Chocolate hauler wins sweet prize from Volvo

Mark Butcosk's interest in the new Volvo VT 880 resulted in a trip to the 2006 Daytona 500, courtesy of Volvo Trucks North America's “Race Day Get Away” promotion. According to Butcosk, he wanted more information on Volvo's 625-horsepower flagship, so he logged onto, where he also discovered and entered the Race Day promotion.

“I thought maybe I would win a hat,” he said. Instead, Butcosk, his wife, son, and son-in-law will all receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, local transportation, and tickets to the Daytona 500. Volvo is also giving him $500 spending cash for his trip. A Kreamer PA resident, Butcosk has been a truck driver for 30 years. He drives bulk tankers full of liquid chocolate for Foodliner Inc of Dubuque IA.
