NASCAR star Carl Edwards was not the only winner at the Federated Auto Parts 300 Nationwide race held July 23 at the Nashville Superspeedway. Federated customer Jeff Crissman was also a winner as he was awarded a brand new 2011 Camaro.
“Every year, as part of the festivities surrounding the Federated 300, we award a custom Federated vehicle to one of our customers,” said Phil Moore, senior vice president of Federated Auto Parts. “We are thrilled to be able to present this car to Jeff. We congratulate him and thank him for being a loyal Federated associate.”
Crissman, who works at Frank’s Coach and Carriage in Broadview Heights, Ohio, was the contest winner in the Federated Camaro giveaway held as part of the pre-race hospitality events associated with the annual Federated 300. Over 1,200 people attended the race as guests of Federated.
The Federated Auto Parts 300 was televised live nationally on ESPN. Edwards captured the checker flag and Federated spokesman Kenny Wallace rounded out the top 10. In addition to an exciting night of racing, Federated guests and Nashville-area race fans enjoyed a post-race concert by the Eli Young Band.
Bill Collins, sales and marketing coordinator for Standard Motor Products (SMP) served as the grand marshal of the Federated 300 and Ken Salinger, director of brake products for Federal-Mogul, was the co-grand marshal and official starter. Kevin Byrd from SPEED’s “Two Guys Garage” was the honorary flagman.
“We had a great weekend again this year and we want to thank all our members, customers and manufacturing partners who helped make the Federated 300 a tremendous success for everyone involved,” concluded Moore.
