As the Pentastar® V6 roared to life, Julio Olivas brought the Keys to Ride sweepstakes to its dramatic conclusion at the 2019 SEMA Show in the CURT Group booth. The excited crowd, which had gathered to see which of the six finalists held the fob that would start the grand prize custom 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited, erupted in cheers as the winner was revealed.
For nearly a year, Total Truck Centers™ resellers had sold ARIES ActionTrac™ powered running boards and other CURT Group products to earn Keys to Ride entries and a chance to get their shot at the Jeep in Vegas. In the end it was Olivas, owner of Tweety’s Tire and Welding in Midland, Texas, who conquered the challenge cosponsored by The AAM Group™ and CURT Group.
The other five attending finalists included Stephen Adams (Lithia Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT, Eugene, Ore.), Brandon Blair (Pro Trucks, Siloam Springs, Ark.), John Gillilan (Neuwirth Motors, Wilmington, N.C.), Todd Jansonius (Todd’s Exhaust Pros, Carroll, Iowa), and Shane Klemann (Billion Auto, Sioux Falls, S.D.). The Jeep customizations were installed by the talented Slick Up Center crew in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
