SOLON, OH – Parker Kligerman, NASCAR driver of the #29 Laitner Cleaning Tools, PlanItDIY.com BKR RAM Truck will be racing in the Camping World Truck Series at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday July 21st. There are two reasons Kligerman’s truck is special this week. One – is the debut of the new logo for Laitner, a company recently purchased by Cequent Consumer Products who is for the first time replacing its “Reese Towpower” towing products brand on the truck’s hood. The other reason Kligerman’s truck should attract attention is that it represents a new partnership between Cequent Consumer Products and PlanItDIY.com with the addition of the PlanITDIY logo on the side panel of the truck.
“We are excited to partner with NRHA PlanItDIY and welcome them to a fun NASCAR weekend as a partner on the #29 truck, during which we will also proudly debut the new logo for our Laitner quality cleaning tools brand,” said Shannon Ketvertes, Communications Manager, Cequent Consumer Products. Earlier this year, Laitner was acquired by Cequent – a business move that has already helped Laitner expand its retail reach. “NASCAR fans, should check out Laitner.com this week to see a video featuring NASCAR drivers Parker Kligerman and Brad Keselowski for Laitner Flex Sweep push brooms,” Ketvertes said.
