Autolite Reveals Completed Home Garage Makeover


Recommended Posts

Autolite announced the completion of its “Home Garage Makeover Sweepstakes” renovation for Sharon Ashmore of Stanley, North Carolina.

Selected from hundreds of entrants in a random drawing, Ashmore won a garage renovation project worth more than $10,000.

Over the course of three weeks, Garage Experts of Charlotte installed new flooring, cabinets and three-slat walls in Ashmore’s home garage. This project also included the delivery of a new air compressor, Autolite stools and a lighted vintage Autolite sign.

“Not only will my garage have more storage and free space to work, it’s now one of my favorite places to hang out in my home,” said Ashmore. “Garage Experts did a wonderful job – the brand-new flooring, sleek cabinets and Autolite accessories make for a polished, comfortable environment.”

The Autolite Home Garage Makeover Sweepstakes entry period ran from June through mid-August of 2021. The purpose of the sweepstakes was to celebrate how special home garages are for automotive DIYers and tinkerers of all kinds.

“We are so excited to see the finished project, courtesy of Garage Experts of Charlotte,” said Carl Weber, senior marketing director, First Brands Group. “Because of our passion for automotive maintenance and culture, it is an honor to make someone’s home garage a more useful, beautiful environment.” To see photos from the Autolite Home Garage Makeover Sweepstakes renovation, go to the Autolite

      Advance Auto Parts, entitlement sponsor of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series (NAAPWS), announced the return of its “Advance My Track Challenge,” a program that spotlights NASCAR’s short tracks in communities across North America.
      During the program, race fans are invited to vote for their favorite NASCAR home track, with the most popular track winning a $50,000 grand prize. The voting window is open on 
      link hidden, please login to view, with 21 NAAPWS tracks across the United States and Canada eligible to win. The first round of voting concludes Friday, May 6.
      The top six tracks receiving the most votes will move on to the final round, taking place May 9-13. The track with the most fan votes in the final round will win the grand prize, courtesy of Advance. The track finishing with the second-most votes will receive $15,000, and the third-place track will win $10,000.
      Teams at winning tracks may use winnings for facility enhancements or to establish community-based programs with schools, nonprofits or other local organizations.   
      “We are thrilled to bring the Advance My Track Challenge to race fans for a second year,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and e-commerce. “NASCAR’s home tracks and the Weekly Series play a critical role in our sport, giving local racers and future superstars the opportunity to put on a great show for their communities. This program helps advance historic grassroots racing venues while recognizing the communities with loyal and passionate racing fans.”
      “The Advance My Track Challenge is a great partnership with Advance Auto Parts that puts a well-deserved focus on our weekly tracks and the development of their infrastructure to enhance facilities in local communities,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR senior vice president, racing development & strategy. “Our roots in racing at the local level are a key part of NASCAR’s history and future success, and this is instrumental in engaging more fans at weekly tracks.”
      In support of the program, Advance My Track Challenge branding will be featured on Team Penske’s No. 12 Advance Auto Parts Ford Mustang driven by Ryan Blaney at this Saturday’s race at the Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Virginia.
       “Short-track racing has been part of my family for generations, and we’ve had great memories at the track,” said Blaney, a third-generation race car driver and seven-time NASCAR Cup Series race winner. “Ensuring the success of local tracks is something that’s important to me and my family, so it’s exciting to have a partner like Advance who is making it their mission to support NASCAR’s Home Tracks. We look forward to racing with Advance My Track Challenge on our Ford at Martinsville, one of NASCAR’s most iconic grassroots-style tracks.”
      The Advance My Track Challenge launched in 2021, with the $50,000 grand prize awarded to Berlin Raceway, a 7/16-mile paved oval track located just outside Grand Rapids, Michigan. More than 122,000 votes were cast by race fans during last year’s voting window.  
      Advance’s support of NASCAR’s home tracks extends beyond the Advance My Track Challenge. The retailer is using its season-long sponsorship of Blaney’s No. 12 Ford to showcase NASCAR-sanctioned short tracks across the United States and Canada. Each week, two different tracks will be featured on Blaney’s car. For every Blaney Cup Series victory, the winning track(s) on his car each will receive $1,200 from Advance. Through Blaney’s three NASCAR victories last season, Advance awarded winnings to six different NASCAR home tracks.

      Advance Auto Parts and Building Homes for Heroes, a national nonprofit (501)(c)(3) organization, recently announced home giftings to two military veterans and their families.
      Both families were in attendance for the announcement at the Supplier & Training Expo in Orlando, Florida, which was hosted by Worldpac, a subsidiary of Advance.
      Founded in 2006, Building Homes for Heroes gifts mortgage-free homes to injured veterans and their families, while providing support services that help them to build their post-service lives. Homes are specially designed to help each veteran live a more productive and independent life as a civilian.
      Since its inception, Building Homes for Heroes has gifted nearly 300 homes to our nation’s injured veterans. 
      One of the veterans receiving a home was U.S. Air Force Technical Sergeant Rahmeka Hopkins. Hopkins joined the military in 2004 because she felt it would be an honor to serve her country. She would do so for the next 15 years before being discharged in 2019.
      Following her service, Hopkins was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer attributed to chemical exposure. Hopkins also suffers from severe nerve damage and full-body malignant arthritis, which has confined her to a wheelchair. Hopkins and her family’s new home in Lakeland, Florida, will be catered to her needs as she continues her brave fight against cancer.  
      The second recipient of a mortgage-free home is U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Helbert Asprilla. Asprilla joined the Marines in 1997 to create opportunities for himself while giving back to a country that provided for him and his family. He would go on to serve two combat tours in Kosovo and Iraq before being discharged in 2004.
      The violence Asprilla witnessed throughout years of combat left him with severe PTSD.  Additionally, Asprilla suffers from bilateral tremors and tinnitus. Building Homes for Heroes gifted Asprilla, his wife and young son a new home in Cape Coral, Florida. 
      “At Advance, we know how important it is that we show our gratitude for our military heroes,” said Bob Cushing, executive vice president, professional, Advance Auto Parts. “In addition to employing thousands of military veterans throughout our company, our longstanding support of Building Homes for Heroes and heroes like retired U.S. Air Force Technical Sgt. Rahmeka Hopkins and retired U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Helbert Asprilla is one of the many ways we give back to those who have done so much for all of us.”
      “Our longstanding partnership with Advance Auto Parts continues to build better and brighter lives for so many of our nation’s heroes. Tonight, we added two more,” said Andy Pujol, founder and CEO of Building Homes for Heroes. “Retired U.S. Air Force Technical Sgt. Rahmeka Hopkins and retired U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Helbert Asprilla are the latest additions to our Building Homes for Heroes family and another milestone toward surpassing our 300th home later this year and our 400th home by 2024. We can’t wait to welcome these heroes into their new homes soon.”
      In 2021, Advance and its suppliers proudly raised approximately $1.5 million for Building Homes for Heroes, bringing the total contribution to nearly $17 million since 2011. The funds are used to build or modify homes and gift them, mortgage-free, to wounded veterans and their families, and many Advance team members participate in the home gifting ceremonies.
