DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (June 23, 2015) — Nexen Tire America Inc. has named the grand prize winner of its Next Level Associate Dealer Program.
Art Eliason, owner of AE Autocare in Livonia, Mich., is the first quarter sweepstakes winner.
During a June 6 event in Las Vegas, Nexen presented Mr. Eliason and his wife Laura with a check for $75,000. As the quarterly winner, Mr. Eliason also will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas and the opportunity to play Nexen's Match & Win Game for a chance to win $1 million.
“The event was a total success,” said Kyle Roberts, director of marketing for Nexen Tire. “Art turned 120 Nexen tire purchases into an unforgettable trip and a big payday. We are very excited for him.”
Nexen's Associate Dealer program pays out cash bonuses every quarter for purchases of 100 units or more. In addition, each tire purchased counts as an entry into the quarterly sweepstakes, where random dealers are awarded $250 and $500 cash cards, a new truck along with the chance to win $1 million.
In all, Nexen said it paid out nearly $2 million in cash and prizes in the year's first quarter. For more information on Nexen's Next Level Associate Dealer Program, click here.
