Ford soon will make once-in-a-lifetime dreams come true for Monster Jam® fans, as the deadline draws near for the Built Ford Tough Monsters on Mainstreet Sweepstakes.

The winner of the sweepstakes will enjoy exclusive behind-the-scenes access at an upcoming Monster Jam event, including an opportunity to interact with the drivers and ride the vehicles. It is an experience that only Ford can offer due to its long-standing relationship with Monster Jam, said Kevin Schebil, manager, Ford Truck Communications.

"More than 30 percent of Ford F-Series customers watch Monster Truck events on television," he said. "Our long-standing partnerships with Monster Jam put us in a unique position to offer these fans incredible experiences they will never forget."
