NASHVILLE PREDATORS AND FORD
ASK FANS TO COUNT PUCKS FOR A TRUCK

Preds and Ford give fans the chance to win a 2011 Ford F-150

Nashville, Tenn. (February 16, 2011) – The Nashville Predators and Middle Tennessee Ford Dealerships are teaming up now through March 29 to help one lucky fan drive home a brand new 2011 Ford F-150.
 
In honor of Ford Truck Month, fans guessing the number of pucks placed in the bed of a special Nashville Predators Ford truck, located in Ford Road Show display outside section 115 at Bridgestone Arena, will be entered to win a 2011 Ford F-150. Entries may be submitted online through nashvillepredators.com/ford or in arena at the Ford Road Show display at all remaining Predators games and Bridgestone Arena events through March 29. Contest finalists will be invited to the April 8 Fan Appreciation game vs. the Columbus Blue Jackets and one of those lucky fans will drive away the owner of a brand new 2011 Ford F-150.
 
“Ford has a strong partnership with the Nashville Community, and with several local dealerships, is a proud member of Middle Tennessee,” Middle Tennessee Ford Dealer Jerry White said. “For the last year, Ford has partnered with two community heavyweights: Bridgestone Arena and the Nashville Predators. The Ford Road Show display in Bridgestone Arena is second to none, and it always showcases the great selection of Ford’s cutting edge vehicles. This year during Ford Truck Month, the Ford Road Show display will feature the Ford F-150 Giveaway. One lucky Predator fan will win a new 2011 Ford F-150, America’s number one selling truck for 34 years. We can’t think of a better way to reward Predator fans for their loyalty to their team and the community.”
 
“This fantastic promotion is a further extension of our already great partnership with Ford,” Nashville Predators Executive Vice President and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Parker said. “Ford recognizes the passion and loyalty of our fans and believes in the power of the Predators rapidly growing fan base. Coupled with the Ford F-150, the top selling truck in America, this unique activation brings life and excitement to their Road Show concourse display as well as the Middle Tennessee market.”
