AKE Safety Equipment (AKE) and Illini State Pullers (ISP) Tractor Pulling Extend Relationship for another Year Providing the Best in Fire Suppression – STOP-FYRE Fire Extinguishers – To All 2015 Tractor Pulls


Rochester, MN (AKE Safety Equipment (AKE)) March 30, 2015:


ISP and STOP-FYRE’s “Official Fire Extinguisher” Standing Means Safer Pulls:

2015 will see the return of the world’s best fire protection through much of Illinois and Wisconsin during the ISP truck and tractor pulling circuit. Because of the qualities which make STOP-FYRE so coveted in the tractor pulling and motorsports world, ISP has requested their events have AKE’s fire extinguishers for the 4th year in a row.


ISP’s Jason Yakey supports the return of STOP-FYRE fire extinguishers:

“We have many vehicles, events, staff, and fans that are very important to us. It is up to our organization to take the initiative and know what is out there for fire suppression. We need something that is very easy to store, fast and easy to use, requires little maintenance, and – most importantly – is non-damaging to the costly vehicles our competitors use. For 2015, we again find our solution in STOP-FYRE – The World’s BEST Fire Extinguisher.”


AKE’s Director of Marketing – Patrick Smith – commends ISP’s drive for safety:

“Here we see a regional organization with tractor pulling that understands the limitations of tradition fire extinguishers. We see that the professionals in fire safety have done their homework and sought out what they believe to be the best. You have a group dedicated to providing the best safety they can to their fans, contestants, and staff. I can’t stress enough the milestone that Jason and his group have reached in getting STOP-FYRE at each event for another year. These folks are ahead of the game.”


STOP-FYRE interest within professional motorsports rising:

ISP’s sponsorship marks the 3rd renewal amongst 7 total motorsports sponsorships for AKE’s STOP-FYRE fire extinguishers. The sponsorships range from truck and tractor pulling groups to monster truck car smashing and off-roading events throughout the nation.
