Parts Plus promo awards '57 Chevy truck

Posted on April 8, 2014

The Parts Plus division of The Automotive Distribution Network will award Clay Millican’s ’57 Chevy truck and a 2015 Chevy pickup to two service dealers as part of a nationwide sweepstakes promoting its 2015 National Convention in New Orleans Feb. 26-March 1.

“We’re awarding two grand prizes that every car guy would be thrilled to have,” says Mike Lambert, president of the Network and a New Orleans native.

It doesn’t get any better than the classic ’57 Chevy pickup driven by the Network’s six-time World champion drag racer and a brand-new Chevy. As we say back home, ‘Laissez le bon temps rouler [Let the good times roll].’”

From June 1 through Nov. 30, 2104, service dealers around the country become eligible by making qualifying product purchases from their Network supplier. Weekly and monthly prizes include iPads, flat-screen TVs and autographed Clay Millican hats.

Five shops will then be drawn as winners of a trip to New Orleans and the 2015 Network National Convention. On the final convention night, two finalists will be determined as winners of the Chevy pickups, including Millican’s pride and joy.

“I guess you could say it’s been a passion of mine,” says Millican, driver of the Parts Plus Top Fuel dragster.

“With me on the road so much, I wanted the ’57 Chevy to go to people I trust to take care of it -- namely, one of the Network’s best service dealer customers.”

The Automotive Distribution Network program group operates under the brands of Parts Plus, Parts Plus Mexico, IAPA and Auto Pride.
