She is the only female currently competing in the 2016 LOORRS.

“I’m excited to be working with Gates this year,” said Burgess. “It is an honor to represent such a longstanding brand in the industry as well as a manufacturer that really stands behind the quality of its products.”

The company says her depth of automotive knowledge will allow her to speak with authority on topics of automotive repair and replacement.

“We are thrilled to sponsor Sarah Burgess during the 2016 season,” said Jack Ramsey, Gates senior vice president, automotive aftermarket. “Her impressive professional resume and knowledge base as well as her ability to connect with our market make her an ideal ambassador for the Gates brand.”
