Cool Shirt

Officials from the United States Super Truck are excited to announce Cool Shirt as a new Sponsor for 2011. The invention that launched Shafer Enterprises and Cool Shirt® was a cooling vest for surgeons to use in the operating room. Rich Shafer, the company’s founder, spent many years working beside surgeons for hours under hot operating room lights as a distributor for replacement knees, hips, etc. In a true entrepreneurial spirit, Rich saw the opportunity to help the doctors that were helping the patients and the Surgeon’s Cool Vest was born. Since 1987, Shafer Enterprises has grown exponentially to become the world leader in personal cooling systems for surgeons, racecar drivers, football players, fire/emergency services/hazmat, military and industrial workers. Using NASA study guidelines, Cool Shirt® active cooling systems help people manage body heat in extreme environments using circulating temperature-controlled cool water.
For 2011 Cool Shirt will be awarding "Cool Bucks" at each USST National, Great Lakes, and Southern Series Event. Cool Bucks are $100.00 Gift Certificates towards a purchase of $300.00 or more. Cool Shirt has also loaned the USST 2 Cooling Systems that will be randomly distributed to different Teams at each event for the Drivers to try out. And if that was not enough Cool Shirt is going to award each USST Series Champion a complete Cool Shirt System at the end of the 2011 Season. We would like to thank Cool Shirt for their support and we look forward to working with them in 2011 and beyond. Please go to for more information on all the products Cool Shirt has to offer.
