DEARBORN, Mar. 10, 2011: There’s nothing like hearing the sound and feeling the power of the Ford Mustang GT – and knowing that car is all yours.

Just ask Eddie Trone, of Folkston, Ga., 2010 winner of the Mustang “5.0 Fever” Sweepstakes.


For the fourth year in a row, Ford Customer Service Division brands Motorcraft, Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center and will give away one of Ford’s hottest vehicles to one lucky winner. This year’s contest kicks off March 10, 2011. The Grand Prize package includes a 2012 Ford Mustang GT (maximum MSRP $29,995) with $5,000 in Ford Racing Performance Parts and Ford Custom Accessories.

Fans age 18 years and older are invited to enter at the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing Experience at select NHRA Full Throttle Series events, online at Mustang 5.0 Fever and Quicklane, or by texting FORDNHRA to 57682 March 10-Nov. 21, 2011. The winner will be chosen by random drawing.

“Ford consumers are passionate about the brand, from purchase to maintenance, and that passion gets passed down,” said Brett Wheatley, Director of Marketing, Ford Customer Service Division. “We see fans from all generations stopping by at our Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing Experience display. We’re proud to see them experience Ford’s latest products, and happy to give one winner a new Ford Mustang GT.”
