Super 8 Hotel Brand Offers Fans Chance at Ultimate Road Trip

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Mar 27, 2012) - The Super 8® hotel brand is giving racing fans across the country the chance to drive into the winners circle with the Super 8 Road Trip Challenge, an instant win game and sweepstakes offering weekly and monthly race-themed prizes as well as a grand prize of the Ultimate Super 8 Road Trip package.

Through November 18, 2012, Wyndham Rewards members in the U.S. who visit www.pettysgarage.com, the official home of Super 8 racing, can play the Super 8 Road Trip Challenge Instant-Win Game. The game challenges players to "drive" around the country, using their computer and mouse, answering as many trivia questions as they can before time runs out. At the game's conclusion, players find out if they've won an instant prize and receive an entry into the sweepstakes.

Fans can play the instant win game once daily and have the option of entering the sweepstakes without playing the game. Full terms and conditions are available at www.pettysgarage.com.
