Annual award recognizing industry’s top auto repair shop owner kicks off.   

The Ratchet+Wrench All-Star Award, sponsored by AutoZone, is back. If you or a shop owner you know is considered one of the rising stars in the auto care industry, now is the time to make your case. 

Every September, Ratchet+Wrench honors one exceptional shop owner as its All-Star Award winner and recognizes two runners-up. Ideal candidates should be known for:

  • displaying great leadership
  • emotional intelligence
  • strong business acumen
  • having a winning shop culture
  • a passion for giving back to the auto care industry
  • a committment to the communities in which they live and serve


Why Should You Apply? 

Ratchet+Wrench is one of the most well-known automotive trade publications in the auto care industry. Those who win the prestigious Ratchet+Wrench All-Star Award earn distinction by being placed on the cover of the September issue with a dedicated feature story inside. They also will receive a free pass to the 2024 Ratchet+Wrench Management Conference to be officially recognized in the presence of their peers and be invited to teach a session on how they achieved their success.
