vice president of program group sales for USA Industries, was the
co-grand marshal and also presented the winner’s trophy at the
conclusion of the race. Both men were introduced from the stage and had
the opportunity to greet the drivers.

special event for over 1,200 Federated customers each year, and we are
happy to have our award-winning suppliers participate in the activities
surrounding the race,” said Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts.
