Sept. 27, 2017—The MAHLE “Drive With the Original” promotion for technicians is winding down, concluding this coming Sunday, Oct. 1, at 11:59 p.m. EST.
And to highlight the closing days of the promotion, MAHLE has published the final installment of the YouTube video series featuring the build of the promotion’s Grand Prize: a custom-built Petty’s Garage Ford Mustang.
Qualifying technicians can continue to submit entries for the promotion via the web through Sunday night. Complete information about the “Drive with the Original” promotion, including official rules, terms and conditions, can be found on the web site. Information to participate in the promotion is also available on specially marked MAHLE Original gasket boxes.
Leading up to the conclusion of the promotion, MAHLE has released the final segment of the “Mustang Build” video series featuring television’s Bogi Lateiner, now live on the MAHLE Aftermarket YouTube channel.
The final installment in the MAHLE “Mustang Build” video series shows the vehicle on the dyno, achieving crank horsepower well over the 1,000-HP mark. The video also includes reactions from MAHLE Aftermarket Inc.’s Jon Douglas (president) and Ted Hughes (head of marketing, North America) as they visit Petty’s Garage in Level Cross, N.C., to take delivery of the vehicle from “The King” himself, Richard Petty.
The grand prize MAHLE Ford Mustang will be awarded on Oct. 31, 2017 at the 2017 Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas. Four finalists will be randomly selected from all entries to receive an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas to participate in the special grand prize ceremony. The “Original,” Richard Petty, will be present when the finalists each select a key fob—one of which will unlock the doors of the customized, twin-turbo 1,000 HP Grand Prize MAHLE Ford Mustang from Petty’s Garage.
In addition to the grand prize, over 2,400 instant win prizes are up for grabs, including Richard Petty Driving Experiences, autographed Richard Petty signature Charlie 1 Horse cowboy hats, and autographed #43 die-cast model cars.
