For everyone who has turned a wrench, Prestolite Performance is offering the chance to take a turn at stardom.
Prestolite Performance has announced The Search for Mr. Gasket, the company’s first-ever sweepstakes that will give one lucky fan a one-year contract to become Mr. Gasket’s official spokesperson.
“If you spend your weekends working under the hood, we’re looking for you,” said Rob Koller, brand manager for Mr. Gasket. “We’ve found that great ideas often come from weekend racers and everyday performance enthusiasts. We’re looking for that kind of person to become the face of the Mr. Gasket brand. For us, the glitz of Hollywood is no match for the grit that comes from working on an engine.”
And this isn’t simply a ceremonial title. The new Mr. Gasket will receive a one-year contract to star in television and print ads and appear at select Prestolite Performance promotional visits plus $2,500.
Through December 31, participants can enter the sweepstakes by going to www.TheSearchforMrGasket.com uploading a photo that shows their obsession with performance cars and briefly explain why they should be chosen as Mr. Gasket. Prestolite Performance will select 10 finalists and the public will be able to vote on a winner from January 1 -31, 2013, either on www.TheSearchforMrGasket.com or The Search for Mr. Gasket Facebook tab. Site visitors can vote for as many finalists as they like, one (1) time a day.
Based on the results of the popular vote, Prestolite Performance will declare a winner on January 31. The new Mr. Gasket will be announced publicly on or around February 6.
