DRAWINGS:

FINALIST DRAWING: On or about March 9, 2015 eight (8) Finalist Prize winners (the “Finalist”) and one (1) Alternate Finalist Prize winner (the “Alternate Finalist”) will be selected in a random drawing conducted under the supervision of Sweepstakes Administrator, an independent judging organization, whose decisions are based on their sole discretion and interpretation of these Official Rules, and are final and binding in all respects. Odds of being selected as a Finalist or Alternate Finalist and winning a Finalist Prize are dependent upon the total number of eligible entries received.

GRAND PRIZE SELECTION PROCESS:  On April 10, 2015, Finalists and Alternate Finalist will attend a publicity event prior to the K&N Horsepower Challenge Race (the “Race”) scheduled for April 11, 2015 (the “Event”).  If a Finalist fails to arrive at the Event, he/she is subject to disqualification at the sole discretion of Sponsor and the Alternate Finalist will be deemed a Finalist and chosen to participate in the Event, time permitting.  At the Event, each Finalist will randomly draw their professional Pro Stock driver in the order in which a third party Representative pulls the Finalist’s name. Each Finalist will then randomly draw one (1) of the eight (8) professional Pro Stock drivers participating in the Race and will be assigned that professional Pro Stock driver.  On April 11, 2015, the Grand Prize winner will be determined based upon the Finalist who is paired with the professional Pro Stock driver that finishes first in the Race according to the official race results as certified by the NHRA. Odds of winning the Grand Prize are approximately 1:8 but depend on the actual number of Finalists that are confirmed and attend the Event, which driver a Finalist is randomly paired with, and that driver’s performance in the Race/the official Race results.  If a Finalist can not be confirmed prior to the Event or does not attend the Event for any reason, then only the total number of Finalists who were verified and are actually in attendance at the Event will be paired with a professional driver. In the Event that the winning professional driver is not paired with a Finalist, the Grand Prize winner will be determined based upon the finalist paired with the professional driver who finishes the race in the next best time (according to the official race results as certified by the NHRA).

PLEASE NOTE FOR ALTERNATE FINALIST:  An Alternate Finalist will only be afforded the opportunity to participate in the Event for a chance to win the Grand Prize should a Finalist; (a) forfeit their right to participate in the Event, (b) not meet the requirements to participate in the Event; or (c) be disqualified from participating in the Event prior to the start of the Event, all of which will be determined by the Sponsor at their sole discretion and in accordance with these official rules.  Any Alternate Finalist’s presence at the Event does not guarantee participation in the Event or the chance to win the Grand Prize.

In the event the Race is cancelled, the Grand Prize winner will be selected in a random drawing from among the actual number of confirmed Finalists and will be conducted under the supervision of the Representative present at the Selection Process or the National Sweepstakes Company, whose decisions are based on their sole discretion and interpretation of these official rules, and are final and binding in all respects.
