The four finalists are:

- Bill Zeromski of Bill Z.’s Auto & Truck, Harshaw, Wis.
“We’re happy to announce these four finalists who will have a chance to win this spectacular Dodge Challenger built by Petty’s Garage,” Jon Douglas, president of MAHLE Aftermarket North America, said. “My heart raced when I first cranked this beast up to take it for its inaugural test drive! One of these finalists is going to get a very special car.
“I would also like to express my sincere appreciation on behalf of MAHLE Aftermarket to the thousands of technicians around the country that participated in the promotion, and more importantly, for trusting MAHLE components in the work they perform.”
The four finalists were randomly selected from the entries received and have been awarded a trip to Las Vegas to participate in the special grand prize ceremony on Nov. 5.
