Phoenix, AZ - November 07, 2013 - (PR.com) - As recognition for ServiceMaster franchise owner Jeff Jackson’s dedication to the Phoenix area, ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore have appointed him as the honorary starter for Saturday’s ServiceMaster 200 at Phoenix International Raceway. The local franchise owner will wave the green flag at the beginning of the 200-lap event, signaling the start of the race.
"It’s a tremendous opportunity to be named honorary starter," Jackson said. "On behalf of ServiceMaster franchise owners around the country, I am excited to represent them with this honor. I can’t imagine how it will feel being in the flag stand when the cars roar by on that first lap."
"Jeff’s dedication to ServiceMaster and the local community make him the perfect representative of our brand for the ServiceMaster 200," said Tom Coba, president of ServiceMaster Clean and ServiceMaster Restore. "We are thrilled to have him as an ambassador at this weekend’s race."
