As the official fuel of NASCAR, Sunoco's Free Fuel 5000 promotion
offered millions of Sunoco customers a decal identical to the ones on
every racecar in NASCAR's three top series. Throughout the promotion,
Sunoco spotters looked for the decal on cars at more than 4,300 stations
in 21 states. Over the course of the three month event, 9,445 Sunoco
customers instantly collected a $10 gift card and earned a chance to win
the grand prize of 5,000 gallons of Sunoco fuel.
On July 25, at a local Sunoco fueling station on Pennsylvania Avenue in
Bristol, Tenn., Mr. Brooks was spotted with a Sunoco decal on his
burgundy colored van as he stopped for fuel with his son, earning him a
Sunoco gift card and ultimately the grand prize.
“Winning the instant $10 Sunoco gas card was great,” said Free Fuel 5000
contest winner Roger Brooks. “You never think you can win a contest like
this, but I did. I live in Bristol and fill up and drive by it all of
the time. I’m sure glad that I needed gas that day.”
From June through August, drivers sporting the Sunoco decal on their car
had a chance to get spotted. Those spotted drivers won a Sunoco gas card
instantly, and were entered into the grand prize drawing for 5,000
gallons of Sunoco gasoline. In a car that gets at least 20 miles per
gallon, that’s enough gasoline to travel 100,000 miles.
“Every year we continue to see the excitement grow, not only from our
customers, but also from our retailers," said Drew Kabakoff, Sunoco
brand manager. “This sweepstakes engages customers, supports our retail
partners, and promotes our relationship with NASCAR at the street level.”
