Three contest winners have been named in this summer’s Royal Purple contests that were run exclusively from the Royal Purple Inc. Facebook Fan Page. Two winners were selected in the Royal Purple “Show It Off at SEMA” contest and one winner was tabbed from Maxfilm “Send Me to SEMA” contest.
Joe Cherry’s “El Nomado”, a 1958 Chevrolet custom phantom car and Shawn Kaufman’s Dodge Challenger R/T “Galvatron,” painted Plum Crazy Purple, will make the trip to this year’s SEMA show as feature vehicles as guests of Royal Purple. The “Show It Off at SEMA” contest received 36 entries overall. The top 10 with the most online votes moved on to final judging. El Nomado was a unanimous choice with Galavtron coming in second in the judges voting.
In addition to credentials to the show and an invitation to the winners’ dinner, Royal Purple will also provide wearables and custom designed brag boards for each vehicle. El Nomado uses Royal Purple motor oil, Max ATF transmission fluid and Max-Gear. Galvatron uses Royal Purple 5W-20 motor oil and Purple Ice radiator coolant additive.
The winner of the Maxfilm “Send Me to SEMA” contest is Tammy Smith of California. Smith was selected at random from over 300 entries and received notification of her win on the day of her wedding anniversary. Smith and her husband Marty will attend this year’s SEMA show and will also receive Royal Purple wearables and will be guests at the winners’ dinner.
