Black & Decker® Partners With Richard Petty Motorsports And Driver Marcos Ambrose

TOWSON, Md., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Black & Decker, a division of Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK), today announced a partnership with Richard Petty Motorsports and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Marcos Ambrose. The Black & Decker branded No. 9 Ford Fusion will race at four primary races: Kansas on October 21, Martinsville on October 28, Phoenix on November 11 and Homestead- Miami on November 18.


"I'm honored to have Black & Decker on board our No. 9 Ford Fusion for four of the five remaining races this season," said Ambrose. "As a race team we use tools every weekend and know how important it is that the tools we use are reliable and efficient. Black & Decker is known for their high quality products, so it only makes sense that we showcase some of their new and innovative tools on our car over the next few weeks."

The branded No. 9 car will feature two Black & Decker products that will be launching this fall—the all-new GYRO TM Screwdriver and the MATRIX TM Quick Connect System TM. Gyro is the world's first motion activated screw driver that controls variable speed and direction— an industry-first for a screwdriver.  The Matrix Quick Connect System is an innovative modular tool system built around two different power units and interchangeable attachments to drill, cut, sand, and more.

"Black & Decker is excited about the upcoming opportunity to partner with Richard Petty Motorsports and Marcos Ambrose for four final races of the year. We will be highlighting two of our key product launches on the No. 9 car as well as driving overall brand awareness for Black & Decker. For all of our employees, retail partners and customers we look forward to a great performance by Marcos to bring the No. 9 Black & Decker Ford Fusion to Victory Lane," said John Cunningham President of Black & Decker.
