Destin, Florida, March 11, 2022 – Velocity Automotive has received a “Highest Rated” Inventory Management Award and a “Top Rated” Digital Retailing Award in the eleventh annual DrivingSales Dealer Satisfaction Awards, presented at a special event today in conjunction with the 2022 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention & Expo.
