MONTGOMERY, Ala. — More than 88,000 participants logged into Bassmaster.com and registered a vote for their favorite angler in the Toyota Tundra Fan Favorite Contest. Not surprisingly, much like this week's Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year competition, Skeet Reese and Kevin VanDam were at the very top of the ledger.
VanDam, in typical fashion, came through, scoring 36 percent of the vote and earning the coveted honor while Reese finished close behind in second. The sweepstake ran from June 29 — July 25 and fans were able to watch videos of the 12 Bassmaster Elite Series Postseason qualifying pros and vote on their favorite.
While the competition was a good chance to do a service for their favorite pro, fans were also able to win a bevy of prices including a Bass Pro Shops Gift Card and Berkley baits. The grand prize winner will win a Nitro boat package and will be determined after the necessary paperwork is completed.
"I'm glad that my fans came out in droves to register a vote for me," said VanDam. "Everything I accomplish is for the fans and I'm tickled to death to receive this honor."
