Elite Racing and Allstar Performance Pair Up for Knoxville Nationals

All Star The Knoxville Nationals is the most prestigious event in winged 410 sprint car racing and is the closest thing to an all-star event that these drivers and teams experience. Therefore, it only seems natural that Jason Meyers and his Elite Racing team would team up with an Allstar brand for the upcoming 50th anniversary running of the famed Knoxville Nationals. The Elite Racing Team and driver Jason Meyers announced today that it will partner with Allstar Performance, a division of Lane Automotive, for the 2010 Knoxville Nationals coming up August 11-14.

Meyers' partnership with Allstar Performance began 6 years ago after his first visit to the Lane Automotive facility in 2004. Following the visit, Meyers decided to run an Allstar decal on his car that evening in an effort to show the team's appreciation for the hospitality and support that they had been showed by the Lane Group. Since that evening, the two have worked side-by-side, not only to strengthen the #14 car's program, but to further develop and improve the Allstar Performance product line. Meyers has worked closely with the employee group at Allstar Performance for six years now to improve and enhance their product offerings. As a result of this partnership, Allstar has utilized the latest technology and information to produce cutting edge components throughout the line. "When we met Jason, the first thing he offered was his assistance to enhance our products, which is what we are all about. We decided to get involved with the Elite Racing Team because of how he approached us, which involved more of a partnership rather than just sponsorship support" stated company principal, Doug Lane.

Located in Watervliet, Michigan, Allstar Performance has been integral in the success Elite Racing has had this season, providing the team with high quality parts and service. Allstar Performance is one of the divisions of Lane Automotive, which also includes Motor State Distributing and Lane Collectables. Allstar Performance assures that each part has gone though a rigorous research and development program and is ready for use in the extreme applications of the racing world. Once a need for a particular part is established, Allstar Performance designs, manufactures, and tests the component before adding it to the product lineup. Each part is designed and produced by talented craftsmen, many of whom are racers themselves and know exactly what is required. The entire line of Allstar Performance products are available worldwide from an extensive network of parts dealers, chassis builders and engine shops, who can provide the parts and service necessary for any racing or automotive performance project.

Allstar Performance provides one-of-a-kind parts to Elite Racing to help make the team successful at the track. "Our relationship with Allstar Performance and Lane Automotive has allowed us to refine and further develop our race team into what it is today," Elite Racing driver Jason Meyers stated. "Allstar Performance's devoted team of employees provide high quality parts at an affordable price to racers across the country. Lane Automotive and Allstar Performance are simply "racers helping racers." We are very proud to be part of the Lane group and we are excited about our partnership for the 50th running of the Knoxville Nationals."

Over the next month leading up to the historic running of the 50th Knoxville Nationals, there will be a series of exciting announcements made about Elite Racing/Allstar Performance partnership, including a brand new paint scheme for the #14 car and a limited edition 1/18 scale die cast replica along with a 1/64 scale replica as well. Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements and release dates prior to The Nationals as we share this exciting event with you. The 50th running of the Knoxville Nationals promises to be a thrilling event on and off track for Elite Racing and its partners starting on August 11, with the finale on Saturday night August 14.
