Bobbie Ward Jr. of Cleburne, Texas, and William Gill of Riverside, Calif., were awarded tickets to college football’s BCS Championship Game as part of Bridgestone Americas “Drive A Firestone Sweepstakes” for CDL holders.
The pair will travel to Pasadena, Calif., to attend the upcoming game between Florida State and Auburn.
“Going to a game is something we’ve always talked about doing and never have been able to do, until now,” said Ward, who plans on taking his father. “I come out to California a lot for work, but never have been able to stop. It will be a nice change of pace.”
“It’s the first time I’m attending a game like this and the first time I’ve ever won a contest,” said Gill. “I don’t even know what teams might be playing and it really doesn’t matter. I’ll be there enjoying the atmosphere, and that’s all good as long as I’m there.”
Ward and Gill’s entries were randomly selected from the “Drive a Firestone Sweepstakes.” The tiremaker launched the contest as part of a promotion of its eco-products. A tour kicked-off the campaign this year in July.
The sweepstakes is still running, with additional prizes to be won. For more information to enter, visit www.firestonetrucktires.com.
