With the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello season kicking off in Pomona last weekend the news around the sport is really clipping along. We have some good news on the pro stock motorcycle front as the crew at Prolong has signed on to sponsor racer Freddie Camarena for the 2016 season. The pro stock motorcycle racers have a 14 race series that they contest beginning at the vaunted Amalie Oil Gator Nationals in Gainesville, Florida.
Camarena has been a stalwart in the class starting off in the late 1990s and with this backing from Prolong he looks to better his best numbers and hopefully collect his first career pro stock motorcycle Wally during the year. Prolong has several competition designed lubricants that are used in applications like nitro funny cars and dragsters as well as naturally aspirated gasoline burning targeted products as well.
Congrats on the deal we we wish Freddie and Prolong great success in 2016.
