WELD Presents Inaugural President’s Award At 2015 O’Reilly’s World Of Wheels In Kansas City

WELDEric Butler’s custom-built 1968 Mustang was the first recipient of the WELD President’s Award at the 2015 O’Reilly’s World of Wheels presented by WELD. Butler, who participated in the show at Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Mo., is a resident of the Kansas City metro area. Butler completed all the work on the vehicle by himself, which included custom WELD wheels with a 1996 Mustang bolt pattern.

The President’s Award was presented to Butler for “the vehicle that embodies tradition, quality and durability like WELD wheels.” The award was mounted on a golden Prostar, one of WELD’s most iconic wheel designs.

In addition, WELD has offered to repolish Butler’s wheels and apply its ATC ceramic clear coat to make the wheels “factory new” forever. The company also has offered to host him for a tour of the WELD Kansas City factory to see how its wheels are manufactured.

“Since we are based in Kansas City, WELD was excited to be a presenting sponsor at the event,” said Norm Young, president and CEO of WELD. “We put together this award to celebrate the men and women who spend hours working on and taking pride in their vehicles. These hobbyists, like Eric, truly love what they do and this was a small way for us to recognize and celebrate one of these weekend warriors.”
