The Automotive Distribution Network (Network) presented a new Ford F-150 truck valued at $41,000 to grand prize winner Richard Feagle, who co-owns Archer Automotive & Tire LLC in Archer, Fla., with his wife, Cecile, at its 2018 national convention.
Feagle became eligible to win the Ford F-150 truck after completing his convention game card with stamps received while touring the 65,000-square-foot Manufacturers’ Exposition floor and visiting with the Network vendor partners sponsoring prizes this year.
“I don’t know how it feels yet—I’m kind of numb,” said Feagle, as the shop owner walked off the stage after successfully turning an ignition switch with the truck-winning key. “I didn’t expect that. I see my son jumping up and down, so maybe he thinks he’s going to take the keys.”
Feagle had previously won $500 at the Network’s 2015 gathering in New Orleans, La.
Other top prizes went to David Lay of Milford, Ohio, who won $25,000 to bid on collector cars and vintage motorcycles via Mecum Auction Co., and Jerry Petty of Alvarado, Texas, who was awarded a Harley-Davidson Sportster ($8,999).
The following Network customers won trips for two to Punta Cuna in the Dominican Republic, a $1,450 value: Adam Reavis, Caledonia, Mich.; Peter Goldberg, Albuquerque, N.M.; Megan Carpenter, Lexington, Ky.; and Gayle Lange, Stevensville, Md. And these attendees each won $1,000 gift cards: Bart Stockreef, Wyoming, Mich.; Vickie Kent, Odenton, Md.; Joseph Canfield, Brandon, Fla.; Samuel Craddock, Ocala, Fla.; and Douglas Dugan, Hendersonville, N.C.
The Network held its 14th national convention scheduled at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Fla., March 15-18.
The Network operates under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride. For more information, contact Steve Tucker at Network Headquarters, 3085 Fountainside Dr., Suite 210, Germantown, Tenn., 38138. (901) 682-9090.
