Call for Judges: Dealernews Top 100 Dealer Competition

Industry and retail professionals invited to serve on virtual judging panels to determine Top 100 Dealers and special IDEA Award winners

SUNBURY, OH – March 27, 2017 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Dealernews, the premier business information resource for North American powersports retailers, announces a Call for Judges for the 25th Anniversary Top 100 Dealer competition.

For the anniversary year, the Dealernews Top 100 Dealer program recognizes motorcycle and powersports dealerships across the United States and Canada for their Commitment to the Customer. Top 100 is a juried competition that awards Dealers for their efforts to promote the sport, the industry and the rider lifestyle in their markets.

The “Dealernews Top 100” is the largest non-affiliated competition of its kind in the motorcycle/powersports industry. Entrants are asked to demonstrate how well they execute on their stated mission statement or unique selling proposition (USP), so they are judged individually, against the goals they themselves establish.

ENTRY DEADLINE EXTENDED: The deadline for retailers to enter the Top 100 competition has been extended to 11:59 p.m. Monday, May 15, 2017. For more information, visit the competition website at

Professionals with powersports industry and/or retail and business experience are invited to volunteer to be on the Top 100 Judging panels. Judging is conducted online in late May and early June.
