Osborn backs NHRA Top Fuel points leader in 2020 season

July 14, 2020 - Osborn continues its full-throttle support of the drag racing community by sponsoring NHRA Mello Yello Top Fuel points leader Doug Kalitta at the NHRA Summernationals in Indianapolis July 18-19. Beyond Summernationals, Osborn will also be the primary sponsor of Kalitta’s dragster at the NHRA SpringNationals in Houston, and will provide associate branding at the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis; the Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, Tennessee; and the NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas.

“Partnering with Osborn has been a major part of our 2020 season, and we are thrilled to be unveiling the new Osborn-branded livery in Indy,” said Chad Head, Kalitta Motorsports General Manager. “Osborn is more than just a sponsor of Kalitta Motorsports; we are currently using a variety of Osborn brushes and abrasives in our race shop as well as at Kalitta Air. In fact, we created several product performance videos from our Michigan shop showing how Osborn products are used to enhance our team’s race performance. They address topics like deburring in machining centers and prepping cylinder heads.”

Osborn has gained a loyal following among engine builders, fabricators, and machinists on the racing circuit. Foundational Osborn solutions include their proprietary TufWire TM stringer bead brush line; NovoFlex flexible honing tools; Advanced Technology Filament brushes (ATBTM); cut-off wheels; grinding wheels; and flap discs.

“As an example, we know that any loose burr in a cylinder head could break away and catastrophically destroy the engine,” explained Head.  “We use Osborn’s Uni-Lok Quick Change disc brush to deburr cylinder heads in our CNC machines, which reduces production time and removes burrs with a dimensionally changing part. In general, tight tolerances are critical for top performance, and that’s what we are able to achieve with Osborn product solutions.”

In addition, Osborn and Kalitta Motorsports are celebrating their partnership with a season-long sweepstakes of monthly prize giveaways, culminating with a grand prize winner and guest attending the Dodge NHRA Nationals Presented by Pennzoil at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  For more information, visit www.osbornsweepstakes.com.

“We are race fans,” added Tim Ebner, Vice President Product Management & Marketing at Osborn. “Meeting the high-performance demands of drag racing is the proving ground for our products, and we are excited to be partnering with Kalitta, helping to give them a competitive edge.”
