DRAWING. Sponsor will hold a random drawing on or about January 3, 2022 from among all eligible Sweepstakes entries received by Sponsor during the Entry Period and will select one (1) potential grand prize winner in the drawing from all eligible entries received.

WINNER VERIFICATION. The potential grand prize winner is deemed to be a potential winner pending verification of his/her eligibility and compliance with these Official Rules as determined by Sponsor, at Sponsor’s sole discretion. A potential winner will be notified by e-mail provided on the entrant’s entry form. Note: phone messages will not be left during the winner notification process. A potential winner is not a winner of any prize until his/her eligibility has been verified, he/she has signed an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (“Affidavit/Release”), and he/she have received notice from Sponsor that they have won a prize, even if any information on Sponsor’s website on any other location indicates that an entrant has won.  If the potential winner cannot be contacted within forty-eight (48) hours after Sponsor attempts notification, is ineligible to win a prize, fails to return any and all requested documentation (including the Affidavit/Release) within the time stated on the notification (whether or not a potential winner actually receives that notification), refuses the prize, or otherwise fails to comply with these Official Rules, then the potential winner forfeits the prize in its entirety.  If a potential winner forfeits a prize, Sponsor will select a substitute potential winner by random drawing of the remaining eligible entries. There will be three (3) alternate drawings after which the prize will remain unawarded.

GRAND PRIZE. The grand winner will receive (a) one (1) SUPER73-ZX Trooper Tires Bicycle (approximate retail value (“ARV”) equal to $1,995), and (b) one (1) Sponsor gift code for $750 (ARV equal to $750) to be used on ChemicalGuys.com.  ARV of the grand prize is $2,745.  Grand prize winner shall bear all risk of loss or damage to grand prize after it has been delivered.  Sponsor makes no representations or warranties of any kind concerning the appearance, safety or performance of any prize.  Grand prize winner must look to the express manufacturer’s warranty (if any) included with the prize.  Gift card prizes are subject to terms and conditions of applicable gift card.  All prize details are at Sponsor’s sole discretion. Prizes are non-transferable and non-assignable, and will be provided only to the winner, with no substitutions except at the Sponsor’s sole discretion.  The winner is fully responsible for any and all applicable federal, state, and local taxes associated with prize use or acceptance.

Other restrictions may apply.

If for any reason, Sponsor believes the Sweepstakes is not capable of running as planned, Sponsor reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Sweepstakes and/or proceed with the Sweepstakes, including the selection of winners in a manner it deems fair and reasonable.  In the event that entrant breaches any of these Official Rules, Released Parties shall be entitled to and may seek indemnification, to the extent permitted by law, from entrant for recovery of all losses that may be incurred by Released Parties as a result of the aforementioned breach.  Entrants further agree that all rights under Section 1542 of the Civil Code of California (“Section 1542”) and any similar law of any state or territory of the United States that may be applicable with respect to the foregoing release are hereby expressly and forever waived.
