Greenwich, CT - Jun 2, 2009


United Rentals, Inc. (NYSE:URI), the leading equipment rental company in North America, has announced the four winners of its “Consider It Won” Sweepstakes.

Leslie Rue Mandeville of James O. Rue Construction, Palm Desert, Calif.; Dawn Bikin of Citywide Contracting; Phoenix, Ariz.; Carlos Silveira of Tiercon, Stoney Creek, Ont.; and Kevin Nesbit of E.S. Boulos Co., Topsham, Maine, won all-expense-paid trips for two to a championship event for Indy car racing, baseball, football and hockey, respectively.

Mandeville was at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 24 to watch Helio Castroneves win the coveted championship for the third time. She said, “Our company has done business with United Rentals for a long time and the sweepstakes sounded like fun, but I never expected to win! It turned out to be a fabulous, heart-pumping experience, and my husband and I had an opportunity to tour some of the historic sites in the area the day before the race.”

The “Consider It Won” Sweepstakes was launched in March and drew thousands of entrants through the closing date of April 30, 2009. The sweepstakes was open to all qualifying individuals, including contractors, subcontractors, remodelers and facility managers. Winners were selected by random drawing in May.
