Embrace the Madness.

With three weeks of potential bracket-busting competition ahead, Santander Consumer USA has your ticket to college basketball’s big dance.

We’re taking the court for our annual March Madness contest, and we want you on the team. If you’ve entered before, you know the drill, and, if you haven’t, it’s time to suit up.

Will your favorite team get in? Will the top seeds dominate? Which favorites will go down in early upsets? And who will be this year’s Cinderella story – remember the Wichita State Shockers and Florida Gulf Coast Eagles in 2013 or the Dayton Flyers in 2014?

Make your picks immediately after the Selection Sunday show March 13. You have until 12:15 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 17, to sign up. It’s a great time with a shot at winning some mad prizes.
