APA ‘Weekend Getaway’ Winners Tackle the Dunes in Vegas

APA ‘Weekend Getaway’ Winners Tackle the Dunes in Vegas

Eleven APA combined shareholders/members signed up more than 600 shops to participate in the promotion.

Ten grand-prize winners and their guests won an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas in the Automotive Parts Associates (APA) fall promotion, the “Weekend Getaway” giveaway plus $500!

Winners and guests spent the weekend in downtown Vegas at the Golden Nugget resort and experienced the sights and sounds of Fremont Street. They were most excited about the two-hour Baja Chase through the Nellis Dunes in custom-built buggies – a fun, intense chase through 15,000 acres of sand dunes, dry riverbeds, trails and steep drops. Though short, this weekend getaway was a blast for everyone!

Eleven APA combined shareholders/members signed up more than 600 shops to participate in the promotion. Of the more than 12,000 entries received, there were 10 grand-prize winners, eight second-place winners of $500 and 24 winners of $100 gift cards.

Winners were drawn at random from entries collected by APA members across the United States. The APA Weekend Getaway promotion was sponsored by APA’s manufacturing partners: Aisin, AP Exhaust, Bendix, Bosch, Delphi, Denso, Dorman, DRiV, FCS, First Brands, Gates, GSP, KYB, Mahle, Mevotech, Trakmotive, Walker Products and ZF brands.

“Thank you to all the APA shareholders and TruStar members that participated and for our generous sponsors for contributing to another successful customer-loyalty promotion,” said Jan Larson, marketing director of APA. “We are looking forward to our 2023 spring promotion, where 70 winners will win $500! The promotion will run April 1 through May 31.”
