ELGIN, IL – SKF will continue its Pole Position Program in 2007.

SKF’s Pole Position Program offers the latest product information based on many authoritative and expert resources, including a close technical relationship with NASCAR’s Richard Childress Racing. SKF engineers assemble the latest information from their research efforts, both on and off the racetrack, to produce Pole Position Program training materials, including Pole Position Technical Manuals, Pole Position Self-Study Guides, periodic technical tips and newsletters. Additionally, each member receives exclusive access to the Pole Position Online Community along with a periodic e-newsletter containing industry data and technical tips.

As a Pole Position Program member, technicians automatically receive an entry into a drawing to become an honorary pit crew member for Richard Childress Racing’s No. 31, No. 29 or No. 07 Team for the final race of the 2006 season in Homestead-Miami. In 2006, Jeff Grothman of Portage, WI, won the Pole Position Grand Prize and served as Jeff Burton’s honorary pit crew member from the No. 31 pit box.
