On May 2, 2011 the ‘Winner Determination’ phase begins and judges will pick the winner of the grand prize. The winning entry will be publicly announced at the All-Star Races in Charlotte, NC on May 20 and May 21, 2011. (Perfect for May Lyme Disease Awareness Month.)

From Toyota Sponsafier- “We're happy to let you know you’re a winner in the Toyota Racing's Sponsafy Your Ride Contest Round III! You've won [a] customized helmet featuring your "Sponsafied" car graphics, which has an approximate retail value of $1,250.”

The 2011 Racing Lyme Disease Awareness car was designed and entered in the contest in honor of Dr. Charles Ray Jones of New Haven, CT and his “kids” with Lyme disease. Therefore, the winner's helmet with the Lyme disease awareness design on it, if we are approved pending verification, will be displayed in Dr. Jones office where visitors, parents and his kids can enjoy it.

Again, congratulations for your success in Racing Lyme Disease Awareness and many thanks for voting!

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 required.

Last year over 78,000 cars entered the Toyota Sponsafier contest. Our Lyme Disease Awareness car came in 15th place (close to 8,000 votes) and remained on display on the website for a couple of months where it was seen by countless people! Cars with the highest numbers of votes in the first round will be featured again in the final round where the cars will be displayed 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 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!

Be sure to click on the 3-D view of the car and see the tribute to Dr. Charles Ray Jones (roof of car). 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 Lyme and tick borne diseases. We are also celebrating his 82nd birthday this month- on March 14, 2011. If you don’t know Dr. Jones’ story please visit the site dedicated to him, his staff and his precious kids.

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.
