KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J is celebrating the unofficial start of summer on National Road Trip Day (May 27) by offering a $50,000 fuel giveaway and summer deals.

With more Americans anxious to make up lost vacation time, recent surveys suggest an overwhelming majority prefer driving as the leading choice for reaching their summer destinations, stated Pilot Flying J, which is asking consumers to posttheir road trip memories and photos on Pilot Flying J's Facebook for the chance to win a $500 gift card as part of the fuel giveaway.

"When it comes to making summer memories, half the fun is how you get there," said Jason Nordin, chief operator for Pilot Flying J. "Many Americans are ready to enjoy a summer getaway and we are anticipating road trips to be one of the primary ways families choose to travel this year. Pilot Flying J is excited to welcome drivers, whether they are staying closer to home or trekking cross country, as the ultimate place to stock up on road trip essentials."

Pilot Flying J will offer daily chances for travelers to win $500 Pilot gas cards. To enter, customers need to visit Pilot Flying J's Facebook page from May 25 to 29 to share road trip favorites, memories and photos.

In addition to the giveaways, road trippers can tailor their trip routes and save as they go with special offers and 3 cents off a gallon of gas and auto diesel by using Pilot Flying J's myRewards Plus app. Deals in the app also include daily offers on drinks, snacks and merchandise, as well as "summer sizzler" buy-one-get-one-free offers every week, according to the company.
