MADISON, WISCONSIN…Western Star Trucks today has awarded DeForest, Wisconsin resident Michael Paul a 2003 Harley-Davidson V-Rod VRSCA. Paul, who won the motorcycle after his entry was selected at random out of a pool of 4,500 contestants in the Western Star-Harley-Davidson Sweepstakes, was presented with the keys during a ceremony at Badger Trucks of Madison.
Paul entered the contest at the Mid-America Truck Show in Louisville, Ky., earlier this year. The contest began in March and solicited entries at three different truck shows across the country, also including the North American Truck Show in Boston and International Trucking Show in Las Vegas.
“It’s unbelievable, I have never won anything before,” said Paul, an owner/operator for Landstar Inway. “I will definitely enjoy riding it. In fact, my wife has even talked about taking lessons.”
