Razor-Back partners with Kasey Kahne Racing
Kasey Kahne Racing (KKR), a World of Outlaws Sprint Car racing team, announces the continuation of Razor-Back® Professional Tools sponsorship, to its roster of corporate team sponsors. Razor-Back will serve as a primary sponsor of the No. 49 Sprint Car driven by Brad Sweet for 39 races. The 30-year-old California native is one of the top drivers in the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and currently sits first in the driver points standings following the opening DIRTcar Nationals series held at Volusia Speedway Park (Florida) in mid-February.
“Brad is off to a fast start and, thanks to Razor-Back and other great partners, he’ll be able to compete for the World of Outlaws Sprint Car championship,” said Kahne, a former USAC Midget champion who currently drives in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. “Razor-Back’s tough American-made tools fit well into the KKR family and we are looking forward to getting them to victory lane this season.”
“The partnership with Kasey Kahne Racing makes perfect sense for the Razor-Back brand as the World of Outlaws is the type of grassroots racing that our hardworking customers enjoy watching,” said Eric Bernstein, vice president of marketing and product development of The AMES Companies, Inc., the parent company to the Razor-Back brand. “Razor-Back tools have been in the hands that tackle the toughest jobs known to man, and it doesn’t get much tougher than racing an 800-horsepower sprint car on a slick dirt track.”
Readers are short on tiny-house movement
Only 13% of HBSDealer.com readers think that the tiny-house movement is going to be huge.
That’s one of the findings of a recent online survey at HBSDealer.com. (You can still answer the poll question here.) A total of 184 people answered the question: “What’s your take on the tiny house movement.”
Here’s how our readers responded:
• “Great for Pinterest, not for business;” 45%
• “There’s potential there for a successful niche, in some markets, maybe;” 43%
• “It’s going to be YUGE;” 13%.
The survey was spurred by a relatively big program rollout at 84 Lumber – Tiny Living by 84 Lumber.
"The tiny home movement lies perfectly at the intersection of 84 Lumber's expertise in high-quality building materials and green building best practices," said Maggie Hardy Magerko, president and owner of 84 Lumber, when the program was introduced earlier this month.
