BASS Fan Wins X-Series/Verado Package in Big Catch Giveaway promotion.

Posted: 8/5/2004

Rex Wilkerson of Auburndale, FL won a Triton/Mercury package valued at approx. $48,000, just for attending the Bassmaster Tour event in Leesburg, FL. His new ride is a 2005 Triton TR21 X-series powered by the new Mercury Verado 250 and is loaded with accessories. As the official boat and motor of BASS, Triton Boats and Mercury Marine teamed-up to create a giveaway promotion that would help increase attendance at the 2004 Bassmaster Tour, Elite 50, and Federation Championship events. The promotion, called the Big Catch Giveaway, qualified 11 finalists (one from each of the previously mentioned events) for a drawing recently held at last week’s Bassmaster Classic. Well, the name drawn at this year’s Charlotte Classic was Rex Wilkerson and even though the program didn’t require the winner to be present, Rex was one of three finalists who were and he won, how fitting.

Congratulations Rex, enjoy your new rig!
