JEGS to partner with Kalitta Motorsports in 2011

JEGS Mail Order, a world-renowned high-performance auto parts powerhouse, and Kalitta Motorsports, one of the most successful Top Fuel and Funny Car teams in the history of professional drag racing, as an associate sponsor for the team in the 2011 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series.

JEGS’ associate sponsorship will adorn all three of Kalitta Motorsports’ race cars, including the team’s two Top Fuel dragsters, driven by Doug Kalitta and Dave Grubnic, as well as the DHL Funny Car driven by Jeff Arend, beginning at the prestigious Kragen O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, Calif., Feb. 24-27, 2011.

“We are extremely happy to announce our new partnership with JEGS,” said drag racing legend and team owner Connie Kalitta. “JEGS is one of the most respected names in both mail order auto parts and in NHRA Drag Racing. Everyone at Kalitta Motorsports is excited about our team joining the JEGS racing family.”

One of the highlights of the new partnership will be the utilization of the JEGS in-car camera, which will be used on all three Kalitta Motorsports racers and will provide NHRA fans and ESPN viewers with unique and unprecedented footage of the world’s quickest and fastest race cars as they traverse 1,000-ft. tracks in less than four seconds!

“We are excited as a company and a family to have the familiar yellow and black colors of JEGS involved with Kalitta Motorsports,” said Scott “Woody” Woodruff, JEGS Director of Media and Motorsports. “Adding the cars in the Kalitta Motorsports fleet to our highly successful in-car camera program will help add additional excitement to each ESPN broadcast in 2011.”
