The company, which is a provider of financial security for several unions and their members, will adorn the No. 16 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro in the second-annual O’Reilly Auto Parts 150 on July 8.
“We are thrilled to partner with LiUNA member, Tyler Ankrum, on his NO. 16 for the upcoming NASCAR Truck race at Mid-Ohio,” said Brian Hale, Ullico President and COO. “As the only labor-owned insurance and investment company, Ullico has been a champion for the American worker since 1927. We work to empower unions and their members by investing in projects that put them to work and by providing insurance that protects them and their families. Sponsoring a union member like Tyler as he races in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series was one more way to power that mission. On behalf of everyone at Ullico, we wish him much success in Ohio.”
Ullico is a long-standing partner of the Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA), which has partnered with Ankrum, a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series winner, for several years, including the last two seasons with Hattori Racing Enterprises.
“It’s an honor to represent Ullico at Mid-Ohio,” said Tyler Ankrum, driver of the No. 16 Ullico Toyota Tundra TRD Pro. “As a LIUNA member myself, it is important to partner with union supported companies, like Ullico. I have had the opportunity to learn more about their impact on members and their families at a few of the conferences I have attended recently, and they are doing remarkable things for union members’ financial security. This partnership is a winning combination for both parties.”
For more than 95 years, the company has been protecting and growing the North American labor movement with world-class insurance and investment products for union members, union leaders and union fund benefits. Ullico ensures that union dollars work for union members.
Ankrum, in his second year for Hattori Racing Enterprises, currently sits 15th in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point standings, after scoring a single top-five result at Circuit of The Americas, and four top-10 results.
