WIX Filters Expands Mobile Marketing Program
February 1, 2013
The WIX-branded Petty Challenger joins the company's mobile marketing program for 2013.
GASTONIA, N.C. – WIX Filters, a member of the Affinia Group family of brands, has expanded its mobile marketing program by adding the Richard Petty Challenger to join the WIX H2 in 2013. The mobile marketing program will increase its event presence by 54 percent in 2013, with 185 H2 events and 100 Petty Challenger events combining for a total 285 events this year.
“Adding the Petty Challenger to our mobile marketing program allows WIX to further our local and regional customer events and trade shows and attendance at motorsports events while also deepening our relationships with our customers’ customers,” said Mike Harvey, brand manager for WIX Filters. “The WIX H2 and its driver, who is known across the country as Hummer Bob, have built a successful following over the past nine years and we hope to continue the excitement of the program by adding the Richard Petty Challenger and more events across the U.S.”
The Richard Petty custom-built 2010 Dodge Challenger was created for WIX Filters by Petty’s Garage, a high-performance speed shop founded in 2008 as an expansion of Petty’s competitive career and ambition to find ways to continue to win on and off the track. The Challenger also features a WIX-inspired paint scheme and is fully equipped with WIX oil, air, fuel and cabin air filters. Roger Whitworth will be at the helm at the Petty Challenger.
A WIX H2 appearance is an annual event for many WIX customers. Also fully equipped with WIX oil, air, fuel and cabin air filters, the WIX H2 features interactive displays where customers can see and feel the quality difference in a WIX filter.
The WIX H2 and Petty Challenger’s adventures will be chronicled with photos and videos through Facebook (, Twitter (@wixfilters) and YouTube ( The WIX H2 and Challenger’s event schedule can also be found at
