Automotive Parts Associates ‘Las Vegas Adrenaline Weekend’ Winners Take on City of Lights

The thrill-seekers spent the weekend among the glittering lights of The Strip at the Palazzo resort with $1,000 in cash to spend in between the heart-racing activities included in the APA customer-loyalty giveaway.

Four grand-prize winners and their guests recently hit it big with an all-expenses paid trip to Sin City in the Automotive Parts Associates (APA) spring promotion, the “Las Vegas Adrenaline Weekend” giveaway.

The thrill-seekers spent the weekend among the glittering lights of The Strip at the Palazzo resort with $1,000 in cash to spend in between the heart-racing activities included in the APA customer-loyalty giveaway.

Winners enjoyed the adrenaline rush from the driver’s seat as they cruised through the chicanes and double-apex corners at the Exotics Racing 1.5-mile track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where they pushed the limits of the exotic cars and themselves with five laps in a Ferrari, five in a Lamborghini and five more in a supercar of choice.

The group then spent the day hovering over Las Vegas landmarks and surrounding scenery of the Hoover Dam, Mojave Desert, Lake Mead, the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon in a helicopter, as well as a heart-pounding VIP experience at the Hualapai Tribe Eagle Point glass-bottom skywalk suspended 4,000 feet above the ground.

Seven APA shareholders awarded winners in the promotion. The four grand-prize winners were:

  • Don Rogers of Happy Hyundai (customer of G&H Import Auto Parts in Oak Lawn, Illinois)
  • Biff DuBose of AutoSmart South (customer of Automotive Supply in Wichita, Kansas)
  • Brad Cunningham of Simpson Import in Columbia, Missouri (customer of Ramac Industries in Minden, Nevada)
  • Brent Fraser of Campbell’s Auto Repair & Tire (customer of APM Limited in Riverview, New Brunswick)

Three runner-up $1,000 cash prizes went to:

  • Tony Adams of Adams Auto Service (customer of Lincoln Clutch and Brake in Lincoln, Nebraska)
  • Christine Anderson of Jon’s Auto Repair (customer of Metric Auto Parts in Minneapolis)
  • Ormalene Francis of Bob Kelly Automotive (customer of Peterborough Automotive in Peterborough, Ontario)

“As an APA member, we were excited one of our well-deserving customers was drawn as one of the grand-prize winners for the Las Vegas Adrenaline Weekend giveaway,” said Gene Bochinski, owner of G&H Import Auto Parts. “We were thrilled to present one of our ‘regulars,’ Don Rogers, with the prize notification. I know he and his wife had a great time! A big thanks to the promotion sponsors and APA for providing such an unforgettable experience.”

Winners were drawn at random from entries collected by APA members across the United States and Canada from February to April.

The APA Las Vegas Adrenaline Weekend promotion was sponsored by these APA manufacturing partners: Airtex, Akebono, APC Automotive Technologies, BBB Industries, Beck Arnley, Bosch, CARDONE, Denso, Dorman, Exide, Federal-Mogul, Gates, Global Parts Distributors, GSP, KYB, MAS, Mevotech, Permatex, Tenneco, Platinum Driveline, SMP, SKF, Walker Products, Wells and ZF brands.

“Thank you to all the APA members that participated and for our generous sponsors for contributing to another successful customer-loyalty promotion for our members,” said Sara Griewing, APA marketing manager. “We’re looking forward engaging our shareholders’ customers by giving away a brand-new 2018 custom Harley-Davidson Sportster Iron 883 for our next promotion beginning in September.”
