NAPA Fanniversary

Posted: July 1, 2006 by Neeraj in Editorials, NAPA, Off-Topic

Since past few days I’ve put up a banner of NAPA Fanniversary. And since it starts from today [1st July], I thought I’ll write what it is all about and why I decided to put the banner here.

Basically NAPA Filters is celebrating its 40th Anniversary [hence the term NAPA FANNIVERSARY] and in the celebration they are giving away few prizes for next 40 days. The details of prizes and all is as follows [from their official press-release]:

Consumers who register online or in person can win:

  • 40 tickets in pairs of two for a race weekend at Homestead , FL
  • 40 prizes per day for 40 days with winners drawn from ALL entries (mail in and online registrations)
  • 40 weekly FANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION Backyard BBQ prize packages awarded every week for six weeks of the promotion
  • 1 instant winner per day selected from online registrations for the 40 days of the promotion
  • Daily and instant winners can win NAPA Filters 40 th Anniversary tumblers, caps, T-shirts and coolers. The Backyard Celebration BBQ prize package awarded to weekly winners includes NAPA Filters 40th Anniversary chef hat and apron, portable gas grill, 40th Anniversary branded BBQ utensils and $50 gift certificate from Omaha Steaks.

There are two ways to get into the drawings. Pick up entry blanks at participating NAPA Auto Parts stores and NAPA Car Care Centers , OR register online (limited to 30 daily online entries). When you stop by in person, you can also take advantage of special NAPA Filters rebates.

So why did I put it up here ? When my friend told me about it, I thought if someone gets little benefit out of it there is no harm in that. So click the banner on the right and head over.

Disclaimer: This is not a link-exchange program neither I am getting green-leaves for posting it [thought I wouldn’t have mind getting some, but that’s a different story]. It’s just for fun & some information.

The Mount-Everest Effect

Posted: June 21, 2006 by Neeraj in Formula-One, Off-Topic

Just casually going through the stats of the blog, I noticed a sudden increase in the number of people that visited the blog:

On looking more in-depth, it turned out to be the day Michael Schumacher’s car “stalled” at Rascasse in Monte Carlo. And given the increase in the traffic, I aptly named it “The Mount-Everest Effect” [how creative !].

So did you also got “The Mount-Everest Effect” at your F1 Blog ?
