Grand Prize Takes Winner to 2010 Coca-Cola 600 Race
ST. LOUIS, (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Hardee's® has teamed up with Coca-Cola North America to offer a NASCAR collectors' cup and instant win game. Until May 24, 2009, burger fans will receive a special-edition racing cup with any large combo meal or large beverage purchase. The cup features members of the 2009 Coca-Cola Racing Family (Greg Biffle, Denny Hamlin, David Ragan, Kyle Petty and Jeff Burton), as well as an instant peel-and-win chance to win one of 40,000 prizes.
"Hardee's always tries to keep on the pulse of our customers and we have a huge base of NASCAR fans in our markets," said Steve Lemley, vice president of field marketing at Hardee's.

Grand prize is a 4-day/3-night trip for two for the 2010 Coca-Cola 600 in Charlotte, NC. The prize package includes air travel and hotel accommodations, race tickets, and access to the VIP hospitality tent that will have special appearances by members of the Coca-Cola Racing Family.
