UGS PLM Software Technology Continues to Beat the Competition on the Race Track
UGS PLM Software, a division of Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) and a global
provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, announced UGS PLM Software-sponsored racing teams Joe Gibbs Racing and KB
Racing whose cars are developed with the help of UGS PLM Software technology won the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Allstate 400 at the Brickyard and NHRA Pro
Stock Fram-Autolite NHRA Nationals respectively.
Joe Gibbs Racing driver Tony Stewart, the 2005 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Champion and winner of
the 2002 Winston Cup title, who won the USG Sheetrock 400 at Chicagoland Speedway
on July 15, took the checkered flag again this week at the Allstate 400 at the
Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for back-to-back wins.
KB Racing’s Greg Anderson, the three-time NHRA Pro Stock world champion, won the
Fram-Autolite NHRA Nationals in Sonoma, California, to remain at the top
of the standings for the NHRA Pro Stock Championship. With this win, his
seventh this season, Anderson became one of only 10 drivers in history to win 50 NHRA races.
Anderson reached the 50 win milestone in 189 races, second only to NHRA legend Bob Gilden, who claimed 50 wins in 139 races.
Andretti Green Racing’s Dario Franchitti, who won the Indy 500 earlier in the season,
has won two of the last five races, the Iowa Corn Indy 250 at Iowa Speedway and
the SunTrust Indy Challenge presented by XM Satellite Radio at Richmond
International Raceway. In addition to the above wins Franchitti has placed in
the top three in six of the nine other races this season and continues to lead
the IndyCar Series driver championship.
“UGS PLM Software congratulates Greg Anderson on his milestone victory and the race
teams on their continued success,” said Dave Shirk, executive vice
president of Global Marketing for UGS. “The fact that UGS PLM Software
sponsored race teams continue to bring home victories week after week is proof
that our PLM technology is the best on the race track. UGS PLM Software is
helping our race teams win the same way we help our customers win, by providing
the best PLM technology in the market.”
