Shell to Give Away $10,000 in Gas at Auto Show

HOUSTON -- Shell Oil Products US will give away $10,000 worth of free gas to an attendee at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show, held at McCormick Place Complex in Chicago from Friday, Feb. 9 through Sunday, Feb. 18.

One winner out of 20 finalists from the Shell Oil Products US sponsored sweepstakes will participate in the giveaway at the Shell exhibit booth on Friday, Feb. 16 at 7:00 p.m. The 20 finalists will draw a Shell prepaid gas card, but only one card will activate the gas pump at the booth, signaling that the finalist won $10,000.

Additional Shell-sponsored events are a "Gas Pump Game" that gives attendees the chance to win Shell gift cards valued from $10 to $100. The Shell/Pennzoil No. 29 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series racing car will also be on display. Visitors will receive a free NASCAR t-shirt if they sign up for the Shell Platinum Select MasterCard from Citi Cards.

Shell is also sponsoring the "Official Petroleum Product" and the "Project Cars Exhibit," where Shell will show attendees the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) cars on display. Chicago-area Shell stations are also promoting the auto show through Feb. 17 by offering customers two discounted passes to the show when they purchase a minimum of $10 in gasoline.

"Shell has a long and proud history of offering innovative fuel solutions to the American motoring community. We are pleased to have this opportunity to make it possible for customers to view the most cutting-edge cars available through our sponsorship of the Chicago Auto Show," said Larry Burch, vice president of retail for Shell Oil Products US. "Shell stays in the forefront by providing consumers with new ways to keep them moving and also thanking them for being loyal customers to the Shell brand with events like this."

The 99th occasion of the show encompasses over 1.25 million square feet of exhibitor space, displaying almost 1,000 vehicles such as next generation vehicles, concept cars, simulated road trails, driving machines and vehicle driving courses.
