American Isuzu Motors Inc. (AIMI), announced today that the company was awarding a new 2000 Isuzu Amigo SUV to a member of the U.S. Marines. The winner of the new 2000 Amigo will be decided in a tug of war competition on May 19-20. The event is being held in support of the Isuzu Ironman California Triathlon and to thank the U.S. Marines for hosting the triathlon at Camp Pendelton, California.

The first round of eliminations are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. and continue to 2:00 p.m. on Friday. The semi-final and final rounds take place on Saturday beginning at 9:15 a.m. All the units based at Camp Pendelton are invited to compete in the "Isuzu Marine Tug Of War."

The AIMI "Marine Tug Of War Competition" has one final twist after the champion unit pulls their competition across the line. Since AIMI has only one model-year 2000 Isuzu Amigo to donate to this cause, the champion unit must decide between themselves which Marine will drive away in the new Isuzu SUV.

American Isuzu Motors Inc. is the U.S. distributor of Isuzu sport utility vehicles with a 10-year or 120,000 mile Powertrain Limited Warranty; commercial vehicles and diesel engines. For more information call (800) 662-2464 or point your browser to www.isuzu.com on the worldwide web.
