Winter is coming – is your car ready? If you need a new set of windshield wipers to keep the snow from obscuring your view, now’s the time to pick some up, as Teflon has just announced a contest that could win you a trip to see a NASCAR race.

The contest, which is on now until November 30, gives you the chance to win an all-expenses-paid NASCAR 2012 weekend. It also includes VIP pit passes and the chance to meet Jeff Gordon.

In addition to the sweepstakes, Teflon is also running a special promotion on its windshield wipers. You can purchase Teflon SHIELD wiper blades at Advance Auto Parts stores for a special discounted price (buy one, get 50 percent off the second one), and a portion of the sale will be donated to the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. You save money and you get to help a good cause – it’s a win-win situation.

To enter the contest, just fill out the form found on the Teflon NASCAR sweepstakes page.

General Motors has announced the recall of 4,674 model year 2011 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups for faulty windshield wipers that may fail in cold weather conditions.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) has stated that the windshield wipers may become inoperative. The issue centers around potentially loose nuts on the wiper’s motor crank arm intended to secure the windshield wipers. The nuts were not properly secured during manufacturing. This could reduce driver visibility, therefor increasing the risk of a crash.
