NASCAR driver endorses Perham-made Redline
Redline Performance Products, LLC, the Perham manufacturer of a "dune buggy" recreational vehicle, has announced its association with Greg Biffle, the number 16 car of NASCAR fame with 14 career Sprint Cup victories, and one of the fan favorites on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit.
Biffle and Redline will promote Redline products at several events nationwide in 2009.
"I look forward to this relationship with Redline Performance Products," said Biffle. "I believe that motorsports enthusiasts need more power and performance than they think they will need when they go out to ride, and that is what Redline delivers. Riders can spend thousands of dollars on upgrading their machines, where at Redline you can order your high end performance components directly from the factory through your local dealer. It doesn't get any better than that for a performance rider."
Michael Killian, vice president of sales and marketing for Redline adds, "All of us at Redline look forward to working with one of NASCAR's great drivers, Greg Biffle, in the promotion and design of our products. We pride ourselves at Redline in producing the highest performing products in motorsports, and having Greg on our side will give us added vision in performance to excel in the marketplace. We feel our dealers will also benefit with the added ties directly to the most brand loyal fans in all of sports, NASCAR fans."
