Interstate-Batteries-DonlenNORTHBROOK, Ill. — Donlen, the fleet industry’s most customer-centric and technically integrated provider of financing and fleet management solutions, has been selected as the official fleet management partner supplying leasing and management services to Interstate Batteries.

Interstate Batteries came to Donlen requesting the delivery of 157 vehicles wrapped to look like the official Interstate Batteries NASCAR Toyota Camry. Donlen worked with the various Interstate providers to coordinate a timely delivery of 60 vehicles for phase one of the project. The vehicles were debuted at the Texas Motor Speedway today where 60 Interstate distribution partners as well as project partners were invited to test drive the street-legal vehicles. Through its proven processes, customer-focused approach, and innovative fleet technology, Donlen was able to manage the coordination and execution of this request in less than two months.

“Donlen is proud to support partners like Interstate Batteries. Our infrastructure and our people allow us to quickly coordinate and set up delivery to the satisfaction of our customers,” said Brian Wright, Donlen’s senior vice president of products and services. “Our acquisition and upfitting specialists worked with all parties to ensure that we met the deadline of having the street-legal Toyota Camrys ready by event time. We are pleased with the success of the coordination.”

“Donlen helped us to make a never-been-done idea into reality within just a few months,” said Norm Miller, chairman of Interstate Batteries and originator of the concept to create a fleet of street-legal race cars. “That says a lot about their excellent work ethic, how open they are to innovation, – and how willingly they work alongside a number of partners to make it all happen!”
