March 10, 2011- Lyme Disease Awareness Race Car!

The race is on! You can help educate others about Lyme disease by voting for the Lyme Disease Awareness Race Car.

We have 15 days to get as many votes as possible! You can vote once a day by clicking the link below. It is easy, free and no registering is required.

http://www.sponsafier.com/share/46869

Last year over 78,000 cars entered the Toyota Sponsafier contest. Our Lyme Disease Awareness car came in 15th place (with almost 8,000 votes) and remained on display for a couple of months where it was seen by countless people!

Cars with the highest numbers of votes in the first round this year will be featured again in the final round where they will be displayed even more prominently.

Our theme this year is ``Get it Right, Treat the Bite!'' We want to encourage people to think about Lyme disease when they are bitten by a tick and to seek medical care immediately.

Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Ehrlichia, Bartonella and a host of infectious organism can be found in ticks, so why wait? After all, prevention is the best medicine!

This year our driver is Michael Waltrip- two time winner of the Daytona 500. With him behind the wheel and you at the voting pole each day, we should do quite well!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Waltrip

Be sure to click on the 3-D view of the car and see the tribute to Dr. Charles Ray Jones (on the roof).

Our Lyme Disease Awareness efforts this year are dedicated to Dr. Jones and his wonderful staff for all they do to help the children who suffer with chronic Lyme and tick borne diseases.

We are also celebrating Dr. Jones 82nd birthday this month- March 14, 2011. If you don't know Dr. Jones' story please visit the site dedicated to him, his staff and his precious kids.

www.DrJonesKids.com

Aside from raising Lyme awareness across the internet, the winning car (grand prize) will be featured at the 2011 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race this summer where it can be seen by millions of fans via television coverage and news reports.

The winner will also receive a prize package of Toyota Racing Gear and be honored with a visit from a (real) NASCAR driver.

Should our car win, all prizes will be donated to individual(s) dealing with chronic Lyme disease.

For more information check out the ``Racing Awareness'' page at www.DrJonesKids.com

Please feel free to share this announcement with your email, twitter and face book friends (see sample posts below). Encourage them to vote for our Racing Lyme Disease Awareness Car!

Boogity, boogity, boogity... Let's go racing, boys!

For the record... the car was approved and I got the official email on Thursday evening at 6:33 PM. The note I got from them said ...

"Congratulations! Your Sponsafier design, LYME DISEASE AWARENESS, has been officially approved!

You now have 15 days to rally as many votes as you can. It's not that much time, so be sure to sign in soon and share your design on Facebook, Twitter and wherever else you think it will get noticed."

I got the websites updated and the first announcements out by email and posted on here about 10:30 PM.

So.... our "24 hour period" would run approximately from 10:30 PM to 10:30 PM each day.

Each day we should record the total number of votes at 10:30 so we can watch them climb.

537 votes after voting. I'm glad I'm subscribed to this thread, the emails remind me to vote every morning.

I wonder if people are not seeing this thread because it is in general?

Days are ticking by.........votes are needed !!!

GREAT RACING YOU ALL!

You are doing absolutely wonderful racing Lyme Disease Awareness! In 4 days we have almost 1,000 votes!

We are getting it out everywhere - facebook bigtime, lymefriends, Paul's groups, some of the state groups -

actually, if any of you could post on your yahoo state groups, that would be great - with another week and a half to go, I think we stand a good chance to go to the top o' the heap this time!!

We only have about 50 more votes to get in 15th place!!!

Hope by the time I get up tomorrow we are on page 3 instead of page 4!

That assures us many more views for racing Lyme Awareness!

I think as it climbs we can get more people excited about voting too..

lets just hope the competition does not have the same momentum

it seems there are like 4 cars still active getting good votes above the Lyme Car

the rest of the top 15 are done with votes so we are battling with like 4 others to reach 7000 Votes

the thing I find strange is the home page says 7 days left to vote

but the car page says 15.

I wonder if the entire event ends in 7 days?

this just seems a little strange... but pressing on regardless.

The contest for some may be over in 7 days, but each car has 15 days from the time the car was accepted. There is a designated time period (buried in the rules) that has a table of dates to follow.

Last year the winning car had LOTS more than 7,000 votes and cars can still be entered before the deadline. I'll bet the old posts are here, let me look.

We were in 15th place with almost 8,000 votes... so we ned to just keep climbing as much as possible to have a big cushion.

Let me go check.

Some notes from last year...

We were 7 votes short of going from 15th place up to 14th place.

We were 5 votes ABOVE being in 16th place.

(That means ALL votes are important.)

Several people kept track of the votes here and this was one of the final posts just before we made 15th place... posted by Dilly.

One more note Dilly made last year... which I think is BIG news....

"The racing website, even before things got into full swing, was attracting over 300,000 unique visitors A DAY."

So let's move our car up the track so it can be seen by those folks! That is over 1.2 million viewers in 4 days.

When it says the contest is over in 7 days, 6 days, etc, it means March 20 is the last day to enter new cars. But everyone's car gets 15 days of voting, meaning April 6 (15 days after March 20) is the last day for voting in this first phase.

Which means...if anyone's feeling creative and wants to make a car design, it's fun to do - just let us know - Paul's got quite a votin' gang... lol

Paul - it started in February.

Here is the way they determine the finalists. It isn't JUST votes.

Finalist Selection: During the Finalist Selection Phase, qualified judges selected by Sponsor in its sole discretion (the "Qualified Judges") will review and judge all Designs according to the following criteria (the "Judging Criteria"):

Originality of the Design when compared to other Designs (20%);

Feasibility of the Design to be applied to a two-seater NASCAR show car (20%);

Creativity demonstrated by the application of user-uploaded images and/or pre-loaded Sponsafier graphics to the Design to the Design (20%);

Ability of the Design to inspire consumers (20%);

and Public Appeal (20%).

Subject to the entrant's compliance with these Official Rules, the ten (10) entrants with the highest-scoring Designs will be deemed potential Finalist Prize winners and will advance to the Public Voting II Phase.

Sorry I missed your posts in between mine. I was busy thinking. HA!

Bird brain (remember that is what I called you last year during the races)...

Thanks for answering Paul's questions.

And yes, we are now on the 3rd page!!! 15th place!

HOLY COW!!!

Hey Tu Tu... you got a cow picture?

[Big Grin]

I'm heading to bed gang... so keep the tank full and the tires in good shape. I think we will be doing some REAL good racing tomorrow!

And thanks!

[Big Grin]

Oh... gotta tell you this. Too cute!

I was with my darling little grand daughter the other day and as you know, keeping up with a two year old IS challenging.

To keep her occupied and me not walking another MILE up the dirt road pulling a wagon with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and her rock, a sea shell and a quarter in it...

I put her in the car and let her "drive" it.

Of course I had the keys in my pocket and it wasn't running, but she didn't know any better.

I turned up the music loud, which she loves, and taught her to stand up behind the wheel and lean her little shoulder into the steering wheel so the horn would beep.

Then I would wave my arms when the horn beeped and say loudly...

"Get out of the way! Get out of the way!"

When I was leaving late that night to go home I tooted the horn for a good bye to the family when I was out at the end of the driveway.

My son told me the next day the little girl was outside with him when I left and beeped the horn ... and when I beeped he heard her say ...

"Get out of the way! Get out of the way!"

[lol]

vroom...reporting for race car duty! I've have been voting every day, but couldn't get here til now.

I'll be happy to post a message on my facebook page, and same as last year, will send a request to multiple email lists, including dear hubby's, whose contacts really kicked up some dust last time around.

1,800 is an awesome start!!! Can't wait to lap some of the others!

AMAZING!

We are now in 10th place!

You can see us there on the second page under "most votes".

ElaineG- You still voting? Hope so!

Imitchy- Good for you!!! Thanks!

Jaqui- My bet is I just spelled that wrong. But I am glad you are voting too! Wonderful!!!

Kam- so nice you are working with us to burn rubber off dem tires!

Flower Child- Did you vote today? If so, that helped put us in 10th place and we thank you!

TuTu... thanks for working in the pit crew too! Of course dropping your drawers all the time like you do... it might be better to have you out along the track to distract the other drivers!

Tracy- Do you believe TuTu has a giraffe in the mix? Some people! HA!

Bird Brain 3443456- Can you check those shocks to be sure they are holding up? You're doing a grand job!

Paul Mall- Thanks for the reports and for spreading the word. I can't seem to find how to tell the number of days left for each of the cars for voting, so your reports do help!

And catching up to the party is none other than Dilly!!! Good to see you here! Now get those overalls on and get to work!

[lol]

Can you believe we are in 10th place?

Amazing....

TC I vote every morning. Then I go to my hubby's computer and vote for him while he is away on business. Hey, somebody has to cast his vote [Wink]

I'm going to go out to the store and get some Depends and send them to you TC. You get so excited [woohoo]

I think when, yes when, we get to the top five, you are going to
lose it. (Not mentally, either ) [Big Grin] The Depends should come in handy !!

We're going to the top, everyone!! This has got to be written up as the greatest collective Lyme activist activity in awhile, if ever -

I was wondering when Ms Dilly would join the party. I read the thread TC posted from last year's run - can you all believe that Dilly looked through most of the thousands of cars entered to report on whether they were still running and if any threat to us! Now that's dedication!

Rday! Glad you joined the Pit Crew!

With all that woo hoo'in, well, it seems the rest of you are just plain goofy!

But I like goofy in a pit crew!

[lol]

Did you know with less than 60 votes we can blow the doors off the state police car as we fly past them?

[lol] [lol]

And when we do... we will be in 9th place!!!!

Woooooo hooooo to all of you!

[Big Grin]

Now I GOT to get back to other Lyme business. But let me know the updates! I'll check back later!

And slick, don't think I missed that "Depends" comment.

You just got the "clean the garage stall floor" duty for that!

And that dark stuff staining the floor is OIL, not me getting too excited!

We need some Lyme radio as we going flying along -

Here's one:
(to the tune of "If I Had A Hammer")

If I had a Lyme car, I'd race it in the mor-or-ning,

I'd race it in the eve-ning, all over this la-and!

It's the car of AWARENESS!

It's the car of QUICK TREE-EAT-MENT!

It's the CARE between my brothers and my sisters,

All over this la-a-a-and!!
