USA Compression Partners, LP (NYSE:USAC) announced that it has become a proud sponsor of the Ron Capps funny car in 2015, owned by Don Schumacher Racing ("DSR"). As both organizations deal with high powered engines and rely on the dedication and experience of highly-skilled employees, USA Compression Partners and Don Schumacher Racing are a perfect match.

USA Compression Partners is one of the nation's largest providers of large horsepower compression services for infrastructure applications involving natural gas and crude oil, while DSR is the most dominant organization in 320-mph professional drag racing - where its teams have won 253 national event titles.

"Many of our customers and employees love horsepower and compression. It is at the heart of what we do at USA Compression. The sponsorship with DSR and Ron Capps is such a natural fit. Our customers and employees enjoy attending various races around the country and this sponsorship with DSR continues to demonstrate our commitment to walking the talk. We love horsepower and compression and nothing speaks that language better than a 10,000 horsepower top fuel funny car," said Eric Long, CEO of USA Compression.

Based in Austin, TX, USA Compression Partners understands the value of horsepower. It is horsepower that powers the compression their customers need to transport natural gas and oil. USA Compression's compressor fleet includes high performance engines that can generate up to 5,000 horsepower per unit.

"USA Compression and DSR rely on horsepower and the latest technology to get the job done," said Don Schumacher, owner of DSR and Schumacher Electric Corp., one of the world's largest manufacturers of battery chargers. "We're proud DSR can have a marketing partner like USA Compression that plays such an important role in delivering natural gas and crude oil to customers throughout our country."
