U.S. Auto Tech Natl. Championship Returns for 3rd Year

Garage Gurus and UNOH have signed multi-year agreements to be the official partners of the USATNC.

The U.S. Auto Tech National Championship (USATNC) is back, and Garage Gurus, training and support platform from Tenneco’s DRiV group, and the University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) are once again joining forces to support the prestigious event. Intersport, an independent marketing agency, announced both organizations have signed multi-year agreements to be the official partners of the USATNC, continuing their sponsorship from 2021-2022.

The competition offers two ways to enter. The first is the virtual Driven to Win quiz, where participants can test their total vehicle knowledge. Alternatively, they can participate in one of the three in-person qualifying events. The qualifying round is open from March 15 to July 31, 2023.

Those interested in competing in the USATNC can register at www.usatnc.com.

“Serving as an Official Technical Advisor for the US Auto Tech National Championship has been a very rewarding project,” said Charles ‘Trey’ Becker, director of business development at UNOH. “It is great to see both Student and Professional Automotive Technicians receive the recognition they deserve. The University of Northwestern Ohio is excited to continue our support for this great event in 2023 and hope to attract more young men and women to the Automotive Technologies industry.”

“DRiV and Garage Gurus are proud to be a part of this growing program,” said Rebecca Mahan, executive director of Americas marketing at DRiV. “Since year one, we’ve served as the Technical Advisors and Official Parts Sponsors which has allowed us to showcase our Gurus knowledge and abilities, as well as our premium product lines. We’re excited to keep watching this competition grow.”

The top 64 professionals and 64 students from the qualifying round will advance to the Round of 64 – a digital quiz, taking place from August 1-10. Quiz questions are provided by Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), a certification offered to automotive technicians that demonstrates their expertise and skills in automotive repair and maintenance. The 16 pros and 16 students with the highest scores will then move on to the Round of 16, where they will receive an At-Home Kit to complete a challenge. Participants must record and submit a video of themselves completing the task and will be judged on time, safety, and accuracy. This round will take place from August 14 to September 1, 2023.

The Finals will see the top four pros and four students receive an all-expense-paid trip to Tampa, FL, and will receive a VIP prize package with gifts provided by the sponsors. Each will compete live for their share of $100,000 in cash, along with the prestigious title of U.S. Auto Tech National Champion, Intersport, Inc. says.
