Pawuk Signs With Sutherlands and Dutch Boy Paints for Topeka Race

RICHFIELD, OH 5/17/06 Mark "Cowboy" Pawuk today announced that he'll once again carry the colors of Sutherlands Lumber & Home Improvement, a 69-store regional home care chain, and Dutch Boy Paints, into the NHRA O'Reilly Summer Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka on the weekend of May 25-28. This is the second consecutive year that Pawuk will represent Sutherlands during the Topeka race, although his relationship with Dutch Boy Paints runs a bit deeper.

"I'm honored to be representing Sutherlands and Dutch Boy again this year," Pawuk said from his race shop in Ohio. "We made a couple of personal appearances on behalf of Sutherlands last year, and I can say without hesitation that their stores are remarkably well equipped, and their employees are very knowledgeable of the product lines they handle, including Dutch Boy Paints.

"We've been proud to carry the Dutch Boy name and logo on our car in the past, and if memory serves me on this, I think our relationship stretches back more than 15 years.

"This year Dutch Boy is introducing their new Color Simplicity System, which will be available in the Sutherlands stores in June, so the timing for this promotion couldn't be better.

"I don't know about anyone else, but when it comes to picking the right colors for painting around our house, I'm always afraid I'm going to come home with the wrong paint. I've already experienced the color palettes the Color Simplicity System works with, and believe me, that made the whole process so simple and easy that, well, let's just say that my wife now trusts me to make the right selection!"

Dutch Boy is a member of the Sherwin-Williams family of fine home care products, and are available in all 69 Sutherlands stores in 11 states. With seven stores in the Kansas City area alone, Sutherlands -- and Dutch Boy -- will be well represented not only in the marketplace, but at Heartland Park Topeka as well.

Mark Pawuk will make a personal appearance with his race car at the Liberty, KS store on Thursday, May 25th from 4:00 to 6:00 PM. Visitors to all seven Kansas City area Sutherlands can win tickets to the NHRA Summer Nationals at Heartland Park during the week prior to the race.

"We've had one of those up-and-down seasons so far," Pawuk added, "but we've come up with a little more power in the last week or two, so I think we should be very competitive at Topeka. We'd like nothing better than to give Sutherlands and Dutch Boy a victory, and we're going to do whatever it takes to make that happen."
