Waitsfield, VT, March 19, 2012 – Pyrofax Energy is proud to sponsor the Race to Read Program, which encourages students living in Vermont to read as many books as they can. Elementary aged children that read fifteen (15) books will have the opportunity to sign the #39 racecar driven by Troy Kinsgbury of VG Racing.
Students that complete the challenge will sign Troy Kingsbury's racecar just in time for the 2012 racing season at Thunder Road and will help VG Racing in their attempt to win the 2012 Thunder Road Car Show. Each student's autograph will also ride on the car for the entire 2012 season.
Troy Kingsbury is proud to be a part of Race to Read. "Reading allows the imagination to grow and opens up a whole new world for children. I'm excited to participate in the Race to Read because I get to help students realize how great reading is, as well as make a positive impact on students' education," Troy explains.
This will be Troy's fourth year of racing at Thunder Road. Last year Troy won the Eddie Carrol Sportsman Award and finished 4th overall in points.
Troy has been a customer of Pyrofax Energy since they acquired FG White Energy several years ago. "I have depended on Pyrofax for the last several years to keep our business going and they have done an outstanding job. From the heating fuel to keep us warm to the propane that we use to keep our deli fired up for the hot meals for our customers, Pyrofax has kept us covered. "
"Pyrofax Energy is excited to participate in such an incredible program. Motivating children to read by rewarding them with the opportunity to be a part of something as exciting as Thunder Road and racing is a great idea. And to have Troy, a loyal customer, be the face of such an inspiring program motivated us to get involved" explains Dave Weiler, Division President of Northern New England.
As a new program this year, Pyrofax Energy hopes Race to Read will grow to a statewide movement to encourage students of all ages to enjoy reading. Pyrofax Energy believes that literacy is an important life tool that not only helps children to navigate their way through school, but is also a necessity to navigate throughout life.
