name, home address, home telephone number, cell phone number, email address, and the date and time of your entry on the form provided. The registration for the “Meltdown Madness Giveaway” ends March 14, 2014, and all entry forms must be received by such time. If the Giveaway runs long, these dates are subject to a corresponding extension. Any entry form that otherwise fails to comply with these Official Rules will NOT be honored, acknowledged or returned, and the persons submitting such requests will forfeit any rights in the Giveaway. Any Participant that does not provide true and accurate information will forfeit any right in the Giveaway. The purchase, sale, trading, or barter of an entry does not constitute legitimate channels and is expressly prohibited. 4. How to Play.

A. Manner to Play. A Participant must submit the requested information on the entry form provided on the website. In addition to the name, home address, telephone number, cell phone number, and email address, each Participant will be required to determine the exact date and time that any particular vehicle will physically touch the ground. Each participant will only be allowed to submit one entry form on one motor vehicle. The winning date and time will be determined by a sensor inside each vehicle that will stop a timer at an exact time as soon as one of the tires hits the ground. Briggs reserves the right to override the measurement provided by the sensor if it is determined that the sensor may have erred. Briggs also reserves the right to augment the snow piles at any time if it is deemed necessary or desirable in order to protect the motor vehicle or for any other safety concerns. If a Participant has properly guessed the correct date and time, such Participant is the potential winner of the particular motor vehicle, subject to verification of Sponsor; provided, the Participant specifically complies with all requirements contained in these Official Rules. If two or more persons guess the correct date and time for any one particular vehicle, the person who submitted the entry form first will win the particular motor vehicle. See Official Rules for additional requirements and restrictions. B. Prize/Odds/Details. Since each Participant is only allowed to submit one entry form on only one particular motor vehicle, the Giveaway only has one (1) prize available to each Participant. Depending on the number of Participants, Briggs estimates that approximately 20,000 total entry forms will be submitted for any one particular motor vehicle. The odds of winning a particular motor vehicle are based upon the exact date and time any one particular motor vehicle physically touches the ground. DEPENDING ON THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS, THE ODDS OF WINNING ARE APPROXIMATELY 1 IN 20,000. The Participant with the correct date and time will be determined within 30-days after the determination and shall be redeemed at Sponsor’s business address for the corresponding vehicle that Participant registered for. The following are the applicable business addresses for the Briggs “Meltdown Madness Giveaway” which are located at 2600 Auto Lane in Manhattan, Riley County, Kansas, at 3001 South Kansas Avenue in Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas,and at 2101 W. 29th Terrace in Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas, or as Sponsor shall otherwise determine, and only during normal business hours. Participants and entry forms are subject to verification and the Giveaway is not valid in combination with any other offer or discount.
