Fields was followed by Travis Crebs of Techna Glass in Taylorsville, Utah, in second and Nick Gittins of Techna Glass in Clearfield, Utah, in third place in the AGTO.

The winners of each event takes home $10,000 as part of his winnings.

In addition, Gittins was recognized with the Ray Asbery Innovation Award for his development and use of modifications to his setting tool. The award was dedicated to Asbery this year, in honor of the innovation brought to the industry by the founder of Equalizer, who passed away last year.

Both awards were announced during the Gala Awards Reception and Ceremony held on the final day of Auto Glass Week.
