Rev Up for The Indy 500 and The Coca Cola 600!

This weekend, the roar of engines will be blaring across the nation as two of the biggest races peel from the starting line.  We at COMC are taking a moment to highlight some of our cards commemorating races past.  Check these beauties out:

In celebration of the upcoming laps, we are hosting a little contest!  Just go onto our site, find an item that is Indy 500 or Cocacola 600 related, and tell us in the comments the item number and why that card gets your blood pumping faster than a 600 hundred horse power engine!

Then, this coming Friday, we will pick the user who has best captured the feeling and award them $10 of store credit.  It’s fun and easy, and we look forward to hearing great stories about the cards on our site.

Oh, and because we want to know: Who’s going to be watching the races this weekend and who do you think is going to win?!

  3. I was a big NASCAR fan growing up, and I always enjoyed and, when I have time, still enjoy catching some of the races. Looking at some of the cards on COMC reminded me of when I was seriously into NASCAR and events like the Coca-Cola 600. There is just a certain thrill to watching these machines go hundreds of miles for hours to see who has the best combination of strategy and lucky breaks that is hard to match in such a dramatic fashion in other sports. My favorite driver has always been Jeff Gordon, so this card (Item # 4889801) from around the time of my peak interest in NASCAR reminded me of some of these memories of watching NASCAR and the feelings associated with it.
