SJF Sponsors Minnesota Outlaws
SJF was proud to sponsor the Minnesota Outlaws team in the 2016 Blizzard Bash demo derby on November 10-13 in Topeka, Kansas. The Blizzard Bash demolition derby event is a national event featuring the best drivers and car builders in the country competing in an arena-based team event. Teams compete in a single elimination, bracket-style competition to advance. The last team standing, wins.
Qualifying drivers of Minnesota Outlaws in the 2016 Blizzard Bash were Brad Haugen driving #2k, Matt Foss driving #25, Nate Foss driving #12x and Neil Shaw driving #50. Brad is the son of Vance Haugen, Sales Specialist at SJF Material Handling Inc. Brad won his first heat in the derby and went on to lose the next round.
The guys are already looking forward to next year.

What do you like most about working at SJF? I like the people, everyone in Sales has been super supportive, as I’ve taken on different roles here. And the ability to try and learn new things, lots of opportunity to grow.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at work? Watching my son Remington play sports. I’m also somewhat of a movie buff and this past year I have become more active with my church. I balance it out with “Chill time” with my family.
What’s your favorite day? My Favorite day of the year is the day after Thanksgiving. My favorite day of the week is Friday… unless it’s football season… then Sunday!
Biggest pet peeve? Just one? The first thing that comes to mind is interrupting. Our society, conversationally, is really going down hill.
Name something about you, that people would be surprised to know: I’ve moved 37 times in my life. Yeah, and I’m only 50.
What question would you like to answer that you didn’t get asked: What one person is the biggest influence in your life? Hands down, my son Remington.
