CLEVELAND--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 15, 2004--
Race Teams Up With Event Sponsor for Unique Race-Weekend Promotion
One lucky race fan will get an opportunity to watch this summer's
U.S. Bank Presents the Champ Car Grand Prix of Cleveland with a few
extra bucks in their pocket.
The Grand Prix is teaming with its presenting sponsor to create a
unique fan promotion - the U.S. Bank Champ Car Cash Grab - which will
allow one fan to walk away from the 23rd annual Roar by the Shore
(July 1-3 at Burke Lakefront Airport) with up to $1,000 in cash.
Through the promotion, fans can log on to the official web site of
the Grand Prix, www.grandprixofcleveland.com, and register to become
one of the five finalists for the Cash Grab.
Entries in the contest may be submitted online through midnight on
Sunday, June 27. Five winners will be selected at random from the
entries received and all five lucky fans will be notified by June 29.
Those five winners will each receive two 3-day reserved grandstand
tickets along with pit and paddock passes to the U.S. Bank Presents
the Champ Car Grand Prix of Cleveland, as well as two U.S. Bank hats.
Prior to the start of the featured race of the weekend with the
turbo-charged Champ Cars on Saturday, July 3, the winners will all be
given keys to the specially-designed U.S. Bank Cash Machine. Only one
of the keys will open the doors to the machine, placed on the victory
podium adjacent to the race track. The lucky fan that holds the right
key will then get 60 seconds inside the machine to grab as much cash
as they can, with up to $1,000 floating around inside the machine.
The selected finalists must be present on race day to have a
chance at winning the grand prize and all contestants must be 18 years
old to enter.
Complete contest details are available online and fans can
register for the contest as many times as they like by completing the
registration form at www.grandprixofcleveland.com.
