A1 Power Equipment Announces Title Sponsorship of Scott Pierce’s GP-55 Grand Prix World Hydroplane

Scott Pierce

As the Official Power Equipment Provider for the inaugural 2017 Evansville HydroFest™, A1 Power is proud to announce that we are taking our involvement a step further as the Title Sponsor for the GP-55 Grand Prix World hydroplane.  The decision to sponsor the GP-55 is a natural extension of A1 Power’s core business of providing power, strength, and speed to our customers for work or play with our powerful and agile UTV’s, our full line of zero turn mowers for faster mowing times, and our extensive line of trailers to get your equipment from one place to another.


In addition to selling great products with brand names such as Cub Cadet, Hustler, Honda, SCAG and Corn Pro Trailers, A1 Power also services all makes and brands of power equipment, and any time A1 Power has a chance to be involved in a partnership such as the GP-55 that blends speed and power, it’s an opportunity we can’t pass up.


As a business based in Newburgh, A1 Power also feels that by having a local Title Sponsor involved in the largest class of hydroplane in this year’s Evansville HydroFest™, our contribution to fund the GP-55 is in effect providing our customers in the Newburgh area the opportunity to cheer on one of the biggest, fastest, loudest, and baddest boats on the water as if it were your very own.


A1 Power is the first local business to become a local Title Sponsor of an Evansville HydroFest™ race team in the highest class of boats participating, and Robert Saladin, Owner and President of A1 Power commented:  “We’re in the power business whether it’s mowers, UTV’s or trailers to haul your equipment, so sponsoring the top class of hydroplane just seemed like a natural extension of our business.  Sponsoring the GP-55, as well as being the Official Power Equipment Provider, is important to A1 Power.   Local businesses need to support high profile events like the Evansville HydroFest™ to enhance the Tri-State’s enrichment.  By sponsoring the GP-55, our customers and the residents of Newburgh have a vested interest in cheering on a boat with a local connection.”


To encourage your personal involvement, the GP-55 will be on display at A1 Power Equipment in Newburgh on Wednesday, June 28th from Noon to 2 pm.  This is your chance to see the GP-55, the 75’ boat hauler and the owner of the GP-55, Scotty Pierce for autographs and pictures.  For those who follow the hydroplane circuit, Scotty Pierce is the former driver of the famous unlimited class hydroplane Miss Budweiser and the winner of Evansville’s 1991Thunder on the Ohio.
