Sweepstakes winner Matt Pierson of Cherokee, Kan., receives the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro upon return from year-long deployment in Afghanistan.

For Pierson, choosing the Camaro was an easy decision, despite the fact that his wife, Paula, is a known Mustang fan. The couple initially sold their ‟91 Mustang for a down payment on their house, but Pierson kept track of the car and bought it back a few years ago. He is now working to restore it.

“I always grew up in a Chevrolet family and my mom and dad even have matching Camaros,” said Pierson. “Winning this car is all I have been able to think about.”

The car is a 2010 Camaro SS, LS3 V8 with a 6-speed manual transmission and has received many product enhancements from Prestolite Performance‟s brands, which can be found at From the time of purchase, the Camaro has improved performance by almost three-tenths of a second, running a best time of 12.99 at 109.68 mph in the quarter mile.
