Every fan of NASCAR has heard of the Daytona 500 or the Coca-Cola 600. But have you heard of the ServiceMaster 200? In August of this year ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore proudly announced that they will be the title sponsor of the ServiceMaster 200, the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Phoenix International Raceway (PIR) on Saturday Nov. 9.
During the opening ceremonies of the event, ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore will honor first responders by donating $10,000 to both Prescott Firefighter’s Charities and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The donations will directly benefit the families of the 19 heroic Prescott firefighters that died on June 30 fighting the blaze near Yarnell, Arizona. ServiceMaster will also be hosting the family members and fellow firefighters of the fallen heroes as guests at the ServiceMaster 200.
With more than 60 years of providing disaster restoration to homes and businesses throughout the United States, ServiceMaster often works closely with first responders and wants to recognize the work and sacrifices of these public servants. President of ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore Tom Coba said, “ServiceMaster has an immense amount of respect and appreciation for first responders nationwide who are willing to risk their lives and sacrifice so much for our nation’s safety. The ServiceMaster 200 will serve as a unique opportunity for ServiceMaster Clean and Restore to recognize and honor the men and women that our team works with closely week in and week out to restore peace of mind during disaster situations.”
Since 2009, ServiceMaster has been the official sponsor of the yellow flag caution period for International Speedway Corporation (ISC) and PIR. Track personnel and the track-drying equipment display the ServiceMaster Clean brand and during NASCAR races they can be seen cleaning the race track, removing debris, and drying the track quickly and professionally to quickly get back to racing action.
