Jason White and sister Kelly joined Nancy and
the SportsBlast team at the track to enjoy a full
weekend of events as winners of the Kellys Sweepstakes.
Jason was our
big sweeps winner, chosen at random from among
nearly 20,000 entrants gathered in less than a
three week period.
He hails from New Orleans and “lost everything”
in the one two punch of Katrina and Rita. “This
couldn’t have come at a better time,”
said Jason when he got over the idea that the
call to tell him he was in victory lane was a
prank. “Are you for real?! I’ve never
won anything in my life.”
It was about as real as it could get and the
Kellys team at Nascar.com
provided Jason and his guests with tickets to
all the races from the Gatorade 125s through the
Daytona 500. But it’s all about access!
In addition, Jason was able to get a tour of the
garage area and even get into a practice session
when the pit was hot.
Nancy and Kellys producer Peter Kjenaas toured
around the track with Jason and Kelly on both
Saturday and Sunday, taking in the infield, Fan
Zone and even the Television compound.
“I don’t want to go home!”
said Jason. It’s easy to see why that would
be since, like so many others in New Orleans,
home is a big unknown.
