Network Names Finalists For Chance To Win Clay Millican’s ’57 Chevy Pickup

The Automotive Distribution Network has selected five technicians as winners of a trip to its 2015 National Convention in New Orleans, where they will a have a chance to compete for Clay Millican’s ’57 Chevy truck and a brand-new 2015 Chevy pickup.

“As part of a six-month sweepstakes, these technicians were chosen from service dealers across the country for a chance to win grand prizes that every car guy would love to have in his driveway,” said Mike Lambert, president of the Network. “One winner will receive a classic ’57 Chevy pickup belonging to the Network’s six-time World champion drag racer, while the other tech will be driving a brand-new Chevy.”

From June 1 through Nov. 30, service dealers nationwide became eligible by making qualifying product purchases from their Network supplier. Weekly and monthly winners received prizes that included replica trucks, floor jacks, impact wrenches and shop lifts.

The following five finalists will be competing for the Chevy pickups on the final night of the group’s upcoming convention on Feb. 28, 2015:
• Pat Barry, Seaside Park Service Center; Seaside Park, N.J.
• Scott Christensen, SC Auto Repairs; Hillsboro, N.H.
• Steven Youngquist, Royal Automotive Service; Tucson, Ariz.
• Mike Sankovich, Lakeside Certified Auto; Willoughby, Ohio
• Terri Sommers, Wilson’s Auto Repair; Sarasota, Fla.

To prepare Millican’s truck for its new owner, the orange ’57 Chevy has recently been fitted with all-new parts donated by several of the Network’s manufacturer partners. The pickup now sits on an ’87 chassis, with a hot-rodded motor and suspension, as well as custom paint, interior and wheels. The entire project was documented in a series of “Tales of the Truck” YouTube videos at

“The truck looks amazing and I know it runs a whole lot better than it did back in 1957,” said Millican, who recently signed on for a fifth NHRA Top Fuel season as the driver of the Parts Plus/Great Clips dragster. “I’m on the road competing most of the year, so I feel this classic piece of American machinery belongs in the hands of a technician who can really take care of it.”
