FULLERTON, CA. – (Jan. 20, 2014) – Yokohama Tire Corporation (YTC) is serious about car enthusiasts. So serious, in fact, they’re dishing out cash to the best ride on the road – and that’s only the beginning, thanks to #RidePride, Yokohama’s new Facebook contest that starts today and runs through March 2.
“There are some great cars on the road that consumers spend a lot of time and money modifying. #RidePride will provide them with well-deserved recognition,” said Andrew Briggs, Yokohama director, marketing and product planning. “The contest will also give participants the opportunity to trade-up to tires designed to improve the driving experience, like Yokohama’s ultra high-performance ADVAN Neova® AD08 R and ADVAN Sport® V105.”
Consumers enter by submitting a photo of their vehicle and share what they love about the driving experience to YTC’s #RidePride Facebook page. All fans and followers have six weeks to vote for their favorites. The person with the most votes each week will also be awarded a set of Yokohama tires.
The grand prize, second prize and third prize winners get tiered cash prizes. Additionally, the grand prize winner wins a photo shoot with their vehicle shot by a professional automotive photographer. All three will also win a set of tires.
Additionally, all voters and contestants will automatically be entered to win other prizes, including tires and Yokohama merchandise.
