MATTHEWS – World champion drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. presented a custom-built 2019 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 2 car and a $1,000 prepaid card during at a Pep Boys Cruise-In event Oct. 6 at the Pep Boys shop in town.
David Myers, of Southington, Ohio, won the car in the recent Pep Boys and Pennzoil Mustang Giveaway Sweepstakes.
Myers, a 21-year-old serving in the U.S. Army, attended the celebration and received the prizes.
“This has been a completely unbelievable experience from the moment I heard I won until now to receive this amazing Mustang from Pep Boys and Pennzoil and meet the Formula Drift champion himself, Vaughn Gittin Jr.,” Myers said.
Vaughn Gittin Jr. Motorsports designed and customized the Mustang. It includes an array of upgrades from custom tactical suspension parts to exterior elements like custom designed body armor, exhaust and custom wheels.
