I-CAR Presents Honors for Exceptional Contributions to the Collision Repair Industry

Annual I-CAR Awards recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advancing the training and professionalism of the collision repair industry.

I-CAR announced the winners of its annual I-CAR Awards, which recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions to advancing the training and professionalism of the collision repair industry. The winners were revealed Nov. 2nd at a ceremony in the Paradise Ballroom at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino during the annual SEMA Show.

The Russ Verona Award, which honors a business that actively promotes training and a positive image for the industry, was awarded to Precision Unlimited CarCare of Clinton, N.Y., which has been a Gold Class recognized shop for 23 years. Owner Brad Czerkies was chosen for Precision Car Care’s commitment to training, their commitment to supporting I-CAR and their work in the community including support of a program that transitions high school students to careers, and civic engagement through organizations like the Boy Scouts of America, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Girls, Inc., which helps young girls learn the basics about cars.

The Jeff Silver Award, which honors an individual who demonstrates true passion for training and professional growth, was awarded to Jerry Dalton of Dalton Collision in Knoxville, Tenn. Dalton has actively been an ambassador of professionalism and training for the industry. He is the chairman of the Knoxville I-CAR committee and demonstrates his commitment to education by serving on the collision board at the Tennessee College of Applied Technology. Dalton Collision has held Gold Class recognition longer than any other collision repair shop in the state of Tennessee.

“I-CAR is proud to honor Brad Czerkies and Jerry Dalton for their outstanding contributions to the industry,” said John Van Alstyne, I-CAR CEO and president. “Through their hard work, selfless dedication and commitment to professionalism and volunteerism, they set an ideal example for everyone in the collision repair industry to aspire to.”
