Smithfield and Albertsons Companies are teaming up to offer fans the ultimate racing experience: a chance to win and drive away with a replica of Petty’s 1967 Belvedere through the 2016 Winning 43 sweepstakes. The sweepstakes celebrates the anticipated 50th anniversary of the 1967 Plymouth Belvedere that drove racing legend Richard Petty, “The King,” into the history books with 27 wins during a single season.
Now through September 27, fans can enter for the Winning 43 experience by visiting any Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market, Market Street, Amigos and Carrs store, purchasing three or more Smithfield, Eckrich, Nathan’s Famous or Margherita branded products, and texting a photo of their receipt to 82257 along with a keyword found at their local store.
Fourteen lucky first-place winners will score an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Miami for the Homestead season finale race, where they each will receive a key to try powering up the King’s car during a celebratory key-turning ceremony. The winner whose key starts the engine will not only take home a replica of the car that allowed Petty to achieve more wins than any other car in racing history, but they’ll also get to take a ride with the King himself behind the wheel.
In addition, 70 second-place and third-place winners will receive top-of-the-line equipment for the perfect tailgate. Second-place winners will receive Richard Petty Motorsports No.43 Smithfield Racing YETI coolers and third-place winners will take home premium No.43 Smithfield Racing Weber Grills.
