2015 MLB All-Star Game

2015 MLB All-Star Game

The MLB All-Star Game is always one of the biggest events in the baseball season, and this year it was in Cincinnati Ohio. Chevrolet was the automotive sponsor, and they were everywhere. From the Chevrolet Silverados in the parade, to the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Camaro on display at the 2015 T-Mobile All-Star FanFest, it was quite difficult to miss out on the Chevy bowtie in Cincinnati.

Chevrolet proposed a unique challenge to CraveOnline blogger John Scott Lewinski: The automaker would give him free tickets to the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, but only if he could get to Cincinnati in time for both the All-Star FanFest and the game itself. Sounds easy, right?

Not when you have to drive from Milwaukee, Wisconsin!

According to Google Maps, it should take five hours and 40 minutes without traffic to travel the 400 miles from Milwaukee to Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Lewinski had to gamble on smooth sailing when he hit the metro areas of Chicago and Indianapolis, not to mention the traffic in Cincinnati made much worse by the All-Star Game.

To sweeten the deal, Chevrolet’s Media Fleet provided him with a bright red Chevrolet Corvette Stingray for the journey. While this car is beautiful, it’s also a magnet for police and their radar guns. Lewinski would have to be careful, but the Corvette offered a couple of tools to help on the trip as well. Its 6.2-liter, V8 engine has an Eco Driving mode that turns off unneeded cylinders while traveling at constant speeds on the highway and helping the Corvette sip fuel.

We’re happy to report that Lewinski made it to the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game! Visit his story on CraveOnline to see the pictures of his trip.
