Checkered Flag Drops on 5-Hour Energy Racing's 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Season

Monday, November 30, 2009
There has been a common theme to the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series for the 5-Hour Energy Racing team, consistency. Drivers Steve Wallace and Brendan Gaughan have climbed the ranks with persistence and steadiness when traffic was heavy and their cars were struggling. Their alert, dependable and sometimes edgy driving took both to celebrated top-10 championship series finishes, which was unmatched by another other series team, and broke personal records.

The 2009 Nationwide Series concluded at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 21. After 300 miles Wallace chalked up another great driving feat as he took his No. 66 Chevrolet Impala SS from a hopeful 15th position to a striking 8th-place finish, a performance unrivalled by any non-Cup Series driver. It was Wallace's second-straight top-10 finish, adding a fifth top-20 finish in his 5-Hour Energy machine for the 2009 season, and secured the 7th-place ranking in the final Nationwide standings.

Wallace's teammate and pilot of the No. 62 5-Hour Energy Extra Strength Chevrolet, Gaughan, kept with the theme of the season and finished just one position back from where he began the race. Gaughan's consistency clutched the 9th-place position in the final season rankings and wrapped up the 2009 season with 12 top-20 finishes.

5-Hour Energy Racing has been more than impressed with the young and talented wheelmen and the affiliation with Rusty Wallace Racing. The two teams announced back in August plans to continue their partnership into the 2010 season, with 5-Hour Energy as the primary sponsor of Wallace's no. 66 car. RWR makes the change from Chevrolet to the new Toyota Camry, plenty of 5-Hour Energy shots will be right there, keeping the pit crew energized, the drivers focused, and the anticipation high for the green flag drop at Daytona International Speedway and opening of the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series Championship.


Leno and Fallon Boost Evening Entertainment with 5-Hour Energy

Monday, November 23, 2009
At 5-Hour Energy we love spoofs. Like the idea from the movie There's Something About Mary that we used for the Blog post "Blowing 5-Hour Energy Right Out of the Water". To add to the list, Jay Leno also did a spoof of a 5-Hour Energy commercial on his new primetime gig The Jay Leno Show. Leno's 5-Day Energy shot has enough energy to "get you through the week….and do everything you dreamed of". See the 5-Day Energy commercial here at 7 min. 40 sec.

5-Hour Energy recently appeared again on late night TV when former Saturday Night Live cast member Jimmy Fallon interviewed SNL pal Jason Sudeikis on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. After talking about working with singer Taylor Swift and the skits he pitched her, Sudeikis told Fallon how he took care of his low on energy before the show with a 5-Hour Energy Shot.

Sudeikis even brought one for Fallon to try and gave the crowd a laugh when answering Fallon's question about taste. We think he needs to try the new Grape or Pomegranate flavors that fans are raving about.

You can watch the full interview with Sudeikis on below or just fast forward to the last minute (about 2 minutes in) and watch Sudeikis gave Fallon a the gift of 5-Hour Energy.

And Then There Were Two

Friday, November 13, 2009
With just two races left in the demanding and exciting 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series season, it's time to take a quick look at where the two drivers of 5-Hour Energy Racing are ranked and how the final push for points heading into Phoenix and Homestead will be supercharged with a few extra 5-Hour Energy shots.

All season Steve Wallace has combated shredded tires, crumpled sheet metal, mechanical failures and spinouts to prove that he is among the finest in the Nationwide Series. Piloting the No. 66 5-Hour Energy Chevrolet has had its ups and downs for Wallace, but his consistent driving, zeroed-in focus and physical endurance has earned him a solid seventh place in overall championship points before heading to Phoenix International Speedway for the Able Body Labor 200.

Making a stunning Rookie debut at Bristol Motor Speedway with a pole position qualifier, Brendan Gaughan has impressed the 5-Hour Energy Racing team in the No. 62 Extra Strength 5-Hour Energy Chevrolet throughout the season, continuing to push hard from ninth place in championship points. Gaughan has also been in close competition for the Rookie of the Year title with Justin Allgaier, Michael Annett, and Michael McDowell. Gaughan's noteworthy performances in this 2009 season include three Top-5 finishes and 8 Top-10 finishes, which he'll hope to add to first at Phoenix and then at the season-concluding Ford 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 21.

The team at 5-Hour Energy continually recognizes the sacrifices made by our forces to maintain a nation of solidarity and freedom. We just wanted to take this special day to say it again.

Thank you veterans

5-Hour Energy Introduces Newest Featured Fan and Winner of a One-Year Supply of Energy Shots

Friday, November 6, 2009

The 5-Hour Energy team is proud to introduce Kathryn Springer of Paris, Texas as the brand’s newest Featured Fan and winner of the team’s biggest prize to-date, a one-year supply of her favorite 5-Hour Energy shots. Kathryn is a mother of one, working hard to keep her family afloat in today’s downed economics, but also, with a little help from 5-Hour Energy, she able to manage in a 20-hour college load and enjoy time with her family.

As with previous Featured Fan winners, we had the 5-Hour Energy Guy interview the recent addition to the 5-Hour Energy VIP list.

Energy Guy:
Kathryn, when did you start taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

I had my first shot in 2008. I started to notice that when the end of the week crept up and it was about midway through my day, I ran out of energy to accomplish the things I needed to do.

Energy Guy:
What made you start taking 5-Hour Energy shots?

I began college and needed a little extra lift for early morning classes, which most college students can agree to. But I’m also working full time and have a family to spend time with.

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

Just about everything on the market!

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

It was fast acting, and I was able to focus more on the tasks at hand.

Energy Guy:
Between your personal schedule, your family schedules and everything else that comes with being a working adult, when during the day do you take 5-Hour Energy shots?

Whenever I need a boost, which is usually before those a.m. classes. After my first shot of 5-Hour Energy I am more alert and focused without the dreaded "crash" I have had from some of the other energy drinks on the market.

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

Since using 5-Hour Energy I have that boost to do the daily chores and beyond. What’s even better is that my grades have improved from a B to an A because I’m able to better concentrate when I study. I recommend 5-Hour Energy to my friends when I realize they are running out of steam too. They love not having the crash either. This is, without a doubt, the best product on the market
