MCLEANSBORO, Ill. (May 15, 2018) – NHRA Top Fuel team Stringer Performance is pleased to announce that Strutmasters.com will have more prominent placement on its Top Fuel dragster driven by Clay Millican for the Heartland Nationals at Heartland Motorsports Park in Topeka, KS, May 18-20 and the Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway, June 15-17.
Strutmasters.com, which first partnered with Stringer Performance in 2017, will have co-primary positioning on the dragster of Millican for both events along with Parts Plus and Great Clips. Millican is the defending winner of the Thunder Valley Nationals, claiming his first ever NHRA win last season at Bristol in an emotional victory on Father’s Day.

Specializing in air-to-non-air suspension conversion kits, Strutmasters.com has become an industry leader in the world of suspension.

“We had the Thunder Valley Nationals on our radar as one of the events we wanted to sponsor but with the way Clay and the Stringer Performance team have been running this season we wanted to jump in as quick as possible and added the Topeka event as well,” said Strutmasters.com owner, Chip Lofton. “Doug Stringer and his team have put forth impressive results so far this season, with Clay most recently breaking the track record at Atlanta on top of three No. 1 qualifiers so far this season. We are extremely proud to be a part of this team.”
Stringer Performance owner Doug Stringer is proud to see Strutmasters.com step into a bigger role with the team.
“Strutmasters.com has been a great partner of our team over the course of the last two seasons,” said Stringer. “I’m excited for them to step into a major partner role for the Heartland Nationals and the Thunder Valley Nationals and to have the opportunity to capitalize on the marketing value associated with primary sponsorship. Bristol especially is a special race for us having won our very first Wally here last year so we have every intention of repeating and taking Strutmasters.com to the Winners Circle.”
