Nascar Pit Stops at Woodcraft

Comments (0)

What does Woodcraft and Nascar have in common?

You may have guessed it…FedEX Freight!

Woodcraft of Parkersburg, West Virginia put a celebration day together in honor of our FedEx business relationship along with the Joe Gibbs FedEX Nascar Show Reps and the Denny Hamlin#11 Toyota Camry. Mark and Elise Ness (pictured above) were on hand to show the car, and answer Nascar questions. Elise was available at the FedEx Trailer selling Nascar souveniers to all who stopped by. The Ness’s travel the entire United States for the Joe Gibb’s Racing Team, providing insight to Nascar fans using all three of the Toyota Camry #11, #18, and #20 racing cars. Gibb’s has produced 3 championships on the track, in addition to the Daytona 500 and the Brickyard 400 wins. If the name Joe Gibbs sounds familiar, it is because he is also the 3 time winning, Washington Redskins NFL Super Bowl Coach, now retired. For more on Nascar Racing go to and


And to help drive in a crowd typical to race car enthusiasts imaginations (or should I say being egged on by our employees) was our own Betty Secrist offering free hot dogs and a little leg show fun to boot! Click on the photo to see more from Woodcraft!

We had some employees stop by to check out the car, like Kim and Jeff…

Some made a family day of it…

And some came by during their lunch break, like Terry Russell from Securitas, who also put in our security system at our Woodcraft Warehouse…


It would not have been complete without a visit and merchandise pickup/drop-off from our own FedEx Delivery guy, Al Hibbs…

WTAP’s Erin Pulsanti dropped by to interview FedEx Racing Rep Mark Ness.

Speaking of interviews, here is ours with Mark, on the ins and outs of Nascar, Joe Gibbs Racing Team, and a bit on safety and Hamlin’s car…


Woodcraft offered all woodworking vendors a free booth day to setup and show their wares at this special event. One woodworker who took advantage of the free show day was Stanley Pittman. Pittman has been involved in woodworking since 1953, when he first built houses with his father. Stanley loves to scroll saw, and make wooden puzzles today.

When Stanley offers his puzzles at wood shows, it comes with a catch. If you can solve the puzzle the first time upon trying it, you can take that puzzle home free of charge! You may purchase from Stanley by contacting him at I worked on two of his brain teasing puzzles, and Stanley gave up on me, telling me to take them back to the office. Guess I took too long!

Also showing off his craftsmanship was Jason Rose:

Jason loves to turn, and always has a vast supply of beautiful hand-crafted pens to offer. He may be reached at

Stay tuned for more pen information as we will show you some of the latest products, how to build a pen, and a new FREE pen configurator tool coming soon from Woodcraft!

auf Wiedersehen…Frank
