Honda generators power NASCAR teams

ALPHARETTA, GA—Honda Power Equipment announced a new sponsorship agreement with Dale Earnhardt Inc. (NASCAR) Race Teams within the Sprint Cup Series. Honda’s ultra-quiet EU3000is and powerful EB11000 have been named the teams’ “Official Generators,” supplying technologically-advanced, reliable Honda power both on and off the track.

As an official sponsor, the Honda Generator logo will appear on the power carts of four Earnhardt Inc. drivers: Martin Truex’s #1 Bass Pro Chevrolet; Regan Smith’s #01 Principal Financial Chevrolet; Mark Martin’s #8 U.S. Army Chevrolet; and Paul Menard’s #15 Menard’s Chevrolet.

“Honda generators provide reliable, fuel-efficient power to NASCAR teams and fans alike – in the infield or on the track,” said Steve Bailey, vice president, Honda Power Equipment.  “The Earnhardt name is legendary in motorsports, and we’re proud to be part of this incredible team.”

Honda’s EU3000is generators deliver 3,000 watts of clean, dependable power for race teams and tailgaters.  Exclusive inverter technology eliminates the need for the bulky alternators found on many competitive products, resulting in a package significantly smaller and lighter than conventional units with comparable output.  The same inverter technology delivers clean electrical output with a sine wave equal to AC current from a standard household wall outlet – critical for sensitive electronics where power fluctuations can cause devices to freeze or be interrupted.  The EU3000is also features Honda’s patented Eco-Throttle® technology, which significantly improves fuel efficiency and long-term durability by adjusting power output and engine speed according to load requirements.

Honda’s incredibly powerful EB11000 provides up to 10,500 watts of portable power for residential and commercial applications.  Powered by Honda’s GX620 engine, the generator’s 615cc, twin-cylinder design and advanced technology afford users incredible fuel efficiency – up to 7.5 hours on a single 6.9-gallon tank at 50 percent of rated load – and legendary Honda durability.

Honda Power Equipment markets a complete line of portable generators from 1,000 to 10,500 watts for a variety of commercial, residential, and recreational applications.

Formed by Dale and Teresa Earnhardt in February of 1980, Dale Earnhardt, Inc. has garnered three Daytona 500 trophies, a pair of Busch Series championships and two Craftsman Truck Series championships.
