This morning Friday, March 7, Allstate Insurance Company and motorcycle builder Rick Fairless unveiled to the crowds at Daytona Bike Week a new custom creation named “Sweeps”, a re-imagined Victory Vegas 8-Ball. This custom-built motorcycle is part of this year’s grand prize for the Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes and feature interesting design ideas by Rick Fairless. This is the fifth year of the Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes and the first year that a Fairless custom is featured as the grand prize. “When Allstate asked me to build this year’s bike, they asked for one that really fit the image of its riders. I knew I had to push the limits a little with this bike because they insure so many different kinds of folks,” Fairless said. “We ended up with a bike that is really turning some heads. This ain’t a bolt-on custom.”
Fairless is on hand to help debut the new custom machine at the Allstate Rider Protection Zone, which is located at Daytona Speedway. Riders in attendance will have the opportunity to see the bike in person, learn more about how the Allstate Victory Vegas 8-Ball came to be from Fairless himself, enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win the motorcycle, as well as see some of the other custom bikes Allstate owns, including 2 by Arlen Ness and Dave Perewitz.
Participants can enter the Allstate Vegas 8-Ball through February 28, 2015, online at Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes or at the Allstate Rider Protection Zone which visits select rallies across the country (see above). The winner will be announced in March 2015.In addition to winning the motorcycle, Allstate will give the winner a trip for two to Rick Fairless’ Strokers Dallas for a free custom paint job consultation, personalized by Fairless himself.
“We’re confident that the winner of this year’s Allstate Motorcycle Sweepstakes is not only going to love their new ride,” said Pam Hollander, senior director of marketing for Allstate Insurance Company, “but they’re also going to love the whole Allstate experience.” Following today’s unveiling, the Allstate Victory Vegas 8-Ball, along with Allstate’s other custom creations, will be on display in 2014 at the Allstate Rider Protection Zone at the following motorcycle rallies:
