That lofty honor went to Courtney Force, of Yorba Linda, Calif. Force received thousands of comments throughout the summer-long program on her MySpace site, her YouTube Channel and on her Twitter account as she drove and then talked about the Fiesta. For the 21 year-old Cal State Fullerton student who is working towards a degree in Communication with an eye on a career as a professional driver winning the award was a thrill.
“This is a great honor. There were so many awesome agents and their videos really made me try harder with every new mission. I have to thank Ford and the Fiesta marketing team for giving me this chance. As I am studying for my degree at Cal State, the Fiesta Movement gave me the chance to take things from the classroom right to the real world and see results," said Force.
“I also want to thank the thousands of people that voted for me to be the top agent as well as all the thousands and thousands of fans that posted comments to my videos or Tweets over the summer. This is just awesome. I loved driving my Fiesta and got so many great comments from just people on the street."
For the past two seasons Force has competed in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series behind the wheel of her Sanyo Supercharged HD A Fuel Dragster. In July Force won her first NHRA national event in Seattle. (press release)
