A valley dad is the lucky winner of a free car -- just in time for Father's Day!

Ernie Ruiz is this year's NAPA Auto Care Center's contest winner.  The single father of two has lived in the valley for over 30 years.

NAPA holds the contest every year to show their appreciation for customers, allowing participants to nominate a deserving individual to win a free car.

"Oh it was a very exciting day.  I just couldn't sleep last night just trying to wonder how it's all going to happen and all this meeting a lot of great people, especially the NAPA family and I really appreciate them giving back to the community," said Ruiz.
