Goodyear Creates NHRA Contest


AKRON, Ohio — With the launch of Goodyear’s Access Granted Sweepstakes, the tiremaker has announced it will be sending two lucky race fans to the 2014 NHRA Winternationals.

The grand prize for the sweepstakes, which runs until Oct. 11, 2013, is a trip for two to attend the 2014 NHRA drag racing season opener in Pomona, California. The prize includes round trip airfare, hotel accommodations, ground transportation and tickets to the event, along with a set of four Goodyear tires — like Goodyear’s new Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar®. Four first prize winners will also be selected to win a set of Goodyear tires.

“As the Official Tire of NHRA, we’re excited to give drag racing fans the opportunity to experience the performance of our race tires first-hand,” said Gary Melliere, Goodyear’s general manager of sponsorships. “Just as importantly, they’ll also get to experience how Goodyear tires perform on their own car or truck.”
