To set the pace for 2009, Perma-Cote, Gilmer, Texas, a manufacturer of PVC-coated galvanized rigid conduit, recently invited a number of its sales representatives to the Texas Motor Speedway for the Texas Driving Experience with special guest Johnny Rutherford.

Rutherford is a racing legend, one of eight drivers to win the Indianapolis 500 at least three times: in 1974, 1976 and 1980. He retired from racing before the start of the 1994 Indianapolis 500 and now serves as an official with the Indy Racing League, driving the pace car for all IRL races, except the ceremonial pace car during the start of the Indianapolis 500.
