Economic Conditions Black Flag ParkerStore Dirt Late Model Sponsorship

Cleveland, OH, (February 1, 2002) Parker Hannifin and the ParkerStores has announced that it will discontinue their primary sponsorship of dirt late model standout Jimmy Mars after the 2001 season due to economic pressures.

"This is really disappointing for all of us," said John Strand, Market Specialist for Parker Hannifin. "We have hand picked the teams that we have sponsored, and it is really tough when the relationship ends. We have had five great years together and a lot of success. We are like any other company, when business conditions take a downturn, discretionary spending is the first thing that is looked at, and racing is in that category."
