“We’re excited about having Atlas Copco as a continued partner and sponsor for our 2018 racing season,” said Greg Zipadelli, vice president of competition at SHR. “Their products are crucial in providing the quality compressed air our teams need to get the job done quickly, efficiently and reliably.”

Established by three-time Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Tony Stewart and Haas Automation founder Gene Haas, SHR fields entries for four drivers Kevin Harvick, Aric Almirola, Clint Bowyer and Kurt Busch in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR XFINITY Series. Based in Kannapolis, North Carolina, SHR operates out of a 200,000-square-foot facility with nearly 370 employees.

“There’s very little downtime in racing, so it’s our job to keep the crews supplied with the best possible compressed air that’s guaranteed to perform whenever it’s needed,” said Arfalk. “We can’t wait for the start of the season and our ongoing work with Stewart-Haas Racing.”
