Hertz announced Phillip Abma as the winner of its Ultimate Ride Sweepstakes in celebration of its limited-edition custom 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro ZL1 and SS models.

The custom Camaros debuted last fall and are available for rent this Spring.

The Hertz Ultimate Ride Sweepstakes brought five finalists to Charlotte, N.C., for a special experience and the chance to drive home with the Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro SS. The finalists, Gina Golshani of Oklahoma, Dion Hansen of California, Steven Ipson of Ohio, Tamra Mays of Texas, and Phillip Abma of Florida were whisked away to Charlotte for a two-night hotel stay with first class airfare for themselves and a guest.

To further enhance the experience, they received a three-day Hertz Premium/Adrenaline collection car rental, $1,000 cash and a heart-pumping track day at Charlotte Motor Speedway with the Hendrick Motorsports Team. William Byron, driver of the No. 24 Hertz Chevrolet ZL1 LE1, turned laps with each finalist in a Hertz branded two-seater race car before a tour of the Hendrick Motorsports facilities. The five winners were then given specially coded key chains. The person with the key that started the 2020 Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro SS won the grand prize of the Ultimate Ride and $15,000 cash.   

“Winning the car is something I cannot put into words,” Abma said in a statement. “I was not expecting the car to start when I hit the button and I was beyond surprised when it did.” 

The first thing he plans to do is show the car to his family, who are located in Miami. He has always wanted a Camaro, and now he is the proud owner a custom Hertz-Hendrick Motorsports Camaro SS.
