Drive Smarter Challenge Video Contest

Andrew Herta
Bryan Herta Autosport
August 26, 2009

Calling all filmmakers and videographers who would like to see their work rewarded with a $5,000 prize. All you have to do is create the best two-minute video illustrating how drivers can lower their gasoline costs by adopting one or more of the tips provided by the Drive Smarter Challenge campaign at http://drivesmarterchallenge.org/money-saving-tips/Default.aspx.

Bryan Herta Autosport is one of 17 partners in the transportation fuel efficiency campaign whose goal is to educate the American public on how drivers can significantly cut their gasoline costs – with ease and little effort – by driving smarter, properly maintaining their vehicles, and driving fewer miles by combining errands, biking, telecommuting, walking, carpooling, or taking public transit. The new video contest runs from August 17th to September 21st.

The first 80 entrants whose videos meet the contest criteria will win $25 ExxonMobil gift cards and Car Care Guides from the Car Care Council. The top four winners, chosen by online public voting, will also be awarded generously:

Grand Prize: $5,000 courtesy of ExxonMobil Lubricants and Specialties;
Second Prize: Choice between one VIP NASCAR Race Package (two tickets and two garage/pit passes to a NASCAR race event) or one VIP Indy Racing League Package (two tickets and two garage/pit lane passes to an Indy race event, plus a ride in a specially modified Indy car driven by a pro driver);
Third Prize: Whichever prize package hasn’t been selected by the second prize winner (either the VIP NASCAR Race Package or the VIP Indy Racing League Package);
Fourth Prize: Transportation Efficiency Package: A set of 4 Michelin Energy Saver All Season Tires (or comparable tires for the winner’s vehicle), one-year AAA membership, and two Silver Spoke League of American Bicyclists memberships.

“In these tough economic times, many U.S. households are struggling to balance their books. Even normal expenses, such as food, gas, and clothes can seem like a burden on the budget. Therefore, the need for American consumers to learn ways to save money on gas could not be greater. That’s why Bryan Herta Autosport is excited to be part of the Drive Smarter Challenge campaign and its new video contest,” said Bryan Herta. “We think the concept of saving fuel will be presented with more passion and creativity than ever before in the contest entries, and we eagerly await our chance to screen them.”

Prize donors include: ExxonMobil Lubricants and Specialties, NASCAR, Bryan Herta Autosport, the Rubber Manufacturers Association’s Be Tire Smart, Michelin, the League of American Bicyclists, and the Car Care Council.

So, don’t wait…go to www.drivesmarterchallenge.org to put your creative video-making skills to the test, share these essential fuel-saving tips with the world, and potentially win big!
