Prolong Supporting Tony Pedregon
POMONA, Calif. – Two-time National Hot Rod Ass’n funny car world champion Tony Pedregon has chosen Prolong Super Lubricants as his primary lubricant sponsor for the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
“We are excited to sponsor Tony Pedregon throughout this racing season. Our products are proved to protect engines and bearings from wear during the extreme pressure of high horsepower engines,” said Jon Apogee, General Manager: Marketing, Domestic Sales and Motorsports, Prolong Super Lubricants. “Not only do Prolong products help prevent metal-to-metal wear by bonding to the metal, but our oil also limits dilution from the nitro and therefore protects bearing surfaces for the entire run. This means teams can utilize key parts run after run saving thousands of dollars.”
Pedregon has 43 career wins, with a career-best elapsed time at 4.041 seconds, and he holds the record of quickest quarter-mile run in funny car history at 4.659 seconds.
