The grand prize entry will appear as part of the new paint job on the Bounty Hunter, one of the monster racing circuit’s most popular trucks. The new paint scheme is scheduled to be introduced in October.

The contest is open to children, seven years old to seventeen years old. Contest rules and entry form may be downloaded at http://www.andyboy.com/docs/AB_WrapIt_contest.pdf. Entries must be received by July 15.

All entrants will receive an autographed Hero Card from Jimmy Creten, driver of The Bounty Hunter, and will be entered to win one of five copies of the Wii video game, Monster Jam: Path of Destruction.
