Honda Power Equipment Sponsors Racing Action at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Honda Power Equipment has announced a new sponsorship agreement with Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Georgia. Honda's series of extremely quiet portable generators has been named the track's 'Official Portable Generator', joining a distinguished list of products offered by select sponsors of the facility.
Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) is a 1.54-mile (2.48 km) quad-oval track that hosts two NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series races annually. The venue's total capacity is approximately 125,000 and it is considered to be one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR® circuit.
As part of the new sponsorship, Honda Power Equipment will work with AMS to support track operations, supplying Honda commercial mowers, trimmers, generators, and a Honda Big Red multi purpose utility vehicle. In addition, Honda will provide AMS mobile light towers with generators for use during each NASCAR® event during the season to help illuminate evening events. Further, Honda representatives will be on hand to answer questions and provide support to the race teams, fans, vendors and campers who rely upon generator power at each race.
"It is an honor for Honda Power Equipment to be a partner with the Atlanta Motor Speedway," said Steve Bailey, vice president, Honda Power Equipment. "Because performance matters, we are proud to provide a range of Honda products that are up to the challenge of superior performance in one of the most competitive environments in the world."
Honda Power Equipment markets a complete line of generators for commercial and consumer applications. Lightweight, compact Honda generators provide smooth, dependable power for recreation, construction, rental, and emergency use. All Honda generators are powered by Honda four-stroke engines that make them among the world's quietest.
The company also markets a line of lawnmowers and string trimmers for commercial, premium residential and consumer applications. In keeping with Honda's tradition of technological and environmental leadership, all Honda lawnmower and string trimmer models feature Honda's easy-starting engines that deliver smooth, quiet and reliable four-stroke power.
