Tell us Your Favorite Chicago White Sox Fan Story: Win Free Gas



You’re a fan of the Chicago White Sox, tell us why. Is it because they beat the Cubs yet again, to take home the BP Crosstown Cup? And make summer driving season a little financially easier for you. BP, sponsor of the BP Crosstown Cup is here to help.


BP also plans to give its customers a chance to win one of more than 50,000 fan prizes as part of the BP Crosstown Cup instant-win game, which returns to more than 450 gas stations in the Chicagoland area. Customers who fill up with 10 gallons or more of BP gasoline with Invigorate now through August 2, can go inside at participating BP stations to request a scratch-off game card that could be an instant winner of a Cubs or White Sox experience, like the opportunity to throw out the first pitch at a Cubs or White Sox home game, a home entertainment package, or a $10 BP Gift Card while supplies last.

BP launched its sponsorship with both the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox in 2010, coinciding with formation of the BP Crosstown Cup, the first official structure to the teams’ interleague rivalry, symbolized by a namesake trophy. The trophy, which stands more than three feet tall and weighs 15 pounds, has helped raise the stakes of the series by being rewarded to the winner of the six-game head-to-head series each year. In June 2010, the White Sox took home the inaugural trophy by winning the series four games to two. The first three games of the 2011 series kicks-off at U.S. Cellular Field on June 20. The series will conclude with a three-game homestand at Wrigley Field, July 1-3.

And here’s your chance to win $50 in BP Gift cards! Tell us your favorite memory of the Cubs-Sox Crosstown Rivalry.
