Universal City, CA -- Universal Studios Hollywood turned the final page in its farewell to the "Back to the Future - The Ride" attraction. The winner of the "Out-A-Time" sweepstakes was handed the keys to the classic 1981 Dolorean after being chosen from over 50,000 entries. Winner Gary Kutchak of Wadsworth, Ohio was selected at random from contestants who had registered online or during personal visits to Universal Studios Hollywood.
After thrilling more than 61 million visitors with wild rides across "the space-time continuum" for 14 years, Universal Studios Hollywood officially closed the "Back to the Future-The Ride" attraction on Labor Day, September 3, 2007. A new attraction based on the "The Simpsons" TV series will replace it in Spring 2008.
Gary Kufchak, a car aficionado who currently owns three vehicles, will now add a fourth to his collection -- a 1981 steel grey DeLorean - the inspiration for Doc Brown's flux capacitor-equipped time machines portrayed film franchise and popular theme park ride.
