Congratulate California's Own, Rookie Alexander
Rossi, who Just Won the 100th running of the
Indy 500.  Rossi, NAPA & Local Heroes = WINNERS

  Napa Alex Rossi Alexander Rossi Napa

NBS Sports INDIANAPOLISAlexander Rossi has won the 100th Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil and Sponsered by Napa Auto Parts, following a stunning strategy gamble from Bryan Herta and the Andretti Herta Autosport team that came good.

It’s a stunning upset but an incredible run for the No. 98 NAPA Auto Parts/Curb Honda, having made it 36 laps home on fuel on the final stint of the race.  Rossi (Homepage: started 11th but his final lap of the race – the 14th he led on this day – was only at 179.784 mph to limp home on fuel.  Rossi is the first rookie to win since Helio Castroneves in 2001. The win is Andretti Autosport’s fifth as a team: the first as Forsythe/Green Racing in 1995 with second year driver Jacques Villeneuve, then Dan Wheldon in 2005, Dario Franchitti in 2007 (Andretti/Green Racing) and Ryan Hunter-Reay in 2014 (Andretti Autosport).

But Rossi has been one of the pleasant surprises of the season, and his month at Indianapolis was close to flawless. He didn’t make a mistake all month, took to the track well, understood how to handle it and drove controlled all month.  The win with Herta follows up when Chaves won Rookie of the Year honors here last year with 16th place.

It might be one of the most incredible stories in Indy history… since the last time the ‘500 featured a 100 as part of its name.  The 100th anniversary race in 2011, the 95th running, saw Wheldon steal the win on the last lap – also driving for Herta – when J.R. Hildebrand crashed in Turn 4.

But this day, Rossi hung around – quietly – in the lower regions of the top 10  Had Rossi not been able to make it home, the win could have fallen to his teammate Carlos Munoz. The driver of the No. 26 United Fiber & Data Honda was flying in the final stages but, like most of the field, needed a late race splash as the race ran green for the final 32 laps.




INDIANAPOLIS (Friday, May 20) – Iconic auto parts retailer NAPA AUTO PARTS, parent to Napa Auto Parts in Petlauma, CA in conjunction with NAPA’s major supplier NAPA Balkamp and their supporting vendor partners, has joined with three-time Indy 500 champion Andretti Autosport to sponsor the No. 98 Indy car driven by Alexander Rossi in the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Rossi’s No. 98 machine is fielded via collaboration between the Michael Andretti-led organization and Bryan Herta Autosport.

Tip Tollison, President of NAPA Balkamp in Indianapolis, stated, “Andretti Autosport symbolizes the excellence NAPA AUTO PARTS has maintained for nearly 100 years. With this being the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500, I cannot think of anything that makes the historic event more complete than the joining of a premier racing family and a premier auto parts company.”

“We’re excited to begin a relationship with another storied American brand for this landmark event,” said Andretti Autosport CEO Michael Andretti. “This will be NAPA’s first time serving as a full primary sponsor in the Verizon IndyCar Series, and I’m honored to have Andretti Autosport chosen to represent their brand.”

The NAPA AUTO PARTS branding, which will also be carried as an associate sponsor on all Andretti Autosport Indy cars for the remainder of the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series, will make its Indy car racing debut as the field takes to the famed 2.5-mile oval Saturday for Indy 500 practice. Together on Saturday, both Rossi and NAPA will make their first ever Indianapolis 500 qualifying attempt live on ABC at 11 a.m. ET.

The Indianapolis 500’s 100th Edition will go green at 11 a.m. ET May 29 in front of a sold out Indianapolis Motor Speedway and live to viewers worldwide, with the US nationwide broadcast living on the ABC network.

Local Heroes Upgrades Corona Waiting Room & Office

We are pleased to announce some Nice Improvements to our Petaluma Corona Shop Location.  Specifically, we have recently remodeled our Customer Waiting Area and Office area.  The upgrade project was started over the Holidays and recently completed in mid January.  Most of the work was done in-house & all of our employees contributed in some way with the design and work.  It involved building new walls, closing in the ceiling, fresh paint, a new floor, upgraded electrical work & lighting, upgrading the customer restroom, upgrading the computer services & furniture.  One cool thing was taking the original entrance door to the original building when it was built & refinishing it & reinstalling it as the door to the restroom.  It originally came from a local farm building and is made of hardwood & estimated to be close to 100 years old.  

Please stop by and say hello.  We now offer hot coffee and drinks as well as cold beverages, Improved WiFi, TV and comfortable couches for when our customers wait to have their car repairs, Smogs, oil changes and tires done.  We also now stock Batteries, wipers, belts, all types of filters and other auto parts to cut down on the time our customers have to wait for simple services.

History of Local Heroes Auto Repair & Service in Petaluma, CA

We were established as Freddy Blues Local Heroes auto Repair in 1995.  It all started for Freddy when he was about 8. His Dad would fix all of their cars, and the neighbor’s cars too. He couldn't keep Freddy away. Fast forward 40 years and Freddy still can't keep away.  Originally only a mobile service, your "Local Hero", a term coined by a few of his first customers and many more since, he would fix the car where it broke.  He has now changed the name to Local Heroes Auto Repair & Service as it’s more than just him now, but rest assured our staff has the same passion Freddy has for quality. He has expanded and settled into 2 shops now in Petaluma on both sides of town. He has been in business 10 years now and looks forward to giving the community he grew up in the best auto repair available anywhere.  Always honest, always fair. His motto and the Local Heroes motto is: “Integrity is Earned One Job at a Time”.
