Kalitta and Mac Tools team up with Cabela's for Fan Appreciation Week.

Ypsilanti, MI, May 24, 2002 - Cabela's, the world's foremost outdoor outfitter for hunting, fishing and outdoor gear has teamed with Doug Kalitta and the Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster team for Fan Appreciation Week at the Cabela's retail location in Dundee, Michigan, June 11-16.

Race fans and outdoor enthusiasts in attendance at Cabela's in Dundee, just west of Detroit, will have a unique opportunity to see and hear the power of an NHRA nitro-fueled Top Fuel dragster on Tuesday, June 11. Kalitta, driver of the Mac Tools/ Kalitta Motorsports 6000 horsepower dragster, will crank his race car and take a few steps on the throttle at 8:30 pm (ET). Doug will sign autographs from 6:30 - 8:30 pm before he climbs into the Mac Tools dragster's cockpit.

"Cabela's is excited about partnering up with Kalitta Motorsports and Mac Tools for our Fan Appreciation Week," said Greg Golab, Cabela's Dundee Store Manager. "Most outdoor enthusiasts are also avid race fans, so we are looking forward to having them visit Cabela's to see the Mac Tools/Kalitta Motorsports dragster display and then come in and see what we have to offer. We greatly appreciate Doug Kalitta and the Mac Tools/Kalitta Motorsports Top Fuel dragster team for participating in this event. We look forward to a great turnout and a successful promotion."

Kalitta Motorsports Marketing Manager Bob Lawson said, "On behalf of everyone at Kalitta Motorsports, we are proud to be able to participate in Cabela's Fan Appreciation Week. Our Mac Tools Top Fuel team is looking forward to interacting with the thousands of outdoor enthusiasts that visit Cabela's every day."

"Because we don't race in the Detroit area, it is great to have the opportunity to show the awesome power of our dragster to everyone at Cabela's and give them something to cheer about. Several members of our team are avid outdoorsmen so being able to represent Mac Tools and participate with Cabela's is something our entire team is excited about."

Other race cars will also be on display during Fan Appreciation Week at Cabela's in Dundee, including Junior Dragsters and the Warrior Racing A/Fuel Dragster driven by Ben Marshall in the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. "Mac Tools is excited about participating in Cabela's Fan Appreciation Week," said Roger Spee, Mac Tools Motorsports Manager. "We look forward to bringing awareness about Mac Tools and our products to all of the outdoors enthusiasts. In addition to our Mac Tools Top Fuel team with Doug Kalitta there to sign autographs and start the dragster, we will have our Mac Tools staff there to display products and answer any technical questions. Mac Tools supports many different motorsports venues and Cabela's Fan Appreciation Week gives us a chance to meet the outdoor fans and thank them supporting our racing endeavors."
