SONOMA, Calif., (July 25, 2006) -- To repay the loyalty of three of their devoted associate sponsors, NHRA's Kalitta Motorsports is giving longtime associate sponsors Technicoat Companies, Fischer Honda, and Red Line Oil primary sponsorship signage on the normally Kalitta Air-decorated race car free of charge for one event each during the NHRA's Western Swing in Denver, Seattle, and Sonoma, Calif.

This weekend's, July 28-30, running of the Fram Autolite NHRA Nationals at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., marks the third and final event of the Western Swing and the Kalitta Motorsports Associate Sponsor Appreciation Swing. Kalitta's 7,000 horsepower, nitro-fueled flopper will be adorned with primary sponsorship for Benicia, California-based Red Line Oil for the weekend's event in Sonoma.

"I think this is a great way to reward our associate sponsors," Kalitta said. "Each one of these companies, and all of our associate sponsors, are terrific to work with, and I can't think of any that I don't consider some of the folks involved with that company to be friends with as well.

"Tim Kerrigan and Cameron Evans at Red Line Oil have been friends and supporters of Kalitta Motorsports for years. Their relationship with our whole team has been great for us and for the sport of drag racing."

The Fram Autolite NHRA Nationals is the 15th of 23 national events in the 2006 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series.
