Automotive Parts Associates Treats Race Fans To Kansas Speedway Weekend

Mike and Lisa Wilson from Campbell's Auto Service in Riverview, New Brunswick, Canada; Steve and Denise Doney from Hometown Tire in Williston, Vt.; and Larry and Larry Schultz from Larry's Service Center in Linden, Wis., were the lucky six people who came to Kansas City on an all-expenses-paid trip.

Over the weekend, APA treated six enthusiastic race fans to the excitement of Kansas Speedway in once-in-a-lifetime fashion.

Mike and Lisa Wilson from Campbell’s Auto Service in Riverview, New Brunswick, Canada; Steve and Denise Doney from Hometown Tire in Williston, Vt.; and Larry and Larry Schultz from Larry’s Service Center in Linden, Wis., were the lucky six people who came to Kansas City on an all-expenses-paid trip.

While in town they met NASCAR drivers, got autographs and pictures, hung out in the garages and even the pits while the races were happening. And they watched two races with mostly cooperative weather.

“It was such a thrill to see Lisa Wilson walk up to me with the biggest smile on her face to tell me she had just been next to Dale Jr. when he stepped out of his car and she got his autograph,” said Caprice Caster, director of events and promotions for APA.

This Speedway Weekend is an annual promotion for Automotive Parts Associates but this is the first year it’s been done in conjunction with the April race. The promotion ran from January – March this year and Professionals’ Choice Warehouse Distributors gave every customer who purchased a product from one of the sponsoring manufacturers an entry form for a chance to win. The shareholders who had the winners were APM Limited, IWI Motor Parts and Burlington Foreign Car Parts. The sponsors were Airtex Fuel, ASC Industries, Bosch, Denso, Dorman, Federal-Mogul, FRAM, Gates, KYB, MAS, NGK  and SKF. Federal-Mogul, Exide and SKF supplied garage passes and hospitality tent invites as well, APA said.
