Being that the Chevrolet Sonic is “a car for firsts”, chances are that most of its owners are driving a stick shift for the first time. And seeing that Sonics equipped with the manual transmission makes up 20 percent of all Chevy Sonic sales to-date, that’s a large amount of consumers daring enough to row their own gears. And to encourage further growth of manual transmission love, Chevy has assembled a contest.
By visiting the “Sonic Challenge” tab on Chevy Sonic’s Facebook page, participants will have to fill out some information to gain a Campus Live account, followed by a game testing their manual transmission knowledge, watching a video about Sonic ‘firsts’ and driving a stick (brace yourself for an overdose on cheesiness), and then submit a video telling Chevy why they want to drive a stick and “Stay Clutch.”
After all that, Chevy will then select four semi-finalists, to attend the “Stay Clutch” driving school held July 9 at the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City, Mo. Semi-finalists also will receive tickets to attend the Statefarm Home Run Derby and MLB All-Star Game with a guest. The grand prize winner of the competition will receive two tickets to Game One of the MLB World Series. Hopefully it features the Detroit Tigers.
If you plan on entering, you better get moving, because the deadline for entry is June 30.
