“Congratulations to our winners and thank you to all of our players and sponsors for supporting today’s event,” said Scott Sampley, chairman of the NABC. “The real winners are those who we support through our programs — the families in need, military members, veterans and first responders. We’re honored to be able to give back to them and their communities through the collective work of the collision industry.”
