It′s a feeling you can only experience in motorsports: deafening horsepower breaking the threshold of 300 mph in less time than it takes you to crack a smile; tackling the natural terrain and launching over 150 feet in the air before you can blink.
Since 1967, Honeywell Consumer Products Group (CPG) brands–Prestone, FRAM, Autolite and Bendix–have actively participated in the world of racing. As avid sponsors in the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and the World Series of Off-Road Racing (WSORR), Honeywell CPG has relationships with a number of drivers who constantly push the brand′s products to the most extreme conditions.
After driving to
another top-ten finish in points last season, Cory "Mac" McClenathan will
continue his partnership with FRAM into 2008. McClenathan has fifteen
top-ten finishes in the NHRA POWERade Top Fuel points standings and ranks
fifth all-time on the Top Fuel win list.
Tony Pedregon, the 2007 NHRA POWERade Nitro Funny Car World Champion, is also a part of the Honeywell CPG racing family. His team secured an associate sponsorship agreement with the Prestone brand for the 2008 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing season.
In the WSORR circuit, Dave Waldvogel pushed his Bendix sponsored truck to victory in back-to-back championships and was recently recognized as SRT Driver of the Year for his performance in 2007. Waldvogel will once again team up with Bendix, his primary sponsor, to tackle another promising season in off-road racing.
Additional drivers that represent Honeywell CPG in motorsports include Tony Schumacher and Brandon Bernstein, who compete in Top Fuel; John Force and Ron Capps, who race in Funny Car; and Jeg Coughlin, Greg Anderson, and Jason Line who compete in Pro Stock.
