GREENEVILLE – May 14, 2013 –Kykers Extreme Automotive is pleased to announce a special visit from former employee and now famed “Counting Cars” crew member, Scott Jones, on Friday, May 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A former resident of East Tennessee, Jones began his career in the automotive industry working for Dale Kyker, owner of Kykers Extreme Automotive. Now, many years later, Kyker is proud to invite him back for a special meet and greet with customers.
“We will be launching official Count’s Kustoms merchandise for sale in our store as well as Scott’s new t-shirt line,” said Dale Kyker, owner of Kyker Extreme Automotive. “We are really proud of all that he has accomplished over the years and are his biggest fans. Our whole team tunes in every week and so do our customers.”
Known by fans for his gruff ways and loud disputes on the show with shop owner and lead crew member Danny “Count” Koker, Jones excels as the shop manager of Count’s Kustoms. His no-nonsense focus on the bottom line helps keep things running smoothly and accounts for the shop’s financial gains. His main responsibilities are managing the budget and keeping track of inventory. Following his appearance in Greeneville Jones will head to Charlotte, NC to join the rest of the “Counting Cars” team at the HISTORY 300 being held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“It’s surreal to be able to come back to Greene County and be the person everyone wants to meet,” said Scott Jones. “The success of the show and support from fans has blown us all away. Way back when I was working for Mr. Kyker never once did I imagine that someday I’d be coming back to do a special appearance and meet with fans. It’s really exciting that the Kyker family is so supportive of the show and that their shop will be one of the first places to launch my new t-shirt line.”
