FORT MILL, S.C. – Sept. 03, 2013 – Freightliner Trucks, the Official Hauler of NASCAR, announces its NASCAR Weekend “Freightliner Hauler Challenge” Sweepstakes. Running Sept. 1-28, 2013, the sweepstakes is part of the popular and newly enhanced “Freightliner Hauler Challenge: Journey to Homestead” app, and gives users the opportunity to win one of four all-expense-paid trips to Florida for the chance to see the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion™ be crowned at Homestead-Miami Speedway in November.
The app provides an entertaining and interactive experience that puts users in the driver’s seat of a Freightliner truck that transports NASCAR® teams across virtual routes to the final race of the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. To date, almost 700,000 users have downloaded the game.
The new, updated version of the Freightliner Hauler Challenge app adds the Freightliner Cascadia® 113 Natural Gas (NG) tractor to the lineup of truck models that users can select as they maneuver through roads and obstacles, leading to the final NASCAR-sanctioned race in Homestead. The app also features a dealer locator, Freightliner Trucks product information and much more.
“The addition of the Cascadia 113 NG to the Hauler Challenge lineup adds another element of fun and interest to the game,” said Mary Aufdemberg, director of product marketing for Freightliner Trucks. “It also helps users learn more about our newest product, while also highlighting the environmental benefits of our alternative fuel solutions.”
Powered by the 12-liter Cummins ISX12 G natural gas engine, the Cascadia 113 NG is ideal for regional haul, vocational and refuse applications. This versatile truck offers performance and efficiency with the benefit of natural gas, helping drivers and fleets achieve a greener bottom line.
Grand prizes and secondary prizes – team-signed apparel packages – will be given away each week through Sept. 28, 2013. Additional prizes will be awarded on the Freightliner Trucks’ Facebook page www.facebook.com/freightliner and Twitter feed, @freightliner.
