The technicians are the grand prize winners of the Spring Repair America sweepstakes, and they’ll participate in the Drive A Tank experience.

Winners will be flown to Minnesota and will experience what it’s like to drive Sherman 8 tanks, the FV433 Abbott SPG and the FV432 APC. The group also will fire combat weaponry including a submachine gun, an M4 assault rifle and an M1919 Browning Medium machine gun.

The winning technicians are:

  • Kevin Peterson, Tire Mart and Auto Express, Livermore, Calif.,
  • Scott Janson, Scotty’s Automotive, Ft. Myers, Fla.,
  • Stefan Nikolof, Nik & Nates Automotive/Tire, Freehold, N.J.,
  • Todd Cantile, Cedar Rock Auto Repair, Rockford, Mich. and
  • Keith Cullen, Brake Max #3-Oracle, Tucson, Ariz.

David Prater, president of the group says, “The Network is so excited to provide another chance for our outstanding technicians to be rewarded. These winners will enjoy a three-day weekend experiencing how the heroes of World War II would have driven in combat. It is an awe-inspiring opportunity for these Parts Plus customers to experience this legendary machinery and artillery.”
