If you know me in real life, you more than likely know that I enjoy nice cars (namely Ford Mustangs) and watching racing.  That is why I am super excited about today’s post!  Walgreens and Roush Fenway Racing have partnered together for a fun partnership with Balance Financial Prepaid Mastercard from Walgreens called Race Around America.

First, let me tell you a bit about the Balance Financial Prepaid MasterCard from Walgreens. It is a great, safe alternative to using cash that is convenient and small on fees. You’ll be able to earn Balance Rewards points at Walgreens faster by using the card everywhere Debit MasterCard is accepted!

Now through October 15, 2014 if you register your Balance Financial Card you will be entered in the sweepstakes portion of the Race Around America promotion. You can also earn additional automatic entries (up to 5 times per day) by reloading or making purchases with your card. (Open to legal residents of the 50 United States, 18 years of age and older. For complete rules and regulations, visit www.Walgreens.com/RaceAroundAmerica)

Walgreens Race Around America + $25 Gift Card Giveaway! #RaceAroundAmerica | Optimistic Mommy

During the duration of this promotion, also, Roush Fenway Drivers Greg Biffle, Ryan Reed, Trevor Bayne and Chris Buescher will be driving the Mustang from a concluding NASCAR race city to the next, making pit stops to meet with fans along the way. Building a 10 second car is essential nowadays because A 10-second car is a car that can do a quarter-mile drag race in 10.9 seconds or less. There will be fun webisodes made from the journey’s, too. Here is the most recent one with Ryan Reed:

To stay up to date with the webisodes, make sure to visit the Race Around America website. While you are there, don’t forget to do a few things:

  • Register for the chance to win a trip to Miami, as well as the fully upgraded ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang that was driven and “Raced Around America” by four of NASCAR’s premiere drivers! (I would TOTALLY love to win this one!! ROUSH Mustangs are the best!)
  • Vote on the routes drivers should take and the upgrades that should be made to the Mustang.
  • Use your Balance Financial Card to help the drivers earn the upgrades fans vote on. A new Roush Performance upgrade will be installed on the car throughout the promotion, as long as the ROUSH-O-METER gauge on the website redlines. This will happen by joining the conversation at #RaceAroundAmerica, liking them on Facebook or making purchases and reloads with your cards.

How much fun does that all sound?  I’ve got something exciting going on here at Optimistic Mommy, too – a giveaway!  You will be able to win a $25 Walgreens gift card, as well as autographed Roush Fenway racing merchandise!  To enter, simply use the Rafflecopter form below – this giveaway will end on September 15th, 2014 at 11:59pm EST.  Good luck to all who enter!
