To receive one (1) Sweepstakes Entry, Event attendees must register on-site and complete an official entry form by providing all requested information via handheld computer device or ballot, available while supplies last, at an Event during the posted hours of operation of that Event (“Event Entry”). ALL EVENT ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE POSTED CLOSING TIME OF EACH EVENT.
2) VIA WEBSITE – During the Sweepstakes Period, visit www.pbr.com/ford (the “Website”), complete the online entry form with the required contact information (“Entry”) and submit the completed Entry as directed. ALL ONLINE ENTRIES MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 11:59 PM ET on 10/22/17. In the event more than one (1) Entry is received from any one person or email address, the first entry processed will be considered the only valid Entry received for the Sweepstakes. In the event of a dispute, Entries will be deemed made by the authorized account holder of the email address submitted at the time of Entry. The authorized account holder is the natural person who is assigned to the email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization that is responsible for assigning email addresses, or the domain associated with the submitted email address. The potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder. Entries that are incomplete or corrupted are void. Limit: One entry per person or email address, regardless of method of entry.
WINNER SELECTION AND VERIFICATION: One (1) potential winner will be selected in random drawings on or about 10/23/17 from among all eligible Entries received. Drawing will be conducted by Administrator, an independent judging organization. Administrator will attempt to contact potential winner by phone. Potential winner must respond by telephone within twenty-four (24) hours of the Administrator’s first attempt to contact him/her in order to be eligible to claim the prize. If a potential winner timely responds, Administrator will orally request information from the potential winner to confirm preliminary eligibility, including potential winner’s availability to attend the Grand Prize Trip. If a potential winner is deemed potentially eligible based on the preliminary questions, Administrator will send an Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability and, unless prohibited by law, a Publicity Release form (“Affidavit/Release”) to the potential winner by email or facsimile to be executed and returned by email or facsimile within forty-eight (48) hours from the delivery of Administrator’s email or facsimile. If the potential winner cannot be contacted within the specified time after the first attempt to contact him/her, if he/she fails to execute and return the Affidavit/Release within the required time period, or if he/she is otherwise ineligible to receive the prize, an alternate will be selected in his/her place and Administrator will attempt to contact and obtain the required Affidavit/Release from that potential winner. Except where prohibited by law, acceptance of prize constitutes permission for Sponsor to use winner’s name, hometown, likeness, statements and other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without additional prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review. Potential winner may be subject to a background investigation at Sponsor’s discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify potential winner based on its review of the results of the background check. Odds of winning any drawing depend on the number of eligible Entries received.
