BOUCHERVILLE, QC, March 16, 2017 /CNW/ - Lowe's Canada is proud to announce its sponsorship of Tagliani Autosport's #18 racecar for the 2017 NASCAR Pinty's Series (NPS) season. In 2016, Alex Tagliani enjoyed his best season ever in the NASCAR Canada division and Lowe's Canada looks forward to a very exhilarating new season ahead.
"We are very excited to support Alex Tagliani, a driver who holds an exceptional track record in the racing world and who shares the same values as Lowe's Canada in terms of excellence and integrity," commented Mr. Sylvain Prud'homme, President and CEO of Lowe's Canada. "We look forward to a very exciting NASCAR Pinty's Series season with Alex and his entire team."
"I am very excited about our newest sponsor, Lowe's Canada," mentioned Alex Tagliani. "As someone who really enjoys home renovation and construction, carrying the Lowe's logo is a huge honour for me. It's no secret that I spend as much time as I can in Lowe's various banners and can often be found there while my wife is running some other errands! It's not every day that you can find such a personal connection with the brands you represent. I can't wait to start interacting with our new fans, customers and Lowe's employees across Canada."
Between May and September, Alex Tagliani and his #18 racecar will visit stores across Lowe's Canada banners, including Lowe's, RONA and Réno-Dépôt, where he will meet fans and sign autographs. Lowe's Canada will also work closely with EpiPen – another one of Alex Tagliani's sponsors – in variety of promotional events to further promote a safe environment and raise awareness not only for racers who suffer from food allergies, such as Alex Tagliani, but all those who live with that reality.
