JR Todd Takes on 2015 NHRA Mello Yello Season with New Red Line Livery
Red Line® Synthetic Oil is proud to announce its primary sponsorship of the Kalitta Motorsports Top Fuel Dragster and driver JR Todd in the NHRA Mello Yellow® Drag Racing Series, beginning with the opening round in Pomona, Calif., Feb 6-8, 2015. Red Line Oil will sponsor the team at selected events throughout the year.
“Red Line’s closest relationship in racing is with the Kalitta organization,” said Cameron Evans, Red Line president. “The opportunity to work even closer with the team came about and we welcomed the opportunity to brand the car. We feel that JR Todd is one of NHRA’s best drivers and to brand the car that Connie Kalitta personally runs is great fun for our customers and employees. We think the fans will love the new livery.”
“We’ve been proud to represent Red Line Oil for close to 15 years,” said Jim Oberhofer, Vice President of Operations at Kalitta Motorsports. “They’ve been one of our most supportive associates through those years and we’re excited to grow the relationship by running the primary colors of Red Line. Connie and JR are ready to get out there and give the fans a good show with the Red Line Oil dragster.”
J.R. Todd, driver of the Red Line Oil dragster added, “I am excited about our new look with Red Line Oil car and look forward to representing Red Line with some great results at the Winternationals. We’re ready to get the season started and we’re thrilled to start the year off with such a great team. We can’t thank Cameron Evans and the entire Red Line family enough for the opportunity.”
