Fan drives home in style in Ford F-150

Posted Dec 20, 2015

Tom Kase was given the keys to a 2015 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew before the Steelers-Broncos game.


Tom Kase was checking out his fantasy sports team, when he was on the Steelers website and he saw the chance to win a 2015 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew.

The sports fan who lives in State College, Pa., figured why not give it a try. Little did he know a few months later he would get a call telling him he won the truck, completely wrapped in Steelers colors and logos, courtesy of the contest run by the Neighborhood Ford Store and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“I am an old time fan,” said Kase. “I watched them when they were winning all of their Super Bowls in the Terry Bradshaw and Rocky Bleier days.

“It was pretty unbelievable when I found out I won. I thought at first it was a sales call. And then they said let me put you on speaker phone because I am in a board meeting. My co-worker was listening and he couldn’t believe it.”

Kase received the new truck prior to kickoff of the Steelers-Broncos game at Heinz Field, an exciting moment for him and those from the Neighborhood Ford Store.

“On behalf of the 81 Ford dealers who make up Neighborhood Ford Store, I was very pleased to present Tom the keys to this special 2015 Ford F-150, the Official Truck of the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said Joseph Thurby, the Chairman of the Neighborhood Ford Store. “This has been a really exciting Toughest Truck Toughest Team contest. There were tens of thousands of eligible entries to win this special truck from all over Steelers Nation.”
