Gateway Toyota’s “Kick for the Win” promotion concluded Friday night with a solid attempt by Bruce Gmahle of Point Pleasant to drive away in a 2016 Toyota Tundra 4x4 Double Cab. Bruce was one of 7 weekly winners at high school football games this fall as part of the contest sponsored by Gateway Toyota of Toms River in partnership with 105.7 The Hawk and the Shore Sports Network.

He was then randomly selected Friday night as THE final contestant and at halftime of the Toms River South at Toms River North game had one chance to kick a 40-yard field goal and drive away in the brand new Tundra.

With Gateway Toyota General Manager Rick Cardwell and Sales Manager Mario Markou on the field and ready to hand Bruce the keys he gave it a good boot but came up short. Bruce had already won a $105 gift card from the auto dealership and picked up a prize package that included several restaurant gift certificates, Toyota swag and four tickets to this week’s Indiana-Rutgers football game.

Good job Bruce and thanks for being a great sport. Gateway Toyota thanks all of those who signed up during “Kick for the Win” and Rick and Mario invite you to stop by and see them when you’re in the market for a new or used vehicle.
