Named for 'Jasper' Jack Cohen of Jasper Auto Parts, the Jack Cohen Tappet Cover Challenge will pit AARDA members against one another in friendly competition.

Calgary, Alberta -- May 9, 2018 -- When the Alberta Automotive Recyclers and Dismantlers Association meets for its annual conference next September, they will honour a fallen member in what is, perhaps, the most appropriate way imaginable for an auto recycler -- with a tappet cover race.

Named for 'Jasper' Jack Cohen of Jasper Auto Parts, a recycler and active AARDA member who died in September 2017, the Jack Cohen Tappet Cover Challenge will see recyclers racing Pinewood Derby-style vehicles, but with valve cover from an car engine, rather than wooden blocks.

The excitement may serve as a welcome break from the more business-like proceedings of the annual conference, which will be held in Drumheller Alberta at the Canalta Jurassic Hotel and Conference Center in September 2018.
