Mike Hampton Announces 2008 USAR Pro Cup Program
Mooresville, NC: Mike Hampton is pleased to announce that Eaton Corporation will be a major sponsor of the #31n Ford competing in the 2008 USAR Hooters Pro Cup Northern division and they are teaming up with David "Buggy" Pletcher and DLP Motorsports, Inc. The 22 year old driver stated from the DLP Motorsports race shop in Mooresville, NC, "My association with Eaton Corporation began in 2002 and I am honored and extremely proud to enter the seventh year of our marketing partnership. I had no idea when I first placed an Eaton Cutler-Hammer decal on my Allison Legacy car in 2002 that I would have the opportunity to participate in the USAR Pro Cup series. I am excited about the 2008 season and the opportunity to work with "Buggy" Pletcher. Anyone familiar with the USAR series knows that "Buggy" has successfully driven in this great series and as a team owner/crew chief, DLP Motorsports cars run up front.
Also, the changes made to the schedule for 2008 are great for my sponsor, Eaton Corporation. A perfect example is the second North race at the Milwaukee Mile. This will allow Eaton's Industrial Control Division team members located in Milwaukee to participate in an exciting USAR event. It is nice to have Jennerstown Speedway back on the schedule as this is close to Eaton's Electrical Group headquarters located in Moon Township, PA. Also, Eaton Customers and Distributors really like Bristol Motor Speedway. This race will be a very special event since this is the final race of the Northern schedule and also a combination race with the South cars.
In 2007, we participated in a record number of Eaton's Electrical Group customer appreciation events at many Eaton distributor locations on the East Coast. Also, we participated in Detroit's Woodward Dream Cruise and Orlando's PRI with the Eaton's Performance Products division. These events allowed us to showcase the latest in Detroit Locker
