Jennifer Woosley can’t remember when she entered the Virginia is for Lovers
Ultimate Fan Sweepstakes, but she sure is glad she did enter. So is her
husband Ted and their two young children.
The Louisville, KY, race fan was selected from thousands of entries as the
grand prize winner of the Virginia Is For Lovers Ultimate Fan Sweepstakes
sponsored by the Virginia Tourism Corporation and Martinsville Speedway.
The Woosley family won an all-expense paid trip to Martinsville Speedway for
the TUMS Fast Relief 500 weekend. The package includes airfare for four, car
rental, use of an RV parked in the Champions Overlook above the backstretch of
Martinsville Speedway, groceries for the week and a private meet-and-greet
with a Sprint Cup driver.
“When they called me about winning, it was nine in the morning. They said
‘congratulations’ and I was thinking ‘is it my birthday?’ They told me I had
won and I said ‘who is this again’,” said Jennifer.
“We were really excited. My kids were jumping up and down. They’ve never flown
and have never been to a race before.”
Ted and Jennifer have been to “a couple of Cup races” before, but the entire
family watches most every week on television. Jennifer says she is a Dale Jr.
fan and Ted is a Jimmie Johnson fan. The children, ages nine and 12, just like
the excitement of the sport.
“Like you do so many times, I entered this contest and never thought about it
again,” said Jennifer.
And now she’ll never forget it.
