SkillsUSA Logo Runs on the Dollar Shave Club Camaro
Published: March 26, 2018
SkillsUSA’s logo was one of hundreds of companies featured on the No. 2 Dollar Shave Club Chevrolet Camaro at the March 10 NASCAR race at Phoenix ISM Raceway. The driver was rookie Matt Tifft, who was racing for his new team at Richard Childress Racing. SkillsUSA secured one of the coveted spots on the right side of the hood of the car. The race was televised as part of regular NASCAR programming. Thanks to Craig Moore, SkillsUSA’s Senior Manager, Web/Technology, who spotted this opportunity during a Dollar Shave commercial while watching the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Tifft, formerly with Joe Gibbs Racing, came in 7th out of 40 cars in the race.
The one-year countdown to competition has begun as SkillsUSA initiates the process to field a team of talented young skilled trades experts to represent the United States at the 2024 WorldSkills Competition to be held Sept. 10-15 in Lyon, France.
SkillsUSA has once again teamed up with Tractor Supply Company (TSC), Tractor Supply Company Foundation and Carhartt for their annual “Support the Trades” campaign designed to raise awareness of the skilled trades while helping SkillsUSA close the skilled trades gap. Carhartt and TSC have an expanded this year’s “Support the Trades” line of shirts and hats from Carhartt to benefit SkillsUSA.
