WILMINGTON, Del. — DuPont Professional Products announced the winners of the DuPont Arilon NASCAR Challenge and Sweepstakes. The winners of the Challenge, who were the top five U.S. purchasers of DuPont Arilon insecticide in the designated timeframe, are Moyer & Son, Black Pest Prevention, Orkin, Guardian Pest Solutions and Tri-County Pest Control. In addition, Northwest Exterminating won in the random Sweepstakes drawing.

All six winners attended a NASCAR VIP weekend event Oct. 7-9. The weekend event included air travel for two and tickets to the Kansas City Speedway, plus the opportunity to meet and talk with legendary DuPont sponsored NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon and receive an autographed card. On race day, the winners received tickets to the NASCAR race and full access to the special DuPont Hospitality Tent for food and entertainment, along with the chance to win more prizes.

The Challenge and the Sweepstakes for the DuPont NASCAR Experience ran from March 8 to July 31.

Recently introduced to the pest control market and quickly being chosen by pest management professionals, Arilon offers high-performance insect control, versatility of application uses and a favorable environmental profile, DuPont Professional Products reports. DuPont is packaging the Arilon water-dispersible granules in biodegradable and compostable Terrene packs. These packets contain a premeasured amount of product to reduce handling labor and exposure, minimize waste and eliminate the need to triple-rinse prior to disposal.
