Entenmann’s Donuts is honoring fathers and father figures who have made an impact with the “EntenMAN of the Year” Father’s Day Contest. From May 10 through June 21, fans can nominate a deserving father figure (male or female) to receive the “EntenMAN of the Year” title in addition to other prizes, including free Entenmann’s Donuts for a year and a VIP all-expenses-paid Daytona Race Trip package.
Those interested in making a nomination can fill out an entry form and provide a short response describing why they believe their nominee deserves the title at the contest website. Five finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges to move on to the Voting Phase. Each finalist (whether the nominee or nominator) will be asked to submit an original short video describing why they deserve the title, and fans will be called on to help vote for their favorite candidate between July 26-30.
Announced in August, the winner will receive the Grand Prize, which includes free Entenmann’s Donuts for a year and a VIP all-expenses-paid Race Trip package to attend races in Daytona, Florida, scheduled to take place in February 2022.
The Race Trip package includes:
- Four (4) Pre-Race Pit Passes, Cup Grandstand Tickets, Xfinity Grandstand Tickets, and Truck Series Grandstand Tickets
- Roundtrip Airline Flights for the Grand Prize Winner and three (3) guests
- Five (5) Nights Hotel Stay for two (2) rooms
- $1,000 Visa Gift Card, which may be used for trip expenses
- Nominee's name will replace the driver's name above the door of the #37 racecar for the race in Michigan scheduled to take place on August 22, 2021
The nominee with the second highest score will be deemed the First Prize winner and will receive free Entenmann’s Donuts for a year in addition to a race-used, Entenmann’s-autographed driver fire suit. The remaining finalists and nominators of each of the five finalists will all receive free Entenmann’s Donuts for a year.
“We can’t think of a sweeter way to celebrate Father’s Day than by helping our fans honor the dads and father figures, male or female, that have helped inspire them,” says Jason Amar, director of marketing at Entenmann’s. "At Entenmann’s, we want to recognize all types of exemplary father figures that have made a positive impact, and we’re excited to hear all of the amazing stories.”
