Fan Wins Ford Focus during NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway
When Jennifer Goodnight attended the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway in the spring of 2011, the last thing she thought would happen was to get a call at the end of the racing season saying she had won a new Ford Focus. That scenario did in fact take place recently, with Goodnight being notified that her name was drawn from more than 115,000 entries in this year's Win With Force Sweepstakes sponsored by BrandSource, Castrol and Ford Motor Co.
Goodnight admitted that her limited travel schedule doesn't allow her to get to as many NHRA races as she would like, but when she attended the Four-Wide Nationals in April she got to see her favorite team, John Force Racing, on the track and visit the Win With Force midway display. "I never thought I would win anything. It just goes to show you that dreams do come true," she said.
Goodnight, a resident of Dover, Del., picked up the new car last weekend at Winner Ford in her hometown. "What a wonderful feeling it was to pick out the new car," she said. "It was just surreal. This has been such a Godsend. The improved gas mileage of the Ford Focus alone will mean so much to our family."
The 2011 sweepstakes marks the third time that BrandSource and Ford Motor Co. have teamed up to give away a car in the past several racing seasons, and the addition of Castrol to the promotion helped increase the number of fans eligible to win. The Win With Force Sweepstakes promotion, featuring a 2013 Ford Fiesta as the grand prize will kick-off at the upcoming season opener in Pomona, CA during the NHRA Winternationals.
Representatives from BrandSource, Castrol, Ford, and John Force Racing will make a formal presentation to Jennifer Goodnight as this past season's grand prize winner during the 2012 NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Charlotte, which will mark the one-year anniversary of her winning sweepstakes entry.
BrandSource CEO, Bob Lawrence, created the Win With Force promotion in 2006, and has watched it grow every season.
"Congratulations to Jennifer Goodnight on winning this year's grand prize," said Lawrence. "Every time BrandSource and all of our dealers have a chance to participate in a promotion with a Ford vehicle as the grand prize it becomes a very popular sweepstakes. We look forward to recognizing Jennifer as our guest at the 2012 NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Charlotte and encourage race fans to get signed up for the 2012 season grand prize."
