Ben an avid attendee of the Auto Show came to the show with Fiancée Sarah Miller specifically to look at Honda CR’V’s as their potential next vehicle.

You can imagine their shock when they actually won the vehicle they came to the show to see and research. Not only did they win the CR-V they also won the Yakima Cargo Box and Rack System displayed on the vehicle. The 2020 Honda CR-V was given away [...]

And the lucky winner is Jason Heffler who guessed the right year, make and model of the crushed car at this year’s auto show. There were many who got the right year make and model, but the differentiator was his guess at the mileage.... Jason was only off by 6,433 miles. For those who are curious, this years crushed car was a 2000 Chevy Malibu with 131,700 miles.
