Brian Walker of Big B’s Automotive in Cambridge Springs, Pa., won the 2014 Corvette Stingray on the main stage of the DAYTONA Speedway front stretch just before Saturday’s race. All 24 eligible technicians were brought on stage where four-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday Jr. drew three names. The crowd went wild as the three finalists drew key fobs, and Walker’s unlocked the yellow 2014 Corvette Stingray convertible featured on the track. Walker was treated to a lap around the speedway with Hornaday at the wheel to top off a great event.

“The Drive to Daytona sweepstakes was a tremendous event for our Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper parts stores and distributors," said Dan Williford, Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance marketing director. “We had a fabulous time at the Daytona International Speedway and enjoyed a great weekend of driver appearances, garage and pit tours, and exciting racing action!"
