US-based National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) has entered into a multi-year agreement with Eaton, a power management firm.
Under the agreement, Eaton will install its 20 Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at NASCAR offices in Daytona Beach, Charlotte and Concord.
Eaton noted that the new charging stations will power electric and plug-in hybrid EVs of NASCAR employees and guests.
Commenting on the deal, NASCAR Green Innovation, Strategic Development managing director Mike Lynch said that Eaton has enabled NASCAR to reduce the sports’ impact on the environment through the installation of EV station technology.
Meanwhile, the new partnership designates Eaton as the official EV Provider for NASCAR Green.
Eaton Electrical Business global client director Johnny Miller said, "As a former NASCAR driver, I have seen firsthand how motor sports are not only an incubator of significant technology advancements in transportation, but also a key platform in driving public awareness of the technologies.
"As a leader in energy management and in the emerging market of grid connected vehicles, Eaton is a perfect fit for the NASCAR Green Team."
