UNITED ASSOCIATION NAMED AS MAJOR ASSOCIATE SPONSOR OF DON PRUDHOMME RACING'S TOP FUEL DRAGSTER
VISTA, Calif. (March 10, 2009) -- Don Prudhomme Racing announced today that The United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada (UA), has partnered with Snake Racing as the Major Associate Sponsor of the U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company Top Fuel dragster, driven by Spencer Massey.
As the Major Associate Sponsor, U.A. and its International Training Fund (ITF), will enjoy significant identification on the Top Fuel dragster, driver and team uniforms; enjoy pit-side hospitality during the 2009 NHRA Full Throttle Series national events, personal appearances by Massey and Team Owner Don Prudhomme, and other key value elements.
"We are very pleased to welcome U.A. as a valued partner at Snake Racing," said Team Owner, Don Prudhomme. "The U.A. is such a strong organization and we are proud to have the opportunity to help in their efforts to increase awareness of the great programs that U.A. offers, not only to its existing members, but for new members as well. Their job training programs and facilities are very impressive, as well as their Veterans In Pipe (VIP) effort, which assists returning U.S. Military servicemen and servicewomen with job placement. I am very proud of our new relationship with U.A. and look forward to many years of mutual success both on and off the race track."
"The UA Team is thrilled with the partnership we have developed with Don Prudhomme Racing," said UA Director of Training Mr. Michael Arndt. "The UA through this new partnership will have access to a yet unexplored group of apprenticeship applicants. These applicants will become a part of our ongoing recruitment effort and supply additional applicants to pipe trade apprenticeship programs throughout the United States. These apprenticeship programs are in the welding, plumbing, pipefitting, HVACR and sprinkler fitting industries of the pipe trades."
