Federated Member Arnold Oil Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Federated Shop of the Year, American & Import Auto Repair

STAUNTON, Virginia, March 23, 2017 - In honor of its 40th anniversary, Federated member Arnold Oil Company of Austin recently held a special event for its employees, customers and vendor partners at its headquarters in Austin, Texas.

As part of the milestone celebration, a booth show featuring over 100 vendor partners was conducted and gift bags were given to the first 500 guests in attendance. Arnold Oil guests were treated to lunch and dinner and were eligible to win more than $25,000 worth of prizes, including Act Fast Delivery’s club seats at a San Antonio Spurs basketball game, a Cub Cadet riding lawn mower, a 20-inch double lid smoker, and diecasts and caps signed by NASCAR star Jeff Gordon. Steve Berry, owner of several Christian Brothers locations in Austin, was the grand prize winner and will choose between a trip to Jamaica or Disney World.

Arnold Oil guests had the chance to meet Federated spokesperson and NASCAR legend Kenny Schrader at the show. Schrader was also scheduled to race at the Cotton Bowl Speedway while in town, but the weather didn’t allow for that or for Arnold Oil’s four days of “Get Dirty with Kenny” dirt track driving experiences.

“A big ‘thank you’ to the team at Arnold Oil and our vendor partners for all their hard work to make our 40th Anniversary an event to remember. As always, I especially want to thank all of our valued customers for their loyalty and support over the past 40 years,” said Jim Arnold, president and CEO of Arnold Oil.
