Tailgaters Compete for Fiesta Bowl Prize


There’s a whole other game going on outside the gates of the football stadium this season. It’s a battle of the tailgates! Frito-Lay and Tostitos brand tortilla chips are running a football season promotion to discover the top tailgaters in America.

The contest is called Beat My Tailgate! Winners receive a VIP tailgating experience for eight people at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Game January 5, 2009, in Glendale, Arizona.

The contest is pretty simple, really. Just upload a photo of your tailgating setup along with a brief description telling why your tailgating ritual should be crowned best in the USA at the contest website, http://www.beatmytailgate.com.

Former NFL star Eddie George heads a team of judges to pick the finalists, who will be scrutinized for their creativity, team pride, theme and presentation of ideas. Online voting will also be used to determine the ultimate winner. The contest runs through November. For details, visit www.beatmytailgate.com.
