Bridgestone Commercial Solutions Announces Grand Prize Winner Of The Drive A Firestone Sweepstakes For CDL Holders

Driver from Colorado wins one-of-a-kind Firestone Edition Class 8 tractor

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Bridgestone Commercial Solutions today announced that Brad Peterson of Wellington, Colo. is the grand prize winner of the Drive a Firestone Sweepstakes and takes home a 2013 Firestone Edition Class 8 tractor. The tractor features special highly customized interior and exterior appointments to turn it into a Firestone. Peterson won the tractor at the 2014 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky. and his win concludes the Firestone Drives America Tour which launched last July. In addition to the tractor, Peterson won an all-expenses paid trip for two to the 2014 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race, assistance to help defray tax costs and up to a five year supply of Firestone tires.

At the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., Bridgestone Commercial Solutions announced the winner of the Drive a Firestone Sweepstakes. Brad Peterson of Wellington, Colo. held the key that started the engine of this one-of-a-kind Firestone Edition Class 8 truck and took it home.

The Firestone Drives America promotional tour travelled across the country, celebrating the iconic 'F-shield' brand and introducing new Firestone commercial truck tires to fleets and drivers. Several prizes were awarded throughout the sweepstakes, including all-expenses paid trips for two to a baseball championship series game, all-expenses paid trips for two to attend the college football national championship game, and $500 gift cards and Firestone-branded apparel.

"Firestone is an iconic American brand with a rich history in trucking. This tour and sweepstakes allowed us to showcase our latest Firestone-brand tires – the FS591 steer, FD691 drive, and FT491 all-position radials – in a fun, unique manner across the country," said Matthew Stevenson, Vice President of Marketing, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions. "Congratulations to our sweepstakes prize winners and a big thank you to all who participated. Although the tour and sweepstakes have ended, watch for more promotions around our Firestone brand."

Peterson held the key that started the engine of the special Firestone Edition Class 8 tractor. The finalists, selected at random, each received an all-expenses paid trip for two to the 2014 Indianapolis 500 Mile Race and the Mid-America Trucking Show where the tractor was on display.

"This is the first contest I've ever won in my life," said Brad Peterson. "I gave a big hug and kiss to my wife. I knew I had a 20 percent chance of winning. I'm retiring my current truck and using the new truck to haul equipment."

The Drive a Firestone sweepstakes was open to drivers with a valid U.S. commercial driver's license (Class 8) and who own or operate a Class 7 or 8 vehicle. The Firestone Drives America Tour hit the road July 16, stopping at select Minor League Baseball and NCAA College Football games along the way.
