RNR Tire Express Gifts a Piece of Movie Magic in 2022 Father’s Day Giveaway

Tire & Wheel Retailer Surprises Deserving Father with Jurassic Park-Themed 1995 Jeep Wrangler

June 21, 2022 // Franchising.com // TAMPA - RNR Tire Express(RNR) announced open nominations for their 2022 Father’s Day Giveaway early last month. In the weeks since, well over 10,000 submissions were sent in from families all throughout the country - each sharing personal details of the sacrifices and commitments made by their fathers every single day. This year’s prize is a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ Sahara, inspired by and customized to match the original Jurassic Park film franchise. Complete with a brand-new set of Candy Apple Red Fuel Forged Wheels in Nitto Mud Grappler Tires, a 4″ Lift Kit and custom Jurassic Park paint job, the Jeep is a one-of-a-kind model.

Only after reading through each submission was Chris Festo of Archer, Florida selected as the winner and recipient of this year’s giveaway. Together, his family and friends joined the RNR team at the company’s Leesburg location to surprise Chris with the gift of a lifetime. A gift that, given his lifelong fandom of Jurassic Park films and related memorabilia, will be one he remembers for all the days of his life, to say the very least

“Chris is the best dad to his girls and a huge Jurassic Park fan. He has been collecting Jurassic Park memorabilia since the first time he read the book as a young teenager,” said Heather Festo, Chris’s wife. “He passed this love of Jurassic Park on to our oldest. Before COVID, they’d proudly display their collection during the annual collector’s day at our local museum.” 

The annual giveaway serves as an opportunity for the RNR team to recognize and celebrate the tireless work done by dads throughout the country, alongside the family members responsible for nominating them. And while all of the nominees are deserving of praise this Father’s Day, it was the touching examples shared by Chris’s family of the devotion and compassion he’s shown to his young girls that earned him the top spot

“The excitement surrounding this giveaway was palpable. Not only for us here at RNR but for those in the Festo family that helped coordinate the surprise,” said Adam Sutton, President of RNR Tire Express. “As a company that takes every opportunity to give back when and where it can, it was one of our most unique such endeavors to date, hands down.”

“I was shaking. Truly, it was a speechless moment for me,” said Chris Festo. “My only advice to all the other dads out there is to be nice to your wife, because she might do nice things for you in return, like win you a free car.”
