Royal Purple has kicked off an exciting new giveaway that will land one lucky race fan behind the pits during a Tudor United SportsCar Championship race. The “Royal Treatment” sweepstakes kicked off on May 4 and runs through the end of May, and this might be one of the coolest contests out there right now; the grand prize winner receives an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2015 Lone Star Le Mans at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX.

The highlight of this prize is, of course, being embedded with the Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 team for the September 19th race, but he or she will also have the opportunity to meet Tudor and IndyCar driver Townsend Bell. As a little icing on the cake, the winner will also be able to ride shotgun around CotA in the pace car.

As the sweepstakes name suggests, the winner will definitely get the royal treatment as the prize package includes airfare for two, hotel, meals and transportation, not to mention the fact that it sounds like they will be decked out in Royal Purple racing apparel. Entrants are automatically registered by either redeeming a $2.00 mail-in rebate for particular Royal Purple products or you can just enter online here. Either way, make sure you enter by May 31.
