South Lake Tahoe, Calif. – January 14, 2010 – Three months ago The United States of America
Snowboard Association launched the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Giveaway as a fundraising promotion for the USASA Regional Series.

The results are now in and the winner is Blake Ramsey from the San Gabriel Series in Southern California. Blake’s donation to the USASA entered him into the giveaway and he won a brand new car, living proof that giving has its benefits.

Thanks to Mitsubishi Motors, the official vehicle of the USASA, Blake is now driving his brand new 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Ralliart. Funds raised will support the 32 Regional Series.

On Saturday, January 9th 2010, representatives from Mitsubishi Motors, Mountain High Special Events Manager Bryce Maxwell, and USASA Executive Director Jason Toutolmin presented Blake with the keys to his new ride at Mountain High Ski Resort in sunny Southern California. The presentation took place on stage as part of the USASA San Gabriel Series double Slopestyle event, in front of a cheering crowd before the USASA awards ceremony. Mitsubishi Motors brought two demo vehicles to display, as well as a tent set-up with Mitsubishi representatives handing out shwag bags including vehicle information, Cholula Hot Sauce and other goodies.
