LOUISVILLE, Ky. (March 31, 2015) — An independent trucker's wing-eating prowess won the Pennsylvania resident a set of 10 Dayton-brand commercial truck tires — valued at $3,000 — from Bridgestone Commercial Solutions (BCS) at the recent Mid-America Truck Show (MATS) in Louisville.
Hungry truck driver Roger Errett of Mount Pleasant, Pa., downed close to three pounds of bone-in, buffalo chicken wings in 10 minutes at the contest, held at Bridgestone Commercial's booth at MATS.
The contest was hosted by BCS, a unit of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, to kick off its Dayton-brand “Tires for Truckers” campaign and help introduce eight Dayton tire patterns.
“Congratulations to Roger for being our grand prize winner and special thanks to all of the contestants for their participation,” said Matt Loos, director of truck and bus marketing for BCS. “Bridgestone knows how hard truckers work, and we salute all of the drivers….
“Today's truckers are focused on getting the job done with as little down time as possible. The new Dayton line keeps truckers moving. We launched eight new patterns, doubling the product coverage of the former lineup in January. Dayton tires are quality-proven, affordable and designed to support small fleets and owner-operators so they can keep focused on the bottom line.”
