PDRA Partners with Pilot Flying J to Curb Fuel Costs
The Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) is proud to announce a unique and valuable program with Pilot Flying J that will provide a fuel discount card valid at all Pilot Flying J owned and operated travel centers to PDRA teams.
The 250+ race teams that participate in the PDRA Series will travel through dozens of states, logging thousands of miles to reach the destinations of the 2015 schedule. The PDRA will issue each series driver a fuel discount card to be used at most Pilot Travel Centers or Flying J Travel Plazas across the country for fuel savings.
To participate in the program, drivers will need to follow the instructions located on the card to register and activate the card prior to the first use. In order to receive the fuel discount, drivers must swipe their card at the pump after they swipe their credit or debit card at pump. The aim of this program is to make life a little easier for teams as they travel to and from PDRA events. In addition, the Pilot Flying J “MyRewards” program, exclusively for professional drivers and preferred customers, will be linked to the fuel discount card. Teams will also have the luxury and convenience of downloading the new “MyPilot,” Pilot Flying J’s mobile app, which allows users to check locations, fuel prices, reward balances and more.
Pilot Flying J will have decal signage on each transporter as well as the race cars that participate in the program. PDRA fans may also have a chance to participate in the program if they attend a PDRA event throughout the year. The PDRA will announce winners during track promotions at each of the 10 events.
“We are so proud to have Pilot Flying J as a new marketing partner for our 2015 season. This point-of-purchase saving program on fuel will be a huge hit with our teams. When they pull up to the pump at any of the Pilot Travel Center or Flying J Travel Plaza locations around the country, they will have tangible proof of Pilot Flying J’s commitment to the PDRA,” said Mike Congdon, SVP/PDRA.
“Pilot Flying J caters to the needs of the ‘professional driver.’ – – we have our own style of professional driver,” he said.
Pilot Flying J is the largest operator of travel centers and travel plazas in North America with over 650 locations. As the “Official Fuel Stop of the PDRA” Pilot Flying J makes it easy for rigs of all sizes and types to get in, out and on the way again to and from the track.
