The person with the slowest overall time (without stopping) will be awarded tickets to the Pennzoil 400 Weekend events, which include Lennox Pole Day, Miami 300 Busch Series finale and the Pennzoil 400 NASCAR Winston Cup Series event.

The winner of the slowest race also receives pre-race track passes for Sunday's Pennzoil 400 and will get to be a special guest in Victory Lane on Saturday to watch the winner of the Miami 300 crowned.

The best-decorated car will also win tickets to the weekend's events and pre-race track passes for Sunday's Pennzoil 400. All participants in the slowest race will be able to register to win two pairs of weekend tickets to the Miami 300 and the Pennzoil 400.
