Race fans attending next week's AAA Texas 500 weekend will have the opportunity to beat five-time reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson at Texas Motor Speedway. It just won't be in a stock car or on the 1.5-mile oval, but it is sure to be equally entertaining. Johnson will take on fans in his new video game Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine at the MyLowe's lounge located on the midway of Texas Motor Speedway.
To help celebrate the launch of Johnson's new video game, Texas Motor Speedway is offering the Jimmie Johnson'sAnything With An Engine ticket package. The ticket package, priced appropriately at $48, includes a frontstretch ticket for the AAA Texas 500 and allows fans to receive VIP line treatment and get expedited service to play the video game at the MyLowe's lounge.
Fans that purchase the package can stop by the display from Thursday to Saturday to qualify for the chance to play Jimmie Johnson on Sunday morning prior to the AAA Texas 500. To qualify fans will take three laps around the "Route 66" track and the two fastest times from those purchasing the package will advance to the semi-finals.
Those that did not purchase a package can still get the chance to play Johnson by visiting the display Thursday through Saturday to qualify. Every hour the top two speeds will advance to a bracket-style tournament competition on Sunday at 9 a.m. CT. All qualifiers will receive Jimmie Johnson's Anything With An Engine video game. Four participants will move on to advance for the opportunity to play Johnson.
The six finalists will earn a television displayed in the MyLowe's lounge, as well as a gaming console and video game, and if the winner can beat Johnson they will receive KSCS gear, 2012 Texas Motor Speedway season tickets, and a $480 Lowe's gift card.
Fans also will be able to register for MyLowe's at the lounge during race weekend and have the opportunity to win prizes by beating Johnson's time.
The MyLowe's display will be open Thursday, Nov. 3 from Noon-7 p.m.; Friday, Nov. 4 from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Saturday, Nov. 5 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.; and Sunday, Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to the start of the AAA Texas 500.
