Zantrex(R)-3 Returns as Primary Sponsor on the Dave Grubnic-driven NHRA Top Fuel Dragster for Kalitta Motorsports

YPSILANTI, Mich., (January 5, 2007) -- Zantrex-3, the nation's number-one-selling high-energy "Super Pill," announced today it that it will return as the primary sponsor Kalitta Motorsports' Top Fuel Dragster driven by "Aussie Dave" Grubnic for the complete 2007 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series. The Zantrex-3 sponsorship returns to Grubnic's 330-mph entry due to popular demand.

"We didn't realize what a huge impact this partnership was making until we took a year off from sponsorship and started hearing from thousands of fans, retailers, and customers who wanted Zantrex-3 back in NHRA," said Gina Gay, Marketing Director of Zoller(R) Laboratories, maker of Zantrex-3. "We're really excited to bring Zantrex-3 back to the NHRA track. The alignment of Zantrex-3 with Top Fuel racing is a perfect fit -- Top Fuel racing is all about energy and rapid results, just like Zantrex-3," "Top Fuel racing has so much energy and excitement, we foresee it as the next 'big thing' in the world of racing. We're proud to be a part of this rapidly growing sport."

Zantrex-3's non-ephedra formula creates unrivaled rapid weight loss and extreme energy. The leading diet supplement utilizes a two-pronged approach, combining a clinically proven weight-loss compound with a powerful xanthine-based stimulant to give increased energy and results.

"This is a terrific way to begin a new year and a new pursuit of the NHRA Top Fuel championship," native-Australian Grubnic said. "I have some really great memories of racing our Zantrex-3 car in 2005, so I'm really looking forward to putting those familiar colors back on the race tracks again across the U.S."

The Zantrex-3 Top Fuel car is wrapped in the familiar electric blue packaging of the Zantrex-3 bottles. Grubnic won his first NHRA national event under the banner of Zantrex-3 in May, 2005, in Topeka, Kans., to become to the first non-native North American to win an NHRA Top Fuel event.

"The growth and popularity of Zantrex-3 has skyrocketed, particularly among a younger, active segment, many of whom are racing fans," said Gay. "We look forward to a successful sponsorship with Kalitta Motorsports."

Top Fuel cars travel a quarter-mile drag strip in less than 4.5 seconds at over 330 mph, accelerating from 0 to 100 mph in less than .8 seconds -- faster than a fighter jet. Grubnic's career-best numbers behind the wheel of his 8,000-horsepower, nitro-fueled Top Fueler are 4.448 seconds and 333.58 mph.
