Pilot Flying J Awards Harley-Davidson Motorcycle to Loyalty Member
Tim Wagner is the winner of the “Let It Ride” 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle giveaway sponsored by Mars and Pilot Flying J. He picked up his brand new motorcycle on a particularly chilly Friday in January.
Wagner, a veteran driver of 32 years who drives in the heavy haul division of Heavy Haulers Inc. based out of Jesup, Ga., was rather incredulous when he got the phone call telling him he had won. “When you first called and said it was Challenge Magazine, I figured you were going to do a survey,” he recalls. “Then when you said you were going to make my day I thought maybe I won 10 showers.” The Harley came as a complete surprise, he says. “I thought, you gotta be kidding me. I don’t win stuff like that. This is the first time anything like this has happened to me.”
All registered holders of the MyRewards card were eligible to win at more than 650 Pilot and Flying J travel centers across the country. Cardholders entered using in-store kiosks, in-store transactions, the Challenge Magazine website and mail-in entries. Cardholders that purchased qualifying Mars items received five additional entries.
“Our loyalty program is the best on the interstate,”
Previous sweepstakes prizes have included an all-inclusive trip to Big Cedar Lodge, a trip to the Super Bowl, a $15,000 fuel giveaway and a $10,000 cash giveaway. Currently, loyalty cardholders have a chance to win a trip to the 2014 NCAA Men’s Final Four Tournament. For more details, visit www.ptcchallenge.com.
