YPSILANTI, MI (May 22, 2021) — At the beginning of the 2021 NHRA season Revchem Composites announced it was extending its relationship with Kalitta Motorsports starting at the 52nd annual NHRA Gatornationals. As the season advances to its fifth race of the season Revchem Composites, one of the leading composite distribution companies in the United States, is increasing their branding presence on Shawn Langdon’s DHL Kalitta Air Top Fuel Dragster to include branding on the highly visible rear wing.
“Revchem Composites wanted to use our race cars as an even bigger platform to promote their brand so we are excited to help them with higher visibility on-car branding with the rear wing of the DHL Kalitta Air Top Fuel dragster,” said Chad Head, General Manager Kalitta Motorsports. “As I said last year when this relationship started, the biggest advantage we see is how well our core values align. Both our organizations are built on increased productivity and excellence. Raising their profile on these two race cars is another big step forward.”
Revchem Composites, which is celebrated its 46th anniversary this month, has a wide range of applications and business interests that stretch from aerospace and military applications to movies, marine, surf, and the sports industries. As a family-owned and operated business, Revchem Composites has been an active exhibitor at SEMA and PRI for many years, so the affiliation with Kalitta Motorsports was a natural extension of that history.
“Everyone at Revchem Composites was excited about extending our relationship with the Kalitta Motorsports group as we prepared to embrace the 2021 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Season. Additional branding on Shawn’s Top Fuel dragster adds to this effort,” said Pete Pendleton, President of Revchem Composites, Inc. “We are looking forward to continuing to build outstanding new business to business relationships, both on and off the track with all the other valuable sponsorship partners who support Team Kalitta”.
Kalitta Motorsports uses a variety of products distributed by Revchem Composite in their Michigan based shop, and Revchem was branded on Doug Kalitta’s Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster’s rear wing throughout the season last year. Moving forward Revchem will have a larger presence on the DHL Kalitta Air Top Fuel dragster driven by Shawn Langdon as well as branding on J.R. Todd’s DHL Toyota Camry Funny Car.
