Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - A lucky entrant in a John Force Racing contest co-sponsored by the Brand Source buying group spent New Year's Eve on a Carnival Elation cruise ship bound for Baja, Mexico.
Wendy Kruz, a fan of the family racing team, was randomly chosen from more than 40,000 entries received by Brand Source at its raceway booths and Web site to win first prize in the 2009 Full Throttle Drag Racing Series sweepstakes.
Joining Kruz on the John Force Racing Fan Cruise III will be funny car drivers John Force, daughter Ashley Force Hood, Mike Neff and 2009 funny car champion Robert Hight, along with top alcohol dragster drivers Brittany and Courtney Force. The group is spending five days and four nights on the Elation, with Kruz encamped in the penthouse cabin.
Other Force fans won six Whirlpool washer/dryer pairs and four Mitsubishi TVs through Brand Source's own "Win With Force" contest.
The buying group said it is planning a new John Force Racing promotion this year, in conjunction with Ford Motor Company.
