ESCANABA, Mich., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Race Ramps proudly welcomes the High Five Tour's 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang to its SEMA Show booth in Central Hall #21217. The Shelby GT350 makes its stop in Las Vegas after embarking on a five-month and over 125-city tour. In its seventh annual national High Five Tour (HFT), 100% of the dollars raised goes directly to benefit Wounded Warriors Family Support (WWFS), whose mission is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations.
The featured 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang is symbolic of American pride and strength and is wrapped in a patriotic design. The vehicle is equipped with a 5.2L V8 engine with a flat-plane crank that produces 526-horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. It also features a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission and a 3.73 limited slip rear axle. The Mustang has quad exhaust tips with active valve technology that increases air flow through the system while reducing back pressure and unleashing the full potential of the 5.2L V8.
After an extensive tour, the GT350 is also covered with thousands of signatures which have been added to the vehicle on each tour stop by event attendees. SEMA Show attendees are also encouraged to visit the Race Ramps booth to sign and support the WWFS. Race Ramps welcomes WWFS representatives Duane R. Bartelt, Chris Wurtele, and Greg and Elise Stevenson to their booth.
As a Made in the USA product, Race Ramps, a division of Brute Technologies, continues to proudly manufacture their products in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. "We strive to look for ways to support our military and their families. The mission and dedication of the WWFS and their High Five Tour shows a tremendous commitment to making a difference for those who have sacrificed for our country," said Rich Heinz, president of Brute Technologies.
As many automotive and aftermarket industry professionals are also connected to the military either by way of serving or having family and friends who have or currently serve, the HFT Mustang is a highly complementing feature to Race Ramps' SEMA Show exhibit. "We are thrilled to partner with Race Ramps, an American-made company, to spread the word about the sacrifices our military families make for our freedom," said Ron Julianelle, coordinator of the HFT. "Thank you to Race Ramps for the opportunity to display the HFT Mustang and we hope it will bring additional support and awareness for our military heroes."
Immediately after the SEMA Show, the HFT Mustang continues its journey to Detroit where it will be featured in events honoring Veterans. After its final tour stop, the vehicle will be auctioned off with all of the proceeds going to benefit WWFS programs. More information can be found on the HFT at highfivetour.com or the WWFS at wwfs.org.
