Ian Croxton of Rocklin and employee of Homewood Lumber in Loomis recently won the Win Big with Tyvek Sweepstakes and will travel to the 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup Shelby 427, DuPont Tyvek, the global leader in building envelope protection, and OrePac Building Products announced Tuesday. Croxton received one of five grand prizes by entering online at where more than 2,000 prizes were given away to residential and commercial building professionals during the months of August through October. The sweepstake’s ultimate road trip grand-prize winners chose from attending one of the countries’ top sporting championship events, including the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup, World Series, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Race, the NBA or NCAA championships. “Gary Durham (OrePac representative) called me the day before to see if I would be in the office the next day. I knew that I had won a tube of Tyvek sealant, so I figured that was the reason for his visit. He then sprung it on me that I was the grand-prize winner. I was definitely elated,” Croxton said. “I have chosen the NASCAR Shelby 427 in Las Vegas. I chose this event because it is close to home and I will be able to bring three to four friends. It will be a good time to spend with friends.” Croxton has worked in the building industry for six years as a retail manager and was selected from more than 27,000 contest entrants. The other grand-prize winners were selected from locations across the country including Kansas, Minnesota, Florida and Massachusetts. In addition to the grand prizes, thousands of building industry professionals won instant prizes such as American Express branded gift cards and a variety of DuPont Tyvek Weatherization Systems products.
