PHILADELPHIA -- Sunoco, the official fuel of NASCAR, kicked off its fifth annual Free Fuel 5000 summer promotion on June 1.
The Free Fuel 5000 rewards loyal Sunoco customers with free gas prizes all summer long through Aug. 31.
Consumers are encouraged to enter by stopping at one of more than 4,000 participating Sunoco stations to pick up a free Sunoco/NASCAR decal and displaying it on their car—the same decal featured on every car in NASCAR. Sunoco will deploy professional spotting teams throughout the summer and, if a consumer is spotted with the decal displayed on their vehicle at or near a Sunoco station, they instantly will win a gift card for free gas.
The spotting teams will reward up to 15,000 instant winners who will be automatically entered in the grand prize drawing for 5,000 gallons of quality gasoline from Sunoco. Consumers can win Sunoco gift cards again and again, every time they are spotted.
"Sunoco is looking forward to another summer of rewarding our loyal consumers with free gas as well as providing one lucky Sunoco customer with 5,000 gallons of free fuel." said Drew Kabakoff, Sunoco manager/brand marketing. "The Free Fuel 5000 is Sunoco's way of thanking our customers for their continued support."
Customers can log onto www.GoSunoco.com for the official rules, to find participating locations and view photos of the winners as they are spotted at Sunoco stations.
The Philadelphia-based oil company separately announced it completed the sale of its 85,000 barrel-per-day refinery in Tulsa, Okla., to Holly Corp. for $65 million.
Speaking on the transaction, Sunoco Chairman and CEO Lynn Elsenhans said: "We are grateful to the many talented and hard-working employees who made the facility successful for so many years. We wish them well as they join Holly. By completing this sale, we are taking another step in our efforts to realign our portfolio of assets and improve our competitiveness."
The Tulsa refinery, which began production in 1913, had been a part of Sunoco’s refining system since 1968.
With 825,000 barrels per day of refining capacity, approximately 4,700 retail sites selling gasoline and convenience items, approximately 6,000 miles of crude oil and refined product owned and operated pipelines and 43 product terminals, Sunoco is one of the largest independent refiner-marketers in the United States.
