POMONA, Calif. – Drag racing enthusiasts at the 2014 SEMA Show are encouraged to stop by the Prolong® Super Lubricants booth #35298, South Hall, to meet two-time National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) funny car world champion Tony Pedregon on Tuesday, November 4 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Wednesday, November 5 from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Prolong® Super Lubricants is the primary lubricant sponsor for Pedregon in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Pedregon has 43 career wins, with a career-best 1,000-foot elapsed time of 4.041 seconds, and he holds the world record of quickest quarter-mile run in funny car history of 4.659 seconds.
“We are excited to sponsor Tony Pedregon throughout this racing season. Our products are proved to protect engines and bearings from wear during the extreme pressure of high horsepower engines,” said Jon Apogee, General Manager: Marketing, Domestic Sales and Motorsports, Prolong Super Lubricants. “Not only do Prolong products help prevent metal-to-metal wear by bonding to the metal, but our oil also limits dilution from the nitro and therefore protects bearing surfaces for the entire run. This means teams can utilize key parts run after run saving thousands of dollars.”
