MAC Tools signs deal with Kalitta Motorsports Mac Tools and Kalitta Motorsports have announced an extension of the tool company’s primary sponsorship of the Doug Kalitta-driven Top Fuel dragster through the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season.For more than two decades, Mac Tools, a worldwide leader in the automotive tool and equipment business, has been a partner of Kalitta Motorsports in the capacity of either primary or associate sponsor. The famed and record-setting Big Red Mac Tools dragster has rocketed down NHRA national event dragstrips at more than 320 mph since 2001. After the economic crisis in the United States a few years ago, Mac Tools had to step aside as Kalitta’s primary sponsor at the end of the 2008 season but remained an associate sponsor with the team and vowed to return primary sponsorship when possible. Mac Tools kept that promise and again became the primary backer for Kalitta beginning at the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis last fall. “We are extremely honored to have our friends at Mac Tools racing with us for at least three more years,” said Kalitta. “Our partnership with Mac Tools is one of the best and most successful relationships in the history of NHRA Drag Racing. Brett Shaw [president, Mac Tools] and Tony Merritt [director of motorsports] and the entire team at Mac Tools are like members of our family. We are honored to continue racing the Mac Tools dragster for them and all of the great Mac Tools distributors throughout the world.” “Mac Tools have been associated with Kalitta Motorsports and Connie [Kalitta, team owner and drag racing icon] for over 20 years, and we are proud to be extending our partnership with this legendary team for the next several years. This would not be possible without the success of our distributors and support of our loyal customers. This partnership provides our company the opportunity to continue our momentum by increasing the exposure for our products, brand, and to reach those who are interested in 'Being their own Boss' by becoming a Mac Tools franchise,” said Shaw.
