MARTINSVILLE, Va., Nov. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Goody's® and spokesperson Dale Earnhardt Jr. launched "Ride with Dale Jr." today, a new contest that offers fans the chance to win a special ride along with Dale in the Goody's No. 88 car along with VIP tickets to watch him drive the Goody's car in 2016. The contest was announced at the Goody's® Headache Relief Shot® 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
"We feel so lucky to continue to have Dale Jr. as a partner on the Goody's team," said Joseph Juliano, brand director for Goody's®.

"Working with Goody's the past few years has been an enjoyable experience for me and everyone at JR Motorsports," Earnhardt Jr. said. "They're a longstanding supporter of our sport, and they continue to be innovators in creating new fast pain relief products and thinking up creative ways to reach our fans. I'm excited about 'Ride with Dale Jr.' we're launching where a fan is going to get to experience what it's like to get in a race car with me.
In addition to launching the "Ride with Dale Jr." fan contest, Goody's® introduced the new Mixed Fruit Blast Headache Powder and Back & Body Relief Single Dose at the Goody's® Fast Relief Zone™ at the Martinsville Speedway. The Mixed Fruit Blast Headache Powder provides fast pain relief of minor body aches and pains in a new, great-tasting Mixed Fruit Flavor. The new Liquid Fast Relief for Back & Body Single Dose provides liquid-fast pain relief of minor body aches and pains.
Goody's Powder, part of the Prestige Brands portfolio (NYSE-PBH), became the first non-automotive sponsor in NASCAR in 1977 when it signed the legendary Richard Petty as a spokesperson. Petty's partnership with Goody's thus started one of the longest-running relationships in sports promotion, which continues. Earnhardt, the defending winner of the Goody's® Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway, is a third-generation NASCAR driver and two-time Daytona 500 winner. He has won the National Motorsports Press Association Most Popular Driver Award for 12 years in a row.
