April was Distracted Driving Awareness Month and we are asking everyone to take the pledge to put the phone away and drive without distractions.

If you are not familiar with his story and the impact distracted driving has had on his family’s life, please watch the tribute story about Steve’s son, Mitchel, who lost his life last fall to a fatal car accident caused by a distracted driver.

However, instead of everyone trying to pick a correct bracket, we randomly drew the names of chosen dealers in each region and paired them up with college basketball teams competing in the 2017 NCAA Basketball tournament.  More…
