LATICRETE Sprint Racer: Jason Wyllie
Jason Wyllie of Wyllie Tiles is a long time distributor of LATICRETE® products in Tasmania. We are co-sponsoring him this season racing Sprint Cars.
LATICRETE Mazda® Racer: Ron Munnerlyn
Ron Munnerlyn has been a member of the LATICRETE® Racing team since 2006, when LATICRETE sponsored his Spec Miata race car in the 2006 Spec Miata season sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA).
Munnerlyn, LATICRETE Sr, Director of Operations, in the Hamlet, NC plant, is a second-generation racer.
"It’s no secret that racing is an expensive endeavor," says Munnerlyn. "The LATICRETE® sponsorship is a win-win for the both of us, providing exposure for the company and financial support for the race team. The willingness of LATICETE to lend their support and to allow me to carry the LATICETE name across the finish line has meant a lot to me, especially since I haven’t even been with the company for that long. To me, it says a lot about the type of company LATICETE is."
