Andy Goin Wins $10,000 Shopping Spree From The COMP Performance Group™ During 2015 Hot Rod Power Tour
06/22/2015 10:42:26 AM
For the last three editions of the Hot Rod Power Tour, the COMP Performance Group™ (CPG) has randomly awarded a $10,000 product certificate to a Long Hauler who has creatively promoted the CPG brands throughout the seven-day road trip. In 2015 the big money went to veteran Long Hauler Andy Goin of Heth, Arkansas.
From the first day of Power Tour in Wisconsin until its final day in Louisiana, the COMP Performance Group™ staff scoured the grounds at each stop in search of Long Haulers who were actively supporting and promoting the CPG brands in creative ways. Brands included COMP Cams®, FAST™, TCI®, RHS®, Quarter Master®, Inglese™, ZEX™ and Powerhouse® Products. Those participants who were deemed worthy were presented with a Golden Ticket that entered them in a random drawing on the tour’s last day for a $10,000 COMP Performance Group™ product certificate. In all 17 Golden Tickets were passed out, and when the dust settled Andy Goin was left holding the big check.Andy drove a 1987 GMC Sierra during the tour, which he plans to outfit with a new COMP Cams® roller valve train setup and a FAST™ EZ-EFI® system. He also has a 1969 Mustang project which is going to be the recipient of some new COMP Performance Group™ go-fast goodies. To be entered in the Golden Ticket contest, Andy wore a novelty hat with rabbit ears, a signboard and a cutout of a hand giving a high five. He also turned a COMP Cams®banner into a flag which he carried and waved each day. “The rabbit ears on the hat were for the Thumpr™ cam, my wife made it,” he explained. “I just thought the board and the hand would be kind of unique to go along with that.” A banner signed by each Long Hauler was given away on the last day as well. The winner was Australian Grand Huskin, who had his 1973 Ford Falcon shipped from his home country for this year’s event.
