Carl Smith of Ozark, Mo., was the grand-prize winner of Klein Tools’ 2006 “Race and Win” promotion.

Smith received four tickets to any 2007 IndyCar race and a $1,000 American Express gift card.

The Klein Tools contest was tied into the company’s sponsorship of Andretti Green Racing. The contest randomly selected participants among those who registered at the company’s Web site.

Margaret Herrin of Signal Mountain, Tenn., was first-place winner. She received two tickets to any 2007 IndyCar race and a $500 American Express gift card.

Other winners included Nancy Pipp of New Ipswich, N.H., who won $1,000 worth of Klein Tools products; and Orville Miles of Harts, W.Va., who won $500 worth of products from Klein Tools.

In addition, the contest randomly awarded weekly prizes of Klein Tools racing jackets valued at $200, and daily prizes of Klein Tools racing shirts.

“The third year of our ‘Race and Win’ contest drew 50 percent more participants than last year,” said Abby Ceppos, senior marketing manager for Klein Tools. “Klein Tools’ successful contest reflects its continued achievements with the Klein Tools-sponsored Andretti Green Racing team.”
