Steven Colbert Shares 5-Hour Energy for Rosh Hashanah

Wednesday, September 30, 2009
In celebration of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, comedian and satirical daily news anchor Steven Colbert wanted to give the traditional gift of apples and honey to his Jewish viewers. Unfortunately the corner deli he stopped at before filming didn’t have what he was looking for. So without breaking customary practices, he found an alternative. Enjoy!

5-Hour Energy Racing: Wallace Retakes Top-Five

Tuesday, September 29, 2009
A 12th place finish at the Dover 200 at Dover International Speedway, pushed 5-Hour Energy Racing driver Steve Wallace back into the Top-5 for the NASCAR Nationwide Series points. Wallace showed his true prominence on the “Monster Mile” after suffering a late-race incident that left the No. 66 5-Hour Energy Chevrolet wounded and nearly cost him the race.

The Rusty Wallace Racing driver took over the 5th place ranking from Penske Racing’s Justin Allgaier, whom Wallace has been battling with for weeks, after Allgaier’s No. 12 ran out of fuel during a mid-race pit stop sequence. It was Wallace’s consistent runs noted throughout the season in Blog posts after Richmond, Daytona, and Bristol that have kept him in the Top-5 and in the run for a championship season.

Wallace’s teammate Brendan Gaughan is still seeing that streak of bad luck that has kept him continuing a grand rookie season in the No. 62 5-Hour Energy Extra Strength Chevrolet. Gaughan had to start at the back of the pack after engine troubles during practice. But Gaughan would fight through the pack and misfortune of a blown tire to finish in 19th place. Gaughan lost only one position in the season standings and is currently in ninth.

The team is now headed to Kansas for a 300-mile run at Kansas Speedway. Both 5-Hour Energy drivers are ready to maintain and gain on their Top-10 and Top-5 standings when the green falls at 3:30 ET on Saturday Oct. 3.

5-Hour Energy Featured Fan: Staff Sergeant Case

Monday, September 28, 2009

Staff Sergeant Travis Case impressed the Featured Fan contest judges with his enthusiasm for his duties as a soldier in the United States Army, as a husband and as a father. Since 2007 5-Hour Energy has been keeping our nation’s soldiers alert and focused on the frontlines by donating shots for care packages from Operation Gratitude.

The 5-Hour Energy Guy thought it was only appropriate to follow Patriot Day with a Featured Fan whose sacrifice has benefited us all.


Energy Guy:
Staff Sgt. Case, you continually say that “5-Hour Energy is the only shot that will get you to the mountaintop every time.” How long have you been slamming and sipping 5-Hour Energy shots to scale the mountains and challenges in your life?

Staff Sgt. Case:

I first tried 5-Hour Energy about a year and a half ago and immediately trusted the product and its results.

Energy Guy:
So before a year and a half ago did you use any other energy drinks or products?

Staff Sgt. Case:
I tried and still try all energy shots if I feel they are worthy to measuring up against 5-Hour Energy. I feel they work a little, but fall short of the long-range benefits of the 5-Hour Energy shots.

Energy Guy:
What did you first like about 5-Hour Energy shots?

Staff Sgt. Case:
5-Hour just made me feel as if I could accomplish anything. Whenever I needed to bring my A-game, I also brought my 5-Hour.

Energy Guy:
Of all the 5-Hour Energy shots, which is your favorite?

Staff Sgt. Case:

I buy a 24-pack of Extra Strength once per month. I like orange, lemon-lime, and Extra Strength berry equally well. I see orange selling really well at retail locations such as Sheetz.

Energy Guy:

In what ways have 5-Hour Energy shots improved your life?

Staff Sgt. Case:

5-Hour Energy plays a huge role in my life and helps me stay on the cutting edge at all times. It gives me an enormous edge when I conduct my duties as a soldier, husband and father. My wife knows that it is my favorite amenity and she always surprises me with two-pack. I would love to by stock in it!

Energy Guy:
The team at 5-Hour Energy takes pride in supporting you and your fellow soldiers. We hope that everyone can reach the mountain tops in their lives with a little help of 5-Hour Energy!

5-Hour Energy's Hardest Working Fire Station Contest

Friday, September 25, 2009



5-Hour Energy is paying tribute to the fire fighters of America and the sacrifice they make each and every day with its "Hardest Working Fire Station in America" contest, which ends on September 30.

You have less than a week to enter, and we know you can respond to this call quickly. To earn your fire station the title of “Hardest Working” we need you to showcase how your crew is one of the best in America in just 250 words or less.

Much like the Firefighter Combat Challenge, which test the physical skills of our nation’s heroes in red trucks, this 5-Hour Energy contest will award the toughest, most-rugged, fire station with 555 bottles of 5-Hour Energy shots to keep them alert and focused during the exhausting calls and long nights.

The winner will be chosen by the 5-Hour Energy team, so in a PG-13 or better manner, tell us about the long nights on call and the exhaustion faced when the alarm rings. More importantly, you also need to present something that sets you apart from all the other municipal and volunteer ladders that are entering.

Again, the contest will be extinguished on September 30, so slide on down to the 5-Hour Energy Fire Station contest page for more details and to submit your entry ASAP. After your entry is in try your skills at all the other 5-Hour contests like the 5-Hour Energy 100m Dash and Scavenger Hunt to win more 5-Hour Energy shots.

5-Hour Energy Racing Ready for Top-Five Charge After Richmond

Monday, September 14, 2009
Consistency has been key for the 5-Hour Energy Racing team in the 2009 season, and much like the tortoise, a consistent drive from start to finish will prove better than being great one week and sloppy the next. For Steve Wallace and his No. 66 5-Hour Energy Chevrolet, a top-10 finish at Richmond International Raceway has pushed him into contention for a NASCAR Nationwide Series top-five championship finish.

Wallace started at the Virginia 529 College Savings 250 in 29th place, but would dash forward and make 39 green flag passes before the checkered fell. On final lap, Wallace charged past the Red Bull car and crossed the line in ninth place, which chalked up a third-straight 11th or better finish for 5-Hour Energy racing and pushed Wallace into sixth place for overall series points.

Sitting just two championship positions behind the No. 66 5-Hour Energy car is Wallace’s teammate Brendan Gaughan, pilot of the No. 62 5-Hour Energy Extra Strength Chevrolet. Gaughan has impressed his Rusty Wallace Racing team as the seasons second highest ranking rookie, and has plenty of opportunities to push forward with 5-Hour consistency to a memorable first year.

5-Hour Energy Featured Fan: Danelle Mackey

Thursday, September 3, 2009
With the current 5-Hour Energy campaign asking men to “Release Their Inner Superman” and prove that they can be a 5-Hour Man, our 5-Hour Energy Guy wanted to continue inviting in those female fans who impressed him the most and who proved that the 2 oz. energy shots are in the purses and handbags of women across America.

Last week the Energy Guy met Crystal Romain, a.k.a. Ivonna B. Vicious, who was your typical girl by day and bow-dropping, hair-pulling villain on skates by night – a transformation made possible with 5-Hour Energy shots. But this week he has a woman who uses 5-Hour Energy to balance the hectic schedules of school, work and motherhood.




Energy Guy:
Danelle, what made you start taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

Danelle:
My husband started drinking them first and said I should try it when we moved our family from Phoenix, AZ to Little Rock, AR. It was a 20-hour drive, I've been drinking them ever since.

Energy Guy:
We have had fans writing in that they have been drinking 5-Hour Energy since they hit the shelves in 2004. About how long have you been getting that boost from 5-Hour Energy shots?

Danelle:
Not nearly that long, but I've been drinking 5-hour Energy for almost a year.

Energy Guy:
Before you became a fan of 5-Hour Energy, were there any other energy drinks or products that you used?

Danelle:
I've tried Red Bull....and did not like it!

Energy Guy:
What did you first like about 5-Hour Energy shots?

Danelle:
I like the actual boost of energy I got.

Energy Guy:
You’re a mom, who went back to school to become a medical assistant and is working full time. Between your schedule, your kids’ schedules and everything else that comes with being working adult, when during the day do you take 5-Hour Energy shots to give you that boost?

Danelle:
When I was in school it was at lunch time, to keep me moving through second half of the day, but now it’s every morning when everyone else is sipping coffee.

Energy Guy:
In what ways have 5-Hour Energy shots improved your life?

Danelle:
Since I get that boost of energy, I actually have the energy to get up and out with my kids, with more energy I'm also in a better mood. Overall, it helps me be a better mom!

Energy Guy:
Well we couldn’t be happier than to hear that 5-Hour Energy has helped this mom reach her goals and continue to be a great mother.
