IRWIN Racing Supercars driver Mark Winterbottom has assisted Frankston-based carpenter Paul Miskimmin in scoring over $5,000 worth of IRWIN Tools in the IRWIN Trolley Dash.

Winterbottom, the 2013 Bathurst 1000 winner and 2015 Supercars Champion, played the role of the ‘co-dasher’, joining Miskimmin who won a nationwide competition to earn his spot in a 60-second free-for-all grab of IRWIN Tools at the all-new Bunnings Warehouse in Melton, Victoria.

The competition saw every dollar spent by shoppers all around Australia on IRWIN Tools, which are exclusively available from Bunnings Warehouse, enter the running to win the chance to score as many IRWIN products as they could alongside Winterbottom in the 60-second time limit.

A carpenter-by-trade, Miskimmin won precisely 117 individual IRWIN Tools products worth a grand total of $5182.05, including hammers, chisels, circular saw blades, handsaws, clamps and more in a packed trolley dressed in the colours of Winterbottom’s #18 IRWIN Racing Holden ZB Commodore.

Stay tuned for IRWIN’s upcoming competition, where shoppers will have the chance to win an all-inclusive trip for two to this year’s Bathurst 1000 to support the IRWIN Racing team.

Winterbottom will next hit the track on May 8-9 for the OTR SuperSprint at The Bend Motorsport Park in South Australia.

“I’m really happy with how we went, we scored over $5000 worth of IRWIN products for Paul  to take home with him.

“It really was the tradies’ dream, a chance to go around Bunnings and grab anything you want off the shelf!”

“He’s a chippy by trade, so we know that all the products we won for him today will be put to good use in his work.

“I was nervous before the start, the pressure was on to do the best job that I could so Paul would leave with a decent haul of products.

“We had a chance to scope out the area and work out a plan of attack where we split up and worked our way down seperate aisles of the tool centre before we met in the middle and grabbed any IRWIN products in sight.

“It was great fun, thanks to Bunnings Warehouse and the staff at their Melton store for putting on a great event, and to IRWIN Tools for creating these awesome promotions.”
