Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete has been sponsoring junior racer Joey Ternullo, who continues to set unprecedented records in his young racing career. At Waterford, Conn., Speedbowl’s final Wild ‘n Wacky race program of the season, which was held Sept. 11, the track championship was claimed by Ternullo. With this victory, he became the youngest champion in the history of the Legend Cars division…at 14 years of age.
Joey is the son of Joe Ternullo of Middletown Ceramic Tile Co., a firm that has been using Laticrete materials and methods for over 50 years. Laticrete began sponsoring Joey a few years ago. According to his father, Joe Sr., “Just like Laticrete keeps providing companies like ours with winning solutions relative to the installation of tile and stone, Joey keeps winning races on behalf his sponsor.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of my son,” he added, “or the family-focused company, which has been sponsoring his efforts since day one. Joey’s car is painted in the exact same colors as the Laticrete logo, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.”
After winning the race and being heralded as the youngest driver in his division ever to do so, young Ternullo graciously accepted his trophy and dedicated his efforts to Laticrete.
