The Winner of the OPGI Win Big Contest at SEMA
OPGI, or Original Parts Group Incorporated, threw a sweepstakes for a $5,000 gift card presented to one lucky winner at the 2018 SEMA show in Las Vegas. Our own Katie Osborne and Marc Christ were at the OPGI booth to talk to the winner, Scott Dawson, about his big win.
Scott’s wife found out about the sweepstakes and made sure that her husband put in an entry. “My wife was checking our emails to track our products that we had just purchased and told me I should enter this contest,” Scott tells us.
Scott submitted his entry into the sweepstakes and didn’t think much of it until he received a call that he had won the entire thing. His entry was chosen over 8,000 others, and he only entered one time.
After a house fire this February, the win was a nice surprise for the Buckley, Washington resident. Now he can get a nice head start on restoring his 1972 Buick Skylark Coupe. The plans are to make a nice cruiser with a decent amount of torque.
“I may buy some suspension pieces, or I might buy some interior pieces. I’m not sure since I have quite the list,” Scott says after we asked what he plans to buy with his big winnings.
“Unbelievable. I can’t believe I won it.”
