Six U.S. auto enthusiasts are fuelling their favorite rides for free thanks to Shell. With more than 5,000 entrants vying for a chance to win up to five years of free Shell gasoline in the third annual Shell V-Power “Fuel My Passion” Sweepstakes, these six lucky winners drove away with Shell V-Power premium gasoline.
Whether a proud owner of a Nissan 300zx Twin Turbo from Kirtland, Ohio or an auto enthusiast who owned a custom 1968 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia from Lakeland, Fla., each entrant had a passion for their ride! As one entrant described his car — “it’s my best friend.” This was informed by Shell Oil Products US today, July 15.
To promote the sweepstakes, Shell created a special online destination for auto enthusiasts to showcase their rides. Everyone who participated in the sweepstakes was automatically entered to win a year’s supply of free Shell V-Power premium gasoline.
In addition, they were invited to share their photo entry through a number of social media channels in an attempt to gain online votes. Ultimately, the entrant with the most votes would win five years of free Shell gasoline.
With much persistence and a crusade to get his peers to vote, T. Watkins from Claremont, Calif. was declared the Grand Prize Winner and received five years of Shell V-Power premium gasoline!
As the Grand Prize winner, he said, “I’m still in disbelief, and lacking the ability to properly express my gratitude, I can only simply say thank you. Thank you for the great prize! While my bike is more of a putt-putt than a vroom-vroom, the quality of fuel and the different rewards programs that Shell has to offer help ease the pump pain.”
In addition, five secondary prize winners were selected at random to receive a year’s supply of free Shell V-Power premium gasoline.
