Your Video About Saving Gas Could Win $5,000

The ultimate gas-saving strategy

The ultimate gas-saving strategy

A group called the Alliance to Save Energy has paired up with NASCAR and the Indy Racing League to sponsor a clever contest. They invite anyone to submit a two-minute video that illustrates one or more of the Drive Smarter Challenge campaign’s gas- and money-saving tips. They’ve got dozens of these, ranging from turning off the air conditioning to curbing your road rage.

Gas prices are creeping up again. But you know lots of reasons to save energy. If you need some prodding, here is a list of six. Now get smart and create a clever video about how to do it.

The first 80 people who submit valid entries (mention that you saw this story on CarGurus) will receive a $25 ExxonMobil Gift Card and a Car Care Council Car Care Guide. Entrants will also be eligible for some really cool prizes. Contest judges will select the finalists, and the public will vote for the winners.

  • Grand Prize: $5,000
  • Second Prize: Choose between one VIP NASCAR Race Package (two tickets and two garage/pit passes to a NASCAR race event) OR one VIP Indy Racing League Package (two tickets and two garage/pit lane passes to an Indy race event, plus a ride in a specially modified Indy car driven by a pro driver)
  • Third Prize: Whichever second-prize package hasn’t been chosen
  • Fourth Prize: A set of 4 Michelin Energy Saver All Season Tires (or comparable tires for the winner’s vehicle), a one-year AAA membership, and two Silver Spoke League of American Bicyclists memberships.

  1. Thanks for the terrific story on the Drive $marter Challenge video contest. The Alliance to Save Energy looks forward to video submissions from your blog readers and are delighted that you will also be featuring your readers’ videos on your blog. I’ll be posting a link to this story on my personal twitter account (PRlady007). Just one notation — the Indy race package, including the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a ride in a modified Indy race car with a pro-driver– was on donated by our partner Bryan Herta Autosport. — Rozanne Weissman, Alliance to Save Energy
