Greg Meckley from Meckley Parts and Service in Melbourne, Iowa, has won a 2015 pickup truck of his choice as the first of four grand prize winners in the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Inc.’s “Big Game Tailgate Party” sweepstakes. Meckley is a loyal customer of Alliance member The Merrill Co. and its Marshalltown Arnold Motor Supply Store.
“I couldn’t believe it,” said Meckley upon learning he had won, “I never win anything.” He plans to equip and use the new truck as a tow vehicle to support his business.
Winners were allowed to select the make and model of truck from any manufacturer of full-sized pickups. Meckley chose a Dodge Ram 1500.
Meckley’s name was drawn from over 150,000 entries in the “Big Game Tailgate Party” sweepstakes. In addition to the pickup truck winners, over 100 other sweepstakes winners are attending the Big Game Tailgate Party in Glendale, Ariz. The private tailgate party starts the morning of the game at a clubhouse just a short walk to the University Of Phoenix/Glendale Stadium. There will be food, beverages, fun, games and football celebrities.
After the game, one attendee will win the fourth truck to be given away by the Alliance.
