NLMCC Ends Racing Sponsorship after Four Successful Seasons with Alli Owens

Owens Searching for 2011 Opportunities

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (December 7, 2010) - Since Alli Owens began climbing the racing ranks in 2007, the National Labor Management Cooperation Committee (NLMCC) has been by her side. The NLMCC, comprised of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), sponsored Owens with its ElectrifyingCareers.com banner. The organization gave Owens the provisions to rise from her local Daytona Beach, Fla. short tracks to the ARCA Racing Series. Unable to return as a primary sponsor for Owens in 2011, the NLMCC will end its involvement in the sport after four successful seasons.

"I can't thank the NLMCC enough for all of their support over the last four seasons," Owens said. "They've been with me from the beginning. They backed me when I moved up from the local Florida short tracks to the Whelen All American Series at Hickory Motor Speedway, and they made the next step with me when I began competing in the ARCA Series. I wouldn't be where I am today without them. I appreciate all of their dedication to me and to the sport more than they can imagine. It's been an honor to represent them on and off the track."

Owens had many opportunities during her tenure with the NLMCC to speak at several IBEW and NECA functions. She appeared at numerous local union halls and National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) facilities to meet the employees of the organizations.

"It's been great working with the members of IBEW, NECA and the NJATC," Owens said. "I've visited local unions and training centers across the country. I've participated in their trade shows, meetings and special events. I've met so many great people and I'll always remember the thousands of workers that made the sponsorship possible. I'll forever be grateful for their contributions."

Owens is currently seeking sponsorship for the 2011 season. Owens sat on the outside pole for the ARCA Series race at Daytona International Speedway in 2009 and earned honors as the highest-finishing female at Rockingham Speedway the same season. In 2010, she ran a limited ARCA schedule and achieved three top-15 finishes, including a ninth-place finish at Salem Speedway.
