NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 20, 2006) — Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire L.L.C. (BFNT) is launching a promotion this spring in support of its Firestone Firehawk tire line.
Consumers can register to win the grand prize—a trip for 10 to attend the 2007 Indianapolis 500-Mile Race—by visiting any participating Firestone retailer from May 1–June 25. Winners will be randomly selected from entries submitted at participating retailers on July 15 at the Firestone Indy 200 in Nashville.
Additional sweepstakes prizes include a first-place prize of a collectible Tag Heuer Indy 500 watch; five second-place prizes of a set of four Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires; and 10 third-place prizes of a framed, limited edition Indy 500 90th Anniversary commemorative art piece.
“The Firestone Indy 500 Pagoda Party Sweepstakes is a chance of a lifetime to attend 'The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,'” said Phil Pacsi, executive director of Consumer Tire Marketing for BFNT. “Firestone has won more races at Indy than all of the other tire manufacturers combined. This year marks the 90th running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, so we wanted to do something special to help commemorate this milestone, as well as salute the brand's rich history, which spans more than a century. This sweepstakes highlights the brand's strong connection to the Brickyard, as well as its role in the history of the famed track.”
