NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Bridgestone Americas Inc. is offering users of its Firestone OTR tire lines a chance to win an expenses-paid trip to the 2019 Indianapolis 500 in a sweepstakes running through Sept. 17.
The contest links widely diverse ends of the Firestone brand spectrum — racing and earthmoving/mining.
"Our off-the-road customers work in a variety of tough and challenging conditions, and Firestone VersaBuilt tires provide them the versatility and durability to get the job done," Rob Seibert, director of marketing, off-the-road, said.
"Just like our off-the-road customers, Indy car drivers depend on the time-tested performance and durability of Firestone tires. This sweepstakes is a unique opportunity to highlight these key Firestone brand attributes while rewarding our hard-working, off-the-road customers with a once-in-a-lifetime experience."
The grand prize winner of the "Firestone Off-the-Road to the 2019 Indy 500 Sweepstakes" will receive round-trip airfare for two people, hotel accommodations for three nights and two tickets to the 103rd Indy 500, scheduled for May 26, 2019.
The grand prize package also will include two tickets to the Firestone Legends Day concert, race weekend experiences exclusive to Firestone guests and access to the Firestone hospitality area at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
All entries to the sweepstakes must be received by Sept. 17 by 11:59 p.m. Central Daylight Time. Winners will be selected randomly on or about Oct. 10, and will be notified via email and/or U.S. mail or overnight delivery service.
This is the second year Bridgestone has run this sweepstakes, following the launch in early 2017 of the Firestone VersaBuilt line of radial loader, grader and earthmover tires.
Firestone has been the designated race tire for IndyCar racing since 2002.
