The story stars back in May when Cartown (a facebook game) announced a contest in which the first person to complete the challenge would win a prize.

Cartowns original post to the contest:

A couple of days later they posted an update:

It was later said by Tagliani on Twitter that the gloves Cartown would be giving away were in fact going to be the driving gloves that he would be wearing while he races in the 500.

As soon as I heard they were giving away his Indy 500 races gloves I knew I had to win the contest...So I did.

About 3 weeks after the 500 I got a message from Alex Tagliani on twitter saying that the driving gloves had been mailed out and I should recieve them soon :party0048:

Here are the only racing Mem I own.

What makes it even cooler is that I had tickets to the 500 (bought them months before the contest even happened) and when the people at Cartown found out I was going to the 500 they arranged for me to meat Tagliani before the race (my sister has those pics on here camera)

Sorry for the long read but I thought since this is the race forum someone might enjoy this.

I've been a giant racing fan my whole life (mainly Nascar) but never got into collecting cards or mem so this is the only piece I have.
