Indycar Grand Prix of Long Beach

The winner of GB Reman's Grand Prix Giveaway, awarded at The Alliance Aftermarket Jackpot Convention, is gearing up for an unforgettable experience at the 49th annual Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Jon Hetzel, owner of Hesski ServiCenter in Levittown, PA, will join GB Reman in the company's hometown next month at the iconic Long Beach Grand Prix, one of the most prominent motorsport races in North America, renowned for its iconic street circuit course.

Initially selected as the winner of GB Reman's Grand Prix Giveaway during The Alliance Aftermarket Jackpot Convention at AAPEX 2022, Jon was unable to attend the initial giveaway trip in 2023. Committed to honoring the giveaway, GB Reman looks forward to hosting Jon and his guest at this year's race instead.

The Long Beach Grand Prix holds a special place in the hearts of the Kitching family. Since their first attendance at the inaugural race in 1975, Michael Kitching, President & CEO of GB Remanufacturing, and the late Bill Kitching never missed a year, creating a cherished family tradition. Nearly 50 years later, the Kitching family continues to attend the race without fail, anticipating the roar of engines racing down Long Beach's iconic Shoreline Drive every year.

Michael Kitching expressed the company's pride in being a supplier for the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, the Alliance Parts Warehouse, and Jon's local Eastern Auto Parts Warehouse, stating, “We are honored to host customers like Jon. We are eager to share one of our favorite traditions and look forward to welcoming Jon and his guest to Long Beach.”

As the winner of GB Reman's Grand Prix Giveaway, Jon and his guest will enjoy an all-inclusive trip, which includes:

  • VIP tickets to the 2024 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, offering access to a luxury viewing section with pit access, complimentary food and drinks, and various other amenities.

  • Round-trip airfare to Southern California for Jon and his guest.
