CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Oct. 11, 2002)—American Tire Distributors (ATD) has announced three tire dealer winners in its HeafNet Rewards first anniversary sweepstakes.
Jimmy Maners, owner of Drum's Tire & Battery in Rock Hill, S.C., won the 1-million point grand prize. Forest Ratchford, owner of Ratchford Tire in Clarksville, Tenn., won the 100,000-point first prize, and Gene Boseck, wholesale manager of Tom Wilson Inc. in Bowie, Md., won the 10,000-point second prize.
More than 2,500 dealers are participating in HeafNet Rewards, a program that rewards dealers for using HeafNet Online, ATD's e-service offering.
Dealers earn points for every dollar they spend when they order tires, wheels and related products from HeafNet Online. Sweepstakes drawings were supervised by KS Promotions Inc. of Carlsbad, Calif.
“Winning the sweepstakes is a nice surprise,” Mr. Maners said. “My wife and I will probably use the points for appliances and maybe a cruise; there are a lot of things to choose from.”
