Ride with Dale Jr.” paint scheme.

But the program doesn’t end there. AMP Energy will include each and every person who signs up to “Ride with Dale Jr.” by featuring the additional names on Dale Junior’s pit wall, his car cover and other areas around the track.
