Porter, Texas (April 9, 2013) – Premium synthetic oil manufacturer, Royal Purple, today announced it will again host a contest that sends one lucky winner to participate in and drive on the Hot Rod Magazine Power Tour®. The 2013 Royal Purple High Performance Experience will be hosted on the brand’s Facebook Fan Page beginning April 15.

Prior to final judging, a field of five semi-finalists will be determined by popular vote April 24 – 26 on the contest tab from all entries submitted. A grand-prize winner will be selected from the five semi-finalists by a panel of independent judges after each submits a detailed list of the vehicle’s specs and modifications, as well as providing proof of registration, insurance and a valid driver’s license.
