Best of Speed Perks 2016

Take a look back at the all the exciting Speed Perks events we held in 2016. From Daytona Bike Week, to Coca-Cola 600 race day, to NFL Legends meet and greets, it’s been a great year for Members!


Several lucky members won VIP trips to either the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race at Charlotte Motor Speedway or the NASCAR Championships at Homestead-Miami Speedway. They were treated to an all-paid vacation and got to experience the race up close and personal, meeting drivers and touring the pit area.

Members enjoyed the exhilarating race in Speed Perks style. A highlight was meeting country singer Lee Brice backstage at the opening day concert.


As if being at the NASCAR Championships wasn’t enough, our members got to meet drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr., Alex Bowman (Advance Auto Parts #88 car), and Brandon Jones (Rain-X #33 car) at the track.

Atlanta Formula Drift

Driver Ryan Tuerck paid a visit to Advance Auto Parts before his Formula Drift race in Atlanta, inviting Speed Perks Members to the race for autographs and a tour of his ride.

Exclusive Events

Outside the track, members got to enjoy great experiences like meeting three NFL legends, riding with “Tig” and “Bobby” from Sons of Anarchy at Daytona Bike Week, and getting free gear from our partners.

Celebrating 15 Million Speed Perks Members

When we started Speed Perks two years ago, we couldn’t have imagined that we’d hit 15 million members. Thanks to you, we’ve done it! To join us in the celebration, take a look at what our dedicated community of drivers have achieved.

We’re blown away by how much work our Speed Perks Members do on their cars. Without a doubt, they’re the kind of DIYers we’d like to have as neighbors. If you’re not a member, join now!

Speed Perks: No cards, No points, No Nonsense.

Hey DIY Garage Readers—

I wanted to take a minute in between our regular blog schedule to tell you about a new program Advance offers that actually rewards you for working on your car.

Speed Perks is not your run-of-the-mill rewards program. First, there are no confusing rules, qualifications, or unworkable expiration dates to contend with. Better yet, you don’t have to deal with any complicated passwords, membership cards, or lengthy phone calls to have your password reset when you forget it (how many times has that happened?).

Instead, all you need to become a Speed Perks member is a phone number and an email address. That’s it. Done.

And getting rewarded is even easier. Here’s how it works:

  • For every $30 purchase, you’ll get $5 to spend on a future purchase of $10 or more
  • For every $100 purchase, you’ll get $20 to spend on a future purchase of $40 or more
  • You’ll get your rewards within a week by email or text
  • Speed Perks members will also receive exclusive deals and special offers

We all know how gratifying it is to work on our own vehicles and take on new car projects. So why not get rewarded for doing just that? Speed Perks makes purchasing the parts and tools you use most even more worthwhile.

Enroll in Speed Perks today and get rewarded — online and in-store.
