The cold winter months in Joliet, Ill. make it difficult to draw customers out to pull auto parts. Sean Krause, owner of Speedway Auto Parts, Ltd. (SpeedwayAP.com), found a way to make the experience a bit more comfortable for do-it-yourselfers.

Sean and his father Paul Krause received the go ahead from the Joliet City Council to turn an existing 60,000-square-foot building into an indoor self-service facility. It is tentatively scheduled to open in January 2011.

Mel Hunke, QRP Midwest (QRPMW.com) general manager, said Sean is a leader in state and national auto recycling organizations, contributing to the development of industry legislation.

Hunke added, "Sean isn't flashy. [He's] down to earth and the recycling industry is better for it."
