NEWTON, Iowa – April 22, 2011 – Check your hydraulics because another exciting racing season is about to begin. Iowa Speedway is proud to introduce Tompkins Industries as the presenting sponsor of the Iowa 175 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East/West Challenge on Saturday, May 21.
“Partnering with Iowa Speedway, and being the presenting sponsor for the first race is very exciting for our company,” says Tompkins Industries National Sales Manager Bill Hartman. “This is a good fit for us because Iowa Speedway and Tompkins Industries share similar business models ― meet or exceed industry standards by creating reliable products, at competitive prices, with customer service as the number one priority.”
Chuck Spicer, Iowa Speedway’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, agrees that creating an enjoyable race day experience and providing superior customer service to sponsors and race-goers is a priority.
“As we bring in new partners to Iowa Speedway, we try to match them with sponsorship opportunities that provide value to both their businesses and our fans,” says Spicer. “We felt that showcasing a first-time sponsor during the inaugural race of the year was the perfect way to kick-off the 2011 season.”
In addition to its race sponsorship, Tompkins Industries, a major supplier of hydraulic adapters and fluid power products, will have a booth on the midway throughout the duration of the season.
