Mapei contest winners were treated to an “up close and personal” experience with the Robby Gordon Motorsports (RGM) team.

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL - The solid workload at Flooring Resources Corp. this year resulted in the company winning the Mapei 2009 “Easy Pass to the Track” Contest for Floor Covering Installers. The full-service flooring contractor from Elk Grove Village, IL, purchased the largest amount of Mapei floor-covering installation products in the country between May 1 and July 31, 2009.

On October 2, Flooring Resources employees Nick Krueger and George Lullo traveled to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Kansas City, KS, compliments of Mapei. Distributors Marty Elrod and Chris Orban from Carpet Cushions & Supplies in Naperville, IL, shared the trip to the Kansas Speedway race, where Mapei hosted the group for an “up close and personal” experience with the Robby Gordon Motorsports (RGM) team.

The day started with Mapei representatives and their guests being ushered past security into Gordon’s autograph trailer, where Gordon was meeting with his fans. Then the group was given a full tour of the RGM operation. They enjoyed lunch with the racecar driver, had a personal autograph session with him and were able to take photos with Gordon and his #7 Toyota Camry. Mapei had arranged “hot pit” passes for their guests, so everyone went onto pit road to see the race from a perspective few people ever get a chance to enjoy.

“We used the Mapei products on some important projects this year, including the Trump Tower and the Willis Tower in Chicago,” said Krueger. “We worked hard, and winning the Mapei contest was a great reward for us. It’s about teamwork - Mapei and RGM are a great team, and Flooring Resources and Mapei are also a great team. Our Mapei rep, Rick York, is always there to help us. His presence is the winning difference.”
