STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - July 23, 2015 Add another major award to Bobby Alloway’s already impressive trophy case. An Alloway-built car won the 2015 Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year award at the 18th annual PPG Goodguys Nationals held July 10-12 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus, Ohio. The car, a gleaming 1937 Chevy coupe owned by Chuck Rowe of Millington, Tenn., was a crowd magnet and featured Alloway’s signature deep black PPG finish and rakish stance. Celebrated as “the master of black,” Alloway almost always paints his custom builds black.

The Chevy was built at Alloway’s Hot Rod Shop where he uses PPG products exclusively. This masterpiece wore its DELTRON® DBU 9700 Basecoat and DCU 2002 CONCEPT® Clearcoat finish beautifully. It was Alloway’s third time winning the award; in 2001 he took the honors with a ’33 Ford and in 2012 with a ’32 Ford. But multiple wins don’t make the experience any easier.

“The whole thing is nerve-wracking,” said Alloway. “It’s an honor to win, but you’re competing with the top builders in the world, so you can’t relax or get overconfident. You do the best you can, make the car look great and hope the judges recognize your work. I’m thankful they did.”

Alloway has been building timeless street rods since 1978, and his shop in Louisville, Tenn., has consistently produced award-winning vehicles. He is well respected for cars that sport an aggressive presence obtained through a blend of color, proportion and pure power—in this case an all-aluminum McLaren Chevrolet Big Block V8.

In addition to the Classic Instruments Street Rod of the Year awards, Alloway’s honors include the Goodguys Street Machine of the Year, America’s Most Beautiful Roadster, Autorama Builder of the Year and the Don Ridler Memorial Award. Earlier this year, the Chevy was named Best Hot Rod at the 2015 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, Calif. In recognition of his work, Alloway was inducted into the Grand National Roadster Hall of Fame this year and the Rod & Custom Hall of Fame in 2004.

The Goodguys Rod & Custom Association is one of the largest rod and custom associations, with nearly 70,000 members around the world. The association promotes and produces some of the world’s most dynamic automotive events including the annual Nationals show in Columbus, Ohio. The Goodguys Columbus Nationals is the organization’s biggest show of the year, with some of the top cars in the country competing for major awards. PPG is the official paint supplier to the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association. PPG exhibits at every national and many regional Goodguys events, displaying the hot colors, unique pigments, special-effect finishes and custom colors showcased in its Deltron products, VIBRANCE COLLECTION® and other brands.

Keep Your Matte Finish Looking Great! 

A low-gloss finish is different from other automotive paints. Unlike a standard high-gloss coating, damage to a low-gloss coating caused by scratches or aggressive cleaning cannot be polished or buffed out. Once an area becomes damaged or glossy, the original matte or low-gloss appearance cannot be restored. This care guide will help maintain your low-gloss finish. Click here to check it out today!

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - July 8, 2015 - PPG Automotive Refinish continues to support Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC), teaming up with the organization’s New Hampshire chapter to present the 2015 Track Walk on Saturday, July 18, at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in Loudon.

The walk takes place during the upcoming NASCAR weekend at the 1.058-mile racetrack, popularly known as the Magic Mile, and will be led by NASCAR driver and Daytona 500 champion Joey Logano. The event is set for 7:00 p.m., the night before Sunday’s New Hampshire 301. Logano drives the No. 22 Ford Fusion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for Team Penske and is currently fifth in the series point standings.

“Usually I drive around these tracks,” said Logano. “But this is one walk I’m happy to take. I hope a lot of fans come out and join me.”

PPG has been a major supporter of SCC since 2009, helping the charity organize and sponsor fundraising events.

“We take great pride in presenting this year’s Track Walk,” said Mike Patenaude, PPG regional sales manager. “The people at Speedway Children’s Charities are enthusiastic, motivated and work very hard. They really care about the kids they help. Together, we’re raising money for a worthy cause, and all of us at PPG are excited to be involved. We’re pleased Joey Logano will be walking with us.”

According to Cheryl LaPrade, executive director of the New Hampshire chapter of the SCC, more than 200 people took part in the 2014 Track Walk that raised nearly $13,000 for the charity. She urges everyone interested in the event to visit http://newhampshire.speedwaycharities.org/events/track_walk/ to learn more or to register. On-site registration and check-in is also possible Saturday at the SCC tent located in the display lot at NHMS. LaPrade emphasizes that all proceeds will benefit the SCC New Hampshire chapter.

SCC is based in Charlotte, N.C., and provides funding for hundreds of nonprofit organizations across the United States that meet the direct educational, medical, social and financial needs of children. SCC annually supports more than 400 organizations with generous grants provided through its eight chapters, with each chapter determining the needs of its surrounding communities and helping fund local organizations.

The organization was founded in 1982 by Bruton Smith, chairman of Speedway Motorsports, Inc., (SMI) and Sonic Automotive, as a tribute to Smith’s son, Bruton Cameron Smith, who died at a young age. The elder Smith was passionate about wanting to help children in need and established SCC to support local charities in communities around his SMI racetracks. Since it started, SCC has funded thousands of organizations that help children lead productive lives.
