Federated Contest Winners Have ‘Dream Weekend’

Federated Contest Winners Have ‘Dream Weekend’

STAUNTON, Va. – Thunder, lightning and some heavy rain could not keep the winners of the Federated “Dream Weekend” from having a great time. Five Federated service provider customers watched some major league baseball and dirt track racing, and then they got behind the wheel of some dirt track cars and learned how to race from NASCAR and dirt track legend Kenny Schrader. Not a bad way to spend a weekend in St. Louis.

“Our five winners had an incredible weekend that I know they will always remember,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president for Federated. “The ‘Dream Weekend’ promotion was a fun and action-packed 48 hours. Although the Federated Ironman 55 race was eventually postponed because of rain, everyone had a great time and we got to see a lot of racing action before the downpour.”

The five Federated service provider customers who attended the Federated “Dream Weekend” were:

•Dave Christopher — Christopher’s Car Care, Tallmadge, Ohio
•Howard Fulton — Cassel’s Garage, Melbourne, Fla.
•Brad Heimbach — Brad’s Motor Market Place, Lafayette, Ind.
•Rodney Gisler — Performance Plus, Three Rivers, Texas
•Troy Stariha — Kalama Auto Supply & Repair, Kalama, Wash.

The “Dream Weekend” began on Friday, Aug. 3 with a major league baseball game featuring world champions St. Louis Cardinals hosting their arch rivals, the Milwaukee Brewers, at Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis. On Saturday, Aug. 4, the dream weekend continued with a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery and a night of dirt track racing at the Federated Auto Parts I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Mo. The main event, the Federated Auto Parts World of Outlaws “Ironman 55,” was postponed because of a severe storm.  However, the winners still saw a lot of great racing in the qualifying heats from the comfort of track owner Schrader’s personal suite.
