TORONTO, ON – On April 21, Ridgeline™, Parkland Corporation’s (“Parkland”) quality, high-performance lubricant brand, announced its first-ever entry into the competitive APC Racing Series with championship-contending driver Josh Stade.
Parkland’s purpose is to power journeys and energize communities. Parkland provides well over 1 million customers per day with the essential fuels, quality foods and convenient snacks they depend on while helping them lower their environmental impact at the same time. Parkland is a Canadian multinational company with operations across the USA, the Caribbean and central and south America.
The full primary Ridgeline™ sponsored #17 car was unveiled at Truck World 2022. Guests were able to see the brand-new Pro Late Model car featuring a brand-new McColl Racing Enterprises MRE chassis, Ford Racing 347 Crate Engine and a sleek Ridgeline™ green and charcoal Toyota Camry-style five-star fiberglass body. The car is set to compete in one of the most popular asphalt stock car racing divisions across North America.
“We are excited to officially unveil the Ridgeline™-sponsored car,” said Tom McClary, director of Lubricants and Specialty Products at Parkland. “We can’t wait to see Josh compete and win this season across the APC Racing Series and other invitational events.”
Driver Josh Stade and his team use Ridgeline™ lubricants in their team’s race car hauler, which transports the car from track to track. Stade will also be using Ridgeline™ lubricant products in his family-owned truck fleet and heavy equipment applications.
“After 18 seasons of racing, I am the most excited this year to be working with the Ridgeline™ lubricants team as an ambassador of the Ridgeline™ brand,” said Stade.
