Ferraz Shawmut will also award one grand prize trip to Richard Petty Driving Experience in Daytona, Fla.Three winners have already been named: F. Boyd from Rome, Ga., K. Wuerminghausen from Massillon, Ohio, and C. Hogan from Kansas City, Mo.

"All of our jobs involve electricity, but our professions are protection, and Ferraz Shawmut is committed to supplying the products and knowledge to help our customers become better resources for those they serve."
