Mike Mavrigian, editor of MTD's sister publication, Auto Service Professional (ASP), won a silver medal in the Technical/How to do it category for "Electronic fuel pump diagnosis."

ASP writer Bob Weber also came home with a medal. He won silver in the Technical/Reference category with his "Lift Update" story.

The purpose of the International Automotive Media Awards is to "recognize and encourage excellence in all forms of automotive media."
