Federated ‘Dream’ Winners Have ‘Dream Weekend’

Thunder, lightning and some heavy rain could not keep the winners of the Federated "Dream Weekend" from having a great time. Five Federated service provider customers watched some major league baseball and dirt track racing, and then they got behind the wheel of some dirt track cars and learned how to race from NASCAR and dirt track legend Kenny Schrader. Not a bad way to spend a weekend in St. Louis.

Thunder, lightning and some heavy rain could not keep the winners of the Federated “Dream Weekend” from having a great time. Five Federated service provider customers watched some major league baseball and dirt track racing, and then they got behind the wheel of some dirt track cars and learned how to race from NASCAR and dirt track legend Kenny Schrader. Not a bad way to spend a weekend in St. Louis.

“Our five winners had an incredible weekend that I know they will always remember,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “The ‘Dream Weekend’ promotion was a fun and action-packed 48 hours.  Although the Federated Ironman 55 race was eventually postponed because of rain, everyone had a great time and we got to see a lot of racing action before the downpour.”

The five Federated service provider customers who attended the Federated “Dream Weekend” were:

• Dave Christopher — Christopher’s Car Care, Tallmadge, Ohio

• Howard Fulton — Cassel’s Garage, Melbourne, Fla.

• Brad Heimbach — Brad’s Motor Market Place, Lafayette, Ind.

• Rodney Gisler — Performance Plus, Three Rivers, Texas

•Troy Stariha — Kalama Auto Supply & Repair, Kalama, Wash.

 

The weekend began on Friday, Aug. 3 with a major league baseball game featuring the world champion St. Louis Cardinals hosting their arch rivals, the Milwaukee Brewers, at beautiful Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis.

On Saturday, Aug. 4, the dream weekend continued with a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and a night of dirt track racing at the Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo.  The main event, the Federated Auto Parts World of Outlaws “Ironman 55” was postponed because of a severe storm.  However, the winners still saw a lot of great racing in the qualifying heats from the comfort of track owner Schrader’s personal suite. The “Ironman 55” has been rescheduled for Oct. 13 at the Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway.

The dream weekend concluded back at the raceway on Sunday, Aug. 5 with a dirt track driving experience taught by instructor Schrader. The winners got behind the wheel of one of Schrader’s dirt cars and learned the ropes from the dirt track master.

With the complexity of today’s modern vehicles, as technicians, we are going to have to stay on top of our game.

Over the last 28 years of being a technician, I have developed the habit of checking for and reading technical service bulletins at the forefront of the diagnostic process, especially when an unfamiliar vehicle exhibiting blatant or straightforward concerns comes into the shop. I have found many valuable nuggets of information while reading over these bulletins, from wiring concerns and connector issues, to transfer noises, water leaks, and engine and transmission performance concerns. The knowledge gained in reading through these bulletins has not only helped me with the vehicles I’m working on, but also increased my perspective and ability to connect the dots on other vehicles that don’t pertain to a current bulletin.
