ORANGEVILLE, ON – During the IHRA National event at the Grand Bend Motorplex recently, Katie Ward, driver of Hinbest Racing’s Quick 32 Sportsman Series top dragster, was on her way to winning the Top ET class when her car suffered catastrophic engine failure followed by a major nitrous explosion.
“We suffered a blow, that’s for sure, however we don’t believe in giving up.” Katie said after the incident. “We were out for the season, with no money to rebuild and be competitive.”
“But with the can-do attitude of our team, we went out and built a marketing package for the local NAPA Auto Pro facilities. They all came on board to support our team and were pleased to help us continue racing in 2011.”
Our new team sponsors are:
Erskine’s Service Centre – NAPA Auto Pro – Orangeville, ON
Bernard’s Quality Cars – NAPA Auto Pro – Flesherton, ON
Auto Centre – NAPA Auto Pro – Shelburne, ON
Amaranth Auto – NAPA Auto Pro, Amaranth, ON
We also received support to rebuild from Ideal Supply, and the Canadian Automotive Institute. These two companies are the best in their field and continually support the community.
