Pawuk To Again Fly Ohio CAT Colors At Pontiac Performance Nationals

RICHFIELD, OH 5/8/06 For the second straight year Pro Stock veteran Mark "Cowboy" Pawuk will carry the colors of Ohio CAT and the CAT Rental Stores into the fray at the Pontiac Performance Nationals at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, OH on the weekend of May 18-21.

"I'm honored to once again be representing the almost 1,000 employees of Ohio CAT and the CAT Rental Stores," said Pawuk from his race shop in Richfield. "In an era when the prospect of money sometimes results in people making foolish decisions, I'm still a believer in endorsing only those products and services I honestly believe in, and have personal experience with, and that's definitely the case with both Ohio CAT and the CAT Rental Stores.

"We utilize a significant amount of Caterpillar equipment at Empaco Equipment Corporation in our construction and service station refurbishment work, and that brought us into contact with Ohio CAT and the CAT Rental Stores a long time ago. With 15 stores serving 89 counties in Oho, northern Kentucky and southeastern Indiana, they're close by when you need them. Just as importantly, their staff of seasoned professionals means that down time is kept to a minimum, while the number and locations of the CAT Rental Stores means we can temporarily replace a piece of equipment almost instantly.

"We're going to have a hospitality area set up in our pits at National Trail Raceway where we're planning on hosting a number of Ohio CAT and CAT Rental Store employees and customers. This is something we're looking forward to because not only are our guests race fans, they're very knowledgeable about Pro Stock drag racing, and it always helps when you have a few hundred extra fans on hand!"

Ken Taylor, President of Ohio CAT and the CAT Rental Stores, is also looking forward to a "return engagement" with Pawuk. "Mark runs the kind of first class race team that we can easily identify with," he said. "We pride ourselves on running the same kind of quality operation in all of our business dealings, so teaming up for the second year in a row was an easy decision for us. Our staff and customers are looking forward to another exciting weekend of drag racing where we hope the icing on the cake will be seeing Mark's race car -- and our colors -- displayed in the winner's circle!"
