LUCKY FAN WINS THE TRICKED-OUT CASTROL EDGE MUSTANG GT AT THE AUTO CLUB NHRA FINALS
POMONA, CA (November 10, 2013) – Castrol awarded a tricked-out 2013 Ford Mustang GT to Kevin Turner from Wichita, Kansas at this weekend’s NHRA finals at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, CA. This yearlong promotion, kicked off at the 2013 NHRA Winternationals, enabled fans to win this one-of-a-kind Mustang GT by registering online at the Castrol USA Facebook page and at the “Win with Force Castrol Midway Display” throughout the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
Three lucky finalists were flown out to the Auto Club NHRA Finals as guests of Castrol. As part of the promotion, they were also treated to a VIP tour of the John Force Racing shop in Yorba Linda, CA and got to have dinner with all the Team Castrol/JFR NHRA drivers.
“It was great to see Kevin win this Mustang hot rod. We had dinner on Thursday night and I know they have had a great weekend thanks to Castrol. I want to thank all the sponsors for making this Win with Force contest happen from Ford Racing, Goodyear, Weld Racing and BrandSource. This contest runs all year just like JFR, and we love seeing all the fans signing up to win prizes at every race,” said John Force, 16-time Mello Yello NHRA Funny Car champion.
