Jennerstown Speedway Wins $50,000 From Advance Auto Parts


Recommended Posts

Jennerstown Speedway in Jennerstown, Pennsylvania has claimed the $50,000 prize as winner of the “Advance My Track Challenge,” a community engagement-based program led by Advance Auto Parts.

Jennerstown secured the most votes out of six NAAPWS (NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series) tracks participating in the final round of voting. Opened in the late 1920s as a dirt oval, the speedway was paved in 1987. Officially measuring as a .522-mile track, Jennerstown hosts NAAPWS racing and other racing series from April to October on an annual basis.

Jennerstown will be able to use the grand prize for capital facility enhancements and efforts to support the local community.

“Jennerstown is a true gem of the grassroots racing scene in Pennsylvania, and we’re proud to celebrate their team and community as winners of the Advance My Track Challenge,” said Jason McDonell, Advance’s executive vice president of merchandising, marketing and eCommerce. “Fans have supported racing at Jennerstown for generations and winning this challenge is a great example of their passion and dedication for their local track. We’ve enjoyed seeing how Advance My Track has been embraced by the racing community and we look forward to advancing grassroots racing in the years to come.”

Jennerstown also will host an Advance Auto Parts-themed night for race fans during an upcoming weekend of racing in 2022. As part of the Advance My Track Challenge, Advance awarded $15,000 to the track finishing with the second-most votes, Alaska Raceway Park in Palmer, Alaska. The track finishing in third, Adams County Speedway in Corning, Iowa, received $10,000.

“It’s great to see a historic track such as Jennerstown win the Advance My Track Challenge in their return to the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series family,” said NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Development & Strategy Ben Kennedy. “We know Jennerstown will use this award to continue to elevate the track and grassroots racing within the community, and we appreciate Advance’s continued dedication to supporting these facilities. Additionally, we’re looking forward to Alaska Raceway Park and Adams County Speedway taking advantage of their opportunity to build upon their strong foundation in their regions.”

The Advance My Track Challenge began April 5, with 21 NAAPWS tracks across the United States and Canada represented in the program’s first round of voting. Fans voted up to three times daily in the first round, which concluded May 6. The six tracks receiving the most fan votes took part in the final round of voting, from May 9-13.

More than 130,000 total votes were tallied during this year’s challenge.

Advance promoted the program through its partnership with the Team Penske organization and its driver Ryan Blaney, a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series race winner. He raced the No. 12 Advance Auto Parts Ford Mustang with “Advance My Track Challenge” branding at the April 9 Martinsville Speedway race and on May 9 at Darlington Raceway.

“First off, I’m excited for the team at Jennerstown,” said Blaney. “It’s a track that has meant a lot to my family. My grandfather raced there for many years, so it’s neat to see them win the Advance My Track Challenge. This is such an outstanding program, and I think it’s great what Advance is doing to support local race tracks. These tracks are all so important to their communities, and for local race fans, there’s no better value than visiting your local NASCAR track on a Saturday.”

      TNT Parts announced that it has added Lithonia, Georgia-based D&J Supply Inc. to its team through an acquisition.
      As a family-owned/-operated business for more than 45 years in east Atlanta, D&J brings a wealth of knowledge in the aftermarket heavy-duty truck-parts industry combined with a talented team delivering exceptional customer service.
      “We are thrilled to have a company of the quality of D&J join TNT Parts,” said Dale Herold, CEO of Tidewater Fleet Supply/TNT Parts. “Our continued goal is to be the customer’s first choice as the best provider for their heavy-duty truck and trailer and equipment parts needs. We are committed to exploring new ways to better serve our customers today and in the future. Partnering with D&J allows us to increase the number of customers we can reach and also positions us to take care of their other aftermarket parts needs.”  
      In a press release, Jeff Schubach and Dan Schubach, presidents of D&J Supply Inc., said: “We chose to join Tidewater Fleet Supply/TNT Parts because of their company culture. How they care for their employees and how they care for their customers was a perfect fit for us.”
      D&J Supply joining TNT Parts brings together two highly rated, honest and reputable local companies that care, and are perfectly positioned to support the needs of truck fleets and individual operators and repair shops in the Atlanta metro area, TNT added. Both companies are, and remain, part of VIPAR Heavy Duty, North America’s leading network of independent aftermarket truck-parts distributors.
      Hart Marx Advisors facilitated the acquisition. The financial terms of the purchase were not disclosed.

      Advance Auto Parts announced it has opened 22 new stores in the Los Angeles market as part of the company’s broader strategic expansion into the Western United States. 
      In spring 2021, Advance announced its plan to expand into California by leasing 109 Pep Boys stores and converting them to Advance stores, more than half of which are in the Los Angeles area. 
      “We estimate that 70% of our customers in Los Angeles fit the profile of the classic do-it-yourselfer. Pairing that with the more than 7.6 million registered vehicles in Los Angeles’ unique car culture, this is a tremendous opportunity for Advance to bring care and speed to motorists through expert advice and best-in-class products and services,” said Tom Greco, president and chief executive officer of Advance. “Our timing couldn’t be better as the average vehicle age increases while used car and gasoline prices are rising, resulting in greater demand for vehicle maintenance.”
      Vehicle owners in Los Angeles and other parts of the West will gain access to everything Advance stores offer, such as free curbside and in-store pickup within 30 minutes of ordering online, as well as some of the most trusted automotive brands in the world, including DieHard, the company noted. In response to the emerging popularity of hybrid and electric cars, Advance last month introduced the DieHard EV battery – the first-to-market 12-volt battery designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles and sold exclusively at Advance.
      Advance also will support local communities and professional technicians across California by employing approximately 1,850 team members in the state when all 109 stores are converted, including staffing the company’s newly opened 45,000-square-foot “super hub” flagship location, centrally located off the 10 and 110 freeways in the Pico Union neighborhood near downtown Los Angeles. 
      With a growing need to service the approximately 14 million registered vehicles in California, including an increased number of electric and hybrid vehicles, Advance also brings the ability for professional repair partners to expand their technical knowledge with virtual and in-person training opportunities, available through Carquest Technical Institute and Worldpac Training Institute, which are developed and taught by factory-trained instructors and available to automotive technicians nationwide, Advance noted.
