The University of the Aftermarket Foundation (UAF) has presented Bob Egan with the UAF Educational Advocacy Award.

This prestigious award recognizes an aftermarket leader for their dedication to the pursuit of excellence in education.

Egan served as chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation since 2017 and recently transitioned to the role of chairman emeritus. During his tenure, UAF saw record growth in the funding of scholarships and educational programs that pave the way for students to pursue and excel in careers in the aftermarket.

Egan retired from Federal-Mogul in 2015. During his esteemed 36-year career, he held a series of executive roles of increasing responsibility, most recently serving as senior vice president, sales and strategy. He played an instrumental role in the growth of Federal-Mogul, helping the company become one of the largest suppliers in the aftermarket.

Egan has been an active industry participant throughout his career. He served as chairman of the Auto Care Association, the Automotive Sales Council and the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association and Business Forum.

In 2008, the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association recognized Egan as Leader of the Year.

“Bob has had a very impressive professional career, and he has been dedicated to the success of the aftermarket through his leadership of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation,” said Roger McCollum, AAP, chairman of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation. “For the past six years, Bob has led UAF by example, actively participating in committees and reviewing countless scholarship applications each year. The UAF Educational Advocacy Award is rarely presented and there is no one more deserving to receive it than Bob Egan.”

      It was take two for High Limit Racing at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Arkansas, last week after the original date of April 9 was postponed due to heavy rain in the days prior. Race fans eager to see some 410 sprint car action packed the stands, leaving standing room only by the time Brad Sweet hit the track for hot laps in the
      link hidden, please login to view No. 49 machine. Sweet was lightning-fast right away, clocking a lap time of 11.266 seconds in qualifying, putting him in the top spot and within just two-tenths of the track record. It marked Sweet’s fifth QuickTime award on the season, all achieved within a ten-race span.
      As the evening unfolded, Sweet found himself starting fourth in his heat race, where he maintained his position to the checkered flag. Though finishing fourth, the Big Cat still earned a trip to the Dash as the fastest qualifier.
      Drawing the third starting spot for the Dash, the NAPA team had seven laps to gain a better starting spot and test their setup in the feature. Sweet mounted a thrilling battle for second but ultimately crossed the line in third. He lined up in that spot for the main event, and the feature went green. The NAPA driver navigated the track to the best of his abilities as the laps ticked by. With an extended mid-race caution, the No. 49 team tried to modify their strategy. Sweet faced fierce competition and a challenging track surface but brought the NAPA Auto Parts No. 49 to the finish line in fourth place.
      Start / Finish: 3 / 4
      Points Standing / Total: 2 / 662 pts. (-17)
      Next Race: Wednesday, May 1, 81 Speedway, Park City, KS
