Iowa parts store owner wins 2015 pickup
Greg Meckley from Meckley's Parts and Service in Melbourne, Iowa, won a 2015 pickup truck of his choice as the first of four grand prize winners in the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance’s (AAPA) “big game tailgate party” sweepstakes.
Greg is a loyal customer of AAPA member The Merrill Company and its Marshalltown Arnold Motor Supply Store.
“I couldn’t believe it,” Meckley said upon learning he had won, “I never win anything.” He plans to equip and use the new truck as a tow vehicle to support his business. “This is neat,” he said. Winners were allowed to select the make and model of their choice from any manufacturer of full sized pickup trucks. Meckley chose a Dodge Ram 1500.
Meckley’s name was drawn from over 150,000 entries. In addition to the pickup truck winners, more than 100 other lucky sweepstakes winners are attending the tailgate party in Glendale, Ariz. The private tailgate party starts the morning of Feb. 1, 2015, at a clubhouse just a short walk to the University Of Phoenix/Glendale Stadium, the site of the game. There will be food, beverages, fun and games and even a football celebrity or two. After the game, it’s a short walk back to rejoin the party where one lucky attendee will win the fourth truck to be given away.
