Parts Plus Repair America Sweepstakes Awards Ultimate Dream Car Weekend To 6 Service Dealers

Parts-Plus-Logo-300x154As part of its Repair America Sweepstakes, Parts Plus has awarded six service dealers trips to Los Angeles to drive an array of exotic vehicles for the Ultimate Dream Car Weekend.

The following grand-prize winners and their spouses will alternate taking turns behind the wheel so they can each experience the thrill of driving such world-class vehicles as a Lamborghini, a Porsche, a Maserati and a Ferrari down the scenic Pacific Coast Highway and the Ortega Highway in Orange County:

• Bill Mock — Winston-Salem, North Carolina
• Kevin Wood — Ocala, Florida
• Richard Harris — Whitefield, New Hampshire
• Scott Leep — Grand Rapids, Michigan
• Gary Stinnett — North Royalton, Ohio
• Beth Wilt — Elkridge, Maryland

The winners, who will be staying at a luxurious resort in Huntington Beach, will also receive a private guided tour of Los Angeles as part of their West Coast weekend.

Shops became eligible by earning points for product purchases from the Network’s manufacturer partners through their Parts Plus Autostore or warehouse distributor. Originally scheduled to present trips to five winners, the 2015 Repair America Sweepstakes was so popular with service dealers that a sixth grand prize was awarded.

“Repair America always generates customer goodwill, loyalty and excitement for our Parts Plus warehouse distributors, jobbers and manufacturer partners,” said Bob Barstow, the Network’s vice president of marketing. “The participation this year was unprecedented. I can’t think of a better prize for a group of car enthusiasts to drive the most amazing vehicles in the world on some of the most iconic roads in America.”
