David Myers of Southington, Ohio, won a custom-built 2019 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 2 car in the recent Pep Boys and Pennzoil Mustang Giveaway Sweepstakes. The brand-new Mustang, a $1,000 Pep Boys Prepaid Card and more were presented by World Champion Drifter and “Professional Fun-Haver” Vaughn Gittin Jr. at a Pep Boys Cruise-In car event Sunday, Oct. 6, in Matthews, North Carolina. Myers, a 21-year-old serving in the U.S. Army, attended the celebration and receive the grand prizes.
“This has been a completely unbelievable experience from the moment I heard I won until now to receive this amazing Mustang from Pep Boys and Pennzoil, and meet the Formula Drift Champion himself, Vaughn Gittin Jr.,” Myers said.
The 2019 Ford Mustang RTR was designed and customized by Vaughn Gittin Jr. Motorsports and includes a full array of aggressive, modern and powerful upgrades from custom tactical suspension components to exterior elements like custom designed body armor, head-turning exhaust and custom wheels – all track-proven and validated by Formula Drift Champion Gittin Jr. The celebration and the opportunity to meet Gittin Jr. helped attract dozens and dozens of cars to the Pep Boys Cruise-In event and brought the house down with burnouts.
“At Pep Boys, we understand that a car can be so much more than a just a car,” said Dave Dissinger, director of Pep Boys Speed Shops. “The giveaway and our partnerships with Vaughn Gittin Jr., RTR Motorsports and Pennzoil captured the energy and spirit of the automotive industry and extended it to David Myers, a deserving fan who is serving our country.”
