April 2, 2009

“Help Us Help Peyton” Fundraiser Supports Trade Skills for America‘s Youth

STATESVILLE, N.C., April 2 /PRNewswire/ — Jig-A-Loo USA, Inc. (www.jigaloo.com), makers of innovative automotive and home improvement products, will once again grace the panels of Peyton Sellers’ racecar in this weekend’s NASCAR Nationwide Series O’Reilly 300 on Saturday, April 4 at Texas Motor Speedway. Peyton will be racing the #77 SFP Chevrolet and this weekend will mark the third sponsorship race for Jig-A-Loo and SkillsUSA. Jig-A-Loo recently teamed up with SkillsUSA to kick-off their “Help Us Help Peyton” diecast car promotion with proceeds benefiting SkillsUSA and helping to keep the Jig-A-Loo/SkillsUSA car on the track. The diecast models are representative of the ARCA car Peyton raced at Daytona International Speedway in the ARCA Re/Max Series Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200.

“Peyton Sellers proved at the Irwindale Race why he is one of NASCAR’s best up and coming drivers racing the Jig-A-Loo/SkillsUSA car. His passion on track is only eclipsed by his passion off the track in supporting America’s youth through SkillsUSA,” said Cindy Sutton, vice president, Jig-A-Loo USA. “We realize that by the year 2030, 76 million skilled laborers will enter retirement, while only 41 million new workers will enter the work force. This is why our continued partnership with Peyton and our diecast car promotion are great opportunities to educate the public about SkillsUSA and the importance of developing a skilled American workforce.”

The “Help Us Help Peyton” diecast promotion design is based on the #47 Jig-A-Loo/SkillsUSA Chevrolet Impala SS that Peyton raced February 7, 2009 in the ARCA Re/Max Series Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 at Daytona International Speedway. The cost is just $8(which includes shipping/handling). Proceeds from the sale of the #47 Jig-A-Loo and SkillsUSA diecast replica of the car pictured below, directly benefit SkillsUSA and our partnership with Peyton Sellers in Racing.
