May 12, 2022—The President of Tires Plus Total Care and Valvoline Instant Oil Change in Bismarck and Minot, North Dakota has acquired RaceDay Lube and Wash.
According to a press release, RaceDay Lube and Wash has two locations that serve the Bismarck/Mandan area and its surrounding communities.
The Race Day stores were a family-owned and operated business that began in 2007 when Al and Jay Braun opened their first location. The second location came to fruition in 2018.
President Jarid Lundeen resonates with this origin story.
“This acquisition of these two stores fits perfectly into our strategy for growth,” says Lundeen, according to the press release. “They’re family-owned, just like our stores, and they’re very well run. Jay has over 30 years of industry experience and I’m thrilled to have his wealth of experience on our team. This is a great opportunity to expand our services throughout the community.”
Jay Braun and his entire team will remain on staff, with Jay assuming an Operations Manager role.
The former RaceDay stores are being converted into Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations.
“Together, with what we both bring to the table, I feel we can really do something special in these North Dakota markets,” says Jay Braun, according to the press release. “There’s an opportunity for growth and I’m really looking forward to being a part of making this a great success.”
