Quaker State Kicks Off The ‘Defy My Ride’ Sweepstakes

Brand gives fans chance to take home 1972 Chevrolet Corvette restored By Hendrick Performance, with input from Dale Earnhardt Jr.

HOUSTON — Quaker State announced the launch of its “Defy My Ride” Sweepstakes, a promotion offering fans the chance to win a 1972 Chevrolet Corvette restored by Hendrick Performance, along 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."

The classic Corvette in question will receive a complete facelift, which will feature an intense detailing of the exterior involving wet sanding, wax, polish and buffing. Upgrades to the 1972 Chevrolet will include new BFGoodrich radial tires with Torque Thrust wheels, Wilwood brakes, a state-of-the-art stereo system and a set of KYB shocks, among other modifications, made for this car with today’s technology.

“The ‘Defy My Ride’ Sweepstakes pays tribute to well-aged vehicles and their longevity. With the proper care and under-the-hood technology, it is possible for any car to defy time and become a classic,” said Gita Gidwani, Quaker State Global Brand Manager. “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.”

While the grand prize of the 1972 Chevrolet Corvette will be presented to one lucky winner, Quaker State fans also have the chance to win more than 20 additional prizes, including a pair of racing gloves signed by Dale Earnhardt Jr., a $200 Shell gift card and an autographed Dale Earnhardt Jr. hat. Winners will be determined through a random drawing to be held on Nov. 5, 2013.

Running through Oct. 31, 2013, hopeful participants can enter the sweepstakes by logging on to www.QuakerState.com* or by scanning the QR Code located on in-store Quaker State materials via smart phone and completing the entry form information for the “Defy My Ride” sweepstakes*.

With an initial purchase of a Quaker State Defy oil change service from Aug. 1 through Oct. 31, 2013, consumers can receive a service certificate for $10 off their next Quaker State Defy oil change through a mail-in rebate at participating locations.

Released in 2011, Quaker State Defy is designed to more effectively meet the changing needs of engines and help higher mileage engines defy time. Featuring a high level of zinc additive that targets high temperature and high-wear surfaces, Quaker State Defy prevents up to 98 percent of future wear to help extend engine life**.
