July 26, 2013 (Rockville, MD) - Ventrilo, the premier group voice communication program used in tournaments and multiplayer games, is sponsoring QuakeCon 2013's sixth annual "Ultimate Power Up Sweepstakes." As part of the sweepstakes, two lucky winners will receive a 2013 Ford Focus ST with the ST3 option package, valued at more than $29,000 each. QuakeCon, which is free to the public, will be held at the Hilton Anatole Hotel from August 1- 4, 2013.

The 2013 Ford Focus ST with the ST3 option package comes equipped with a 6-speed transmission, 252 horsepower engine with a full tech package including heated leather seats, HID headlamps, 8" navigation system, push button start and Ford SYNC technology. The two Ford Focus STs, one in Performance Blue and the other in Race Red, will be on display in the main exhibition area throughout the event.

"Almost two decades into QuakeCon, it's amazing to see fans come out to support our titles with such passion. It's great to work with the fine folks at Ventrilo to give back to the community with an amazing prize package," said Tim Willits, Creative Director at id Software

"Just like QuakeCon itself, Ventrilo's group voice communications technology has been connecting people together for more than a decade," said Brian Knapp, President of Ventrilo.
