Mary Young has won Sunoco’s 2010 “Free Fuel 5000” promotion, which means she’ll be supplied with 5,000 gallons of high-quality Sunoco gasoline-enough fuel to keep her driving for eight years.
As the official fuel of NASCAR, Sunoco’s “Free Fuel 5000” promotion offered millions of Sunoco customers a decal identical to the ones on every racecar in NASCAR’s three top series. By getting spotted with a decal on their car, Sunoco customers were eligible to instantly win a $10 gift card and the grand prize of 5,000 gallons of Sunoco fuel.
On July 21, at a local Sunoco fueling station on State Route 7 North in Gallipolis, Ohio, Young was spotted with a Sunoco decal on her family-owned company van, earning her a Sunoco gift card and ultimately the grand prize.
Young was awarded the grand prize in a ceremony at the Sunoco fueling station where she was spotted. “I can’t believe that I won 5,000 gallons of gas! I’ve been coming here for years to support a local business, but I never thought something like this would happen to me and my family because of it! Thank you, Sunoco,” said Young.
“Sunoco congratulates Mrs. Young and thanks her for her many years of loyalty. We would also like to thank all the customers who participated in the Free Fuel 5000. Every year we continue to see the excitement grow, not only from our customers, but also from our retailers,” said Drew Kabakoff, Sunoco brand manager. “This sweepstakes engages customers, supports our retail partners, and promotes our relationship with NASCAR at the street level. The promotion will be back in 2011 so make sure you get your decal!”
Sunoco operates more than 4,800 branded retail locations that market transportation fuels and convenience store merchandise in 23 states.
