American Powertrain and Tremec Give Out Hot Rod Power Tour Grand Prize

Jessika Pownall has won the week-long contest and will receive either a 5- or 6-speed Tremec transmission and American Powertrain conversion kit.

American Powertrain, a leading distributor of Tremec manual transmissions, teamed up with Tremec to give away a grand prize on the last day of the Hot Rod Power Tour that recently concluded. Jessika Pownall was announced the winner of the week-long contest and will have the option to receive either a 5-speed or 6-speed Tremec transmission and an American Powertrain conversion kit that includes everything required for installation – hydraulics, crossmember, aluminum bellhousing, clutch kit and more. The grand prize is valued at over $5,000.  

Matt Graves, American Powertrain Marketing and Product Manager says, “We’ve participated with Tremec in almost every Power Tour since its start. There’s a lot of excitement on the last day of the event when Long Haulers can win big prizes like ours. For this grand prize, all they had to do was stop by our booth during the tour and get two tickets to enter – one from American Powertrain and one from Tremec. We couldn’t make it easier. Too, it’s a great way to connect with our core customers and answer any questions they may have.” 

The contest was open to any of the 10,000+ registered Power Tour Long Hauler participants during the five-day event that began in Bowling Green, KY on June 10 and concluded at the Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park on Friday, June 14.

Pownall says, “It is so funny that I won as just prior to the announcement I looked at my husband and our friends and said, ‘This is a winner, I can feel it.’ I was so very surprised still when they called out the last three numbers. I am leaning toward a TR-4050 5-speed to use in our 1965 Chevy C20. We farm pumpkins and this truck has been the face of our farming operation for marketing. The 5-speed would be good for towing and this truck needs a new transmission. We’re excited to give it an upgrade.”
