    This tournament offered bowlers the unique opportunity to compete for staff contracts from MOTIV Bowling. Bowlers from across the country came to Allen Park to compete on four different lane patterns including the PBA Wolf and Scorpion, USBC Masters, and a 40-foot flat US Open pattern over a two-day period.

    Lorincz took a commanding lead early in the tournament, but after a grueling second day, Kris Prather was able to grind his way to emerge victorious and win a spot on the MOTIV National Tour Staff.

    "Kris was not defeated" said Brett Spangler, MOTIV staff manager. "He went about his business and made shots like a true professional."

    Lorincz, who finished in second place, was also offered a fully paid MOTIV PBA staff contract. "Aaron exemplifies what MOTIV stands for," Spangler said.

    "His humility, kindness, unassuming nature, and world class game put him on our radar over two years ago. We will certainly benefit greatly from having Aaron on the team."

    Dan Knowlton, Scott Greiner, Brandon Hott, Jim Knoblauch, and Eric Tackett (pictured above with Prather and Lorincz) all earned unpaid MOTIV staff contracts at the conclusion of the event.

    "We wanted to make a 'family reunion' atmosphere where people from all aspects of the MOTIV family could have a chance to meet face to face. It brought me a lot of joy and I was very proud of entire team for the fact that everyone cheered for everyone else, from top to bottom.

    "Everyone was part of the MOTIV family and the event was better for each individual there, no matter where they finished."
