My favorite driver, Martin Truex Jr., started a contest asking fans to send in a "good luck charm" to help him get to victory lane. After a lot of thought, I decided to make a replica of his car out of polymer clay. The finished product is barely bigger than a quarter. I mailed it today, and am patiently waiting to see if he picks it! Let me know what you think.

It's so cute, and being so small it wouldn't be hard for it to ride along with him Smiley Hope you win!

Previously posted this in the jewelry/clay category, but I guess it qualifies as a "play thing". My favorite NASCAR driver (Martin Truex Jr.) held a contest called "Get Lucky with Martin Truex Jr." The contest rules were to send in an item he could carry in is car to use as a "good luck charm". Last month, mine was chosen! Everyone was sending in personal "good luck charms", and my crafting gene told me to make mine! So, I hand molded a polymer clay replica of his car. He took my car to Michigan, and finished third =)

And here, is my replica sitting on top of his official race car!
