MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. recently kicked off the fourth annual MAHLE Aftermarket Champion Technician Contest, designed to spotlight talented and forward thinking engine technicians and specialists who demonstrate success and creativity as it relates to advancing the field of engine development. Entrants must answer a series of five questions, which will be reviewed by an independent panel of experts. One grand-prize winner will be selected to receive a VIP trip to the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week in Las Vegas.
“Now in its fourth year, the MAHLE Aftermarket Champion Technician Contest has allowed us to recognize the tireless dedication and hard work of engine specialists across the nation,” says Jon Douglas, General Manager, MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “Not only is it essential that we observe those who support us on a daily basis, but also to reward one talented individual who exemplifies a ‘champion’ in every sense of the word.”
To enter, MAHLE says participants must answer a series of five questions that describes the nominee’s passion for engines and engine rebuilding, explains the history of their journey in this field, names their mentor and illustrates the impact he or she had on the nominee’s life, details 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. MAHLE says entrants must complete and submit the contest nomination form at www.champtechcontest.com now through 11:59 p.m. ET on Oct. 31, 2014.
