National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) dragsters won’t be the only ones winning big on the Western Swing this year. Automotive technicians, repair shop owners and managers can win instantly with Matco Tools’ “Tool Up! And Win” contest, kicking off this month.

Matco Tools

Matco Tools’ distributors will provide qualifying customers a scratch-off card. Every card is a winner, and a few lucky cardholders will also have the chance to win these top prizes should Antron Brown place in the top three during the Western Swing:

• Third Place: Matco will award 1,200 Matco Tools Varsity Jackets
• Runner Up: Matco will award Nine Matco Tools 5225 Toolboxes
• Grand Prize: Matco will award three all-expense paid trips for two to the NHRA Finals in Pomona, California, dinner with Antron Brown and more!

Cardholders can follow the results of Brown’s race schedule on  to see results. If Brown places first, second or third in any of three races, cardholders who reveal a matching location and position on their scratch-off card will win that prize. Qualifying races include:

• Denver, Colorado, on July 24, 2011
• Sonoma, California, on July 31, 2011
• Seattle, Washington, on August 7, 2011

“We’re excited to give our customers the chance to win with Matco Tools and Antron Brown,” says John Green, vice president of marketing with Matco Tools. “Antron has been a great partner to work with and we’re all cheering him on to bring home a victory!”

Brown enters his fourth season behind the wheel of the Matco Tools Top Fuel dragster in 2011. The 25-time NHRA winner, including nine wins in Top Fuel, is the only racer in NHRA history to win races in both the Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle categories. Brown, who has 26 career No. 1 qualifying awards, swept the three Western Swing races in 2009.
