And the Winner of the Keep My Ride Alive $10,000 Sweepstakes Is…

Illinois man wins big after sharing how products kept 1983 Mercury Lynx going

Bar’s Leaks customers from all over America responded to our $10,000 question last year as part of the Bar’s Leaks “Keep My Ride Alive” $10,000 sweepstakes. One of the more than 570,000 entries came from Mark S. from Waterloo, IL, who will begin the new year with a little extra money in his pocket after being selected as the contest winner.

We recently presented  Mark with a $10,000 check at the Waterloo, IL O’Reilly Auto Parts store where he purchases his Bar’s Leaks products. Check out a video of the presentation — which didn’t go quite the way Bobby J, our brand ambassador and technical support specialist, expected it to.

(Dinner then lunch, anyone?)

We asked our customers to share their stories, photos and videos about the importance of keeping their ride alive. Mark is a long-time Bar’s Leaks and Rislone customer, having used both products in a number of vehicles through the years, including his 1983 Mercury Lynx and a Ford Ranger made in the 1980s.

This sweepstakes, supported by PowerNation TV, reached tens of millions do-it-yourself car enthusiasts who regularly tune in to PowerNation TV shows such as “Engine Power,” “XOR – Xtreme Off-Road,” “Truck Tech” and “Detroit Muscle.”

For all who entered, thank you for your interest. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate it. And since Bobby J didn’t get the day he was planning with Mark, maybe one of you can help him out. He’s really into this “dinner then lunch” thing, if it’s even a thing. He swears it is, but we’re not so sure.
