Earnhardt Again Partnering with Uponor for Upcoming Race and Industry Tradeshow


Jeffrey Earnhardt will be again teaming up with Uponor for his sixth Nationwide Series race of the season. This time, he will be driving the #08 Uponor Ford Mustang for Go Green Racing in the Ford EcoBoost 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday, Nov. 17.


“It’s great to have Uponor onboard for the final Nationwide Series race of the year,” said Earnhardt. “At the Charlotte race, I met a lot of customers that use Uponor’s products. It’s always cool to learn more about your sponsors, and getting the chance to spend time with the contractors is right in my wheelhouse. I like the hardworking crowd and look forward to giving them someone to cheer for in NASCAR.”


This will be Earnhardt’s fourth partnership race with Uponor, a leading
manufacturer of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX-a) tubing and provider of
plumbing, fire sprinkler and radiant heating and cooling systems for
commercial and residential structures worldwide.

Earnhardt will also be making an appearance with the Uponor Ford
Mustang at the South Florida Plumbing and Mechanical Tradeshow & Expo at
the Miami Airport Convention Center on Thursday, Nov. 15, from 3 to 8 p.m.
(admission is free).


“At Uponor, we believe in partnerships — with our contractors, our
reps, our customers and all the other professionals in the building industry,”
says Ingrid Mattsson, director, Brand Management at Uponor. “This
sponsorship with Jeffrey Earnhardt’s racing team is a wonderful extension of
our mission to partner with professionals to create better human
environments — from inside a building to outside on the racetrack.”


The race will be televised Nov. 17, 2012, at 4 p.m. EDT on ESPN2.
Jeffrey can be heard every Wednesday at 9 p.m. on SiriusXM NASCAR radio
with Claire B. Lang.
