ITEM 5.02 Departure of Directors of Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

Subsequent to filing the proxy statement in conjunction with its 2007 annual meeting of stockholders, Advance Auto Parts, Inc. (the “Company”) received comments from a third party shareholder services company regarding the request that stockholders approve an amendment to the Company’s 2004 Long Term Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). The Company’s proposal includes a request for stockholders to authorize an additional five million shares for issuance in connection with awards made to eligible participants of the Plan. The shareholder services company has indicated that the total shareholder value transfer will exceed the level it considers to be appropriate for the Company when the requested five million shares are included in the calculation.

The Company believes that reducing the number of shares reserved for grant under the Plan will cause the shareholder value transfer calculation to meet the 10 percent limit recommended by the shareholder services company. Because the Company continues to believe that approval of the Plan amendment is important to the Company’s compensation strategy, effective May 9, 2007, the Company’s Board of Directors has adopted a resolution whereby, subject to approval of the proposed plan amendment by the Company’s stockholders, the Company will increase the authorized reserve of shares available for issuance of awards under the Plan by only three million shares, rather than five million shares. The Company will seek shareholder approval before further increasing the number of shares available for issuance of awards under the Plan.
