Lincoln Tech Recognizes Icahn Automotive For ‘Race To 2026’

Icahn Automotive — parent company to vehicle service providers Pep Boys, AAMCO and Precision Tune Auto Care, to name a few — has received the “Chief Executive Officer and President’s Pride in Partnership Award” from the Lincoln Technical Institute (Lincoln Tech).

The award recognizes Icahn Automotive’s “Race to 2026” program, which invests in and supports future automotive technicians through scholarships, partnerships with schools, and continuing education opportunities in an effort to fill the projected automotive technician gap.

The initiative — which distributed $50,000 in scholarships for automotive trade school students in 2019 — launched in February with branded classrooms and student events at technical training schools across the United States, including Lincoln Tech campuses in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
