Raybestos Rattlesnake Sweepstakes Winner Receives His Ride

David Cramer takes the keys to his 2014 Raybestos Rattlesnake Toyota Tundra.


McHENRY, Ill. – Not even heavy rain and winds could dampen the festive mood at Automotive Electric Distributors (AED) in Vancouver, Wash., on Friday, May 9 – the day that David Cramer received the keys to his custom 2014 Raybestos Rattlesnake Toyota Tundra.
Cramer, a property manager with Ross Pacific Management in Vancouver, took delivery of his enviable ride in the presence of members of his family – including his mother and father – and a large group of AED staff members.
“Since I won the Raybestos Rattlesnake Tundra at AAPEX last fall, I’ve been very much looking forward to this day,” said Cramer.
The signature-edition truck was built by Brake Parts Inc., manufacturer of Raybestos brake products, and was the grand prize in the brand’s Summer 2013 North American sales promotion. The winning entry was pulled from more than 170,000 entries received.
“We’re very excited to turn over the keys to this one-of-a-kind truck to David today,” said John Davidson, district manager with Brake Parts Inc. Davidson was on hand for the presentation. “It’s always great to reward our customers for their loyalty and we hope that David enjoys the Raybestos Rattlesnake for many years.”
Addictive Desert Designs customized the Raybestos Rattlesnake, which includes custom bumpers, side steps and chase rack. World-renowned tattoo artist, Corey Miller, gave the truck its custom wrap. A rattler with the flair of a Corey Miller tattoo is shown on both sides of the truck, and a signature “Raybestos Flying R” is emblazoned on the hood.  
Thanks to Toyota Racing Development, a Toyota 5.7-liter aluminum i-FORCE DOHC 32 valve V-8 with a tuned TRD Supercharger helps the Raybestos Rattlesnake reach more than 600 hp. It also includes a high-lift off-road suspension and off-road shocks.
Its stopping power comes from the same Raybestos short track racing brake package used by the Joe Gibbs Racing team.
