to incorporate it into other works, in any form, media or technology now known or later developed,
including for promotional or marketing purposes. If requested, Entrant will sign any documentation that
may be required for Sponsor or their designees to make use of the non-exclusive rights Entrant is
granting to use the Submission. Once an entry nomination is submitted, Entrant cannot revise such
entry in any way.
7. Winner Determination: Winners will be determined according to the process set forth below.
After the Contest Period, a panel of qualified judges determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion will
select the three (3) Submissions with the highest-scoring Submission based on the following judging
Impact of Nominee with Respect to the Theme of the Contest (“road warrior”) (50%);
Quality of Submission (25%); and
Ability to emotionally move the Judges (25%).
Subject to the entrants’ and Professional Drivers’ compliance with these Official Rules, the Professional
Driver nominated in the highest scoring Submission will be deemed the potential Grand Prize winner. The
two (2) Professional Drivers nominated in the next highest scoring Submissions, respectively, are the
potential First Prize and Second Prize winners. In the event of a tie, the Professional Driver nominated in
the Submission which received the highest score for “Quality of Submission,” as determined by the
qualified judges in their sole discretion, will be deemed the applicable potential winner from amongst the
tied entrants. Sponsor reserves the right to select fewer than three (3) winners, if, in its sole discretion, it
does not receive a sufficient number of eligible and qualified Submissions. Sponsor will not disclose
judging scores.
8. Winning Entrant/Professional Driver Requirements: Potential winning entrants will be notified on or
around September 15, 2022. A potential winning entrant and potential winning Professional Driver will be
notified via email and asked to provide, within 2 days of the date notice or attempted notice is sent,

Professional Driver’s consent, his/her full name and valid email address. Next, each potential winning
Professional Driver will be required to sign and return a Declaration of Compliance, Liability Waiver and,
where not prohibited, a Publicity Release (“Declaration”) including consent to agree to a confidential
background check, which must be received by Sponsor, within five (5) days of the date notice or
attempted notice is sent, in order to confirm eligibility and claim his/her prize. A Professional Driver’s
participation, prize acceptance and/or prize receipt constitutes his/her full and unconditional agreement to
these Official Rules. If the background check reveals that a potential winning Professional Driver has
engaged in conduct that could damage the reputation of Sponsor or any of the Released Parties, as
determined by Sponsor in its discretion, Sponsor may disqualify potential winner. If a potential winning
entrant or Professional Driver cannot be contacted or fails to provide any requested information or
document within the required time period, the potential winning entrant and Professional Driver are
