50 Great Years – 1 Awesome Party!

We opened our doors 50 years ago, in 1964, and we decided we needed to do a bit of celebrating. We invited you out, and you came through big time this past Saturday, helping us throw the fastest party Downtown Sherman has ever seen!

Clay Millican was on hand signing autographs and showing off his bad hot rod, our awesome Parts Plus partners W M Automotive warehouse came out with a parking lot full of tools, Wix Filters brought a truckload of giveaways that included some awesome Richard Petty Driving Experience passes, and a number of our awesome customers came with their beautiful cars.

It was a day we will never forget, and we want to thank everyone that has played a part in the 50 year history of Acme Auto Parts for making it possible!

Parts Plus to back Millican for full 2012 NHRA Top Fuel Season

Fantastic news this week as it’s been made official that Parts Plus will again be riding along on Clay Millican’s 300+ mph NHRA Top Fuel dragster for the full 23-race NHRA season. We enjoyed watching the team last year, and are looking forward to seeing things come together with the full calendar this year. Head over to Aftermarket News for the full announcement.

As we predicted when the announcement was made last year, Clay did a spectacular job flying the Parts Plus colors, even on a limited schedule. ESPN’s cameras gravitate toward him, and Clay does an excellent job interacting with fans as only he can, both in the pits and online via Twitter and Facebook.

Good luck to Clay and everyone on the MPE Motorsports Parts Plus Top Fuel team, we can’t wait to see the car at The Motorplex in Ennis this fall!
