(PRESS RELEASE) WILLIAMSVILLE, NY — Eric Lux, vice president, Rembrandt Charms, has signed with DragonSpeed, joining Christopher Mies, Fabian Schiller, and Devlin DeFrancesco in their bid to capture their first win at this year’s 59th Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona and the third consecutive LMP2 win at the race for the team. Eric is an American Le Mans Series and IMSA Champion and frequent member of the racing endeavors assembled by team owner Elton Julian.

“2021 marks my 18th season competing in sportscars and my 11th Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona. I’ve nearly won there on several occasions and for it to become a reality you need the right team, the right car, and the right teammates. I’ve known Elton as a teammate, team owner, and friend over the past 10 years, and watched the team’s combination of pace and strategy win the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona last year. I have complete confidence in the team and the outstanding teammates Elton has recruited for our program. I cannot wait to race for DragonSpeed at Daytona!” Lux exclaimed.

The Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona features the top racing talent from around the World, including Formula 1, IndyCar, NASCAR and Sports Car Racing. There are 50 confirmed entries for the race and there will be limited number of fans allowed at the venue with social distancing and safety protocols in place.

Rembrandt Charms has a long-standing relationship with DragonSpeed, including two consecutive years of sponsorship during the 2019 and 2020 NTT IndyCar racing seasons. Eric raced to victory with DragonSpeed team principal, Elton Julian, to win nearly half of the races in the 2011 IMSA American Le Mans Series and clinch the Championship. In 2015, Eric raced for DragonSpeed, helping Mercedes-Benz secure its first Championship in North America during the World Challenge season.

The race will air live Saturday, January 30 at 3:30PM EST, on NBC before switching over to NBCSN at 4:30PM EST. The race can be viewed on IMSA TV, TrackPass, NBC app or YouTube.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
