We are excited to introduce an opportunity for Facebook users to enter the Carsforsale.com ‘Battle of the Best’ Bracket Showdown. Starting March 13th, people can cast their vote in an exciting 64-car showdown. This single elimination style competition will be hosted on the Carsforsale.com Facebook Page and will include six individual rounds of voting. Vehicles with the most votes in each match-up will advance. Voting will also provide the opportunity to win prizes, including multiple Carsforsale.com prize packs and a grand prize $500 Visa gift card. Regardless if you vote for the winning vehicles or not, every completed voting form is an entry to win the grand prize.
The tournament is broken down into four regions by vehicle type, including: Sedans, Coupes, SUVs/Crossovers and Trucks/Vans. Each match-up is a different round of voting with the winning vehicle advancing, until only one vehicle remains. Once the Bracket Showdown champion is announced, we will also pick the winner for the grand prize from all the submissions received throughout the sweepstakes.
With each round of voting, the field will be cut in half. The start of Round Two will feature the 32 winners; 16 vehicles in round three, 8 vehicles in round four and so on.
Voting in each round will be as follows:
Round 1 – March 13th to March 17th
Round 2 – Mach 18th to March 22nd
Round 3 – March 23rd to March 26th
Round 4 – March 27th to March 30th
Round 5 – March 31st to April 3rd
Round 6 – April 4th to April 7th
Only one submission is allowed per round, but returning to vote in each of the six rounds will increase your chances of winning the grand prize. Vote in three rounds and receive three chances. Vote in all six and you will receive six entries. Winners from each round will be notified via the email provided when voting.
In addition to coming back and voting is each round, people can increase their chances of winning prizes by encouraging friends to vote. Upon completing each round of voting, each person will receive a specific link to provide to friends. You will receive one additional entry for round prizes for each person who successfully votes using your link.
While there was some debate as to which 64 vehicles Carsforsale.com included in the Bracket Showdown, many were decided by our 2013 Most Wanted Vehicles report. This report looked at top vehicle searches on Carsforsale.com throughout all of 2013 and we seeded vehicles within the bracket based on these insights.
Voting in Round One will begin March 13th at 10:00 AM CST and will close on March 17th at 11:59 PM.
