Cleveland, OH - Kerry Alexander and the ...
Cleveland, OH - Kerry Alexander and the #38 Wickes Lumber/ICI Dulux Paints Camaro made the trek to Cleveland a few days early in order to help ICI Dulux Paints gear up for the Marconi Grand Prix weekend and the BFGoodrich Trans-Am Simple Green 100 race to be held on Saturday.
Sean Gillespie, Regional Sales Manager for the Cleveland Ohio area decided that having Alexander and the racecar would be an ideal opportunity to reward key customers and increase sales and traffic at the store level. Sean and his staff held an open house at the Valley View, OH store just South of Cleveland. Several ICI suppliers were on hand to display their latest wears. The show was the appetizer for ICI's race week festivities, which will culminate with over 75 customers and staff attending the Simple Green 100 on Saturday.
"Sean and his sales staff at ICI were some of the most enthusiastic and supportive groups we have ever visited" said Alexander. "We really enjoyed meeting all of the ICI customers and having the opportunity to sit down and talk racing with them. We also enjoyed all of the young race fans that turned out for pictures with the car."
Alexander will be taking the green flag on Saturday afternoon at 4:45 P.M. The race will be 47 laps around the 2.106 mile, 10 turn temporary airport circuit for a total distance of 98.982 miles.
Saturday's Simple Green 100 will be televised on the Speedvision Network with tape-delayed coverage, beginning Saturday, July 8, at 12:00 p.m. (EDT). The Speedvision Network
