FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AutoNation, Inc. (NYSE: AN), America's largest automotive retailer, today announced an appearance on Velocity Channel's All Girls Garage with 2014 Indy 500 Champion, Ryan Hunter-Reay to promote AutoGear, AutoNation's new line of vehicle accessories. The episode will air this Saturday, September 1st at 11:30am.
Ryan Hunter-Reay appears on All Girls Garage to design and build a new Ford F-150, which will be auctioned by AutoNation to benefit its Drive Pink initiative and other cancer-related charities. The F-150 will be outfitted with over 10 top-selling AutoGear products, which both enhance the appearance of the vehicle but also the ride and handling.
AutoGear, AutoNation's unique retail vehicle accessory line, allows customers the ability to shop, configure and install top brand accessories to personalize vehicles.
"Velocity Network is the number one television network for automotive enthusiasts, so naturally it makes sense for us to team up with All Girls Garage," said Scott Arnold, Executive Vice President of Customer Care and Brand Extensions of AutoNation.
Arnold went on to say, "Ryan has been a big supporter of AutoGear, as well as our Drive Pink initiative. I cannot think of a better way to promote Drive Pink, Ryan Hunter-Reay and AutoGear than auctioning off a truck for a cancer-related charity."
AutoNation's commitment to community well-being and its fight against cancer, has garnered recognition from around the country, including being named one of America's top 100 Corporate Citizens by Forbes Magazine and Just Capital.
