MAHLE-Champion-Technician-300x154MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. recently kicked off its fifth annual MAHLE Aftermarket Champion Technician Contest, with the grand-prize winner receiving a VIP trip to the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week in Las Vegas. The contest is designed to spotlight talented and forward-thinking engine technicians and specialists. An independent panel of experts will review each entrants’ answers to a series of five questions to determine if success and creativity related to the advancement of engine development is demonstrated.

“Engine technicians across the nation work hard, but infrequently receive accolades for their contributions. The MAHLE Aftermarket Champion Technician Contest enables us to bestow overdue recognition on engine specialists,” said Jon Douglas, general manager, MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “Now in its fifth year, the MAHLE contest gives us the opportunity to salute one of the very best technicians – the type of person who gives true meaning to the term of ‘champion.’”

To enter, participants must answer a series of five questions that describe the nominee’s passion for engines and engine rebuilding, explains the history of their journey in this field and names their mentor and illustrates the impact he or she had on the nominee’s life. Additional answers should detail a specific occurrence that demonstrates creativity and success in the engine development field and, finally, describes the skills and talents the individual exemplifies to classify them as a “champion.”

Participants can submit an entry on their own behalf or on behalf of someone else. Entrants must complete and submit the contest nomination form at champtechcontest.com by 11:59 p.m. EST on Oct. 9.

The grand-prize winner will be determined from the eligible entries based on one-third creativity, one-third originality and one-third relevance to the criteria. The winner will receive a prize package consisting of a trip to Las Vegas Dec. 2-5, including coach class airfare for two, a three-night hotel stay, a special meet-and-greet with a NASCAR personality, VIP viewing area at NASCAR Victory Lap and tickets to NASCAR After The Lap, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards and the NMPA Myers Brothers Awards Luncheon.
