Verizon Offers Indy 500 Sweepstakes to Existing Customers

Verizon Wireless has served as a valuable part of the Verizon IndyCar Series through recent years and is no doubt enjoying the recent growth of the series. With the coming of the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500, the mobile communications company announced a sweepstakes giveaway for existing customers that promises a priceless experience for any IndyCar fan.

The newly renovated Hulman Terrace Club features great viewing on the outside of the front stretch beginning at the exit of Turn 4 at the hallowed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. There are premium concession options, a covered bar and some of the best views in the house. The opportunity to enjoy the Greatest Spectacle in Racing from this angle doesn’t come cheap, however, with tickets starting at $1,750 a pop. Verizon is giving away two of these amazing seats to the winner of the Indy 500 VIP Experience Sweepstakes package.

Winners will also receive two tickets to the IPL 500 Festival Parade, Miller Lite Card Day and Keybank 500 Festival Snakepit Ball, and a replica IndyCar helmet signed by every driver of the 101st Indy 500 – which makes for an entire weekend of excitement.

But what about those travel costs? Verizon will cover those too! Roundtrip airfare is included and a stay for two at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis, which acted as the world’s largest billboard for the 100th running last year.

The entire package is worth nearly $20,000, but it’s safe to say any IndyCar fan would find the entire experience priceless with the amount of access to the series they’ll have with the behind-the-scenes paddock tour that’s also included.

The sweepstakes ends April 15 and can be entered by visiting, logging into an existing Verizon account and going to the Smart Rewards page.
