Houston, TX — Hammonds Fuel Additives, Inc. officially announced a sponsorship of Bassmaster Elite Series anglers Bradley Roy and Cliff Crochet to promote Biobor EB, the Ethanol Buster. They also released the details of a contest for fans of the two future stars.
The 2010 Bassmaster Rookie of the Year race went down to the last event where Roy edged out Crochet for the title by just 61 points. Thanks to Biobor EB, this season fans can win prizes by voting for which of the two Elite Series sophomores finish higher in the standings at each event. The winner of the contest will be the fan who correctly guesses the number of gallons of gas used by the winner during each event, including the 3 official practice days.
Crochet was the higher finisher in the first event of 2011, the Sunshine Showdown. He finished in 12th place and used 73 gallons of gas.
Fans will cast their votes at www.biobor.com up until Noon on the first day of each event. Each winner will receive a case of Biobor EB, a pair of Rugged Shark shoes, and a selection of baits from both Taylor Man's Custom Lures and Bill Lewis Lures.
Both anglers are excited about the contest. "2011 is a brand new year and all that, but I do draw some motivation from not winning the Rookie of the Year last year," said Crochet. "Bradley is a great angler and a great competitor so adding this friendly competition will be fun. As far as advice goes for picking a winner at each event... I'd pick me," he said with a grin.
"I have a lot of respect for Cliff. He nearly won an Elite Series event last year (Crochet finished runner-up by 2 ounces at the Pride of Georgia on Clarks Hill), so that is all you really need to know about how good he is," said Roy. "What advice would I have for picking which of us is going to win? I don't see a reason why anything would have changed from last year," said a smiling Roy. Roy was the higher finisher in 5 of the 8 events in 2010.
Hammonds Fuel Additives, Inc. CEO Allan Hohman is excited about these two anglers and what they represent. "Bradley and Cliff are great ambassadors for both their sport and for our company. Our goal is to spread the word that protecting motors from the harmful effects of ethanol is a must. Biobor EB, the Ethanol Buster effectively treats 45% more gasoline than the leading fuel stabilizer on the market. So in addition to eliminating repair bills we also save boaters money on their fuel treatment."
