Hercules Tires Announces Destination Recreation Sweepstakes Winners

The contest, which asked people to share their favorite vacation photo for a chance to win a road-trip getaway, received thousands of submissions from all over the U.S.

Four winners were announced today for Hercules Tires’ Destination Recreation summer sweepstakes. The contest, which asked people to share their favorite vacation photo for a chance to win a road-trip getaway, received thousands of submissions from all over the U.S.

“We are so grateful to everyone who entered the sweepstakes,” said Suzy Mitchell, manager, brand development, for Hercules. “Every day of the contest, our office went on a virtual vacation through pictures from France, Costa Rica, Mexico and wonderful National Parks like Yosemite. You shared photos from destination weddings and once-in-a-lifetime family holidays, and the stories behind the photos were sometimes hilarious, often touching. One of the best parts of the sweepstakes has been notifying the winners.”

Grand-prize winners received tickets to an amusement park, water resort, off-road park or recreation destination of their choice, as well as hotel accommodations, $500 spending cash and a new set of Hercules tires. First- and second-prize winners also were chosen.

Matt Turpen from Springfield, Illinois, will be taking his wife and five-year old son to Disney World for the first time.

Additional winners include Lisa Sievers from Philadelphia; Laura Ruger from Harding, Pennsylvania; and Pamela Morrison from Gilbert, South Carolina. Morrison has elected to visit San Antonio in the fall. She is related to Davey Crockett and plans to see the Alamo. Sievers and her husband have made new dining experiences their destination of choice. Ruger is looking forward to visiting Williamsburg for an amusement park adventure and historic sightseeing.

“With this contest, we wanted to honor the American tradition of the summer road trip,” said Jedd Emans, vice president of marketing for Hercules tires. “We know there isn’t a one-size fits all kind of vacation, and we wanted our winners to have a memorable getaway. It’s been an incredible experience for us, and we look forward to seeing the pictures our winners take during their getaways.”
