Team ACPA Wins First Pumper 500 Race

Following this past October’s ACPA strategic planning session held in conjunction with the fall board meeting, attendees competed in the first ever “ACPA Pumper 500” go-kart race at K1 Racing Center in Torrance, California.

Over 50 racers competed for the best time overall, as well participated as a team competition sponsored by NBIS Insurance; DY Concrete Pumps; Putzmeister America; Longhorn Line Pumps and the ACPA. Entry fees for the team-building event were contributed to the association’s political action fund, ACPA PumpPAC, raising over $3,000.

Danny Andrews of Andrews Concrete Pumping won best time overall and received $200 in prize money. Team ACPA took first place in the team competition, followed by Longhorn Line Pumps and NBIS Insurance. Each member of winning team ACPA received $100, along with bragging rights for the next event.

Due to the tremendous success of this year’s race, plans are already underway for another ACPA Pumper 500 to be held at a future ACPA event.
