Jimmy Fallon Announces Ford Derby Day Sweepstakes: Video

Ford has been an official sponsor of the iconic Kentucky Derby for many years now, which makes perfect sense given the fact that the automaker operates two assembly plants in that state – with another currently under construction. However, Ford’s Garage – a rapidly expanding restaurant chain officially licensed by The Blue Oval – has also supported the Kentucky Derby in the past, hosting official watch parties for most famous horse race in history, a tradition that’s set to continue in 2024 as well. Now, comedian, Tonight Show host, and longtime Blue Oval fan Jimmy Fallon has announced yet another FoMoCo Kentucky Derby tie-in – the Ford Derby Day Sweepstakes.

The Ford Derby Day Sweepstakes is something of a play on the automaker’s new ad campaign – dubbed “Freedom of Choice” – which touts its diverse lineup full of ICE, hybrid, and all-electric offerings. In fact, it gives lucky fans the chance to take home one of three vehicles – a 2024 Ford Bronco Badlands, 2024 Ford F-150 Platinum PowerBoost Hybrid, or a 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Those interested in participating in the Ford Derby Day Sweepstakes can do so by heading over here and creating an NBC Universal profile, if they don’t already have one. From there, they simply enter in some personal information, though entries are limited to one per person. Entries are open now through May 5th, at which point the contest will end and a winner will be chosen.

That lucky person will be announced on or around May 13th, after they’re selected via a random drawing. From there, the winner will be able to choose which of the three aforementioned Blue Oval models they want to take home, though they’ll be responsible for things like taxes, registration, and title fees, at least.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Need any set of wheels badly! My 2004 Ford Explorer inspection is up at the end of this month May 2024. It needs 2 rear wheel bearings, at times I must jump start it with the Halo jump starter my wife got for me from QVC. I always need to use it & was told its not the battery. Also the ceiling lining along the top of windshield is hanging down, so I keep the sun visors down & pushed back to keep it from hanging while driving. PLEASE HELP & consider me for a new set of wheels! Retired & very modest, low income. Turning 70 soon! BLESSINGS to all of us!🙏😇
