March 05, 2013 // Franchising.com // JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Inspired by the success of their Coca-Cola Freestyle® fountain relationship, Firehouse Subs and Coca-Cola are teaming up once again, this time to rev up the engines of Firehouse Subs fans and stock car racing enthusiasts alike with a national sweepstakes.
From February 24 to April 21, Coca-Cola is running a Coca-Cola Photo Finish sweepstakes at Firehouse Subs locations where a Coca-Cola Racing Family member will be individually assigned to each of Firehouse Subs five regions, and a life-size cutout of the member is displayed in each restaurant. The participating Coca-Cola Racing Family members are Joey Logano , representing the Georgia and Gulf region, Greg Biffle , representing the West and Central region, Danica Patrick , representing the Florida region, Denny Hamlin , representing the South region, and Tony Stewart , representing the Mid-Atlantic region.
Firehouse Subs guests are encouraged to visit local restaurants to snap a photo with the cutout to be entered to win the Coca-Cola Photo Finish contest. Guests submit their photos via text, on CocaColaPhotoFinish.com or through US Mail. One grand prize winner will win a Coca-Cola Ultimate NASCAR Fan Experience, including two tickets to the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ race at Atlanta Motor Speedway, a ride-along with a Coca-Cola Racing Family member, airfare and hotel for two and a $500 cash gift card. Additionally, all participants in the region with the most entries will be awarded access to a Firehouse Pit Stop Bonus of a free medium sub from 5-6 p.m. on Sunday, May 5, valid for the first 100 guests. Grand prize drawing will be held around April 30, 2013 and the winner will be notified via email, phone, text or US Mail.

"Firehouse Subs is excited to partner with Coca-Cola and provide guests an incredible opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of a NASCAR race," says Firehouse Subs Director of Brand Marketing Kristen Majdanics . "Stock car racing fans are known for their passion and enthusiasm for the sport, and in much the same way that Firehouse Subs is dedicated to extinguishing a firefighter-size appetite, we're thrilled that Coca-Cola is able to connect Firehouse Subs to loyal racing fans nationwide."
