“We are honored to partner with Pennzoil and Bring a Trailer to help our Wounded Warriors. We have the freedom in America to enjoy fast, fun cars and trucks because of the service and sacrifices made by our members of the military along with their families.” Said John Hennessey, company Founder and CEO.

Hennessey supports former service members through its long-running Tuner School program. The unique training and education course coaches students to become the next wave of professionals in the automotive performance and racing industry. Since 2008, Tuner School has helped to transform the lives and careers of more than 500 students, including many veterans. Those attending Tuner School have the opportunity to work with Hennessey’s range of high-performance vehicles and the Venom F5 hypercar.

The 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8-powered hypercar is engineered to exceed 300 mph and guaranteed to thrill. Available in Roadster and Coupe form – each with a track-focused ‘Revolution’ variant – with 1,817 bhp, the $2.5+ million hypercar is the world’s most powerful internal combustion production car.

The Venom F5 exclusively uses Shell Fuels and Pennzoil lubricating products to achieve its extreme performance. The competition winner will also get to check out the process behind creating high-performance Pennzoil products during a visit to the Shell Technology Center in Houston.
