The International Hot Rod Association is pleased to announce that Milodon and Cometic Gaskets, two longtime supporters of IHRA sportsman drag racing, will be returning as a major contingency sponsors for 2013.
Milodon, a name that has become synonymous with premium quality racing components for over 50 years, and Cometic Gaskets, the worldwide leader in shelf stock, custom and short-run gaskets, will once again be a part of the growing IHRA contingency program as the program moves forward into 2013 with more excitement than ever before.
“Our contingency sponsors are the backbone of IHRA sportsman drag racing,” said Robert Jaramillo, IHRA Director of Contingency and Sales. “Great sponsors like Milodon and Cometic Gaskets are what help keep the wheels turning on thousands of racecars around the globe. Their commitment to sportsman drag racing and the contingency program is one way in which these sponsors show that they care and I am glad to have them a part of the IHRA team.”
For over 45 years Milodon has supported both the professional and sportsman racers at not only the national level, but the local divisional level as well. In fact Milodon posts over $250,000 in contingency each year for running Milodon oil pans and decals in not only North America, but Australia and Europe as well.
Cometic Gaskets has been around since 1989 and has become the leading worldwide supplier of gaskets for the performance aftermarket, original equipment and motorsports industries. What began as an 800 square foot office just 23 years ago has grown into a 70,000 square foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing center which ships more than 5,000 types of gaskets to customers worldwide.
