Bridgestone Commercial Solutions announced this week it will be giving away a 2013 Peterbilt to a Class 8 CDL holder in its Drive a Firestone Sweepstakes, which is part of the company's Firestone Drivers America tour that kicks off this month.

Ward and Gill’s entries were randomly selected from the Drive a Firestone Sweepstakes, part of the year-long Those With Drive, Drive a Firestone campaign designed to market new Firestone eco-Products.

Ward and Gill will travel to Southern California to attend the game in the Rose Bowl. Ward is attending the game with his 75-year old dad. “Going to a game is something we’ve always talked about doing and never have been able to do, until now,” he says.

“It’s the first time I’m attending a game like this and the first time I’ve ever won a contest,” Gill said. 

There still also are more sweepstakes prizes to be won. In March 2014, five randomly selected finalists will be sent to the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., where each will be presented with a key, one of which will start the grand prize – a one-of-a-kind Firestone Edition Class 8 truck. The five finalists also will win an all-expenses paid trip for two to the 2014 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. 

The “Drive a Firestone” sweepstakes is open to drivers who hold a valid U.S. commercial driver’s license (Class 8) and who own or operate a Class 7 or 8 vehicle. To enter, and for complete sweepstakes rules, visit www.firestonetrucktires.com. The sweepstakes entry period closes Dec. 31, 2013.
