The Ford 'Knight Rider' Giveaway Sweepstakes

By February 5, 2008

Follow me on:

2008 Knight Rider KITT MustangAs you've probably heard, NBC plans to air the made-for-television movie, Knight Rider, on Sunday, February 17th at 9/8c. This time around KITT will be played by a 2008 Shelby GT500KR Mustang instead of a Pontiac Trans Am; three of them to be exact (KITT Hero, KITT Attack, and KITT Remote).

If that's not enough to get you to watch (because let's be honest, it's going to take a LOT more than that), NBC and Ford are offering an additional incentive. Viewers will have the chance to win one of four new Ford automobiles. The grand-prize winner will receive a 2008 Ford Shelby GT 500KR with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of $79,995. One first-prize recipient will win a Ford Edge Limited AWD (MSRP $32,070); a second-prize winner will drive away with a Ford Fusion V6 SEL AWD (MSRP $24,385), and a third-prize recipient will receive a Ford Focus SES Sedan (MSRP $16,375).

The "Ford 'Knight Rider' Giveaway Sweepstakes" begins at 8 p.m. (ET) on February 17 during an episode of "American Gladiators" (7-9 p.m. ET), continues with the movie's broadcast (9-11 p.m. ET) and concludes the next day, Monday, February 18. At four different, pre-determined intervals during the Knight Rider broadcast - approximately every 30 minutes - viewers will be invited to participate in the sweepstakes by answering a question pertaining to the movie by going online. Contestants will be directed to the website www.nbc.com/knightrider. A correct answer is not required for an entrant to make an entry into the sweepstakes. There is a limit of four entries per person for the entire sweepstakes period.

Those who win the grand prize will drive away with one mean machine. As for the runners up, I imagine they could always trade the ride in for a Mustang.

NBC will usually list winners on their Sweepstakes Winners page. Knight Rider is not yet listed. According to the official rules, to receive a Winners’ List, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: The Ford Knight Rider Giveaway Sweepstakes “Winners”, P.O. Box 6611 Burbank, CA 91510. The rules say all requests must be received by April 18, 2008. As soon as we receive word on the winners, we’ll be sure to post on the site.
