SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Red Tide Canopies, headquartered in Salt Lake City, announced today the hiring of NHRA Pro Stock standout and reigning rookie of the year Camrie Caruso as their director of business development.
RedTide Canopies is the premier custom canopy, trade show and outdoor event printing provider. They offer everything from custom canopies, banners, flags, table covers, trade show displays, crew shirts as well as many other products to help promote your business, organization or team.
Caruso, a third-generation drag racer, earned her business administration degree from SUNY Empire State College prior to becoming only the second woman to race NHRA Pro Stock full time. Earlier this season, she earned her first class win in Phoenix.
“I enjoy working with the people at Red Tide,” Caruso said. “The people aspect is really important to me. I need to be surrounded by people who have the same morals and values as me and the same work ethic. I think when you set yourself up with things that don’t line up with your morals, then you’re going to fail.
“You have to be surrounded by people who want to succeed. That’s what I’ve found at Red Tide.”
In addition to working for Red Tide, Caruso is a customer, wearing their SFI-15 custom nomex racing suit during NHRA competition. The product line was recently launched, continuing their mission of providing the products racers need.
Company owner and fellow racer Josh Minson has worked with racers for years. He sees Caruso’s hiring as another way of providing the best possible customer service, even when her schedule, like his, puts her on the road a significant portion of the year.
“I do the same thing being a racer myself,” he said. “I’m always on the road, if not more than at least as much as Camrie. She’s on the Pro Stock side and I’m on the no-prep and drag radial side of racing. There are times we’ll both be out of the office racing. It all fits. I’m a racer, she’s a racer, we’re all racers selling products to racers.”
