Crowley Transports Race Car & Equipment

Friday, May 08, 2009

Crowley has added racecars to their list of unique goods transported by the company.
 
Last month, the company transported the J.D. Jaguar race car from San Juan to Jacksonville for the first racing event of the season, the 2009 Sports Car Club of America Trans-Am racing title held at the Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Virginia.
 
Jorge Diaz Sr. who recently announced his decision to include his team in the highly-contested race in Virginia and throughout the U.S. said he has always entrusted the teams' equipment to Crowley for all overseas transportation because of the company's proven track record and reputation.
 
"We are pleased at the opportunity to add race cars to the list of cargo transported from the Puerto Rico to the mainland," said Roberto Lugo, vice president of Puerto Rico services. "The J.D. Jaguar racing team has a huge following on the island and we wish them the best for the 2009 racing season."
 
After the Virginia event, the driver Jorge Arturo Diaz Jr. and his team travel to Mosport, Canada for its second race, followed by races in Mid-Ohio, Portland, Ore. Watkins Glen in New York and later Wisconsin. After the season, Crowley will bring their race car and equipment back to Puerto Rico.
 
Finishing third in the 2003 Championship season, Jorge Diaz Jr. was named "Rookie of the Year" title that same year. In all Diaz has captured 8 podium finishes, including three victories at the 2003 season. Locally, he has won every GT Championship for the past six years with dozens of victories under his belt.
 
Jacksonville-based Crowley Holdings Inc., a holding company of the 117-year-old Crowley Maritime Corporation, is a privately held family and employee-owned company that provides diversified transportation and logistics services in domestic and international markets by means of six operating lines of business: Puerto Rico/Caribbean Liner Services, Latin America Liner Services, Logistics Services, Petroleum Services, Marine Services and Technical Services.
