Cleveland – Fans of Lincoln Electric and off-road racing can now race the Lincoln Electric rally truck in the new TROPHYLITE™ Rally App for the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch platforms. The company has partnered with TROPHYLITE and 2XL Games as an official sponsor with a virtual Lincoln Electric rally truck and trackside banners sporting the company’s logo.
The relationship with 2XL Games is unique in that it allows sponsors like Lincoln Electric to offer rewards to players racing that company’s truck. If a user selects to drive the Lincoln-sponsored rally truck, they have a chance to win prizes from Lincoln Electric. Prizes are awarded to the players who reach a specific goal on a given day.
The current reward is a Lincoln Electric t-shirt for the longest jump each day. New prizes and chances to win will be added throughout the year. Notifications are sent to the winning player via email alerting them of the prize they won.
