2010 Motorsports Stocks Contest

Everyone can play!

With the economy coming around, it's time to consider investing again. But even if you don't have money to invest, you can play our 2010 Motorsports Stocks Contest.

To play, you simply pick 10 stocks that are directly, or indirectly, related to the motorsports industry. The 10 should include a mix of OEM manufacturers (e.g., Harley-Davidson, Honda, Yamaha, Kandi, etc...), energy companies (e.g., BP, Cheron, Repsol, etc..) basic materials providers (e.g., Alcoa, Dow Chemical, etc..) and aftermarket accessory & gear manufacturers (e.g., Garmin, Goodyear, Fairchild Sports etc...). You may also include finance or insurance companies that provide services to the motorsports industry. For the contest you will be buying one share of each.

You may only pick stocks from the NYSE, NASDAQ or AMEX exchanges and the PINK sheet as well. Your stocks stand as is from the day you select them and cannot be traded during the 12 month period. Should a stock become delisted, the final sell price will be calculated in the year end value of your portfolio.

All entries need to be emailed in by 1/31/2010. Your choices will be calculated at the rate the stock opened on 1/4/2010.

Prizes are as follows.

  • 1st place: Your choice of 2 passes to Rally in the Gorge 2011 or a gift certificate equivalent for the Sound RIDER! online store.
  • 2nd place: Your choice of 1 pass to Rally in the Gorge 2011 or a gift certificate equivalent for the Sound RIDER! online store.
  • 3 place: A $50 gift certificate to the Sound RIDER! online store.
