SERVICEMASTER CLEAN RECOGNIZES NAVY VET
A local veteran was honored this past weekend for his dedication and service both on and off the track at the ServiceMaster 200 at Phoenix International Raceway. ServiceMaster Clean presented Steve Lohn, a PIR employee who previously served in the Navy, with the ServiceMaster Clean Extra Mile Award for his work at the raceway.
For more than 10 years, Lohn has been a key player at Phoenix International Raceway. In his current role, he oversees the safer wall and track fence repair team for all the track’s events.
“Steve has been a partner to Phoenix International Raceway and has loyally managed the standby team for the catch fence and safer wall repairs for years,” said Lee Baumgarten, director of operations at Phoenix International Raceway. “His presence at the track instills confidence in the NASCAR team of officials that PIR is prepared and ready to react, if needed, in this key area of track repairs. Steve always has a smile on his face and is ready to help anyone at any time.”
Away from the track, Lohn owns his own company called Metal Tec fabrication. The 13-year-old business does all of the SAFER wall and fence repairs for Phoenix International Raceway, Auto Club Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“Lohn’s commitment to the track and its safety embodies the values of the ServiceMaster Extra Mile Award,” said Tom Coba, president of ServiceMaster Clean and Merry Maids. “His enthusiasm, work ethic and willingness to help have earned him this recognition.”
Since its inception in 2010, the ServiceMaster Clean Extra Mile Award has recognized 38 track team members across the country. Award recipients have been key members of full-time track staff and dedicated volunteers selected by track management personnel.
Each award winner’s name is engraved on a plaque that is displayed at the track where the individual works or volunteers. A personal plaque also is presented to recipients during the track’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekend.
Just like a ServiceMaster Clean caution signals a call for quick and professional action by the track services team and equipment on the race track, it’s the same when you call 800-RESPOND if disaster strikes your home or business. It means cleaning and restoration is going to be done quickly and professionally by America’s number one cleaning team.
