Second 2012 Mopar ‘Top Eliminator’ to be Named at 28th Annual Midwest Mopars in the Park in Minnesota

By Auto News Log • May 29th, 2012

The second of four 2012 Mopar® “Top Eliminator” winners will be named during the 28th Annual Midwest Mopars in the Park car show and swap meet in Farmington, Minn., June 2–3. The winner will be recognized during the awards ceremony that completes the two-day event.

The long-running Mopar “Top Eliminator” program shines a light on passionate and dedicated Mopar enthusiasts who display unmatched skill in modifying or preserving a classic or modern-day Mopar vehicle. As in previous years, 2012 Mopar “Top Eliminator” winners will be honored by having their vehicles showcased in the Mopar display area at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Oct. 30–Nov. 2, 2012.

The 2012 Midwest Mopars in the Park will mark the third consecutive year that the Mopar “Top Eliminator” program has been a part of the event. Martin Wimberly of Odin, Ill., and his 1971 Plymouth HEMI® ‘Cuda convertible were chosen as the Mopar “Top Eliminator” last year during Midwest Mopars in the Park, with more than 1,200 vehicles on display.

Tom Ledoux of Pearland, Texas, was chosen as the first 2012 Mopar “Top Eliminator” winner for his modified 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8® during the Seventh Annual Spring Festival of LXs in Irvine, Calif., on March 24. The third 2012 Mopar “Top Eliminator” winner will be announced at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals in Carlisle, Pa., July 6–8, while the fourth and final Mopar “Top Eliminator” will be picked via an online competition.

Mopar “Top Eliminator” candidates are judged on a number of criteria, including Mopar content, overall appearance and additional benchmarks. A panel of Mopar representatives chooses each winner. Mopar “Top Eliminator” submission forms are available at each event, or for download at the event web site.

The Mopar display will be on hand for both days of the Midwest Mopars in the Park, with Mopar parts and show vehicles on exhibit, along with fun activities and contests available for attendees to take part in. The Mopar brand will also feature its Rolling Speedshop gear trailer, with Mopar apparel and other items available for purchase.
