Luck, and a Little Bit of Karma, Helps Service Dealer Drive Away in New Corvette from NAPA Brake and Chassis

For years Troy Casey spent his weekends out in the garage fixing up old sports cars. Now he plans to spend his weekends cruising around Camden, NJ, in a new sports car - namely a 2005 Corvette Convertible. Casey, general manager of City Select Auto in Camden, chose the winning key that started a Corvette Convertible, making him the grand prize winner of the NAPA Brake and Chassis Varsity Jacket/Corvette Sweepstakes, June 3 in Nashville, TN.

For years Troy Casey spent his weekends out in the garage fixing up old sports cars. Now he plans to spend his weekends cruising around Camden, NJ, in a new sports car — namely a 2005 Corvette Convertible.

Casey, general manager of City Select Auto in Camden, chose the winning key that started a Corvette Convertible, making him the grand prize winner of the NAPA Brake and Chassis Varsity Jacket/Corvette Sweepstakes, June 3 in Nashville, TN. Casey was joined in the Music City by three other regional winners, all service dealers from across the country, for an all-expense paid trip for two that included a special tour of the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, KY.

Casey was given the option of choosing the 2005 model or a collector’s edition 1965 Corvette Convertible. He chose the 2005 model valued at more than $52,000.

The Varsity Jacket/Corvette Sweepstakes is one way NAPA Brake and Chassis thanks and rewards its customers for the loyalty they show to the NAPA Brake and Chassis brand.

“Our customers are the key to making NAPA Brake and Chassis successful,” said Bill Smith, director of marketing for NAPA Brake and Chassis. “We had an outstanding group of winners join us in Nashville for three days — they’re the reason why we’re here. I’m very happy for Troy and his family. Everyone here walked away a winner.”

Including Casey, the four regional winners were:
•Glenn Armbruster — I-70 Truck Repair, Hays, KS;
•Troy Casey — City Select Auto, Camden, NJ;
•Billy Fontenat — Billy Fontenat Professional Auto, Lake Charles, LA; and
•John Vanderhelm — Ace Equipment Inc., Ripon, CA.

Thousands of service dealers participated in the NAPA Brake and Chassis Varsity Jacket/Corvette Sweepstakes by placing an order for an exclusive NAPA BRAKE and CHASSIS race team varsity jacket — each one customized with the car number and signature of their favorite NASCAR driver.
Sweepstakes participants were able to earn back the cost of the jacket with each purchase of NAPA Application Engineered pads, shoes, calipers, drums and rotors; NAPA Ceramix pads; NAPA Precision Engineered chassis parts; NAPA Professional Grade semi-loaded calipers; NAPA brake boosters; NAPA steel brake line and wheel stud and nut assortments; and NAPA Safety Stop pads and shoes.
