A Chance To Make KVD’s Last Ride, Your New Ride

Enter the VanDam Victory Lap sweepstakes to win Kevin VanDam’s tournament-used boat.

Racine, WI – To celebrate his final victory lap, Humminbird and Minn Kota are teaming up with bass fishing legend Kevin VanDam to give away a boat. But, not just any boat. KVD’s boat. The exact boat he used during his last professional tournament season on the Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour – a true piece of bass fishing history.

Many anglers today grew up idolizing KVD and watching him compete throughout his career. The impact he leaves behind will resonate throughout the industry for years to come, as he inspired generations of anglers to pursue their dreams in bass fishing. While this isn’t the last we’ll see of KVD, he’s making a final impact as he exits professional tournaments by blessing someone with a new ride, fully equipped with all the bells and whistles, courtesy of Humminbird and Minn Kota.

The VanDam Victory Lap Sweepstakes will run from March 14 to June 2. This sweepstakes, offered by Humminbird and Minn Kota, is supported by Kevin’s long-time marketing partners: Bass Pro Shops, Nitro Boats, Lew’s, and Strike King. The opportunity to win big here is an understatement.

“I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be in the position I am today, competing in my final REDCREST event,” said VanDam. “There’s a lot running through my mind as I approach this milestone. Giving away my last competition boat is bittersweet, and while it marks the end of my tournament fishing career, it offers someone else a chance to enjoy a new ride with all the latest and greatest gear for their fishing adventures. I am deeply grateful to Humminbird, Minn Kota, Bass Pro Shops, Nitro Boats, Lew’s, and Strike King for making this possible.”

“In celebrating Kevin VanDam’s remarkable career and his final victory lap at the Major League Fishing REDCREST next week, Humminbird and Minn Kota are honored to give away his iconic boat, a piece of bass fishing history,” said Jeff Kolodzinski, Brand Manager of Fishing at Humminbird and Minn Kota. “We are immensely proud to have supported Kevin throughout his entire career and are thrilled to continue that support by providing one lucky angler with a fully equipped, state-of-the-art fishing vessel.
