Steve Matusek, president of Aeromotive, would die to drive a Top Fuel car, but in the meantime he and the rest of the Aeromotive team have joined forces with Hartley Racing for the NHRA O’Reilly SummerNationals in Topeka May 28-31, 2009. To help celebrate Aeromotive’s 15th Anniversary, they are getting their logo to go faster than it has ever been before. We here at BangShift.com can tell you it’s cool as hell to see your name on the side of one of the 300-inch diggers, and can only imagine the excitement that must be brewing over at Aeromotive’s headquarters. Besides the Hartely Racing Team’s entry in Top Fuel, Aeromotive will also be represented in Super Comp and Comp by Steve Matusek in his CobraJet-powered dragster and familiar twin-turbo CobraJet Mustang.

AEROMOTIVE TEAMS UP WITH HARTLEY RACING FOR THE 2009 NHRA O’REILLY SUMMER NATIONALS
Lenexa, KS – May 2009 – Aeromotive has teamed up with Joe Hartley and Hartley Racing for a 1 race sponsorship of the Top Fuel Dragster team. Aeromotive will be the title sponsor for driver Joe Hartley at the 2009 NHRA O’Reilly Summer Nationals in Topeka, Kansas May 29-31
“We’ve known the Hartley crew for several years now and we couldn’t be any more excited to be getting involved with them. We wanted to show them our full support on their first full season, especially at our home track in Topeka, Kansas.” said Steve Matusek, Aeromotive President.
Driver, Joe Hartley is coming off of several good performances at the start of the season and returning to the same track where just last year, he qualified No. 1. In addition to Hartley’s recent success and attention, Aeromotive is celebrating their 15th Year Anniversary and doing so in a big way at this year’s NHRA Summer Nationals with a huge bash for some of their loyal supporters and the debut of their new Ford powered Cobra Jet Dragster that will race in Super Comp driven by Aeromotive President, Steve Matusek.
“When you have similar people and similar philosophies, it’s a recipe for success. We are looking to support Hartley in his campaign and use his name and reputation to help promote our company and our success,” said Matusek. “They represent a lot of the same values that we take very serious in our relentless pursuit to make the best Fuel System components possible. Plus… their car just looks cool!” Look for Hartley’s Top Fuel Dragster to be decorated in Aeromotive with particular attention to the 15th Anniversary banner, a common theme this year in Topeka at the O’Reilly Summer Nationals. In addition to Aeromotive, Hartley racing has received additional support for this race from Reser’s Fine Foods and The Super 8 at Forbes Landing.
