Chicago, Jan 24, 2006 – The Dodge brand announced today a search to recruit the finest “seat stealers” for a fanny-tastic sporting event at the 2006 Chicago Auto Show.
The Dodge Ram Mega Musical Chairs event will take place at the 2006 Chicago Auto Show on Friday, Feb. 10, and will bring fame and glory to one Grand Prize winner who’ll end up sitting in the driver’s seat of a new 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab with the biggest cab on the market. The contest is designed to give taxi cab snaggers, bus seat bouncers and couch potatoes something better to do with their backsides.
“Musical chairs is a universally favorite game and we at Dodge just mega-sized the game with more at stake than just a chair,” said Fred Diaz, Director – Dodge Communications, Chrysler Group. “The Dodge Ram Mega Musical Chairs contestants will spend time sizing up the Dodge Ram Mega Cab with the industry’s most innovative seating and storage configurations, including the first reclining rear seats available in a pickup truck. One person will go home a Dodge Ram Mega Cab winner.”
The Dodge Ram Mega Musical Chairs takes place in the morning on Friday, Feb. 10, 2006, at McCormick Place in the Dodge brand display area located in Hall A2 South. As many as 150 contestants will take part in the competition, but only six will make it to the final round (no ifs, ands or butts!). Only one player will win the Dodge Ram Mega Musical Chairs as he/she lands in the driver’s seat of a new 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab.
Interested participants must be 18 years or older and can enter online when they visit http://www.Dodge.com/RamMegaMusicalChairs. Entries must be received by midnight on Monday, Feb. 6. A random drawing will follow to select 150 people to participate and receive two free tickets to attend the 2006 Chicago Auto Show on Feb. 10.
The ultimate Ram Mega Musical Chairs Grand Prize winner will drive away in a 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab, the only truck with a cab large enough to comfortably seat six; second runner-up will receive $1,000 in prizes and cash, while the four remaining runners-up will receive $250 in prizes.
