The nominee with the second highest score will be deemed the First Prize winner and will receive free Entenmann's Donuts for a year in addition to a race-used, Entenmann's-autographed driver fire suit. The remaining finalists and nominators of each of the five finalists will all receive free Entenmann's Donuts for a year.

To make the "EntenMAN of the Year" Father's Day Contest even sweeter, Entenmann's is proud to announce a continued partnership with NASCAR Cup Series team JTG Daugherty Racing and driver Ryan Preece.

"I'm a huge fan of Entenmann's and I have to say I'm also a huge fan of the prize pack to the big race in February for the contest winner," said Preece. "My dad is my hero, and the 'EntenMAN of the Year' Father's Day Contest is a great way to honor your dad or father figure."
