O'Relly Auto Parts VIP Event
October 15 -16, 2008
The Crew Chief Club, LLC., working with Standard Motor Products, hosted a VIP experience for O’Reilly Auto Parts Regional Managers October 15-16th 2008 in Charlotte, NC. The top O’Reilly Regional Managers with the highest percentage of sales increase for BWD Select Wire Sets won the trip to NASCAR’s Hub city. The lucky winners were treated to dinner with Greg Zipadelli, Crew Chief for Joe Gibbs Racing’s #20 Home Depot Toyota, as well as legendary retired Crew Chief and current Fox Sports Analyst, Larry McReynolds.
During their visit, the guests were given personal, guided tours through the amazing race shops at both Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing. The guests each had some time behind the wheel on their own at the Jeff Gordon Racing School where they took part in the Winners Circle Driving Program. They each ran three 28-lap segments and between each segment the drivers were coached individually by their personal Crew Chief, Zipadelli, on what they could do to improve lap speeds.
