After two grueling weeks of wrench-slinging, weld-laying, and a little bit of beer-drinking, the 10-day-long build portion of the Horsepower Wars $10K Drag Shootout is in the books, and while we can’t share with you yet just how it all went down, if you tuned in to the debut episode last week, then you’ve got a pretty good taste of what’s to come as we progress toward the big race at Summit Motorsports Park in Ohio next month. Let us tell you, it was a ball, and we think — and certainly hope — you’ll enjoy the $10K Drag Shootout as much we did.
If you weren’t among the members of the four teams selected to take part in this one-of-a-kind build-off, there’s still a chance for you to get involved — and win!
Today we’re launching the Horsepower Wars $10K Drag Shootout Giveaway — an eight-week sweepstakes coinciding with the high-octane video series that will culminate with one lucky viewer driving away in their choice of one of the three losing cars — this is truly a winner-take-all deal for the race teams (the $10K Drag Shootout awards $10,000 and the car to the winning team of the drag race).
In addition to the grand prize, there are plenty of opportunities to win, as we’ve partnered with a number of the industry’s biggest players to give away a different prize each week — from shocks to a lightweight battery and even a complete ignition system. And it can be yours!
Entering is simple: visit www.horsepowerwars.com/giveaway and enter your information (first and last name, e-mail address, phone number, and your address). You’ll also be prompted to choose the car of your liking, should you win the grand prize. You may also enter in-person at the Shakedown at the Summit in Norwalk, Ohio, where the $10K Drag Shootout will be contested the weekend of September 14-16.
The weekly prizes include:
Week 1: Royal Purple Prize Pack
Week 2: QA1 Adjustable Rear Shocks
Week 3: E3 Ignition System, Distributor, and Coil
Week 4: DynaBatt Lightweight Battery
Week 5: T-Shirt Mega Prize Pack
Week 6: TCI Outlaw Shifter
Week 7: COMP Cams Custom Camshaft
Week 8: The Grand Prize (a $10K Drag Shootout Drag Car)
The vehicle choices include The Dream Team’s Dream Machine turbo LS-powered Mustang, Team Boddie/Dow Brothers’ G-Boddie big-block nitrous Buick Regal, Team Stinky Pinky’s Dr. Rod Knocker blown Big-block Camaro, and Team Bigun’s Beer Money turbocharged, nitrous-assisted LS-powered Ford Mustang.
The giveaway is limited to one entry per person, however, one can earn up to four additional entries by sharing the giveaway on Facebook, Email, and Twitter, and by signing up for the Horsepower Wars newsletter.
The best part: no purchase is necessary to enter or to win – we promise! The giveaway opens August 16 and closes at midnight on October 13, 2018. So head on over to www.horsepowerwars.com/giveaway and get yourself entered to win — you could drive away in your very own racing machine, assembled by some of the best in the business!
