American Muscle To Give Away Track-Ready Mustang, F-150 Raptor, and Aluminum Trailer

American Muscle To Give Away Track-Ready Mustang, F-150 Raptor, and Aluminum Trailer

Aftermarket parts retailer goes big with give-away

Ford Mustang and F-150 enthusiasts likely know American Muscle. It’s a huge aftermarket parts supplier with add-on parts ranging from cosmetic bits to full crate engines ready for a project car. Well, the retailer is throwing a huge give-away with one lucky winner taking home a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, an 850-horsepower Mustang, and an aluminum race trailer stocked full of tools and race tires!

At the heart of the package is the highly tuned Mustang. This current-gen car has a Whipple supercharger sitting on its modified 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 that makes 850 horsepower at the crank and just over 725 horsepower at the rear wheels. It comes painted in a custom Tangerine Orange paint with a unique styling package. It rides on upgraded wheels and tires that can be swapped out for the drag slicks and skinnies found on the trailer. All told, this one-off Mustang has more than $30,000 worth of aftermarket parts bolted on.

Towing duties are given to a 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCab. It comes untouched from the factory in Blue Flame paint with the optional Black Graphics Package. American Muscle didn’t have to do anything to the Raptor’s 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 since it makes an impressive 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. The 35-inch-tall BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires and 10-spoke wheels reamain. The Raptor’s 6,000-pound towing capacity should be more than enough to pull the Mustang and aluminum trailer to the track.

Speaking of the trailer, it comes equipped with drag radials for the Mustang’s rear axle and skinnies for the front. It also has a full assortment of tools a race team might need in the pits.

This is perhaps the most comprehensive give-away package we’ve ever seen, so be sure to enter to win. You can enter weekly until November 11, 2016. The winner will be announced on November 25.

The Race of Gentlemen: Craftsman Sponsoring All-Female Racing Team

The Race of Gentlemen: Craftsman Sponsoring All-Female Racing Team

The Race of Gentlemen might not be a racing event you’ve heard about given its young age, but it certainly doesn’t lack history. Taking place on the sands of Wildwood, New Jersey, folks come from across the country to compete in a drag race in custom-built racecars and motorcycles that date back to the first half of the 20th century.

Established in 2012 by the Oilers Car Club – a group steeped in just as much history – the race features cars no newer than 1935 and motorcycles no newer than 1948. Even the parts allowed on competing cars are capped at 1953, giving the growing event a very eclectic and period-correct feel. Think of it like a modern day version of a Bonneville Salt Flat race.

Despite the modern times, no woman has ever competed in a TROG race – until now. Set to race in this October is gearhead Jessi Combs. Her records speak volumes about her mindset and passion in the automotive world. She’s the fastest woman recorded on four wheels, accomplished TV show host, and graduate of WyoTech’s collision and Refinishing Core Program. Jessi will lead an all-women’s team sponsored by Craftsman at this year’s TROG. Their vehicle of choice is a Ford Model T that takes inspiration from the famed Ford 999 racer.

Best of all, Craftsman giving away two tickets for TROG, including travel and accommodations, for this year’s event taking place October 2-4, 2015. The winner and his friend will get a ride in the Craftsman racer, along with time in the pits with Jessi and the Craftsman Crew, including dinner and a professional photo for posterity. In order to win, you’ve got to join the Craftsman Club (here) where members can enter daily to win (here).

Here's Your Chance To Win A Honda Civic Type R

Here’s Your Chance To Win A Honda Civic Type R

Honda recently announced that U.K. customers have swooped up every available 2016 Honda Civic Type R in the country and it is all sold out until next February, which is a bit of a downer for those hot-hatch fans left waiting around for new models to be built. However, it appears as though the automaker managed to stash a single Type R fresh off the assembly line, and now, it’ll give it away to whichever Brit that manages the fastest lap in a simulated run around the Nurburgring. 

It’s called the “King of the Hell” competition, and soon virtual pilots will be invited to tackle the notorious German race circuit via “state-of-the-art training simulators.” 

Details are a bit sparse, but it appears as though participants can get in on the action by showing up at a Type R roadshow at one of 15 designated locations scattered around the U.K. between July 17th and November 1st. There, they will set a qualifying lap in an “X-box race simulator.” Once qualified, the participant can set multiple lap times in the “Type R simulator,” with the quickest time counting towards the competition.

Winner takes all, which means a gratis 12-month loan of a brand new Civic Type R. 

Honda made headlines earlier this year when it announced that its new turbo rocket had managed to set a time around the ‘Ring in 7:50.63, making it essentially the fastest FWD hatchback on Earth.

Real Racing 3 - Le Mans: Pursuit of Victory Gameplay Trailer: Video

In anticipation of this year’s running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, EA Games and Firemonkeys Studios are releasing a new update for the free-to-play racing game Real Racing 3. Players are now offered the opportunity to park three of the latest prototype racers in their virtual garage, and they won’t even need to dish out their hard-earned (or bought) in-game currency to do so.

It’s called the Pursuit of Victory quest, and this is how it works: from now until the running of the actual 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 14th, players can take up the challenge by racing one of the three available LM P1 vehicles (the Nissan GT-R LM, the Porsche 919 Hybrid, and the Audi R18 e-tron quattro) in a special event in the game. Complete the challenge, and you get to keep the car, no micro-transaction necessary. Complete the challenge again in the remaining two racers, and you get to keep them too.

There will also be a special time trails competition with additional prizes up for grabs.

Adding to the Le Mans hype is a recreation of the 8.47-mile Circuit de la Sarthe, which has been rendered with as much detail as possible.

You can download Real Racing 3 onto a variety of mobile platforms, including iOS, Android, Nvidia Shield, and Blackberry 10.

Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes Offers You the Chance to Win a Trip in a 2015 Mustang

Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes Offers You the Chance to Win a Trip in a 2015 Mustang

It’s not quite the same as winning a Mustang, but Ford Motor Credit Company is offering folks the opportunity to take a long road trip in the 2015 Mustang in its Ford Credit Dream Drive Sweepstakes. On top of that, the winner will also get a nice wad of cash for the trip.

In this giveaway, Ford Motor Credit is offering one Canadian and one American the opportunity to pilot the Mustang along their predetermined route of choice. The winners can choose from six famous routes, including “Route 66” from Arizona to Las Vegas, “Going-to-the-Sun” Road from Glacier National Park to Flathead, Montana, “Pacific Coast Highway” from Monterey to Laguna Beach, California, “Great River Road” from Memphis, Tennessee to New Orleans, Louisiana, “Overseas Highway” from Miami to the Florida Keys, and “Trans-Canada Highway” from Kelowna, British Columbia, to Calgary, Alberta.

Along with getting to whip the Mustang along one of these awesome routes, Ford Motor Credit will also give the winners of the four-day, three-night road trip round-trip airfare and free lodging for you and a guest, a $750 gas card, a $1,500 gift card, a camera, and other "surprises along the way." The winners also get the opportunity to tailor the trip to their liking, like scheduling a tour at one of the destinations.

If you’re interested, you U.S.-based folks can enter at FordCreditDreamDrive.com and Canadians can enter here.
But hurry. The entry deadline is June 8th.

There is no mention of what 2015 Ford Mustang each winner will pilot, but I would assume that Fordwould put them in either the new Ecoboost model or the range-topping GT. It would be quite the buzzkill to have to pilot around the V-6-powered model.

Here's Your Chance to Win a 2015 Mustang GT Designed by Chip Foose

Here’s Your Chance to Win a 2015 Mustang GT Designed by Chip Foose

Do you want an 800-horsepower 2015 Ford Mustang by MMD and Chip Foose? Here’s your chance, as American Muscle is giving one away. To enter, just click here and fill out the entry form by August 3rd, 2015.

This MMD- and Foose-designed `Stang has all the goodies you need to make for one hell of a ride. On the outside, it has a front chin spoiler, a hood scoop, rocker panels, quarter-window louvers, a rear spoiler, and side scoops from MMD by Foose. Rolling stock and custom stripes are both provided by Foose.

Inside the cabin, there are custom doorsill plates and headrests created custom by MMD by Foose.

But the engine is where all the real excitement happens, as this Mustang GT features the Bama Supercharger Package, which includes a 2.9-liter Whipple blower. The supercharger combined with a Magnaflow Competition cat-back exhaust system pushs the V-8 to its 800 horses (over 650 horsepower at the wheels).

Sending the power to the rear differential is a carbon-fiber driveshaft, while axle half-shafts rated at 1,400 horsepower get the power to the wheels from there.

With power comes the need for control, and MMD by Foose is happy to oblige with Vogtland Sport lowering springs. According to the fine print, the approximate value of this badass Mustang is $70,000, so even if you don’t want the car, you can likely sell it for a hefty sum.

The typical rules apply: you must be 18 years or older, must be a resident of the U.S. or Canada, etc., etc. You can catch all of the official rules under the entry form at the above link. One neat twist to this sweepstakes is that American Muscle doesn’t limit you to just one entry. You may enter once per week.

This Is Your Chance To Win A 2015 Ford Mustang

This Is Your Chance To Win A 2015 Ford Mustang

Back in the day, Mustangs caught a lot of flak for being "girls’ cars." Apparently they still are, because this one has to be the best girl’s car ever. First, because it’s a $45,000 2015 Mustang. Second because it’s part of a sweepstakes thrown by Ford’s own Breast Cancer charity, Warriors in Pink. But most of all, because if you’re the lucky winner of said sweepstakes, they’ll drop it off at your house — for free!

Ford has been involved in Breast Cancer charities for 21 years now, helping to raise awareness, funds for research, awareness campaigns for other charities, and helping those currently fighting breast cancer to live a little better until they win. Ford’s been involved for a long time in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure; which sadly, does not involve a bunch of Can-Am style Mustangs hammering around Laguna Seca. Though, how awesome would that be?

Until then, Ford’s footing the bill for its "More Good Days" Sweepstakes, which aims to raise public awareness for its website of the same name. The site’s mostly targeted toward the people who make a difference in a cancer warrior’s life — the family, friends and community support they rely on to have "more good days." They’re giving away four prizes a month for eight months; these include gas cards, Warriors in Pink gear, a flower arrangement, gift baskets, and gift cards for retailers and salons. But if you’re reading this, you probably don’t care so much about the free mani-pedi as the sweepstakes grand prize: A custom 2015 Mustang.

The website doesn’t say whether or not it’s a GT, but that’s probably a pretty safe bet given its $45,000 value quote. Besides, there’s no way Ford would give away a V-6 in an awesome, high-profile sweepstakes like this.

Everyone knows V-6 Mustangs are girls’ cars.

Nissan launches "The Altima Chase" - Or Your Chance To Win A New Altima

Nissan is launching a new ad contest that challenges social media users to a track down a stolen Altima, using clues found sprinkled throughout the automaker’s various media channels. One lucky sleuth will walk away with the grand prize – a brand new 2015 Altima – while those who participate will be eligible to win cash and Altima-inspired gear.

The new contest piggybacks off last year’s “Ride of your Life” campaign, which saw four-door Altima street cars fitted in race guise to trick unsuspecting riders into believing the stock car’s performance was on the same level as a dedicated track machine. 

This year’s campaign, dubbed “The Altima Chase,” is a “social media scavenger hunt” that puts participants on the trail of the fictitious “Mastermind,” who has stolen and hidden the sedan, prompting an investigation into Nissan’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. You can can follow the action using #AltimaChaseSweeps or visiting the official website.

The contest began May 11th, and will run for three weeks until June 1st, so if you’re interested, get out that digital magnifying glass and start poking around. 

“The Altima ‘Ride of Your Life’ campaign has once again sparked interest and excitement among consumers nationwide, and ‘The Altima Chase’ takes this year’s campaign to the next level,” said Jeremy Tucker, vice president, Marketing Communications and Media. “The Chase is designed to drive online engagement, while emphasizing the Altima’s blend of performance, innovative technology and superior fuel economy that consistently helps give our drivers the ride of their lives.”

Royal Purple has kicked off an exciting new giveaway that will land one lucky race fan behind the pits during a Tudor United SportsCar Championship race. The “Royal Treatment” sweepstakes kicked off on May 4 and runs through the end of May, and this might be one of the coolest contests out there right now; the grand prize winner receives an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2015 Lone Star Le Mans at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX.

The highlight of this prize is, of course, being embedded with the Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 458 Italia GT3 team for the September 19th race, but he or she will also have the opportunity to meet Tudor and IndyCar driver Townsend Bell.

As the sweepstakes name suggests, the winner will definitely get the royal treatment as the prize package includes airfare for two, hotel, meals and transportation, not to mention the fact that it sounds like they will be decked out in Royal Purple racing apparel. Entrants are automatically registered by either redeeming a $2.00 mail-in rebate for particular Royal Purple products or you can just enter online here. Either way, make sure you enter by May 31.

That’s exactly what one lucky person will snag the keys to in November thanks to the “You Get My Drift” sweepstakes sponsored by Gumout and Black Magic.

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious Launch Trailer: Video

Forza Horizon 2 Presents Fast & Furious Launch Trailer: Video

Maybe it’s fate. You never know who you’ll run into at just the right time and place. Say, for instance, you happen to end up in Europe this spring to do a little street racing. What are the odds you’ll happen to meet up with the world’s greatest gang of expatriot street-racing superheroes? “The Avengers with musclecars,” as someone recently called them. What are the odds? A little better than you might think.

A couple of years ago, XBOX’s hometown racing sim Forza began branching out into the world of free-roaming racing games with the “Horizon” spin-off. It was kind of a dangerous gambit for Forza, dipping into the Need For Speed-style “open map” street racing genre; apart from its crazy customization engine, Forza’s long been the “serious” motorsports sim. But good physics only sell so many copies…at some point, you just need some "fast and furious" fun.

The first “Horizon” took place in Colorado, kind of Forza’s take on the Nevada Silver State Classic open road race. The sequel takes place in Europe, as racing sequels are wont to do. Take for example the Fast and Furious series, which starting a few titles back expatriated itself across the pond. And most fans of the series would say that was the best thing that could have happened to it since a certain Charger first showed its front wheels to the sky. Well, the first time. Speaking of which…
