Tim Gillespie of Cameron Park, California was the Grand Prize winner of a $1,000 gift card to the motorcycle dealership of his choice after submitting his winning photo, “Sturgis Bikes 2009” pictured left. The photo contest was judged based on creativity as well as quality.
“End of the Ride” photographer Ron Storrm of Wausaukee, Wisconsin was awarded a $100 gift card to the motorcycle dealership of his choice after receiving the Most Voted Award from daily votes submitted to the www.e85challenge.com website. Note the glass of “ethanol” in that photo!
“This contest was about passion for motorcycles, that American pride, and how the combination of an American fuel like ethanol just makes sense,” said Robert White, RFA Director of Market Development. “It was also about education and teaching fellow riders that motorcycles and other small engines can use up to 10% ethanol safely and effectively.”
The RFA Market Development team conducted promotional and advertising events throughout the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground and town of Sturgis by handing out 10,000 take home palm cards to the rally-goers with information about ethanol, RFA’s consumer website ChooseEthanol.com and the E85 Challenge contest.
