Win a Restored Corvette from Quaker State

Aug 19, 2013

Quaker State has launched its “Defy My Ride” Sweepstakes, a promotion that gives fans the chance to win a 1972 Chevrolet Corvette restored by Hendrick Performance.

The classic Corvette will be restored with input from Dale Earnhardt Jr. to show that proper maintenance powered by Quaker State can help a car 40-plus years in age “defy time,” according to the company.

The Corvette will receive a complete facelift, including an intense detailing of the exterior involving wet-sanding, waxing, polishing and buffing. Upgrades to the vehicle include new BFGoodrich radial tires with Torque Thrust wheels; Wilwood brakes; a state-of-the-art stereo system; and a set of KYB shocks.

“The Defy My Ride Sweepstakes pays tribute to well-aged vehicles and their longevity,” said Gita Gidwani, Quaker State global brand manager. “With the proper care and under-the-hood technology, it is possible for any car to defy time and become a classic. This promotion echoes the message of Quaker State Defy Synthetic Blend Motor Oil, which is made for high-mileage vehicles and is formulated to help you get the most life out of your car’s engine.”

Quaker State fans also have the chance to win more than 20 additional prizes such as a pair of racing gloves signed by Earnhardt; a $200 gift card and autographed Earnhardt hat.

Entries will be collected until Oct. 31 on Quaker State’s website, and winners will be determined through a random drawing on Nov. 5.
