Already beloved characters, your Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers Motor City Wheels racing mascots return to Comerica Park tomorrow! Fans can catch the Wheels sprinting through the ballpark during the fourth-inning break this season.
There are five mascots in total; each of which represents a classic Chevrolet vehicle. Shelly Chevelle and Cam Aro enter their second season of competition, while Bella Air, Corey Vette and Petey Pickup are the three-year veterans of the group.
There is extra incentive to interact with these LIVE people-powered mascots. Fans choosing to participate will have a chance to win some great prizes this season – including a $500 gift card and, brace yourselves, a brand new 2016 Chevrolet Malibu!
It’s quite simple to enter the Motor City Wheels Malibu Giveaway. Immediately following each race, fans can text the winning mascot’s name to a specified number. They will then receive a bounce-back text prompting them to enter their information. It’s that easy! The giveaway runs from now until August 31 at each Tigers home game. You must be age 18 or older to enter.
Four grand prize finalists will be randomly selected to attend a home game tentatively scheduled for Sept. 24. The finalists will participate in a postgame ceremony on the field where the Grand Prize winner of the All-New 2016 Chevy Malibu will be randomly chosen. The other three finalists will receive consolation prizes.
Additionally, a $500 Giveaway will be held via social media. Fans are invited to post their photos with the Mascots on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using the hashtag #chevydetroitwheels. The winner will be randomly selected and receive a $500 Visa gift card.
Fans can take photos with the mascots prior to each Tigers home game as the Motor City Wheels dance and play around in the concourse. Plus, The DTE Energy Squad will be handing out 5×7 peel-able souvenir stickers of the mascots. You can collect all 6 designs! For bios, specs and more fun, check out www.chevydetroit.com/motorcitywheels. The photo contest runs until Sept. 15.
Both the Tigers and the Wheels are in for a great 2016 season. Be sure to head down to Comerica Park this year to catch both a ballgame and the mascot race!
