The grand prize of Volvo Trucks North America’s “Discover the Treasure” sweepstakes is a trip for two to the Bahamas and $10,000.

Walt Disney Pictures’ upcoming movie, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” in theaters July 7, inspired the sweepstakes. Volvo Trucks North America also is publicizing the new movie as a way to continue the excitement created by the launch of Volvo’s flagship, the Volvo VT 880.

In addition to the grand prize, Volvo Trucks North America is offering daily prizes of Volvo or movie-related merchandise, including Volvo driver’s jackets, “Pirates of the Caribbean”-themed prize chests with movie passes and DVDs, watches and more.

“Discover the Treasure” also builds upon the ongoing excitement created by the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race: Disney is sponsoring one of the sailboats, “The Black Pearl,” in the race, a six-month adventure on the oceans of the world involving high-tech racing yachts, extreme conditions and challenges for the crews involved.

“Discover the Treasure” is open to holders of commercial driver’s licenses, and no purchase is necessary. Truck drivers can register to win online at or by calling 866-577-7493. Drivers also can register to win at the Volvo booth at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky., March 23-25. The promotion ends April 16. Entrants must be legal U.S. residents.
