Econo Lodge & Rodeway Give Fast Cash

Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn brand hotels nationwide are once again teaming with Lowe`s Home Improvement Warehouse, sponsor of professional race car superstar Jimmie Johnson and his #48 racecar, to offer travelers a chance to win $50,000 in cash or “instant win” $25 gift cards redeemable at Lowe`s Home Improvement Warehouse locations nationwide.

Beginning May 21, visitors to www.choicehotels.com may enter the $50,000 “Fast Cash” sweepstakes; no purchase is necessary to register. To win the Lowe`s gift cards, visitors may also play an online “Fast Cash” race game, pitting their racing skills against Jimmie Johnson`s in a fun, interactive “virtual” race.

Information about the promotion is available at more than 850 Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn brand hotels nationwide. The promotion runs through July 31.

“We`re delighted to once again partner with Lowe`s Home Improvement Warehouse, sponsor of one of professional racing`s most exhilarating competitors and a nationwide leader in home improvement retail,” said Tim Shuy, vice president, economy brands for Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE:CHH), franchisor of Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn brand hotels. “Through this promotion, one lucky traveler is going to win $50,000—enough to follow the racecar circuit, buy Team Lowe`s Racing memorabilia and then some!”

The Econo Lodge/Rodeway Inn promotion will be advertised via a national network and spot radio campaign and again featuring the wry humor of Barry Corbin. Additionally, the Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn logos will appear on the Lowes #48 racecar during major races.
