ELLENSBURG, Washington – ASANWT Officials are proud to announce that Echo Outdoor Power Equipment will be the presenting sponsor of the ASA Northwest Tour in 2008. The series will be called the ASA Aero Exhaust Northwest Tour presented by Echo Outdoor Power Equipment.
Jerry Kobza, Marketing Manager of Golden Eagle Distributing stated, “The return of a premier touring series in the Northwest is a perfect vehicle to market the full line of Echo outdoor power equipment. The fans, teams and our network of dealers are very excited about the relationship. Echo is proud to be the presenting sponsor for the ASA Northwest Tour for 2008, and we look forward to building more excitement about the Echo brand with new venues in the Northwest.”
Fans will easily recognize Echo for their participation in the “Cutting Through the Competition” award, where each fast qualifier will receive an Echo chain saw and kit in association with Oregon Chain Saws. Fans also will recognize Echo for their open houses at their dealers that will feature stars of the ASANWT.
“As part of each ASA Northwest Tour Event, our participating dealers will hold open houses featuring the ASA race cars and drivers,” Kobza said. “Fans are given the opportunity to meet the touring stars in a relaxed and fun environment, while learning more about the great new products from Echo. We will continue to bring fans to each dealer event, and this year the ASANWT show race car will be at dealer events.”
“We are excited to have Echo and its dealers become a presenting sponsor in 2008,” Ron Bennett ASANWT Series Director stated. “Golden Eagle and the local dealers are great to work with; they have great enthusiasm for our series as we do with their products. It’s a win-win for everyone. Echo is helping with our associate marketing program with the race tracks by providing Pocket Schedules, Season Schedule Posters, Show Car Wrap and Event Posters.
For 2008, Echo has some great new products that will be a hit with professional’s and home owners. Building on the momentum of the 5 Year Consumer Warranty that Echo debuted last year, Echo has added a full line of new products for 2008 in the new Power Orange color. New for 2008 are the new SRM-280 trimmer, and the new U-Turn trimmer head.
The SRM-280 Series of Trimmers, all in a bold new color, represents an entire new class of performance for ECHO Trimmers. ECHO’s new 28.1cc engine class delivers increased power combined with light weight. That means better performance in a great package.
The ECHO U Turn™ trimmer head could be the fastest way to load string trimmer line you will ever use. If you have ever struggled with reloading complicated string trimmer bump-feed heads it is time to change. This makes changing your line trimmer string as fast as an ASANWT Pit Stop.
The 2008 ASA Aero Exhaust Northwest Tour season will open on Saturday, March 29th with the Speedway Chevrolet 125 at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA. BJ Tidrick will be back to defend his 2007 title against the ASANWT Touring Stars along with the best asphalt Super Late Model Drivers in the Northwest.
The dealer event will be on Friday March 28th at the Coast to Coast Hardware in Monroe, WA from 11:00am to 2:00pm. This will be a great opportunity for the fans and media to meet some of the 2008 stars of the popular traveling late model stock car racing series of the ASNWT. There will also be the chance to get hands on demonstrations of the great Echo Outdoor Power Equipment products.
