“Ironically, a few months ago I had said to my wife, ‘I don’t think I’ll ever get my hot-rod.’ I’ve wanted a hot rod for as long as I can remember, so when FCA told me I won a car, I immediately chose the Dodge Challenger,” said Kevin Arias, the winner of the 2015 FCA National Giveaway. “I’m feeling truly blessed. I never win anything, so when I got the call from FCA it was unbelievable. On top of that, everyone at FCA has made this experience just awesome.”

Kevin entered the FCA National Giveaway while visiting the Ram Truck brand space at the 2015 Shot Show, which is an even that took place in January 2015 in Las Vegas. His Dodge Challenger will from his local Fiat Chrysler dealership in Shorewood, Illinois.
