Ingersoll Rand signs associate sponsorship of the No. 11 car,
driven by Elliott Sadler
DAVIDSON, N.C. -- (Business Wire)
Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating and sustaining safe,
comfortable and efficient environments, announced a sponsorship
agreement between the company’s compressed air systems, tools and
equipment business and Joe
Gibbs Racing (JGR). Ingersoll Rand will be an associate sponsor of
the OneMain Financial No. 11 car, driven by Elliott Sadler for the 2013
NASCAR Nationwide Series racing season.
Under the agreement, Ingersoll Rand is outfitting Sadler’s garage and
pit box with its latest cordless and pneumatic tools. Ingersoll Rand has
been supplying pit crews with the most efficient pit tools on the market
since the inaugural
NASCAR race in 1959. Today, nearly every pit crew on the NASCAR
circuit relies on the Ingersoll
Rand ThunderGun™ for quick tire changes.
"It's a great opportunity to work with Ingersoll Rand this season," said
Sadler. "It's a brand that stands for power, durability and reliability,
and those are all things that we strive for as a race team. The
Ingersoll Rand tools help my crew make repairs faster, which means less
time in the garage and more time on the track."
This is Sadler’s inaugural season with Joe Gibbs Racing. His first
NASCAR Nationwide Series careerstart was in 1995. As a veteran driver
with more than 16 seasons on the NASCAR circuit, Sadler has competed in
the Sprint Cup, Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series. Last
season, Sadler took the checkered flag at Phoenix, Bristol, Chicagoland
and Iowa, and had 15 Top Five and 24 Top 10 finishes.
Joe Gibbs Racing is based in Huntersville, N.C., just 10 miles down the
road from Ingersoll Rand’s North American headquarters and corporate
center. JGR has dominated the NASCAR Nationwide Series circuit since
2008, collecting 68 wins in 161 races. JGR also collected one driver and
four owner championships over the past five seasons.
“Other NASCAR teams measure their success against the winning records
set by Joe Gibbs Racing. JGR is the team to beat every time its drivers
take the track,” said Nathan Schmid, marketing manager – vehicle
services, Ingersoll Rand. “Ingersoll Rand is a leader in the compressed
air and tool markets, and manufactures best-in-class products. It makes
sense for us to partner with a race team with a proven legacy of success
— just like Ingersoll Rand tools.
