Rhino Wipe Partners with Ben Rhodes and Rico Abreu
Cornelius, N.C. (September 20, 2016) - National Wiper Alliance®, manufacturers of Rhino Wipe®, is pleased to announce a partnership with NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) drivers Ben Rhodes and Rico Abreu. Focusing on the automotive industry and the harsh racing environment, Rhino Wipe's reusable cleaning wipes offer superior cleaning ability and are well matched to conquer the rigors of a weekend at the race track.
The Rhino Wipe® system combines the superior strength of reusable dry wipes in a patented refillable tote system. This system maximizes Rhino Wipe's portability and accessibility by attaching to nearly anything including, boats, ladders, and car headrests. Abreu and Rhodes demand exceptional performance in their gear at the racetrack and Rhino Wipe® delivers every time. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Rhino Wipe® goes to the International Rhino Foundation to stop the illegal poaching of rhinos around the globe.
National Wiper identified rising stars Ben Rhodes and Rico Abreu as key brand ambassadors for the Rhino Wipe® Racing Team. Abreu's passion for grassroots and local racing delivers Rhino Wipe a platform for a grassroots marketing program across the continental United States. Rhodes' outgoing personality and speed on the track create the ideal combination for the Rhino Wipe® Racing Team.
"Partnering with Rico (Abreu) and Ben (Rhodes) gives us the opportunity to prove that Rhino Wipe will not only stand up to the grease and dirt of the sport of NASCAR, but they will stand up to most anything," said Jeff Slosman, President of National Wiper Alliance® "Our wipes are as tough as the rhinos we're working to protect. We've made Rhino Wipes® durable enough to re-use and we've designed them to go along with you, anywhere you're working, camping, fishing or building your own race car."
Ben Rhodes, a Louisville, Ky., native and NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Champion, drives the No. 41 Toyota Tundra with ThorSport Racing in the NCWTS. Rhodes is currently competing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors and the series' championship title. The 19-year-old, known for his outgoing personality and proven speed on the track, earned a career-best second-place finish at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Ill., in June and won his first-career NCWTS 21-means21 pole starting position at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in April.
"I'm looking forward to working with Rhino Wipe® and beginning this relationship," said Rhodes. "This is a great product that I know we are going to be using constantly around the house and at the track. It's also great to see them stand up and get involved with a cause to stop the illegal poaching of rhinos around the globe. Hopefully we can not only raise awareness for their towels, but also towards the International Rhino Foundation as well."
Rico Abreu, a St. Helena, Calif. native, is a two-time defending Chili Bowl Nationals champion and won the 2014 USAC midget championship. The decorated sprint car veteran drives the No. 98 Toyota Tundra with Thorsport Racing in the NCWTS. The 24-year-old is also competing for 2016 Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors and the series' championship. Abreu has continued his passion for grassroots racing, competing in roughly 50 dirt-track winged sprint car and midget races this season. He earned a NCWTS career-best third-place finish at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio earlier this year.
"It's an honor to have Rhino Wipe® come on board with us this season," said Abreu. "The Rhino Wipe® is especially going to come in handy for our team throughout the rest of the year. The towel is so durable and tough which makes it perfect for dirt track racing. I look forward to working with them throughout the rest of the year and hope we can get them into victory lane."
