CARSTAR COLLISION CENTERS LAUNCHES 2010 NATIONAL
Overland Park, Kan. (April 21, 2010) – Muscle-car fans, it’s time to rev your engines. CARSTAR Collision Centers, the nation’s largest chain of branded collision repair experts, is kicking off the 2010 SuperStang National Muscle Tour at the Shelbyfest on April 23 and 24, 2010, in Hermann, MO.
The tour will feature the special SuperStang rebuilt 1967 Mustang that CARSTAR created in 2007. This one-of-a-kind vehicle has made hundreds of stops on a national tour, including CARSTAR stores, community events and automotive events.
For 2010, CARSTAR and Hertz partnered to give the original CARSTAR SuperStang a new SisterStang. During the 2010 tour, the SuperStang won’t be alone – accompanying it will be a beautiful 2007 High Performance Hertz Shelby Mustang. Starting this spring, the two Mustangs will travel across the United States to support local charities. They are expected to make appearances all over the country at different events and fundraisers.
The tour will end with a sweepstakes to win the SisterStang. To register, visit www.CARSTAR.com. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Sweepstakes begins on or about April 23, 2010 at 12:01 a.m. ET and ends on Feb. 28, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Open only to legal U.S. residents residing in the continental U.S. who are 18 years of age or older.
“The SuperStang Muscle Tour combines two things we at CARSTAR are passionate about – beautiful automobiles and helping children and their families in a time of need,” said Dick Cross, chairman and CEO of CARSTAR Collision Centers. “With the SuperStang Muscle Tour we are able to work in our franchisees’ communities to support local charities, and we can inspire car fans with these two amazing Mustangs.”
The tour kicks off at Shelbyfest, an event which supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Missouri. Through its national events and other activities, CARSTAR has raised more than $300,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and continues to raise funds for the Foundation through its ongoing programs.
The SuperStang Muscle Tour is sponsored by Hertz, BASF, 3M, Mitchell, FinishMaster, R&A Motorsports and Chief Automobile Technologies. For a schedule of SuperStang events and appearances visit www.CARSTAR.com.
