IHS, Auto Care Association Hosting Webinar Series

The Auto Care Association has teamed up with IHS Automotive to present a new Industry Analysis Webinar Series. The series will feature industry experts discussing issues facing the automotive industry.

The first webinar in the series – “A Decade of Change – Lightweighting the Key to Compliance” – will be presented by Michael Robinet, managing director of automotive advisory services at IHS Automotive. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, June 28, at 2 p.m. ET.

Emissions standards in the U.S. and around the world are driving OEMs and suppliers to strive for increased vehicle efficiency in the form of more efficient powertrains, reduced mass and increased aerodynamics through the use of lighter materials and electrification, the Auto Care Association said. In the first webinar, Robinet will discuss the challenges facing both the OE and aftermarket industries and the various solutions OEMs and suppliers are implementing.

The Industry Analysis Webinar Series will include six webinars, scheduled between June and December 2016.

All webinars are open to Auto Care Association members. Register by visiting bit.ly/IHSWebinarEmissions. For more information, visit autocare.org/industry-analysis-webinars.

Team Falken driver Justin Hall secured a first-place finish in the 4500 class racing with the Wildpeak R/T race tires in the 4500 class and Edwin Abd of ABD Motorsports took third in the 4400 class racing with the Wildpeak M/T race tires.

At the start of the event, Hall was unable to participate in the qualifying race due to one of his crank seals pushing out. To resolve the issue, he put silicone on it and let it set overnight so it would be good to go for the main races. Not participating in the qualifying heat put him behind the competition in the first heat. Team Falken said starting from the back was only a minor inconvenience for Hall. Throughout the whole race, the silicone held up well and Justin was able to pass the competition in the first heat, securing a first-place lead.
