MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 28, 2012) - Penske Racing will reward its most loyal and creative fans through "Penske Pride," a unique social media contest that will run through the remainder of the 2012 racing season.
Fans of the Penske Racing organization that follow its teams that compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series, as well as the IZOD IndyCar Series, through Twitter @PenskeRacing are encouraged to show their pride by tweeting their creative photos with the hashtag - #PenskePride.
Photo submissions will be accepted Thursday-Wednesday during each race week with the Penske Pride Photo of the Week winner selected each Thursday.

At the conclusion of each month, Penske Racing will select a Photo of the Month winner who will receive autographed items from a Penske Racing driver.
Each monthly winner will be eligible for the Grand Prize Penske Pride Photo of the Year, to be determined by a vote of @PenskeRacing Twitter followers. Voting will take place between November 30 and December 14, 2012. The Grand Prize winner will be selected no later than December 21. The winner will receive the Penske Racing VIP Experience which will include:
