"Chug points"

Uncle Bill

Recommended Posts

Did you know that drivers get paid every time they take a drink off a bottle during an interview ?? They are called "Chug points".
Jimmy Johnson (a Pepsi driver) was fined $10,000 for blocking the Power aid bottle (a coke product) that sat ontop his car in winners circle at Pocono.
Pretty sad !!

Those guys get paid enough money it probably does not hurt them. Jimmy either knew he was drinking the wrong bottle and forgot or he didn't care. But it is amazing how much those sponsors pay these guys just to "chug".

Good Fishin'...

Actually the money of winner of the so-called "chug points" go towards a charity of the driver who gets the most points. Pretty ingenious on part of the soft drink companies.

I always laughed when Gordon practically threw his Pepsi down his driving suit to get it on camera after an interview years ago. Now everyone is doing it. Glad to see the sponsors are putting it towards charity instead of a shameless plug by the drivers.
