After dissemination by the entrant of the social media message (with all required hashtags), the entrant must complete an online entry form.

The entrant must complete and submit the form prior to the conclusion of the Entry Period. Completion of the entry form will require the entrant to acknowledge the entrant’s acceptance of the Official Rules and to supply certain contact information and such other information as Sponsor may require; AND
    4. Submission of a Social Entry or sending a social media message with the hashtags referred as instructed constitutes the entrant’s acknowledgement of and acceptance of these Official Rules.

The Social Entry – if applicable – social media platform, may contain additional technical specifications, with which the photo or video must be compliant.  Such technical specifications are made a part of these Official Rules and incorporated herein by reference. In the event of any inconsistency between the Official Rules and such technical specifications, the technical specifications will prevail, govern and control only with regard to the photo/video; and, in all other respects, these Official Rules shall prevail, govern and control.

ENTRY RESTRICTIONS: Any acknowledgment of receipt of an Entry does not constitute any representation as to the eligibility of the Entry or that the Entrant submitting same has been selected in the Initial Round of the Contest. 

Except for a third party taking the photo (or recording the video) of Entrant, the Entry must be solely the original work of the Entrant. Joint, group or team Entries are NOT permitted. Any representations, statements and/or claims made in the video or photo and accompanying caption must be truthful and Sponsor reserves the right to condition selection in the Initial Round of the Contest upon Entrant providing adequate substantiation establishing the truth and accuracy of such representations/statements/claims. Failure to timely provide such substantiation or if materials furnished by Entrant in an attempt to substantiate representations/statements/claims made in his/her Entry are determined by Sponsor/Administrator to be inadequate or unreliable will result in disqualification.

Once submitted, Entrant cannot supplement, modify or alter his/her the video or photo and accompanying caption except as expressly set forth below (should Entrant be selected in the Initial Round of the Contest and perhaps advance further in the Contest).  Video or photo and accompanying caption must have been created specifically for this Contest and cannot have been previously published or have won an award or prize in any other contest or competition. 

THERE IS A LIMIT OF ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON OR EMAIL ADDRESS: Any attempt by an Entrant to obtain more than one (1) Entry will void all of that Entrant’s entries other than the initial Entry received. However, repeated or egregious violations of the entry limit (as determined in the sole discretion of Sponsor/Administrator) may result in ALL entries being declared void and disqualification from the Contest.  

Entrant agrees that all Entries [as used in this and subsequent sections, including the one (1) minute video submitted by an Entrant selected to potentially advance to the Second Round as well as any materials submitted by a Finalist in participating in the Final Round, to the extent applicable] shall meet the following requirements and guidelines (any Entry that, in Sponsor’s sole and absolute discretion, violates the following criteria will be disqualified and will not be considered an Eligible Entry):

Additionally, if any Entry contains any material or elements that are not owned by the Entrant  submitting same, and/or which are subject to the rights of third parties, Entrant is responsible for obtaining, prior to submission of the Entry, any and all releases and consents necessary to permit the use and exhibition of the Entry by Sponsor in the manner set forth in these Official Rules, including, without limitation, name and likeness permissions from any person who appears in or is identifiable in the Entry. Sponsor reserves the right to request proof of these permissions in a form acceptable to Sponsor from Entrant at any time.  Failure to provide such proof may, if requested, render the Entry null and void.  By submitting an Entry, Entrant warrants and represents that he/she and any persons appearing or who are identifiable in the Entry consent to the submission and use of the Entry in the Contest and to its use as otherwise set forth herein. Sponsor shall have the right to modify a video or photo and accompanying caption to bring the Entry in compliance with these requirements should it feel it is necessary in its sole discretion. All Entries will be reviewed for content eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules. Entries containing false information, prohibited material or inappropriate content, as determined by the Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may be disqualified from the Contest.

Sponsor makes the final determination as to what Entries are eligible to take part in this Contest. By participating, Entrant grants Sponsor and its agents the unconditional, irrevocable, worldwide right to publish, use, adapt, edit and/or modify such Entry in any way, in any and all media, without limitation, and without consideration to the Entrant. BY SUBMITTING THE ORIGINAL ENTRY, SUCH ENTRANT REPRESENTS AND WARRANTS THAT HE/SHE HAS ALL RIGHT, TITLE, AND INTEREST NECESSARY TO GRANT THE RELEASED PARTIES THE WORLDWIDE, IRREVOCABLE AND UNRESTRICTED RIGHT AND LICENSE TO ADAPT, PUBLISH, USE, EDIT AND/OR MODIFY SUCH ENTRY IN ANY WAY AND POST THE ORIGINAL ENTRY ON THE INTERNET AND USE THE ORIGINAL ENTRY IN ANY OTHER WAY AND AGREES TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD RELEASED PARTIES HARMLESS FROM ANY CLAIMS TO THE CONTRARY. IN ADDITION, IF AT ANY TIME DURING THE  ENTRY PERIOD FOR THE CONTEST OR AT ANY TIME THEREAFTER, SPONSOR DETERMINES THAT THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH OR NO ELIGIBLE ENTRIES EXIST FROM WHICH TO DETERMINE THE WINNERS FOR THE CONTEST, THEN SPONSOR MAY IN ITS SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE DISCRETION DETERMINE THAT NOT ENOUGH OR NO ELIGIBLE ENTRIES EXIST, AND THEN MAY EITHER SUSPEND OR TERMINATE THE CONTEST OR MODIFY THE CONTEST (OR ANY PARTS THEREOF) IN ANY EQUITABLE MANNER THAT SPONSOR DEEMS APPROPRIATE IN ITS SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE DISCRETION, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, BY NOT AWARDING THE PRIZES SET FORTH IN THESE OFFICIAL RULES.

Sponsor may (but is in no way obligated to) post Entries on the Website and perhaps elsewhere. Such posting is intended for entertainment and informational purposes only. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, SUCH POSTING DOES NOT CONSTITUTE ANY REPRESENTATION BY SPONSOR OR ADMINISTRATOR AS TO THE ELIGIBLITY OF AN ENTRY OR NOTIFICATION THAT THE CORRESPONDING ENTRANT HAS BEEN SELECTED AS A PRIZE WINNER IN THE CONTEST OR HAS BEEN INDUCTED AS A MEMBER OF THE FORD HALL OF FANS. **THE PRECEDING EXPRESSLY EXCLUDES THE POSTING OF SEMI-FINALISTS’ VIDEOS FOR THE SECOND ROUND OF THE CONTEST AS DISCUSSED BELOW.

IF POSTED, ENTRIES REPRESENT SOLELY THE VIEWS/OPINIONS OF THE INDIVIDUAL ENTRANT BUT DO NOT REFLECT THE VIEWS/OPINIONS OF SPONSOR AND/OR NASCAR IN ANY MANNER. SPONSOR IS ACTING AS A PASSIVE CONDUIT FOR THE POSTING OF ENTRIES AND DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR SCREENING, MONITORING OR REVIEWING ENTRIES PRIOR TO POSTING OF SAME.

WINNER SELECTION:

Initial Round - During the Promotion Period, a judging panel comprised of members of Sponsor will review all eligible Entries based on the following criteria: Creativity (50%); Compelling Story (25%); Originality (25%). The Entrants who submitted the top sixteen (16) Entries will potentially advance to the Second Round of Judging as described below, subject to compliance with verification and other requirements including a background check.  In the event of a tie, the advancing Entry/Entries will be determined based on an additional judges’ review of the tied Entries based on the foregoing criteria. 

The Entrants who submitted the top sixteen (16) Entries as determined by the judging panel will be contacted by the Administrator by email and/or telephone on or about 8/23/2019. (Should Sponsor choose to allow for entry on social media and a selected Entrant participated via this method, Sponsor may alternatively contact such selected Entrant via private message from the official Ford account on such social media platform; e.g., @Ford on Twitter. IT IS THE ENTRANT’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO CONFIRM THAT HIS/HER PRIVACY SETTINGS ARE CONFIGURED SO AS TO ALLOW FOR THE OFFICIAL FORD ACCOUNT TO CONTACT HIM/HER.) Such selected Entrants will be notified periodically during and following the Entry Period, but no later than 8/23/2019. Such potentially advancing Entrant must, within two (2) days of notification (or perhaps a shorter time period as indicated thereon):

Those potentially advancing Entrants who timely sign, complete and return the above materials are Semi-Finalists, provided that Sponsor determines in its sole discretion that the background check came back clean, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion and that allowing such person to proceed in the Contest will not bring the Sponsor into disrepute or reflect adversely upon the Sponsor’s business reputation or its goodwill. ENTRANT UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT SUCH DECISION BY SPONSOR IS FINAL AND BINDING AND NOT SUBJECT TO APPEAL; AND, IF BACKGROUND CHECK IS DETERMINED BY SPONSOR NOT TO BE “CLEAN,” SPONSOR, AND THE RELEASED PARTIES SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY OF ANY KIND. 

♣IF AN ENTRANT DOES NOT WISH TO CONSENT TO THE BACKGROUND CHECK FOR ANY REASON, HIS/HER SOLE RECOURSE IS TO TERMINATE HIS/HER PARTICIPATION IN THE CONTEST AND FORFEIT THE OPPORTUNITY TO COMPETE TO POSSIBLY WIN PRIZES IN THE CONTEST (AND, IN SUCH CASE, SPONSOR, AND THE RELEASED PARTIES SHALL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILTY OF ANY KIND).

If selected Entrant fails to timely execute and return any of the above documents/materials, if he/she is determined to be ineligible for any reason (including non-compliance with these Official Rules or based on Sponsor’s evaluation of his/her background check); or the selected Entrant cannot be contacted after reasonable effort as determined by Administrator in its sole discretion within two (2) days of notification (or perhaps a shorter time period as indicated thereon), opportunity to advance to the Second Round will be forfeited without compensation of any kind and an alternate Entrant may be selected for possible advancement to the Second Round as set forth above, time permitting.

Sponsor reserves the right to proceed with the Second Round with fewer than sixteen (16) Semi-Finalists without notice or liability of any kind.

(An electronic signature or affirmation or facsimile signature shall have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.)

Second Round - Semi-Finalists’ videos (submitted when qualifying as a Semi-Finalist) will be posted for purposes of public voting on the Website. The public voting is scheduled to take place between 9/14/2019 at 12:00:00 AM ET and 10/14/19 at 11:59:59 PM ET. (But, by posting a notice on the Website, Sponsor may postpone or re-schedule the Second Round.) Each person who registers at the Website will be able to vote once for one (1) Semi-Finalist video: there is a limit of one (1) vote per person/email address. (Violation of this limit may result in all votes from such person being discounted.)  Subject to all eligibility and Contest non-interference rules stated herein, the three (3) Semi-Finalists whose videos receive the most votes, as of the end of the Second Round, are potential Finalists.  In the event of a tie resulting in more than three (3) potential Finalists, the Semi-Finalist among those tied with the higher/highest  ‘Compelling Story’ score from the initial round of judging will advance as a Finalist and will compete in the Final Round.

Each Semi-Finalist warrants that they will not offer any compensation or other benefit of any kind in exchange for a given person to vote for their video (or NOT to vote for another Semi-Finalist’s video) or engage in other activities intended to subvert or manipulate the public vote. ANY ATTEMPT TO TAMPER WITH THE VOTING WILL RESULT IN AUTOMATIC DISQUALIFICATION; AND, SPONSOR, NASCAR AND CONTEST ENTITIES MAY AND RESERVE THE RIGHT TO PURSUE OTHER AVAILABLE LEGAL REMEDIES AGAINST PERSONS BELIEVED TO BE ENGAGED IN SUCH CONDUCT.

For the avoidance of doubt, a Semi-Finalist may vote (once) for his/her video (or another video).

Semi-Finalists understand and agree that:

Semi-Finalists will be notified of selection as a potential Finalist via email on or about 10/21/2019. In order to be confirmed as a Finalist, potential Finalist must agree to accept the Finalist Prize, including attending the Ford Championship Weekend and participating in the Final Round on Saturday, 11/16/2019; if potential Finalist is not available on such dates for any reason, Finalist Prize (including opportunity to compete for a Grand Prize of induction as a member of the Ford Hall of Fans) will be forfeited and an alternate potential Finalist will be selected (i.e., the Semi-Finalist with the next highest vote total in the Second Round will instead be a potential Finalist), time permitting. For the avoidance of doubt, a Finalist must attend the Final Round him/herself and cannot appoint a proxy to do so in his/her place.

Sponsor reserves the right to proceed with the Final Round with fewer than three (3) Finalists without notice or liability of any kind.

After confirmation, Finalists will be publicly announced online and/or otherwise between 10/15/2019 and 10/20/2019 as determined by Sponsor.

Those Semi-Finalists who do not advance to the Finalist Round attend Ford Championship Weekend, will NOT receive any prize.

The results of the Second Round (public voting) are proprietary information to Sponsor and will not be disclosed to Entrants or any other persons.

UP TO THREE (3) FINALIST PRIZES/APPROX. RETAIL VALUE (“ARV”): Trip for each Finalist and one (1) guest to the Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway (Homestead, Florida), where Finalist will compete in the Final Round of the Contest against other Finalists on Saturday, November 16, 2019 (i.e., the day immediately preceding the Ford EcoBoost 400 race). Grand Prize winner will be announced at a date and time determined by Sponsor during or after Ford Championship Weekend. Prize trip consists of roundtrip, coach air travel from a major airport near Finalist’s home (determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) to Miami from 11/14/2019 – 11/18/2019; four (4) nights’ hotel accommodations in Miami  (standard room, double occupancy); ground transfer between airport and hotel in Miami; VIP access for two (2) to the Ford EcoBoost 300 and Ford EcoBoost 400 races (seat location and ticket type are of Sponsor’s sole choosing; tickets are subject to terms/conditions as indicated thereon; tickets are not for re-sale; venue restrictions may apply); and one (1) $750 gift card (issuer is of Sponsor’s sole choosing; gift card is subject to terms/conditions as indicated thereon). ARV: $6,500 each.  (If actual value is less than $6,500, Finalist will not receive difference in value in cash or otherwise.)

Final Round - The Finalists will participate in competitions against one another to determine the Grand Prize winner (i.e., who will qualify for induction as a member in the Ford Hall of Fans and receive their choice of a new  Ford vehicle valued up to $50,000 ARV from among an assortment of vehicles provided by Sponsor in its sole discretion.)  The Final Round competitions may include tests of the Finalists’ knowledge of the history, rules, drivers and personalities of NASCAR; and private presentations to Sponsor (and/or NASCAR personnel) and/or public presentations summarizing the strength of their candidacy for induction into the Ford Hall of Fans. The competitions may (or may not) be the same as those used to determine the inaugural members of the Ford Hall of Fans in last year’s Ford Hall of Fans Contest. 

Each competition will be subject to its own rules and regulations, which will be provided to the Finalists prior to commencement. Such Final Round rules and regulations are made a part of these Official Rules and incorporated herein by reference. If there is any discrepancy between these Official Rules and the Final Round rules and regulations, the Final Round rules and regulations shall prevail, govern and control in all respects. 

If participating in competitions, Finalist must conduct him/herself at all times in a socially responsible, appropriate, well-behaved manner, following all instructions of Sponsor and NASCAR representative as well as exhibiting good sportsmanship. The preceding includes but is not limited to: not cheating in any manner; not interfering with, heckling or interrupting other Finalists; and, not acting in an abusive or argumentative manner toward Sponsor, NASCAR representatives or other persons. In addition, Finalist must be present at the designated times and places so as to compete in the Final Round. Should a given Finalist fail to do so (as determined by Sponsor in their sole discretion and perhaps without warning of any kind) or if a given Finalist does not act in a socially responsible, appropriate and well-behaved manner in conjunction with attendance during the Ford Championship Weekend apart from participation in the Final Round, Finalist will be disqualified. In the event of disqualification, Finalist will forfeit Grand Prize.

The Finalists with the highest score at the end of the Final Round is the Grand Prize winner.  The Grand Prize winner will be announced publicly at a time determined by Sponsor during or after Ford Championship Weekend.

ONE (1) Grand Prize:  The Ford Hall of Fans inductee will receive his/her choice of a new  Ford vehicle with an MSRP not to exceed $50,000. Total ARV of Grand Prize is up to $50,000.  

PRIZE RESTRICTIONS: Finalist Prize is subject to availability and other restrictions. Specifics are at the sole discretion of Sponsor. Guest of Finalist will be required to sign liability release and where permitted by law a publicity release (“Release”) prior to issuance of travel documents. (Again, a facsimile or electronic (scanned) copy of Release or, alternatively, an electronic signature or affirmation, will have the same legal force and effect as a hand-signed document.) If travel guest is a minor in his/her jurisdiction of residence, the guest’s parent/legal guardian must sign the Release on his/her behalf and the Finalist must be the guest’s parent or legal guardian. Finalist and guest (if a minor, guest’s parent or legal guardian on the minor’s behalf) agree to conduct themselves at all times in a socially responsible, appropriate and well-behaved manner, as well as following all instructions of Sponsor/Administrator and their representatives; for the avoidance of doubt, for Finalist Prize trip, this includes both the Final Round and attending the Ford EcoBoost 300 and the Ford EcoBoost 400 stock car race generally. For the Finalist Prize trip, in the unlikely event that the Ford EcoBoost 300 and/or the Ford EcoBoost 400 stock car race is postponed, Sponsor will modify travel dates so as to correspond to the new Race date. If Finalist lives within 200 miles of Homestead, the Finalist may receive ground transfers in lieu of air travel and no additional compensation will be awarded. If Finalist accepts the prize trip without a guest (whether due to time constraints and/or other reason[s]) no additional compensation will be awarded. In all cases, air travel and hotel accommodations will be determined by Sponsor/Administrator in their sole discretion.

All expenses and costs related to acceptance and use of prize not expressly listed above, including but not limited to, food and beverage, souvenirs, travel to/from departure airport, taxes and gratuities, and any expenses and costs incurred in conjunction with participation in the Final Round are entirely the Finalist’s responsibility. No refund or compensation will be made in the event of the cancellation or delay of any flight. Finalist and guest will not receive bonus miles, rewards points or other “perks” in conjunction with prize travel.

Vehicle Prize: Grand Prize Winner is responsible for vehicle registration, license, tax, title and insurance fees and for all costs associated with any available upgrade/option not provided with the prize vehicle and any other expenses related to the acceptance and use of the prize not specified. Winner must take delivery of vehicle within 30 days of notice of availability from Sponsor-selected dealer near winner’s residence or the Grand Prize (i.e., vehicle) may be forfeited. Winner must have a valid U.S. driver’s license and proof of insurance to take delivery. WI residents will not be responsible for sales tax on the vehicle prize. Vehicle awarded may differ from any vehicle shown in promotional materials.

Prizes may not be transferred or assigned. AS STATED ABOVE, FINALIST HIM/HERSELF MUST COMPETE IN THE FINAL ROUND. No cash or other substitution may be made, except by the Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute the prize (or prize component) with another prize/prize component of comparable or greater value if the intended prize/prize component is not available for any reason as determined by the Sponsor in its sole discretion. (The preceding excludes the gift card component of Finalist Prize, in those jurisdictions which mandate that gift cards may be redeemed for cash value by holder.) Winners will be solely responsible for all applicable taxes (not limited to federal, state, local and/or income) on prizes, which will be reported to applicable governmental authorities as required by law. Winners will also be required to provide their Social Security number or tax ID# for tax reporting purposes; and, Sponsor will file an IRS Form 1099 with the Internal Revenue Service for the value of prizes won.

Except where prohibited by law, participation in the Contest constitutes permission for Sponsor and its designees (including NASCAR, Inc. and NASCAR Digital Media, LLC) to use Entrant’s name, hometown, likeness, statements, other personally identifiable information for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes in any media throughout the world without prize, incentive, consideration, consent or review; and upon request, Entrant will provide written consent to such use. With regard to Finalists, the preceding includes but is not limited to Sponsor and its designees possible use of Finalists’ participation in the Final Round for promotional, advertising and marketing purposes. In all cases, as between Finalist/Grand Prize winner on the one hand and Sponsor/NASCAR on the other, Sponsor/NASCAR shall own any and all rights to any recording or broadcast of Finalist’s participation in the Final Round and/or Ford Hall of Fans induction, as applicable (as well as all right, title and interest to the copyrights therein).
