Daniel Luscomb of Garland, Texas, won the incredible grand prize — a trip for two to Brazil, the location where the movie was filmed. Jennifer Brown of Cortland, Ohio, took home a world-famous custom Fast Five Gibson guitar, and Christa Lewis of Clayton, N.C.; Loc Do of Garden Grove, Calif.; and Theodore Becker of Dixon, Ill.; were the lucky recipients of four brand-new General tires.

The movie, which was number one at the box office opening week and saw more than $500 million in worldwide sales, was the first of the series to be shown on the larger-than-life IMAX screen. The star-studded cast — Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson — has a serious need for speed, and they find it in this incredibly fast-paced, intense film.
