As we’ve talked about before, Fluidmaster has a long history with racing and engines. That’s why we’re very excited to tell you that Fluidmaster will sponsoring Matt Kenseth’s #17 Roush Fenway Ford in Saturday night’s Bank of America 500 in Charlotte, North Carolina. The race will be broadcast live on ABC with coverage beginning at 7 pm EST. You can read more about the sponsorship in the official press release from us, and you can also check out Roush Fenway Racing’s website for their press release and pictures of the car. A scale-model of the car is even available for pre-order from Brickel’s Racing Collectibles.
Kenseth currently sits fifth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Standings after four Chase races (NASCAR’s version of a playoff, for those who don’t watch the sport), just 12 points back of the lead. The Charlotte race will mark the halfway point of the Chase, so a good finish should keep Kenseth right in the hunt going into the last five races of the season. Kenseth already has two wins this year, and is going for his second Series Championship.
Part of the reason for the sponsorship is to announce the launch of our new dual flush valve, the DuoFlush (which I'll talk about more in the coming months). But it is also to get the Fluidmaster name out there so that, when you install a Fluidmaster product in your customer's home, they know who we are and that you're using the best parts possible.
It’s very exciting for us to sponsor not just a Sprint Cup car, but the car of one of the premier drivers in NASCAR, and we want to share that excitement with you. We’re holding a drawing for a Matt Kenseth / Fluidmaster NASCAR jacket (pictured to the right). That’s a $110 value. All’s that you have to do is answer two trivia questions:
- In what year did Matt Kenseth win his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship (hint: it wasn’t called Sprint Cup at the time)?
- What is the name of the fill valve that Fluidmaster just announced to all PRO Alliance members last week?
Send your answers to email@example.com. A winner will be selected from all entries that answer both questions correctly. The contest will run until Monday, October 17th at noon Pacific time. Please make sure to include your name, phone number and shipping address in your email. Good luck!
