Buffalo Man Wins Pickup Truck At "Taste Of Country!"

June 5, 2011 Updated Oct 16, 2013 at 4:15 AM EDT

BUFFALO, NY (release) Friday, John E. Domres, Jr. of Buffalo beat a one in 12 chance to drive away in a brand-new 2011 Ford F-150 pickup truck with EcoBoost™, courtesy of the Western New York Ford Dealers.

At the WYRK NAPA Auto Parts Taste of Country, a dozen contestants dressed in exclusive Ford-branded cowboy hats and t-shirts anxiously stood on Coca-Cola Field hoping that WYRK's Clay Moden and Dale Mussen would not call their names. A reverse-style lottery eliminated contestants when their names were announced, leaving only Mr. Domres and one other contestant left standing. Each then received a key to the truck. Both pressed the alarm button on their key and it was Mr. Domres who won the showdown as the alarm sounded on the red candy-colored grand prize.

“It doesn’t get any better than this,” said Domres. “We’re a one car family and now we couldn’t be happier. Thanks to the Western New York Ford Dealers, I’m planning on using this truck hard.”

Throughout the month of May, WYRK radio qualified listeners and announced three finalists every Friday to participate in the grand prize giveaway for a chance to win a 2011 Ford F-150 with EcoBoost™, the official truck of the WYRK Taste of Country. WYRK's Clay Moden and Dale Mussen were on site to announce the winner, along with Frank Downing of the Western New York Ford Dealers.

“There’s not much that goes together better than country music and the All-American pickup truck,” said Downing. “Ford’s F-Series trucks have been the best-selling trucks for 34 years in the U.S.… we’re proud to call F-150 the official truck of Taste of Country.”
