Winning a new Mustang has to be right up there with hitting the game-winning home run, scoring the go-ahead touchdown, or dunking on the other team’s biggest player. The only thing is, being able to take home a new Mustang has more staying power than being a sports hero for a night. Winning a Mustang means you get to enjoy it for an extended period of time—as long as you want or until you decide to part ways with the car.

One Mustang giveaway we just heard about is the Smithfield Smoke Machine, a 2018 Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 built through a partnership between Tony “Smoke” Stewart and Smithfield Foods. The Smoke Machine should easily be able to smoke the tires thanks to its Ford Performance/Roush supercharged 5.0L Coyote engine making 700 horsepower. A complete RTR suspension and aero package makes sure you’ll be able to handle the curves, and look good doing it, while graphics inspired by the Stewart-Haas Racing No. 10 Smithfield Ford Fusion driven by Aric Almirola.

“From being a part of tailgating at the track to home cookouts on race day, getting to engage with fans is our favorite part of our racing program at Smithfield,” said Tim Zimmer, chief marketing officer for Smithfield Foods’ Packaged Meats Division. “Receiving the keys to this custom, one-of-a-kind car from Tony Stewart himself during Ford Championship Weekend is going to be truly an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience for our lucky winner.”

“This Smithfield Mustang turned out so well—it’s incredible,” Stewart said. “RTR and Vaughn Gittin Jr. did an amazing job bringing the Smoke Machine concept to life. It’s been great to showcase the components and technologies from our race team’s technical partners in this build, having installed Ford Performance parts, Mobil 1 oil and lubricants, and WIX Filters.”

“The Smoke Machine Mustang really captures the aggressive look of my No. 10 Smithfield Ford, but translates it for the street,” Almirola said. “It’s exciting that Smithfield is giving away this unbelievable pony car to one lucky customer or race fan in this year’s national sweepstakes.”

“We’ve had a great time building this tire slayer of a Mustang, so we can go have some smoky fun with Tony Stewart and Smithfield,” Gittin said. “It’s been a great collaboration with Tony, Smithfield, Ford Performance, Stewart-Haas Racing, and so many others. I can’t wait to see our Smoke Machine out on tour this summer, on display at some of the biggest car shows, enthusiast events, and races across the country. We’ll be grilling out wherever we can along the way, and encouraging fans to enter for their chance to win this car at”
