SUMMIT MEDIA Country WQNU (Q 103.1)/LOUISVILLE, KY spent the AFTERNOON of SATURDAY, JANUARY 30th with listeners who were praying to run out of gas. The "WQNU Q103.1 #QFEST2015 BILL COLLINS FORD F-150 GIVE-AWAY" began back in OCTOBER and culminated at the BILL COLLINS FORD lot with listener WYNEMA BARTON walking away with the new truck. BARTON, the mother of two small children, drove to the contest site in a van without a working heater.
Listeners were invited to text in for a chance to participate in the event, and those selected took turn driving the F-150 around a pre-determined course until it literally ran out of gas. The driver at the time of the stall would officially walk away with the grand prize. "It was a suspenseful moment," WQNU OM/afternoon host SHANE COLLINS told ALL ACCESS. "The car starts to shake, and then we all start to yell. It was a blast." COLLINS was in the cab of the truck with BARTON as she screamed, "WE'RE OUTTA GAS!"
