June 1, 2016

Bringing the Heat-01ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. (June 1, 2016) – State Water Heaters, a leading manufacturer of commercial and residential water heaters, is teaming up with NASCAR champion and Stewart-Haas Racing driver Kurt Busch for a race-day experience that will “Bring the Heat.”

As part of State Water Heater’s “Bringing the Heat” contest, one lucky commercial plumbing contractor will win a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado and an all-access, at-track race experience for two people to see Stewart-Haas Racing in action. A runner-up commercial water heater installer will win an honorary “pit crew experience” with Kurt Busch at one of the final three races of the season.

For participating wholesaler partners, State Water Heaters will award a winning wholesaler with a towable tailgater trailer and an all-access trip for two to the November race weekend at Martinsville Speedway in Virginia.

“The Contractor Rewards program is designed to build lasting partnerships with the team that represents State products in the field from contractors to wholesalers,” said Jeff Storie, director of marketing for State Water Heaters. “Working with Kurt Busch and Stewart-Haas Racing, State is committed to creating an unforgettable experience for our winning partners.”

The winner will be selected from contractors participating in State’s Contractor Rewards program. To register, contractors installing State’s commercial water heater products need only create an account at and enter the Contractor Rewards code from the yellow label of a State commercial unit.

Wholesalers will be entered every time their contractor registers a qualifying State commercial water heater model sold by their business.

The contest is open until August 31. The winners will be notified in September. State’s program allows plumbing contractors to earn rewards, such as electronics, movies and sporting goods, and even free sales leads for buying and installing State products.
