EDGE TECH CORP RETURNS TO THE CHAMP CAR WORLD SERIES WITH CDW AND RSPORTS FOR 2007
LOVELAND, Colorado (April 10, 2007) -- Ready to take the green flag in 2007, EDGE Tech Corp is pleased to announce its return to the Champ Car World Series through its partnership with CDW and RSPORTS.
EDGE Tech is again providing the RSPORTS #9/CDW team with DRAM-based memory upgrade solutions for their notebook computers and servers, helping to increase the reliability and accessibility of the team's data storage. EDGE also supplies the team with their top-of-the-line portable storage products including DiskGO0x2122 Flash Drives and DiskGO0x2122 Portable Hard Drives. EDGE is also supplying CDW's racing photo agency, TnT Images, with their ultra-fast ProShot compact flash memory cards for their digital cameras, the perfect choice for professional photographers in a sport that demands speed.
"EDGE's involvement in the CDW Vendor Partner program during 2006 helped us to realize an appreciable increase in sales and brand awareness," said Jeff Thompson, President and CEO of EDGE Tech Corp. "With an increased activation program and the new Champ Car television package, our 2007 program will help us to continue on our growth cycle."
"Entertaining customers in a casual, friendly atmosphere at memorable events keeps the EDGE name and our products top of mind. Also, being able to meet face to face with CDW's Sales staff at race events allows EDGE products to become more than a part number in the CDW inventory," stated Thompson.
Dan Pettit, RSPORTS Co-owner, exclaimed, "We are excited to have EDGE Tech Corp and CDW back with us for our 2007 racing season. EDGE and its products were instrumental in helping us achieve the results we had in 2006. With the improvements we have made to our organization and IT infrastructure, 2007 is going to be a great year for RSPORTS and all our partners."
Justin Wilson will return to the #9/CDW/Cosworth/DP01/Bridgestone in 2007 after three successful years in the Champ Car World Series that have included 35 top-ten starts, 29 top-ten finishes, four poles and three victories. His consistency on the track makes him a fierce competitor, earning him a second place in the Champ Car World Series Driver's Championship in 2006; He was also the recipient of the 2006 Greg Moore Legacy Award for his combination of outstanding on-track talent and dynamic personality.
RSPORTS kicked-off the 2007 Champ Car World Series season on the streets in Las Vegas, Nevada, April 6-8. The next stop for the team is in Long Beach, California on April 13-15.
