Chester, Pa.—Wells Fargo Auto Finance has announced the 49 recipients of its Stagecoach Award for the Third Quarter of 2006.

The Stagecoach Award was first awarded in March of 2005 as a way to recognize Wells Fargo Auto Finance’s best automotive dealers. Recipients of this award were selected from nearly 21,000 dealers across the United States.

“Formally recognizing our dealers and thanking them for the business they give us is very important to us,” said Gary Lorenz, president of Wells Fargo Auto Finance. “The Stagecoach Award is our way of acknowledging those dealers who have been particularly instrumental in making this past quarter a success.”
