Mechanics are important all year round, all the time, but during a pandemic when it's been 90 degrees for a whole month, they definitely deserve to be celebrated!

Throughout the month of August (we're getting a little bit of a head start we know...) we're looking for Rockford's #1 mechanic.

This does not mean you have to work in the city limits of Rockford, just that you are in the 97ZOK listening area.

You have until 2 p.m. on Monday, August 17th to vote your favorite mechanic into the Top Five. Tuesday, August 18 just after 8 a.m. on the Steve Shannon Show we will reveal the next round.

Good luck!
