June 09, 2014

AUGUSTA, Ga. (June 9, 2014)— Andy Schival test drove a Cushman® Hauler™ PRO and won big.

Schival was the winner of the Coca-Cola 600 Vacation Giveaway, sponsored by Cushman. The giveaway selected one winner at random to receive a vacation prize package that included a trip to the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup race May 25 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway during Memorial Day weekend.

Cushman vehicles are manufactured by the E-Z-GO Division of Textron Inc.

Participants in the giveaway entered the contest at several industry trade shows earlier this year, including the PGA Merchandise Show, the Golf Industry Show, and the Club Managers of America Business Expo. Besides entering the giveaway, attendees also were able to sign up to test Cushman’s latest turf utility vehicle, the fully electric Hauler™ PRO, which is powered by a 72-volt AC drivetrain and boasts an industry-leading 50-mile range between charges.

"The contest and demo program enabled our customers to experience the range and power of the Hauler PRO for themselves," said Michael R. Parkhurst, vice president, golf for E-Z-GO. "Just as NASCAR is a performance-based sport, our Cushman utility vehicles are designed to perform to get the job done as quickly and efficiently as possible."

In addition to suite tickets to attend the race, Schival and his wife, Julia, were provided roundtrip airfare to Charlotte and premier hotel accommodations. The trip was highlighted by a garage tour and a private meet-and-greet session with NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick.

"My wife and I were completely blown away by the prize package from Cushman," Schival said. "This was a first-class trip all the way around that won’t soon be forgotten."
