Drive anywhere around the Reno, Lake Tahoe, Carson City or Virginia City this week, and you’re going to see some amazing sights. No, I don’t mean the stunning mountains, the beautiful lakes or the bright blue Nevada skies. I’m talking about cars. Lots of them. And they have fins, fender skirts, flames and big engines.

EP Minerals' Floor-Dry Oil Spill Absorbent: #1 at the Racetrack

EP Minerals' Global Technical Services Director Larry Galberd and his Blue Bayou race team use EP Minerals' Floor-Dry Oil Absorbent to clean up fuel spills at the racetrack

It's time to check in on our resident racecar driver, Larry Galberd! EP Minerals' Floor-Dry, the #1 oil absorbent and spill clean up for the racetrack, is one of Larry's sponsors. 

If you'll recall from a previous blog post, EP Minerals’ Global Technical Services Director Larry Galberd leads a double life. By day, Larry could be anywhere in the world helping our diatomaceous earth or perlite filtration customers optimize their filtration processes and solve problems. By night and on weekends (and any other chance he gets) Larry is driving hell bent for leather at 140 mph for his Blue Bayou race car team in the ChumpCar Racing Series. Larry and his team are “sponsored” (I use that term loosely) by EP Minerals’ Floor-Dry absorbent, the #1 automobile oil spill cleanup product that can be found at all the major auto supply stores today.

Go Larry! And keep promoting Floor-Dry, the #1 oil absorbent at the racetrack!

Every week, we celebrate one of our 25 EP Way Fundamentals. This week it's Fundamental #4: Make the customer your primary agenda. We maybe should have made that #1, since that's how important this fundamental is to us. To a person, we have a passion for putting the customer first. Every day.

We're different in how we treat our customers, different in how we work with each other, and different in what we do and how we do it. Apparently, our customers think we’re different, too. But in a very good way.

Next week, EP Minerals is hosting the annual Nevada Mining Association's teachers workshop, touring our Clark plant and mine. This year, 55 Northern Nevada teachers will get the incredible experience of touring our plant, a historical lecture on diatomaceous earth (DE), and a mine tour, where they can take as many DE rocks as they can carry with them to share with their students. It's always a fun group and the teachers are genuinely excited about taking what they learn back to their classes.

Rodeo

Yeehaw! It’s Reno Rodeo time! The "Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West," turns 99 years old this year. The 10-day event draws over 140,000 fans, and it’s the 4th richest PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) tour rodeo. Not only does Reno love this event because it’s part of our heritage, but it also brings in $57 million into our economy. The cowboys love this rodeo, too. The main stock contractor, Cotton Rosser says, "Next to the National Finals Rodeo, this is the best one there is. All the top cowboys come here, and we have six or seven of the best stock contractors.”

Thanks to Emily Bell and VinePair for the tequila information.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! So you know that our diatomaceous earth filter aid filters the world's best beers, wines, whiskeys, brandys, sakes and a host of other alcoholic beverages, right? What about the world's largest producer of tequila? Yep, bingo. DE filters tequila, too. It's a great week to celebrate this made-in-Mexico drink, and learn a little about diatomaceous earth filtration and tequila.
