AutoNation Celebrates the Sale of its 10 Millionth Vehicle

"We could think of no better way to celebrate the industry-leading feat of selling our 10 millionth vehicle than by thanking those who made it possible, our customers," said AutoNation Chairman, CEO and President, Mike Jackson.  "We are pleased to be able to give away a vehicle in each of our three regions and look forward to continuing to provide a peerless customer experience."

The Central Region winners are Kat and Thomas Marr, parents of a large, multi-cultural adoptive family.  The Marrs have been married for 21 years and have 11 children, nine of which have special needs.  Mr. Marr is a former member of the United States Army having served for six and half years. He currently works in telecommunications for Ericsson, and Mrs. Marr is a homeschool teacher. The Marr family has faced many challenges over the years including a recent total loss of their current van which brought them in to AutoNation Ford Frisco for a replacement vehicle.

In connection with the multi-vehicle giveaway, AutoNation also announced a sweepstakes in which the grand prize winner will be given a 1 in 100 chance at winning $10 million. The grand prize winner will win a new Honda Accord should they not win the $10 million drawing. In addition, the grand prize winner and a select group of peer-nominated AutoNation associates will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Sonoma, California to be a part of the 2015 GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma.
