The Internet is full of opportunities to win new Fords, but the crew at Monster Energy is offering the kind of opportunity that you just can’t pass up. Yes, the makers of the energy drinks that you know and love are offering a high-energy list of prizes. You can enter to win one of two Fords, one of five Ken Block driving experiences, and one of 100 Hoonigan gift cards.
“…And, if you’re anything like us, you’d love to get your hands on one of the just 2,000 Ford Focus RSs that will finally be making their way to the US next year!” says the contest site. “Luckily for all of us, Monster Energy is giving you the chance of a lifetime. Enter now to be one of two winners who will receive the exciting, new Ford Focus RS or one of five winners who will fly with a friend to Utah for the ultimate driving experience…”
According to the contest rules, “Each Grand Prize winner may select one (1) 2016 Ford vehicle from either of the Fiesta, Focus, or Mustang nameplates, with the vehicle’s approximate retail value (“ARV”) not to exceed $40,000. The ARV of each Grand Prize will not exceed $40,000.”
So, while the contest page touts the ability to win a 2016 Focus RS—which we fully endorse—you can apparently choose a hot hatch or a Mustang valued up to $40,000. From that we can infer that the new Focus RS will come in at under $40,000, which is definitely good news.
Even if you don’t win one of the two cars, there’s a chance that you could win an amazing driving experience with the Hoonigan himself, Gymkhana master Ken Block. Monster will award five such prizes, which include airfare, hotels, $500 in spending cash, and a custom Ford Performance Racing School program.
Certainly the odds are tougher for the big prizes, but with 100 Hoonigan.com gift cards on the line, there’s a good chance you might win something, so head over to the contest page and sign up.
