NCC Sponsor Spotlight

Matt Curry's Craftsman Auto Care
By Mike Bevels

W

elcome to the first National
Capital Chapter (NCC)
Sponsor Spotlight! This is
a new series of articles that gives
der Bayerische (dB) readers a closer
look at our sponsors: what services
they offer, what drives and inspires
them, and their community involvement. In this issue we will learn
more about Matt Curry's Craftsman
Auto Care.
I had the pleasure of meeting
with Matt and Judy Curry, owners of
Craftsman Auto Care, at their newest
location in Merrified, Virginia on a
bright, beautiful Saturday morning.
Craftsman Auto Care was formed in
2017 from the experienced Curry's
Auto Service team. There are now
four Virginia locations that include
Arlington, Fairfax, Chantilly, and
Merrified. All are state-of-the-art

12

facilities equipped to handle everything from routine maintenance to
performance modifications and
tuning. Matt, Judy, and Craftsman
Auto Care are active sponsors
of several NCC programs including
HPDE,
Do-It-Yourself,
and
Concours events.
During my time speaking with
Matt and Judy, it was clear that they
are very passionate about their
work. Matt said his favorite things
about this job are "helping people
and solving problems". Matt is also
very passionate about racing. Matt
and his Craftsman Auto Care team
are currently campaigning a 2000
BMW 328ci (E46) in the American
Endurance Racing (AER) series.
Matt and his technicians have been
able to take what they have learned
on the track and apply it to the work

being done at Craftsman Auto Care.
I can only imagine what a series of
eight-hour endurance races will
teach someone about vehicle diagnostics and maintenance as well as
tuning suspension, steering, power,
and performance!
The Currys very much believe
in "Show-'n-Tell Service". Judy
said that customers are always
welcome to come inside the shop to
see what issues the technicians have
found. In addition to having an
open shop, Matt gave me a demonstration of their "Digital Car Care
Inspection" software. Each technician has a tablet which they use to
write up and photograph issues
found during an inspection, building a digital profile of the vehicle.
The customer is sent a link to the
technician's detailed inspection

report: a well-organized webpage of
text and photos that details the
issues that need to be addressed.
The customer is able to see what the
Craftsman Auto Care technicians
see. While Craftsman employs ASE
Certified Master Technicians with an
average of 30 years of experience,
they are also training a new generation of technicians that have excellent IT skills as well as mechanical
and diagnostic skills. Judy said that
one of Matt's strengths is "spotting
talent and putting a team together".
Along with their NCC involvement, Matt and Judy are an inspiration and driving force in the
community by "giving back" via a
number of avenues. Craftsman Auto
Care works with Fairfax County
Public Schools (FCPS) to provide
an apprenticeship program for
