The last few years have shown us one thing about the independent repair market: There are some really great shops across the country.

It’s time for you to show us just now good your shop is, as Motor Age launches its 2011 Top Shops contest. The contest is open through Aug. 19, 2011, and there’s no time like now to get started on entering.

We’ve listened to readers this year, as well, and have revamped the contest entry process. This year in order to enter, you will be required to answer nine questions describing your business in a simple-to-complete form. Judges will score each shop on 10 categories: experience, training and education, shop operations, supplier relations, marketing, website presence, aftermarket involvement, community activities, technical offerings and a photo tour of the shop.

Visit for complete details.
