Sunoco (NYSE: SUN) announced today the start of the eighth annual Free Fuel 5000 where one lucky driver will win 5,000 gallons of Sunoco fuel. Between now and August, Sunoco will have spotters at thousands of retail locations looking for automobiles sporting the familiar Sunoco: Official Fuel of NASCAR decal. Spotted drivers will win a Sunoco gas card instantly, and will be entered into the grand prize drawing for 5,000 gallons of Sunoco gasoline. In a car that gets at least 20 miles per gallon, that’s enough gasoline to travel 100,000 miles.
“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.”
Last year, 9,445 people instantly won $10 Sunoco gift cards after being spotted at one of 4,300 participating locations in 21 states and the District of Columbia over the summer.
