SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For race fan John Pielock of Chicopee, Massachusetts, it's the dream of a lifetime: a trip for two to this month's NASCAR races in Bristol, Tennessee, including opportunities to meet racing legend Rusty Wallace and David Reutimann, driver of the No. 64 Aspen Dental Toyota. Pielock was randomly selected from thousands who entered a contest sponsored by Aspen Dental, a sponsor of Rusty Wallace Racing (RWR).
Pielock and his guest will serve as VIP Honorary Pit Crew Members for Reutimann's No. 64 Aspen Dental team in Bristol. Additionally, he will enjoy two tickets for the weekend's races and covered travel expenses.
A lifelong Rusty Wallace fan, Pielock is excited to attend this year's race at the legendary track.
"This is fantastic. My family and friends are all envious. I've been a big fan of NASCAR all my life," said Pielock. "I've always wanted to go to Bristol since it's such a unique venue, I really can't wait to get there."
Pielock has been a NASCAR fan for thirty years and has closely followed Wallace's racing successes over the years. Pielock grew up watching his brother drive his Mustang at tracks throughout New England and is finally fulfilling his dream to watch a race at Bristol.
In the same competitive spirit as will be seen at the Bristol race, Pielock had to hold a lottery among friends to select who would be lucky enough to join him for this once in a lifetime experience. Pielock will be taking his hometown friend, Edward Visconti, along for the all-access trip provided by Aspen Dental and RWR.
"We both realize this is an opportunity of a lifetime," said Pielock.
"I'm looking forward to meeting John at the race in Bristol," said Wallace. "We're looking forward to a strong finish to the season and are hoping to give John and our other fans a reason to celebrate."
Aspen Dental will be the primary sponsor of RWR's No. 64 car at Bristol, with Reutimann behind the wheel. One of the largest and fastest growing networks of dental care providers in the U.S., Aspen Dental has featured racing legend, broadcaster, and team owner Rusty Wallace in television and print advertising.
