On top of that, they're racers, so they know the racing game. We put on many, many miles traveling across the country from race to race and it's a relief to know that Petroff's services are just a phone call away. I highly recommend Petroff Towing to the entire NHRA drag racing community."

Through industry friends, we were able to meet Don (Prudhomme), his family and several of his employees and could not ask for a finer bunch of like-minded people to work with. We share the same passion for racing and are looking forward to an exciting season together."
