Atlantic City, NJ — When the pressure is on race teams to qualify for the “Gambler’s Classic” Indoor Race presented by SoBe Life Water, A-1 Racing Products will be there.
Warminster, Pa.-based A-1 Racing Products has signed on to present Qualifying Night during the two-day, Fri.-Sat. Jan. 18 &19 indoor racing spectacular at Atlantic City, N.J.‘s Boardwalk Hall. The M&R Products TQ Midgets/600cc Micro-Sprints, Slingshots and Champ Karts will all participate in the preliminary action.
Contributing to the excitement of “A-1 Qualifying Night” will be an appearance by NASCAR star Ken Schrader, who will strap into Alan Mollott-prepared No. 51 TQ Midget for the evening. It will be the first Boardwalk Hall attempt by the versatile Fenton, Mo., native.
For the race fans, A-1 Racing Products will supply “ThunderStix” noise-making clappers, which will be available in the A-1 display at Motorsports 2008 presented by VP Racing Fuels, taking place at the nearby Atlantic City Convention Center during the daytime hours Jan. 18-20. The A-1 Racing Products booth will be adjacent to the food court and adjacent to the stage where Ms. Motorsports will be held.
“I think the “A-1 ThunderStix” will be a great way to get the race fans involved in the racing,” said Rob Pierce of A-1 Racing Products. “Last year, we went to the Indoor Race and the action was so good, we wanted something that would make some noise to cheer for our favorite drivers.
“We’re proud to be part of the Indoor Race and contribute to its excitement.”
At the Motorsports 2008 Race Car Show, A-1 Racing Products will be having a major safety equipment sale, including Simpson, Bell, HANS and Ringers. Also, Kelly Hale – sales manager for Longacre Racing Products – will be in the A-1 booth with new Longacre products, including the Wireless Scale Systems.
