An All-New 2010 Ford Fusion is "We Race. You Win." Grand Prize One lucky fan will win a 2010 Ford Fusion in Ford Racing’s “We Race. You Win.” national sweepstakes, announced here today as part of the Ford NASCAR Media Day.
Each time a Ford Racing driver wins a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points race in 2009, one lucky fan and a guest will win an all-expenses paid trip to Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. During the race weekend, one of those fans then will be selected as the grand prizewinner of a 2010 Ford Fusion.
Race fans can register by logging on to www.weraceyouwin.com anytime from Jan. 22 to Nov. 15, 2009. Obviously, the sooner the fans register, the more opportunities they have to win.
“With our new NASCAR Fusion debuting on track this season, we wanted to do something special for race fans that will reward them every time one of our drivers wins,” said Greg Scott, Ford Fusion marketing manager. “The inspiration for Ford's NASCAR race car, the 2010 Fusion, is destined to be a hit in the marketplace, not just because of its bold design and the way it drives, but also because of its award-winning reliability and safety features.
“And we’re pleased that the 2010 Fusion Hybrid is a strong part of our lineup this year after making its debut as the first hybrid car in NASCAR history to lead the field to the green flag at Homestead last November,” added Scott. “The Fusion Hybrid is already the most fuel efficient mid-size sedan in America, with 41 mpg in the city and over 700 miles on one tank of gas.”
Ford drivers won 11 Sprint Cup races in 2008, including a series-best nine victories from Carl Edwards, who test drove both the 2010 Fusion Hybrid and 2010 Fusion Sport at Homestead last November.
“I’m looking forward to giving our race fans as many chances to win a new Fusion as I possibly can,” said Edwards, who is the driver of the No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion. “After my test drive, I personally know how good a car the new Fusion is and I can’t wait for it to get to the dealers so everybody can drive one. I hope the Ford drivers win a lot more than 11 races this year so we can help more fans win that trip to Ford Championship Weekend.”
As a bonus to kick off the new national promotion, after the first Ford victory of 2009 – as soon as the season-opening Daytona 500 - one lucky fan will have the winning driver come to his/her hometown for a 2010 Fusion test drive and dinner.
All of the Homestead winners will receive a trip for two to Ford Championship Weekend, including air, hotel, rental car, tickets to all three races, and a VIP visit with Ford drivers at the race track.
Fans who register will also have a chance to be eligible for one of 10 random monthly drawings of Ford Racing themed prizes, like autographed helmets, apparel packs and more.
