‘Capture the Crown’ is a two-day-event to be held at the Richmond International Raceway during the Crown Royal “Your Name Here” 400. The program will features nine online ‘influencers’ competing in team play in a Scavenger Hunt to accomplish tasks for points. The team with the highest number of points at the end of the race will be named the winner.

The winning team will be invited to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada from November 28-30, 2011 for the “Crown Royal Race Matt” program. They will also receive a charity donation made in their name to a charity of their choice!

Thanks to an astonishing invitation from Crown Royal, NASCAR Race Mom is eagerly looking forward to participating in the ‘Capture the Crown’ event this weekend. (Expenses for this trip are provided by Diageo, the parent company of Crown Royal.)

The Scavenger Hunt will require me to speak with and photograph, contest winner, Matthew Hansen; Sprint Cup Driver, Matt Kenseth; Country Western Star, Rodney Atkins; The Crown Royal Master of Whiskey and Lieutenant General Richard C. Zilmer, of the U.S. Marine Corps. ‘Capture the Crown’ activities will include a Rodney Atkin's concert, pace car rides and whisky tasting.

Having watched my son Moses race in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West circuit for the last five years, NASCAR Race Mom has come to appreciate the fast paced action of short track racing. The opportunity to attend the “Crown Royal Presents The Matthew and Daniel Hansen 400” is like a dream come true. I have heard that RIR is the ideal blend of short track and intermediate speedway due to its high-speed corners and banked front-stretch.

NASCAR Race Mom will be blogging, facebooking, and tweeting as much as possible during the ‘Capture the Crown’ weekend. Please root for my team as we hunt for enough points to win the competition and win a trip to the November 28-30, 2011 for the “Crown Royal Race Matt” program.
