LA QUINTA, Calif. — Custom Automotive Network, formerly known as Performance Warehouse Association, would like to congratulate Adrian Murray of Painless Performance Products for being named 2018 Person of the Year.

The prestigious award is voted on by CAN membership and recognizes someone who has made a significant contribution for the benefit of the custom automotive distribution system. The award was presented by Custom Automotive Network’s President Tracie Nunez at the 45th annual CAN Connect Conference on September 9, in Frisco, Texas.
