Happy Birthday Bill!

Happy Birthday Bill!

This week at Graham Auto Repair we got to celebrate another Birthday! Bill joined our Team at Graham Auto Repair in August 2020.

Bill started out in the Automotive Industry back in 1998. He took every Auto Shop class that was available to him in High School because he wanted to learn how cars work. He loves to learn about all of the new technologies that come out on newer cars each year. In High School Bill really got into watching Motorsports, which led him to start Autocross Racing. He has competed nationally with SCCA (Sports Car Club of America). In 2017 Bill earned the Street Touring Ultra ProSolo Championship and in 2018 he earned the Street Touring Ultra National Championship. From Spring through Fall all of Bill's free time is spent on Autocross. Bill's other hobby is singing and he l ... read more
