The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance presented car keys to the three grand prize winners of the Kentucky Horsepower Corvette Giveaway sweepstakes on May 19.
The three Stingray Corvette winners are Donald Addison, Jason Kool and Jason Kozak. The Corvettes were provided by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper stores.
Jason Kool of Jays Speed Shop Inc., a customer of Central Auto Parts Distributors in Calgary, Canada, won a black Corvette.
Donald Addison of Stonewall Tire and loyal Piston Ring Service Supply customer in Winnipeg, Canada, won a white Corvette.
Jason Kozak of Mr. Muffler and Auto-Wares Inc. of Macomb, Mich., won a torch red Corvette.
Kozak said, “It was such an amazing opportunity, and I am so thankful to Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper! I’ve always been a corvette guy, and winning the red stingray convertible is my dream car! Can’t wait to get it back to the motor city and cruise Woodward. Thank you so much to the Washbish family and your team; you have been amazing hosts!”
The once-in-a-lifetime experience for these professional technicians started when 25 grand prize winners and their guests arrived at the Louisville Marriott Downtown.
On Friday the attendees travelled to Bowling Green, Kentucky, to visit the National Corvette Museum
The party continued in Louisville at the Frazier History Museum courtesy of Valvoline.
On Saturday the group experienced a full day of thoroughbred racing at Churchill Downs from their very own Winner’s Circle Suites. At the track, race number five’s winning mount, First Spring, was awarded the Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper Cup by several of the trip members.
The day concluded with the Corvette Giveaway ceremony at the Kentucky Derby Museum.
All grand prize winners had a chance to win one of three brand new Corvettes provided by Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper as they each unwrapped a die cast replica Corvette. Twenty-two people were holding a yellow die cast Corvette as a momento. This left the three winners holding a white, black or red miniature replica of the Corvette they just won.
