Mahle Clevite Inc. has named Porter Smith as the winner of the Mahle Clevite 50k Likes Sweepstakes, a contest developed to celebrate the fifty-thousandth Mahle Clevite Facebook fan. Smith correctly answered a series of four questions on the Mahle Aftermarket North America Facebook page and was randomly selected as the grand prize winner of a VIP trip to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week in Las Vegas, NV.
Porter Smith, a mechanical engineer by profession from Farmington, New Mexico, has been involved in racing since he was nine years of age and a fan his entire life. “I have always dreamed of racing professionally, but received my degree in engineering to fall back on if professional racing didn’t work out, but I still haven’t given up,” said Smith. “Every weekend, my wife and I get together with friends to watch the race and cheer on our favorite drivers, continued Smith. “We are absolutely ecstatic that Mahle Clevite provided us with this amazing opportunity to attend NASCAR Champion’s Week in Las Vegas.”
As winner of the Mahle Clevite 50k Sweepstakes contest, Porter Smith will receive a VIP trip for two to Las Vegas, Dec. 4 to Dec. 7, 2013, including coach airfare for two, a three-night hotel stay, a special meet-and-greet with a NASCAR personality, access to NASCAR Victory Lap and NASCAR After the Lap, and two tickets to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards™ and NMPA Myers Brothers Awards Luncheon.
