HOUSTON –National Switchgear took a big leap of faith in 2011 when they came on board to serve as the presenting sponsor for the Shea Racing team in Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship. The corporation benefited greatly from the onsite hospitality events for clients, exposing them to the most popular action sport. After scaled-down involvement during the 2012 season, Shea Racing is proud to announce that National Switchgear will be fully on board as the corporate presenting sponsor for the team’s participation in the AMA Supercross East Region.

"We are very pleased to continue our long-term relationship with Tim Shea of Shea Racing as we will be teaming up together for the 2013 AMA Supercross East Coast season,” said Doug Powell, president of National Switchgear. “National Switchgear's business philosophy of integrity and honesty go hand-in-hand with the way Tim operates the team. We have an unbelievable group of people and we are really looking forward to the start of the season on February 16 at Cowboys Stadium.”
