Diesel Performance Parts Discusses 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Chosen as Champion 'King of the Road'

A gleaming, custom-green 1967 Chevrolet Camaro used as a daily driver by a Jacksonville, Fla., enthusiast is the grand-prize winner of the Champion® Spark Plug brand's "King of the Road" contest.


Sylvan Lake, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/02/2014 -- Kowalchick, the owner of a specialty automotive service business, receives the $5,000 King of the Road grand prize as well as $500 for winning one of the contest's 10 weekly rounds. The 2014 King of the Road program garnered more than 550 entries and over 90,000 votes from among the Web-connected Champion community of "Performance Driven(TM)" enthusiasts.

"This is the coolest honor and a great reward for all of the hours I spent restoring my car in the driveway," Kowalchick said. "We've won trophies at car shows, but to be selected by Champion and its thousands of fans is something I'll never forget. I never would have won this if it weren't for the encouragement of my family and the many friends I have met at car cruises, so I thank all of them."
