The Mopar “Top Eliminator” program is celebrating a decade of putting passionate Mopar enthusiasts and their elite Mopar-modified vehicles in the spotlight. The first of three 2016 Mopar “Top Eliminator” winners will be chosen at the Midwest Mopars in the Park car show, scheduled to take place June 4-5 in Farmington, Minnesota.

The long-running Mopar “Top Eliminator” program, which represents the “best of the best” in Mopar-modified creations, was started in 2007 to recognize enthusiasts who display excellence in modifying, enhancing or preserving a Mopar-powered ride.

“We at Mopar are proud to continue honoring dedicated owners through the Mopar ‘Top Eliminator’ program,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global. “The program shines a light on those who commit time, effort and resources to bring to life a Mopar ride that stands out from the rest.”

Winners are chosen by a panel of Mopar representatives, who judge candidates based on a number of criteria, including overall Mopar content of the vehicle, outstanding appearance, unique history/provenance and additional benchmarks.

Three 2016 Mopar “Top Eliminator” winners will be chosen. In addition to the Midwest Mopars in the Park event, an owner/vehicle will also be recognized at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals, July 15-17 in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The first two 2016 Mopar “Top Eliminator” trophy recipients can choose to have their award-winning vehicles prominently showcased in the Mopar display at the 22nd annual Woodward Dream Cruise on August 20 in Metro Detroit.

An outstanding Mopar-powered drag race vehicle and owner will be chosen as the final 2016 Mopar “Top Eliminator” winner at the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) U.S. Nationals, August 31-September 5 in Indianapolis.
