Top-selling VIP contractors win all-expenses-paid trip to Andretti Gordon Racing School.

Lochinvar Corp. recently awarded its first group of top-selling contractors with an all-expenses-paid trip to Tennessee for the inaugural VIP Extreme Event. The company revamped its VIP Contractor Program this year, and part of its new prize package is an enhanced version of its Nashville Experience awarded in the past.

The 12 VIP Contractors with the highest sales of Lochinvar’s residential boiler lines ― the KNIGHT®, Efficiency+®, and Solution™ Heating Boilers ― headed to Nashville for an action-packed adventure April 1-3. Another 12 top-selling VIP Contractors will be invited to take part in the second installment of the Extreme Event in July.

The winners took part in an advanced training session at Lochinvar's state-of-the-art facility, toured the manufacturing plant and attended a roundtable meeting with the engineering, technical service, sales and marketing teams. The second day’s activities took place at the Nashville Super Speedway, where the contractors had the opportunity to ride shotgun along with a professionally trained driver from the Andretti Gordon Racing School for three laps, experiencing speeds up to 150 mph.
