Read our Q&A to see how Bill will beat the heat.
Q: Congrats Bill! What kind of work do you do?
Thank you. I recently retired after 34 years of service for a county government.
Q: Why are you excited you won the sweepstakes?
My father worked almost his entire life for and retired from Caterpillar, and he was also a lifelong race fan. I grew up going to the Caterpillar Power Parades and hearing day in and day out about the quality and pride that went into Caterpillar products, as well as learning lessons like hard work.
Also, the two hottest weeks in Central Illinois were the last two weeks of July when Caterpillar historically closed their plants for summer vacation, and our family headed out west to our national parks to cool off!
When I ran across the Cat Racing “Beat the Heat Sweepstakes,” it brought back a lot of great memories, and winning makes it that much more special.
