Race-Used Spark Plugs Inserted in 2009 Wheels Main Event

Customers who purchase hobby boxes of 2009 Wheels Main Event may be shocked to find a very unique collectible hidden inside their 20-pack hobby box. Select hobby boxes of Wheels Main Event will include an authentic race-used Bosch spark plug, along with a certificate of authenticity identifying which driver and race the spark plug came from. Eight Bosch spark plugs from Jeff Gordon’s victory at Texas Motor Speedway in April can be found in the program in addition to race-used Bosch spark plugs from Dale Jr., Mark Martin, Jimmie Johnson and more. Each Bosch spark plug will have a number (1-8) that is hand-written by the team to indicate which cylinder the spark plug came from.

These unique collectibles are found exclusively in hobby boxes of 2009 Wheel Main Event, which will be available in October 2009. Collectors will hit the jackpot as each hobby box will contain one NASCAR driver autograph plus two memorabilia cards. Boxes may also include a bonus professional poker player autograph. In addition to the classic double and triple driver-worn pit cap cards, the memorabilia line-up includes the first-ever race-used pit wall banner, wheel cover, and pit stacker cards, as well as oversized patch-edition pit cap cards. Also making a comeback are authentic Dale Jr. race-used lug nut cards featuring slices of lug nuts from Dale Jr.’s #88 Amp/National Guard Chevrolet.

I can't believe this is serious. A spark plug? I guess it's no different than a dinosaur bone or piece of arm pit hair.

The professional poker player card should really get the gear head's going....

I say FAIL! But what do I know.

I was at a NASCAR race and Greg Biffle's crew put out a box of race used lug nuts for anybody to take. I grabbed a handful. Thought that was pretty cool.

I guess the packsearchers will be sneaking their metal detectors into the hobby shops.
