ABC Supply and Racing Legend AJ Foyt Celebrate Milestone Anniversaries

Posted March 5, 2007
BELOIT, Wis. – ABC Supply Co. Inc. and racing icon A.J. Foyt are both marking milestone anniversaries this year.  To celebrate, ABC Supply is giving professional contractors a chance to win valuable items commemorating Foyt’s illustrious Indy car racing career.
The “25/50 Anniversary Sweepstakes” honors ABC Supply’s 25th anniversary and Foyt’s 50th anniversary in Indy car racing.  The Grand Prize is a limited edition stretched canvas painting depicting highlights from Foyt’s legendary career and the First Prize is a framed lithograph of the painting.  Each ABC Supply branch will award one Grand Prize and two First Prizes and will hold drawings for a variety of other anniversary-related items.  The promotion runs May 1 through June 8.  Contractors can enter the sweepstakes at any ABC Supply branch.
ABC Supply is beginning its third season as the sponsor of A.J. Foyt Racing.  The “25/50 Anniversary Sweepstakes” is just part of a year-long celebration of the two organizations’ anniversaries.
“We are proud to sponsor A.J. Foyt Racing and are excited that our organizations are celebrating these significant anniversaries together,” said Ken Hendricks, ABC Supply founder and chief executive officer.  “A.J. and I come from similar backgrounds, and the values and work ethic that have made A.J. Foyt Racing so successful have also fueled ABC Supply’s growth.  It’s a natural partnership.”
“Being part of the A.J. Foyt Racing team and the Indy Racing League is also a real source of pride for our customers and our associates,” Hendricks continued.  “Many of them are Indy racing fans, and they love the fact that we’re a sponsor.  Thousands have had opportunities to join us at the track, and thousands more have attended special racing events at our branches.  They really think of the #14 car as their car.  It gives them an exciting way to identify with ABC Supply.”
