RANDALLSTOWN, MD (September 3, 2015) – Mattei Compressors, Inc., the leading provider of rotary vane air compressors, is pleased to announce its partnership with ThorSport Racing for the upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
Mattei will serve as the primary sponsor for the #13 Toyota Tundra, which will be piloted by ThorSport Racing’s Cameron Hayley for the Fred’s 250 at Talladega Superspeedway, and the Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He is currently sixth place in points and a leading contender for Sunoco’s Rookie of the Year.
The Camping World Truck Series is a unique set of NASCAR races in which modified pickups are pitted against each other. Mattei is a long-time supporter of the automotive industry, and as such, sponsoring NASCAR cars was a natural move for the air compressor manufacturer.
"We have found NASCAR sponsorships to be an effective marketing tool for our industrial, automotive, and collision repair market," said Jay Hedges, President of Mattei Compressors, Inc. "The loyalty developed through the at-track experience for our customers and nationally televised racing is second-to-none. We’re also really looking forward to working with ThorSport Racing again."
ThorSport is also excited to partner with Mattei for a second time.
"We are pleased to have Mattei—who makes world-class air compressors—back on board with ThorSport Racing," said Matt LaNeve, Vice President of Sales for ThorSport. "All of our facilities use Mattei air compressors for plant air, and only Mattei supplies OEM airends for our seal-coating equipment.”
The Fred's 250 will take place on Saturday, October 24 at Talladega Superspeedway and the Ford EcoBoost 200 is scheduled for Friday, November 20 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway.
