Jasper man, Allen Kennedy chosen as winner, receives $5,000 of Sunoco UltraTech™ Fuel

JASPER, FL, November 27, 2017 – Sunoco announced today that Jasper resident, Allen Kennedy, has been named one of 14 Grand Prize Winners in its thirteenth annual Sunoco UltraTech™ Free Fuel 5000 Sweepstakes. He was awarded his prize of $5,000 worth of free fuel at a ceremony held in his honor at his local Sunoco station on 2nd Avenue in Jasper.
Allen, 65, has spent the past 30 years driving his Toyota Tacoma to work at the Florida Department of Corrections. On his vehicle, he proudly sports a Sunoco decal – an action he never realized would result in him being spotted at his local station, given a $10 gift card and entered to win the grand prize.
“I visit my local Sunoco station about once a week to fill up my tank and maybe pick up some pizza,” shared Allen. “But when I learned about this sweepstakes, it never crossed my mind that I could be spotted there, let alone win the $5,000 worth of free Sunoco fuel!”
Now that the shock has subsided, Allen is excited to use his prize to celebrate his upcoming retirement with a cross-country road trip with his wife of 31 years. The couple has plans to take their camper out west, spending several months visiting sites like the Grand Canyon and the Red Rock mountains. Allen has already mapped out his course to ensure that he can stop and fill up at Sunoco stations along the journey.
“I’m so grateful to Sunoco for the opportunity,” Allen said. “It still seems very unreal that a guy from Jasper, Florida could beat the odds and win this amazing prize.”
“Allen is a hard worker who has a lot to celebrate,” said Fred McConnell, Director, Fuels Marketing. “We are so happy that through the Sunoco UltraTech™ Free Fuel 5000 Sweepstakes, we’re able to help him and his wife take a trip of a lifetime and truly enjoy where the road takes them.”
