Mobil 1, O’Reilly Auto Parts Present The 2013 Pit Crew Challenge

Mobil 1, the Official Motor Oil of NASCAR, is giving three fans a chance to test their pit lane skills.

Mobil 1 and O’Reilly Auto Parts are giving three lucky Pit Crew Challenge Sweepstakes grand prize winners the opportunity to receive pit crew training at the 5 Off 5 On pit crew school in Mooresville, NC. Home to more than 20 NASCAR race teams, Mooresville is nicknamed “Race City, USA.” Winners also will meet Tony Stewart, driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1/Bass Pro Chevy, and tour the Stewart-Haas Racing shop in Kannapolis, NC.

Now through July 30, 2013, fans can go to the nearest participating O’Reilly Auto Parts store and ask for an official mail-in entry form.

In addition to the three grand prize winners, five first place winners will receive Stewart-Haas Racing jackets, 25 second place winners will receive Stewart-Haas Racing pit shirts and 50 third place winners will receive Stewart-Haas pit caps.

“The pit crews are the unsung heroes behind the success of any NASCAR driver,” said Christy Rust, retail marketing coordinator for ExxonMobil. “The team of six that goes over the wall performs more than 70 maneuvers in 15 seconds with no room for error. We are giving three lucky fans the opportunity to experience how professional pit crews train.”

The three grand prize winners will receive a four-day, three-night trip to pit crew school in Race City, NC. The trip will include:
