Hi. I'm Josh. Ford is giving me an F-150 to drive for a week.
I'm trying my best to win FREE GAS for my hometown, Denver!

Welcome to FreeF150.com

Hi, and welcome to my home for the Ford F-150 EcoBoost Challenge. Ford’s social media department is hooking me up with a Ford F-150 2WD pickup truck for a week. It’s a contest, you see.

Ford EcoBoost Challenge Results

Unfortunately I didn’t win the Ford EcoBoost Challenge. But I tried my absolute hardest and performed well. I came in 3rd place overall. But more than that, I was able to donate more than 1800 pounds of food to Denver’s Metro CareRing. Thanks so much to Ford for helping me organize a food drive at […]

Help Ford and me Feed People In Need on Saturday.

Aside from being able to strut my social media chops (with the creation of this website, an obscene amount of tweets, Facebook updates, and other content generation), I was drawn to the Ford F-150 EcoBoost Challenge because part of the contest is about helping the community.

Songs of the Road

So I’m driving this big honking truck around.* I’m also listening to lots of music. I want to build the ultimate Spotify playlist of some of the greatest road/truck/driving songs of all time.

A Trek in a Truck up a Mountain

Today is Monday, and that means the “best average MPG” portion of the #EcoBoostChallenge has started. I’m driving like my grandma from now until Friday to try to win Denver free gas at selected Denver-area Shell Stations on September 3rd. (and don’t forget you can help Denver’s cause by voting daily for Denver – and me – […]
