Transportation services provider enters eighth year as Official Equipment Truck of the Symetra Tour
DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, February 6, 2013 - The Symetra Tour announced today that Penske Truck Rental, a global transportation service provider, has signed a renewal to remain the Official Equipment Truck of the Symetra Tour. Entering its eighth year in partnership with the LPGA's developmental tour, Penske will receive on-site branding and marketing exposure and will extend its sponsorship of two player performance competitions.
"For the past eight years, Penske has played an integral role in the success of the Symetra Tour," said Symetra Tour CBO Mike Nichols. "Without Penske we wouldn't be able to safely transport the equipment, signage and supplies to our tournaments. We are so pleased to continue our partnership with a company who echoes the core values of our Tour, from commitment to customers, dedication to excellence and innovative thinking."
Penske will supply the Symetra Tour with two equipment trucks for transporting tournament materials to all 15 domestic events this season.

Both the Penske Total Driving Experience (recognizing accuracy and driving distance) and the Penske Accuracy Advantage (recognizing driving accuracy) will award the top performer in each competition with a $500 prize in addition to a trophy at the end of the season.
