USF2000 & Pro Mazda Get Race Backer


Allied’s two divisions – Interior Building Products and Exterior Building Products – will share the 2013 program. Both divisions will be present at the St. Petersburg Pro Mazda and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca USF2000 rounds, while the Interior Building Products group will headline the Toronto USF2000 and Houston Pro Mazda events and the Exterior Building Products Group the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course Pro Mazda venue.

The divisions will host an average of 30 clients/guests who participate in a variety of activities in addition to enjoying trackside hospitality suite programs and great racing at each event. Allied guests serve as honorary race starters giving the command to start engines and waving the green flag, assist in podium ceremonies and trophy presentations, and take part in private paddock tours, driver meet-and-greets and dinners featuring series drivers.

The company, headquartered in East Rutherford, N.J., will be showcased at the series’ hospitality unit, and every entry in the Pro Mazda and USF2000 series field will carry Allied branding.

“We at Allied Building Products are delighted to extend our involvement with Dan Andersen and his racing ventures,” said Ron Pilla, President of Allied Interior Building Products. “Supporting the USF2000 Championship the past two years has been very enjoyable for our clients and staff and we are looking forward to being a part of the new Pro Mazda series as well. The experience at each race weekend provides us with excellent entertainment and hospitality value at premier events in key markets for us.”
