Front Porch® Ice Cream "Best Dad In The South" Contest

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of Father's Day, Front Porch Carolina Churned Ice Cream is looking for nominees for the "Best Dad in the South" Contest.  So tell us about the man who has shaped your life and has helped make you the man you are today.  Of course he has to hail from the South and exude that special spirit.  Since Front Porch is about celebrating moments, what a better time to reflect on this than Father's Day.  Memories may take you back to that lazy hot summer day fly fishing when your dad told you about how he met and fell in love with your mother, or maybe it was on the farm tending cattle when dad surprised you with your own beautiful mare, or when your own son was born and he told you that you would be an amazing father with tears in his eyes. 

Front Porch wants you to share one photo that captures that special moment between father and son (daughters too!) that says, "I have the best dad in the South."  Make sure to include a caption in 50 words or less why the picture best depicts how your father is hands-down the greatest influence in your life and your hero.

Think along the lines of Ned Jarrett, two-time NASCAR champion and NASCAR Hall of Fame recipient, yet he'd say one of his proudest achievement is being father to his son, Dale Jarrett. Dale followed in his father's footsteps and won the NASCAR Winston Cup Series championship and is currently an ESPN commentator. Father and son both born and raised in North Carolina, currently live in the same city. Dale exclaims that his dad, Ned, has been instrumental in motivating his career and by his side to see his successes.  

Boys love their cars, especially the fast ones. As Dale and Ned Jarrett are the official spokesmen for Front Porch we will be awarding one father and son a unique chance to race a competition car on one of 7 legendary race tracks. A gift certificate to the Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure will include 20-high speed laps each with a chance to go up to 170 miles per hour. This will be a fun-filled moment the winning father and son duo will never forget.

Completed entries can be submitted by either mail-in entry or online entry.  Mail photo with write up to Front Porch's Best Dad In The South Contest, P.O. Box 30545, Charlotte, NC 28230 or email photo as attachment with write up to with "Front Porch's Best Dad In The South Contest" as the email Subject Title. Entries must be received by June 15, 2013 by 5:00 p.m. EST. One winner will be chosen and notified during the week of June 17, 2013 and will receive two gift certificates to the Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure (prize package valued at $2,000) along with two coupons, each for a free pint of Front Porch Ice Cream.
