      Like many product lines in our inventories, brake pads are often dual or even triple lined. To service a wide variety of vehicles and customer types in a dynamic market, it has become a necessity to offer various price points on one of the most critical safety items we offer. 
      Price is only one of the criteria we should be using to determine the most appropriate product for the customers’ needs, but it is the one that seems to get the most attention. Too often, price is quoted as shorthand for quality, and we present a good/better/best option based on their price points. Rather than presenting the features and benefits of each product, we often gloss over the “how and why” in favor of the “how much.” When we present items in this manner, we commoditize them, leading the customer to believe there is very little difference between the products, aside from the amount of money they are going to spend today. Often, the value derived from improved performance and longer lifespan of the better-quality product exceeds the difference in price between it and the lesser-priced equivalent. 
      For brake pads, the composition of the friction material is the first area where quality really counts. Beyond the basic “semi-metallic” vs. “ceramic” terminology lies a complex chemistry of elements that created a slab of material that is expected to provide excellent stopping power in all driving conditions without squealing or leaving dusty residue on your customers’ wheels. Premium brake friction material is often designed with specific applications and usage in mind. The friction formulation of a “ceramic” pad intended for a commuter sedan will be different than a ceramic pad intended for a police pursuit vehicle, or even a full-size truck that is used commercially. The entry-level pad manufacturer may take a more “universal” approach, with the friction material providing average performance across a wide range of appli-cations, but underperforming in critical areas where a premium pad would give better longevity and quality of service. 
      Beyond the friction material, the backing plate is another area where you get what you pay for. Galvanized, E-coated or powder-coated backing plates have better corrosion resistance than those plates treated with a simple coat of paint. When corrosion creeps between the pad material and the backing plate, a phenomenon known as rust-jacking can weaken the bond between materials, leading to pad delamination. Premium pads also are more likely to feature an attached shim, which can help reduce the vibrations that cause squealing.
      NVH complaints are also commonly caused by reusing existing pad retaining hardware, or eliminating it altogether. Unfortunately, I have seen more than a few instances of poorly-stamped or thickly painted backing plates preventing the pad and hardware all fitting correctly into the caliper bracket. Some folks resort to grinding or filing away the edge of the backing plate, creating another path for corrosion down the road. Worse yet, others entirely omit the stainless hardware clips, resulting in a clunk or rattle with every pedal application. It continues to baffle me that some entry-level (and even mid-grade) pad pack-ages still do not include hardware, even though they are a critical part of a complete disc brake job.
      Electronic brake pad wear sensors are an increasingly common design feature, either molded directly into the friction material, or clipped into the backing plate of one or more pads. In my own opinion, the ideal premium brake pad set should include friction material purpose-built for the intended application, a good quality shimmed and coated backing plate, the necessary installation hardware, electronic wear sensor (if equipped), and any included warranty should be commensurate with the intended service life of the pads.
      When it comes to premium products, it is often these “extras” that people don’t consider when comparing them to lesser brands. Application-matched friction materials, manufacturing and design features that ensure a long and trouble-free service life, as well as the convenience of having all the necessary components collected into one package, saves the customer time and labor initially, and over the (longer) life of the product, actually provides more value per mile than lesser competitive products.

      Chase Elliott and the No. 9
      link hidden, please login to view team started 15th in Sunday’s NASCAR All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro Speedway after Saturday’s heat races were rained out and the lineup was set by qualifying results. When the first caution flag of the race came out on lap two, Elliott was scored in the same position in which he started. Under the yellow, crew chief Alan Gustafson called the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series champion to pit road for the primary tire option after starting the race on the soft tire option. Elliott restarted 16th on lap 11 and found himself inside the top 10 for the first time of the race on lap 41. The Dawsonville, Georgia, native battled with the ninth-place driver for several laps, but he couldn’t make the pass before the scheduled lap-100 caution occurred. The field came to pit road for mandatory pit stops, with the No. 9 team opting for the soft tires it had on earlier in the race. A fast, four-tire stop by the NAPA Racing crew gained Elliott two spots on pit road, and he lined up eighth for the choose cone, taking the inside lane for the restart on lap 109. The Hendrick Motorsports driver continued to battle inside the top eight and was scored in the seventh position when an on-track incident brought out the yellow flag on lap 118. Staying out on the track under the caution, Elliott lined up on the inside lane for the lap-124 restart and was running in the ninth spot when the second scheduled caution slowed the race on lap 150. Elliott relayed that his NAPA Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 needed more security, so the team made a chassis adjustment during its pit stop for four soft tires and fuel.
      With some teams opting to pit for only two tires, Elliott lined up 12th for the choose cone and took the inside lane for the restart on lap 159. From there, he pressed forward and moved back into the top 10 on lap 165. He managed to gain two more positions before the checkered flag waved, claiming an eighth-place result in the 200-lap all-star event. It was Elliott’s second consecutive top-10 finish in the exhibition event and seventh top-10 overall in nine All-Star Race starts, which includes his 2020 victory at Bristol Motor Speedway when he took home the $1-million prize.
      Start / Finish: 15 / 8
      Points Standing / Total: 4th / 437 pts. (-49)

      RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Advance Auto Parts (NYSE: AAP), a leading automotive aftermarket parts provider, the official auto parts retailer of NASCAR, and official partners of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and Indianapolis Motor Speedway, is kicking off the summer travel season by offering its Speed Perks loyalty rewards members the chance to win a bucket-list motorsports experience to “Do the Double.”
      This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:  link hidden, please login to view
      On May 26, Advance will send one winner and their guest on a free VIP experience to attend the 108th running of the famed Indianapolis 500 before traveling to North Carolina to watch the Coca-Cola 600, one of NASCAR’s crown jewel events, held at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fans can enter for their chance to Do the Double from May 1-12 at  link hidden, please login to view. Race fans can enter up to three times per day during the program.
      To be eligible to win, entrants must be members of Advance’s Speed Perks loyalty rewards program. Speed Perks is free to join, and upon signing up, new members will receive $5 off their first in-store or online purchase of $20 or more. Race fans can sign up for Speed Perks at  link hidden, please login to view.
      For race car drivers, doing the double involves competing in both the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 in the same day. It is one of the most challenging feats for any race car driver to attempt, given the significant differences between open-wheeled INDYCAR SERIES cars and NASCAR stock cars. In fact, only four drivers have completed the double since 1994.
      This includes three-time NASCAR Cup Series™ champion Tony Stewart, who won the 1997 INDYCAR SERIES title prior to beginning his hall-of-fame NASCAR career. Stewart is partnering with Advance on  link hidden, please login to view and is the perfect ambassador for the program.
      Stewart has done the double twice. His first attempt came in 1999 when he became the first driver to complete both races in the same day, finishing ninth and fourth, respectively, in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600, driving a total of 1,090 miles.
      Stewart repeated this feat in 2001 and bettered his mark from 1999. He finished on the lead lap in sixth at the Indianapolis 500 before jetting off to Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600. He improved that finish as well, coming home third in the 600-miler. Stewart completed all 1,100 miles – breaking his own record for most racing miles driven in a single day.
      “This is the chance of a lifetime for a fan to also complete the double by having a front-row seat at the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600,” Stewart said. “Advance Auto Parts has put together a fantastic program that is truly unique. Doing the double is history in the making and thanks to Advance, a fan and their guest will get to experience it all in real time. They’ll both be able to say, ‘I was there.’”
      “Historically, doing the double has been a journey reserved for only the world’s most talented and dedicated race car drivers, like Advance brand partner Tony Stewart,” said Junior Word, Advance’s executive vice president, U.S. stores. “Now, one lucky Speed Perks member will have the unique opportunity to ‘get in the driver’s seat’ to experience their own version of the double. Advance is thrilled to work alongside our partners at NASCAR, INDYCAR and Indianapolis Motor Speedway to give two race fans the memory of a lifetime.”
