Brand Awards Lucky Fans VIP Experiences through Social Media Contest

PLANO, Texas, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cracker Jack'D brand, on a mission to help keep on-the-go consumers satisfied throughout their busy days, has signed on as a premier sponsor of the Nitro Circus Live action sports U.S. tour. Known for showcasing some of the world's best action sports athletes performing adrenaline-pumping motocross, BMX and skateboarding stunts, Nitro Circus Live makes its U.S. debut in 2014 and Cracker Jack'D, one of the many brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, is offering fans the chance to win VIP experiences at the events exclusively through the Cracker Jack'D Facebook page (www.facebook.com/crackerjackdsnacks).  

Each of the Nitro Circus Live events showcases 40 of the world's best action sports athletes performing some of the most difficult stunts ever witnessed, including the famous 50-foot-high Gigant-A-Ramp and the spectacularly choreographed 'Nitro Bomb' trick, which includes 24 riders back-flipping in the air simultaneously. The month-long Nitro Circus Live U.S. tour began on Jan. 5 in Boston, Mass. with more than 13,000 in attendance, following up with a sold-out show at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York City on Jan. 8. The tour will wrap up in Anaheim, Calif. on Jan. 26.

Much like Nitro Circus Live, Cracker Jack'D snacks offer fans an intense experience they won't soon forget. Exclusively through the Cracker Jack'D Facebook page, fans can win a VIP experience at one of the Nitro Circus Live events, which includes premier seating, branded gear and of course, plenty of Cracker Jack'D "Snacks with Impact." Fans simply need to visit the brand's Facebook page for clues related to each of the Nitro Circus Live tour locations, which will lead them to a chance for the free tickets, while supplies last.  For official rules, fans can visit http://www.crackerjackd.com/.

"Nitro Circus Live is a high energy show and Cracker Jack'D snacks help keep its athletes going during their action-packed days," said David Skena, vice president of marketing, Frito-Lay.  "Nitro Circus Live fans have pretty busy days as well and our Cracker Jack'D snacks are a great fit for their on-the-go lifestyle with a variety of delicious flavors and textures to choose from."

Originally filmed in founder Travis Pastrana's backyard, Nitro Circus grew into a successful MTV television show with more than 46 million U.S. viewers and broadcast in 60 countries worldwide. The Nitro Circus Live show was the natural evolution, offering adrenaline-seeking enthusiasts the chance to see the amazing stunts live in Europe, Australia, Asia and New Zealand. Now fans can experience the exciting spectacle in 12 cities across the United States throughout January.

"We are beyond excited to have Cracker Jack'D join us as our official sponsor on our maiden tour here in the U.S. this year," said Michael Porra, CEO, Nitro Circus.
