October 09, 2013 // Franchising.com // Sycamore, Ill. – Grease Monkey International, Inc., which has recently expanded into Illinois, Minnesota, Tennessee and Wisconsin with the purchase of the LubePro’s chain, held its first annual Winners’ Circle Challenge National Pit Crew Competition on Thursday, Oct. 3 at the Grease Monkey™ location in Sycamore, Ill.

The challenge is part of the Certified Pit Crew Program that Grease Monkey™ developed to recognize the organization’s top performing technicians. In order for a Grease Monkey™ location to become a Certified Pit Crew, the location must meet a strict set of criteria including top scores on the technician required certification courses and competitive time trials on the Full Service Oil Change. Locations that become certified are eligible to participate in the annual Winners’ Circle Challenge, which consists of Area, Regional and National competitions.

The National Champions, Pit Crew #687 from Parker, Colorado completed their Full Service Oil Change with the fastest time. The crew received a cash prize, leather jackets, recognition patches on team member racing crew uniforms, individual trophies, and a travelling trophy to be displayed in the winning team’s location for one year. The center is owned by franchisee Ron Morrow from Longmont, Colorado.

Pit Crew #782, owned by Randy Hargrove and Joshua Hargrove, finished in second place and received a cash prize and individual trophies. The Hargroves and their crew are from Murray, Kentucky.

The checks and trophies were presented to the winners at the conclusion of the event, and a cocktail reception was held Thursday evening to recognize their accomplishments.
