Lumberjacks Compete at the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series sponsored by Ram

The men of the STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Series Championship have been tried and tested, and the results of the Championship Finals are in—Jason Wynyard picked up his 10th overall title, while Arden Cogar Jr. now boasts the U.S. title and is headed to Holland to represent the U.S. in the STS World Championship.  As sponsor of the series, our guys at the Ram brand were able to get together with Arden Cogar Jr. and Roger Phelps, Promotional Communications Manager at STIHL Inc., to hear a little more about the series. Roger and Arden shared their insight about just how well STIHL and Ram® partner up. According to Phelps, “When you look at the brand essence of Ram—tough, hard-working, well-made, quality. All of those elements fit so well with the STIHL brand. Our equipment and our users are the same, …people who love the outdoors… There are so many parallels between the brands, and the fact is we just work well together. Arden Cogar Jr. put it this way: “Ram fits perfectly with the Timbersports series because it personifies outdoorsmanship and the outdoors – and that’s what STIHL Timbersports is all about, preserving a wonderful heritage that has transcended through several generations, including my own family – we’re all big [RAM] people.” We appreciate the guys taking the time to talk with us. Good luck in Holland, Arden, we know you’ll do great!
