"We are excited to tap into the spirit of college hockey fans and expose them to Pontiac and GMC vehicles that represent their enthusiasm for sports and their active lifestyles," said Sam Slaughter, President of the Tri-County GMC Dealers Association.
"Being involved with the CCHA aligns with our strategy of reaching consumers who appreciate professional grade, quality products that compete at the highest levels." In addition to the two vehicles, fans at the 2006 CCHA Championship will have the opportunity to win a number of other prizes, including Apple Ipod Shuffle 1GBs, Casio hand-held televisions, Coby DVD recorder/players, Panasonic DVD players and Sony CD/radio cassette stereo systems, as well as full sets of hockey equipment courtesy of RBK.
