Norm Miller, principal owner of Interstate Batteries, recalled that in the early 1980s, their competitors were trying to establish independent distributors mimicking the way Interstate had pioneered (e.g., service stations and auto repair garages). Those competitors decided to have a convention.

“We decided we needed to pray.” Interesting choice. When confronted with an unknown, the first disposition of Norm’s heart was to pray.
