BRAMPTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 10, 2015) -

Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this Press Release.

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series second-ranked driver Gary Klutt is chasing the 2015 championship and Trailcon Leasing is along for the exhilarating ride.

Klutt made his NASCAR Canadian Tire Series debut in 2010 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. He earned his first career pole and race win in the 2015 opener on the same track. On Saturday, July 11, Klutt will race at Edmonton International Raceway in the Alberta Has Energy 300. In that race, and in the Velocity Prairie Thunder 250 on July 15 in Saskatoon, he will have sponsorship support from Trailcon Leasing, a Canadian leader in the trucking industry in trailer rental, leasing, and maintenance.

At the heart of the connection between Trailcon and motorsports is Trailcon President Alan Boughton. Boughton is a long-time classic car and racing enthusiast and friends with Gary's father Peter Klutt, owner of Legendary Motorcar Company.

"Peter and I share a love of horsepower and fast cars," Boughton said. "I want to help his son Gary reach his full potential and his goal to win this year's series. NASCAR Canadian Tire Series delivers great races with serious talent and Gary is my pick for the Jostens Rookie of the Year in 2015."

Halton Hills' Klutt has already impressed this season, with one win and three top-10 finishes. He is 22 years old and races in car 59 with the support of vehicle financing company CTL Corp and Legendary Motorcar, as well as crew chief John Fletcher.

"We love being part of this," Boughton said. "It's about talent, drive, excitement, seeing the best possible performance of people and machines - it's just what we do every day at Trailcon."

Trailcon has a fleet of 6,500 trailers, which service for-hire carriers, private fleets, and some of the largest grocery and retail chains in the country. Its dedicated fleet maintenance operation looks after more than 15,000 Trailcon and customer-owned units across Canada. More information about Trailcon is available at trailcon.com.
