Petree, Schrader announce associate sponsor

TULSA, Okla. (Feb. 25, 1998) -- For the second season, Mark IV Automotive, manufacturer of Dayco belts and hoses and Purolator oil and air filters, announced it will be an associate sponsor with Andy Petree Racing and driver Ken Schrader for the 1998 NASCAR Winston Cup season. Dayco will appear on the deck lid. "Our partnership with Andy Petree Racing and Ken Schrader has been a successful one so far," said Dennis Welvaert, executive vice president of Mark IV Automotive. "Based on their performance at Daytona, we feel this team will best represent our organization and our desire to showcase our superior line of automotive products."

Mark IV Automotive has had a longstanding association with NASCAR. Their Purolator brand is entering the second season as the primary sponsor of the Ken Schrader owned No. 52 Chevrolet driven by Mike Wallace in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

Purolator has also sponsored drivers such as David Pearson, A.J. Foyt, Derrike Cope and Alan Kulwicki through their many years of NASCAR sponsorship and support.

"For the second consecutive season, Andy Petree Racing is proud to have Dayco belts and hoses as an associate sponsor on the No. 33 Chevrolet Monte Carlo," said Petree, car owner and crew chief of the Skoal Bandit Racing team. "It is an honor to have the continued support of a corporation such as Mark IV Automotive and the products they provide."

"Schrader Racing has developed a successful relationship with Mark IV Automotive in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series," said Schrader. "That relationship opened the door for a partnership with Andy Petree Racing on the NASCAR Winston Cup Circuit. Their commitment and dedication to this sport shows in their continuing effort to provide quality automotive products."

Mark IV Automotive is based in Tulsa, Okla., and employs approximately 17,400 people worldwide. They are manufacturers of power and fluid transfer systems, filtration systems and components for global industrial and automotive aftermarket.
