CRESCO, Iowa (May 20, 2013) – Six hundred trees planted. That’s the result of the partnership between Featherlite Trailers and NASCAR® during NASCAR’s Race to Green™ initiative. The initiative was a month-long project that galvanized NASCAR, its partners and its fans to take eco-friendly action. Featherlite, the Official Trailer of NASCAR, was one of the companies that took an active role in the Race to Green incentive, donating 300 trees each time a driver whose team used a Featherlite race transporter won a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
“Featherlite Trailers and NASCAR are on the same page when it comes to the environment,” Justin Queensland, Featherlite’s U.S. Dealer Sales Manager said. “We’re pleased to be part of such a public commitment to reduce our carbon footprint and help preserve the environment.”
Other companies who participated in the Race to Green Initiative include 3M, Creative Recycling Systems, Ford Motor Company, Toyota and UPS.
Featherlite Trailers, headquartered in Iowa, built the first all-aluminum trailer in 1973 and throughout its 40-year history has been a leading American trailer brand. The company, which has been associated with NASCAR for 20 years, offers a versatile line of trailers for recreational and business uses, including car, motorcycle, livestock, cargo, horse and flatbed trailers.
