Let's Go Racing Sock Monkeys! - Part 1

Those of you that are Nascar fans have probably heard about Toyota's contest to design your own race car. I decided to enter my own creation, the Big Monkey car, even though the deadline for the big prize has passed. This weekend one of the lucky finalists will see their design come to life as the official pace car. Too bad I didn't find out about this contest earlier. How cool would it be to see the Big Monkey car racing around the track?

You can still vote for the Big Monkey car if you like it by visiting the Toyota Sponsafier site. Meanwhile I thought I would share the different views of my design.

Let's go racing sock monkeys! I wonder how Toby Lightman would feel about changing the lyrics of her Nascar theme song, "Let's Go Racing Boys."

That's a pretty good looking hood if I say so myself!

I'm # 55, the Double Cinco.

The different sides of Big Monkey...

I couldn't do it without Team Sock Monkey!

Very cool, BM! You have my vote.

Do they let the winner drive the car, too? Now, THAT would be awesome.

By the time I discovered this contest, the 10 finalists were already chosen. I think they just continued to advertise it so people could have fun with it. I don't know who drove the winning car, but I would have requested Gunther (my 4 foot chauffeur) if my design had won.
