NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 1, 2013) – Today, Bridgestone Commercial Solutions kicks off the Drive a Firestone Sweepstakes where one lucky CDL holder will win the sweepstakes grand prize – a special Firestone Edition Class 8 tractor. The sweepstakes is a part of the Firestone Drives America national promotional tour, designed to celebrate an iconic American brand and introduce new Firestone commercial truck tires to fleets and drivers across the country.

The grand prize truck will be on display during the Firestone Drives America tour, which hits the road July 16, stopping at select Minor League Baseball and NCAA College Football games along the way.

    presented with a key, one of which will start the one-of-a-kind Firestone Edition Class
    8 truck. The five lucky finalists will also win an all-expense paid trip for two to the 2014
