LINDE GASES UP WITH
PRO STOCK TOUR FOR 2012
(Halifax, NS – May 9, 2012) The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour (PST) and Linde Canada are pleased to announce that they have partnered once again for the upcoming season. Linde will continue their support of the top level of Atlantic Canadian stock car racing by backing the Linde Most Laps Led Award while also supplying a Miller Electric Welder for use by the teams during the season.
The Linde Group is a world-leading industrial gases and engineering company with more than two million customers in 100 countries, sales of $18 billion (Cdn) and over 50,000 employees worldwide. Linde is a world market leader, offering all the benefits of a true global player combined with local expertise and personalized service. In Canada, Linde is the premier supplier of gases, welding equipment and safety products with 70 stores, a fleet of trucks and drivers, and dedicated customer service and sales teams. They safely supply a full range of liquid and compressed industrial and specialty gases, welding, cutting and scientific equipment and safety products and accessories across the country.
The Linde Most Laps Led Award goes to the driver in each main feature on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour that leads the most circuits in the main event. Former three-time series champion John Flemming (Halifax, NS) led 382 laps last season to collect the end of season bonus from Linde while eight drivers pocketed individual race bonuses by leading the most laps in their respective features.
Linde also supplies the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour with a Miller Electric Welder for use on the Tour throughout the season. The welder is transported to each track by Pro Stock Tour officials and is available to the teams should they need it throughout the duration of a race day. At the season ending Awards Gala for the series, the welder is given away via a random draw made amongst full-time competitors on the Tour. Flemming was the lucky recipient of the Miller Electric Welder at the 2011 Awards Banquet held in Charlottetown, PE. The Gala moves to the Crowne Plaza in Moncton, New Brunswick for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.
“It’s great to have Linde Canada back as the sponsor of the Most Laps Lead Award on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour.” Said Ken Cunning, General Manager of the Tour. “They are a great company and we look forward to working with Gary Jamieson and the folks at Linde again this year”
“Linde Canada is excited about our continued partnership with the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour and wishes every one a great racing season.” Said Gary Jamieson, Sales Representative for Linde Canada Ltd.
The cars and stars of the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will enter battle for the first time in the 2012 season on Sunday, May 20th at Scotia Speedworld in the lid-lifting CARQUEST 100.
