EDIT- Putting this link up top so you can vote easier!

http://www.sponsafier.com/share/165020

``````````````````````````````````````````````````
I haven't changed out an engine or done much work on cars since getting sick years ago ...

But last night I designed a race car and entered it in a contest!

The winner of the contest gets a bunch of stuff- a week long paid trip to the NASCAR race in NC, hotels, plane tickets, cash, etc.

If we won the contest, I'd donate the prizes to two Lyme patients who are able to travel and enjoy the excitement.

But the best part... the car is designed to educate others about Lyme disease. If chosen as the winner, the race team would put the Lyme design on a real race car that would be seen by millions!

The design is going through the review process and being judged to see if it meets all the preliminary standards. If it passes that hurdle, people can vote on the car they like best.

Millions of people watch the races ... so I am hoping it will bring attention to Lyme disease, especially in the south (North Carolina, etc) where it is desperately needed.

I'll let you know when I hear from the judges!

[Big Grin]

PS. Since I don't Twitter or Face Book... I would need your help to spread the word so folks can vote for our lean green Lyme Machine!

Wow, TC good idea. It could read some sort of catchy message that got others thinking about their loved one that's ill with ????

or even get a loved one thinking that "hey, this lyme stuff must be an important thing. Maybe I should be more supportive of my wife, sister, mom or friend, that's living with this lyme disease thing?"

Just Don said.. "I "THINK" we should have YOU for a driver!!! (IF) you promise not to get lost on a circle track!!"

Funny one you are! HA! If I could promise to not loose the car keys it would help!

[lol]

Map... good ideas! I had a hard time putting all we know about Lyme on the side of a race car.. but I did try. And you are right. If we can raise awareness it would be nice!

Hey there in Jackson... nice place! Thanks for the offer to get the word out! But don't be disappointed if we don't win. It's a long shot at best. At least we'll be trying. And lots of folks will have a chance to see "Lyme" that wouldn't otherwise.

Hey Robin 28573659...

Good ideas... and truth is.. we may need them.

I just heard from the judges... posting it below.

Yep.. the news just came in and the design was NOT approved. The note said..

```````````````````````````````````````````````````

Unfortunately, something is holding up the approval process. Now don't fret. This doesn't mean you can't get into the competition. It just means you need to go back and clean up your design a little bit.

That means making sure that there are no privately owned images, or content that could be deemed inappropriate or offensive to our audience. Please feel free to review the rules section of the contest here. Good Luck, and thanks for participating.

```````````````````````````````````````````````````
UGGGGG!

Reviewing the rules section is like reading Webster's Dictionary from cover to cover... lots of fine print and legal stuff.

I may have been one of the few who actually read them before I submitted the design... but I'll have to go back and re-read them and try again.

I did mention the car manufacturer and the driver's name... in a nice way of course ... but that may be a violation of their rules? I dunno?

We'll see. Back to the drawing board!

Maybe they're talking about even naming a topic like Lyme? Would be nice to be able to refer to something -

You said: If we can raise awareness it would be nice -

How about: If we can race awareness it would be nice -

Don, I don't know about having TC as the driver? The woman can be a tad crazy sometimes? She could go into a lyme rage and turn the race into bumper cars.

Hey Robin235638264..

See... I used your catchy phrase! Good idea! Thanks!!!

[Big Grin]

Map.. your post makes me hurt just reading it! OUCH on those bumper cars!

HA!

Jackson... Yes, Kyle and rage may go together? Although Stewart might also fit that bill too! HA!

Glad we all don't have to get behind the wheel of a race car... for sure!

Congrats, Ms TC, on your recent efforts to race awareness for Lyme disease, drawing on everything you know...guess you figured out the manual...(yes, you may color your car, etc)

So, since Just Don thinks you should be the designated driver, maybe it's Let's go racing Lyme Awareness boys and girls!

Your exercise for the next couple months is to walk in circles, in the direction that this race goes - wouldn't want you to go in the wrong direction, 'cause then you might be a hazard on the track.

If you need to chat with someone about how not to get dizzy when turning in circles, I've got a skater referral in mind.

After you've mastered - or mistressed - turning in circles while remaining upright, you can then add sound effects:

vroooom wroooom No roooom for Lyme!

Hey TC,

Stewart's my guy... but he's back in a Chevy now! So... hope it is Kyle in the "Lyme Machine!" It will get lots of attention!

Got to check out your link and let everyone know about the most important car!!

Great work!

Done..noticed that we can vote once a day so will trying and remember to go back tomorrow.

When I first came down this, I thought it would be great to travel across the US, staying at campgrounds, set up a science board and provide info

This car would attack attention for that.

And here is the list of races where the car would be seen IF we won!

YIPPEE! This is great! Thank you all. 262!!!

It would be wonderful if we could make it to the top 10 list! They go by the number of votes.

So let's keep voting and hoping! I also didn't see too many with high numbers, but I also didn't go through all 7,000 plus cars there either.

Who knows... we MIGHT have a chance? Too cool of we did!

Appreciate you all spreading the word! Keep up the good work!

This is one funny site, looking at all those cars! None as important as this cause - [Smile]

If you click on gallery and then featured, you will supposedly see the cars with the highest vote counts. I'm guessing 'bout that.

I think TC's car has a good chance to come in 2nd, after Hugs and Kittens with 37,024 votes! They must have gotten a ton of elementary school districts to vote for it!

Hugs and Kittens and Lyme, in that order!

On second perusal, however, it says this car is sponsored by sponsafier, so maybe the host site has done this cutesy animal car - ?

Meaning that if the voting keeps going up daily on your car, TC, you have a chance to come in with the top vote after the sponsor's car!

Hugs and Kittens was the one featured in the TV commercial. I have to admit I laughed to see Kyle Bush dressed in a pink jumpsuit that has baby kittens, rainbows and ponies on it.

[lol]

BUT.. you are right. I realized this contest is judged in the first phase by votes alone... the most wins or gets in the top 10 finals.

So please do keep voting and ask friends to do the same!

You can send these easy instructions out to others, if you will please?

I see - I didn't think that many kids could be organized to vote like that! Unless we have kittens on the keys...

It says the top ten qualifiers all get helmets - looks like you're headed for some head protection at least!

Holy Toledo Batman! As of noon we had 624 votes!

That means overnight (12 hours) we got another 120 plus votes!!!

That's the way to do it!

 -


This is getting exciting! We MAY have a chance!

Here is the link so you can vote now if you haven't done so today!

And how about getting the kids involved? They can certainly help out with this fun project and spread the word to their friends.

A fun project that the whole family can enjoy!

TC,

Why doesn't your race car show up in the featured which was supposedly the cars with the highest votes.

You have more votes than most of the cars in the featured area?????

Hey Needs...

I can't find an answer to that, so I will make a guess.

Each car, from the day it is approved and registered, has 15 days to get votes... and ONLY 15 days.

The car (hugs & kittens) with 30 some thousand votes... and the Love Car (529 votes) are the ones featured in the TV ads announcing this contest ... and those ads have been running a while now.

So I am thinking...

Could it be that the "featured cars" are only "featured" after the voting closes and there is a final total for that car?

OR..

Do they just put up randomly selected cars there and change them out once in a while?

Seems to me I saw different cars there with only a few votes each at one point.

So I don't know ... but MAYBE our car will be featured eventually? That would be nice!

With over 8,000 cars now registered that are competing against us we would get some attention if that were to happen.

I just remembered I saw a couple of cars at one point with over 1,000 votes, so my guess is they just change the "featured" ones at random?

Great! Keep posting the totals if you will. Nice to see it climbing!

MAYBE we will eventually reach 1,000?

Tutu... looking good! I don't have to check cause I can see your totals! Thanks for posting them!

And Robin 4932764... As of right now...

I'm wondering if I should go to sleep now or not?

Will it happen.. will we hit the big ONE THOUSAND while I'm sleeping? I'm too excited to think about it!

I think I need some ice cream, for sure!

[lol]

You all let me know!!!

Just got a message from Lymefriends - the message is being sent out!

Hm - what kind of ice cream do you get for this occasion?

Speedo - it's melted already so goes down fast.
Tick Bonbons
Anything mint green.
Lymapolitan - vanilla, chocolate and lime.
Co-confections
Ice caream

My cousin also designed a car when I sent the word out to vote for TC's.

The URL for that is:

http://www.sponsafier.com/#/gallery/view/171573

You can vote for both once a day.

Sheri has a long way to go to catch up to TC's....but it was nice she wanted to get involved and support the cause.

Hey Robin 686435... That's great! Sure appreciate our friends getting involved!

[Big Grin]

KAM... You make me laugh! I have trouble too seeing the numbers! BUT.. now we can rest assured we have at least 1,000!

And what a slick looking car she designed! Beautiful!!! And she has Michael Waltrip (55) as her driver too! We all gotta love Michael!

I am so happy to hear she, and you of course, are supporting Lyme Disease Awareness. Please thank her for me!!!!

[Big Grin]

Dilly,

That WAS the news that made my day! Kinda funny how such silly things can make us smile! It sure breaks up these winter blues!

Thanks!

TC...I think I goofed up when I posted what I thought was the link to your car on FB...

I wrote something like support lyme disease...

But, posted the link for creating a car..

I think that is how the other car got designed by my cousin..

But, my thinking is in pieces now a days so who knows.

All of this has just been plain fun...something most of us can do no matter how limited we are each day.

Hey TC!

It's me again! Just voted AGAIN and we are at 1120!! WOW!! The word is getting out!

Now... you know how I feel about "My Tony (Stewart #14)"!!! He just has to get back in the winners circle!!!

Oh... just to let everyone know... we had warm weather here in TN yesterday, and this morning I pulled a tiny little tick off the back of my leg - first one of the new season for me!!

It's in bag - anybody want it???

The thought of that tick TN gives me the hibby jeebies.

Just did a scan of the pages for cars designed....so many have very few votes....so we are looking good.

Can't figure out how to find out which ones are in the top 10

Hey KAM..

You did fine. I am happy to see such a nice car and the talent she has! NEXT time maybe she will help me with a design?

I've never done anything this goofy before.. well, yes I have, of course I have.... but I've never even considered designing a race car.

And you are right. This is just a little bit of plain old fun meant to brighten up a LONG dreary winter.

And the timing for the final selection and big event, May 2010, would be right in time for May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month!

So keep voting and letting us know our new totals. OK?

[Big Grin]

Hey Jackson... you Tennessee Flower Child you...

You will have to have Stewart run over that little sucker with his big tires! After all, we know how much he loves his Goodyear tires! HA!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klOQyVtm6Qk&feature=related

That made me laugh when it happened and still makes me laugh!

Gotta love the bad boys of racing! And as long as Mark Martin doesn't have a chance of winning .... I don't mind if Stewart spends a little time in the winner's circle!

[lol]

BTW-

Meet our driver... Joey Lagano. His nick name is "Sliced Bread", as in the greatest thing since.

Joey is the youngest driver to ever enter the Daytona 500 and holds many records for being the "youngest driver" to have many different accomplishments in the field of racing. He is only 19 now.

At age 18 he was racing in Delaware at Dover's Monster Mile Track when this happened.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPACInxXuEU

A tough guy, for sure!

When entering the contest I had to pick from several wonderful drivers, which was the hardest part because they are all so good!

I went with Joey because he is highly recommended by my favorite driver, Mark Martin.

But more importantly, he smiles a lot and you can tell just by listening to him that he is doing exactly what life is all about, and win or not, he is having fun!

Check out that smiling face!

Here is more on Joey...

TC,

Love Mark Martin too! If Tony can't win, I'd be tickled to see Mark there (my generation!)!!!

Maybe Tony could splat this teeny tick with his "favorite Goodyears!"

Joey is doing very well - it is too funny that Zippy has to pick the Budweiser for him at the Daytona Draw - oh well, he'll be 21 before you know it!

1,358 at about midnight! Yee-haw!

Hey Bird Brain! Yeah, you... Robin 4826584.

You MUST know I have NO ice cream in the house! You are just TRYING to make me crazy, huh?

[lol]

Tutu... 1 out of 2 ain't bad. Unlike you, I forget to vote but I do check the numbers! So goes the saying.. with both our brains together we might have enough for one regular one!

[lol]

Good deal Tracy! Thanks so much! We are getting a nice response and folks are having fun with it. That is great! I'll send out an update in a few days with a reminder for those of us who need a reminder!

[Big Grin]

TN... Yes, he can drive 180 mph for 3 or 4 hours straight and get paid to do it... but can't have a cold beer afterward! Too funny!

````````
Imagine.... thanks for checking and posting! I stopped in earlier on my way to do something and was able to get your update rather than having to go there. Great!

Yo Dill Pickle... I saw that note. So you need a reminder too? HA!

So I thought I'd check back in 24 hours later than last night, and what a difference a day makes -

now at 1378, which is almost 50% more than last night's 934, when you were wondering if you'd make 1000!

So, no ice caream? Well then, bird brain says snow cones will have to do for now, with any edible green liquid tossed on top...

Ha - just saw Bill's post - a little picture of what's going on - we're already 3 votes higher than three minutes ago - sorta like a leaky faucet...

I keep getting asked where we stand in the vote count. Since there is no way to check it from that view point... I have no clue.

Tonight I did a small random sampling and found that most cars (90% approx. guess) have under 100 votes.

I certainly can't go through 8,000 plus pages to check them all... but I did go through 400 pages to check. There were several with high votes.

Here are the results listing cars with more votes than ours has now in the 400 pages checked.

Checked Page 6,000 to Page 6,200

Dreamer 2,887 votes (pg 6150)


Checked Page 7,000 to Page 7,200

Greyhound Adoptions 9,090 (pg. 7026)

Gay Car 136,810 (pg. 7079)

Drive Wild 1,825 (pg. 7105)

Cry Baby 56,279 (pg. 7114)

So keep voting!!!
