According to Josh Kent, director of membership for NCACAR and SCACAR, “We have some of the industry’s biggest names speaking at our event with the headline speaker being Mike Anderson of Collision Advice.”


Saturday morning’s educational seminars will kick off from 9--11 a.m.


John Shoemaker, business development manager for BASF, will present “Damage Assessment Documentation.”

At 2 p.m., participants with VIP tickets to the Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race will take a bus to the Charlotte Speedway, where they’ll enjoy terrace seating, a concert, pit passes, a buffet dinner, drinks and more for just $250. From 3--5 p.m., Anderson will present a seminar back at the Cabarrus Arena for those who opt to not attend the race.


Kent will open Sunday’s session with an introduction to vendors and sponsors. Sponsor presentations will be delivered by PPG’s Matt Cremonni, Axalta’s David Rhoad Jr. and Carolina Collision Equipment’s Larry Brolsma. Next, NCACAR President Brian Davies and SCACAR President Sarah Myers-Daniels will provide updates and information on each association.
