RAYNHAM, Mass., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- During Labor Day weekend, Mastria Auto Group offered its customers a chance to take home a new car and lots of cash. Any customer who purchased and took delivery of a new or pre-owned vehicle during the holiday weekend had a chance to win $5,000 if one of the New England Patriots returned an opening kickoff for a touchdown in the season opener. Thanks to Brandon Tate's second-half kick-off return, 32 Mastria customers pocketed $5,000 each.

"This promotion has been so exciting for everyone in the Mastria community," said Rick Mastria, President of Mastria Auto Group. "We designed this promotion in the hopes that we could give back to our customers and that is exactly what has happened."

The Patriots were up big at halftime leading 24-3 in their season opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. That's when Brandon Tate, the Patriots second year special teams player took the second half kickoff 97-yards for a touchdown, to the delight of 32 Mastria customers.

"We are huge fans of the Patriots, so getting an opening day win combined with giving back $160,000 to the lucky 32 customers that participated in this promotion, we could not be more thrilled," said Mastria.

Mastria Auto Group has given back to the community on a number of occasions but this was one of its largest give backs in the dealership's 25-year history. The prize checks will be awarded at Mastria Auto Group within the next few weeks.
