Kalitta Motorsports and Revchem Composites Join Forces in Wide-Ranging Partnership
YPSILANTI, MI (February 4, 2020) — Kalitta Motorsports will be joining forces with Revchem Composites on a diverse marketing partnership being with the 60th annual NHRA Winternationals. The multi-time world championship drag racing team will be working with Revchem Composites, one of the leading composite distribution companies in the world, throughout the course of the season on technical opportunities as well as strategic partnerships with the many corporate partners already aligned with the race team.
“The partnership with Revchem Composites will definitely help Kalitta Motorsports on the track and in the pits,” said Chad Head, General Manager Kalitta Motorsports. “We have already begun to have great conversations with their technical experts to look as improvements on our race cars and we will be introducing them to our marketing partners at the races through our hospitality program. The biggest advantage we see is how well our core values align. Both our organizations are built on increased productivity and excellence.”
Revchem Composites, which is celebrating its 45th anniversary in 2020, has a wide range of applications and business interests that stretch from Aerospace to the Surf Industry, to the Movie Industry as well as the Marine Industry, Sports Industry and Military Applications. Their expertise also has had an impact in the Automobile Industry and in Job Shops around the world. 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.
“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision; all of us here at Revchem Composites are beyond excited about our new relationship with Team Kalitta Motorsports,” said Pete Pendleton, President of Revchem Composites. “For Revchem, Drag racing is in our DNA, dating back to 1975, having grown up here in So Cal, from OCIR to attending the Winternations in Pomona in 1977. We respect all of the accomplishments of the entire Kalitta organization and its objectives. Teamwork is the fuel that will allow this new partnership to attain outstanding results.”
Kalitta Motorsports already uses a variety of products distributed by Revchem Composite in their Michigan based shop, and Revchem will be branded on Doug Kalitta’s Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster’s rear wing throughout the season. Revchem Composites will also be participating in the dynamic business to business pit-side hospitality program Kalitta Motorsports hosts at each NHRA national event.
