Along the way, Jeff crafted his skills under his father. As Jeff grew up in the family business during the 1970s and 80s, he knew his father's vision was proven to be successful and has continued to keep the family tradition going.
In 1998, Monica Tunks, Jeff's wife (both pictured above), joined the company and has taken it to great heights indeed ever since. Under her tenure, with business acumen and a vision of her own, Batteries Now opened a franchise store in Evansville, Indiana as well as Motorsports By Batteries Now in Jasper.
It is evident the company is not slowing down anytime soon, but neither is the family tradition. In 2011, Aaron Dupont officially joined the company and while he has many duties, he usually keeps everything running smoothly as the mechanic extraordinaire. Just by family alone, Batteries Now and Motorsports By Batteries Now have well over a half-century of experience to serve you in any capacity.
While the company changed names, expanded, and has continued to evolve with the times to meet demand, there is one staple that will never change: Taking care of the customer is always the #1 goal.
It all began in the 1960s with Stanley Tunks.
During this time, Stanley started a small business specializing in batteries and with the help of his son, Jeff, he called his business Tunks & Son. Through the years, Stanley enjoyed success along the way by adhering to only one creed: Taking care of the customer is always the #1 goal.
Bought an SUV from Motorsports By Batteries Now about two weeks ago. For the make, model, year, and condition of this car, I got an excellent deal. There are no visible scratches or dings on the body, no damage to the interior, and nothing wrong under the hood. The price was around $3,000 less than the competitors pricing within 250 miles of my location. Aaron managed the sale and did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend Motorsports to someone looking to buy a used vehicle.

Seriously competitive prices!
Last week, we bought a van from Motorsports and it was literally almost $2k cheaper than anywhere else we looked! We even looked as far as Clarksville, TN and found nothing priced where we wanted. They said it had a couple of minor scratches on it before they got it, but it was inspected by their staff and runs great so that is all we care about. Aaron and Jessica assisted with the sale and transfer and they were wonderful to work with. I would definitely recommend this place for a used vehicle. Thanks!

My new Gravely and I are getting along real well. I love it. Thanks also for the t-shirts I found on the mower. My brother and sister-in-law were home from Powell, OH and also fell in love with it. They were doing research all the way back on Sunday about possibly purchasing one. It is good to know you are only a phone call away if I have questions or problems along the way. Many thanks, Mike G.
