DIRTCar Driver Tommy Vigh Jr. Partners with Extreme Energy Solutions and Fast Track to Tackle ARCA Dirt Races
16th August, 2018
HARRISBURG, N.C. - August 15, 2018 - DIRTCar Driver Tommy Vigh Jr. is scheduled to compete at both upcoming ARCA dirt track races: the Allen Crowe 100 at Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Illinois on Sunday, August 19, 2018, and the General Tire Grabber 100 by Federated Auto Parts on Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 2018 at Du Quoin State Fair Grounds in Du Quoin, Illinois.
Vigh is expected to continue to point the momentum to a strong showing, as he carries with him a 15th place finish from his ARCA career debut at Madison International Speedway in the Herr’s Potato Chips 200, June 15, 2018. Vigh also brings with him years of wisdom from his dirt track racing career, where he continues to compete on Saturday nights at the Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York. Vigh stands 5th in points at his home track this season with a number of top five and four top ten finishes.
Vigh will be behind the wheel of equipment supplied by Andy Hillenburg and his Fast Track Racing Enterprises. Vigh will pilot the #10 car of Hillenburg, decorated with the logo of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc. and its product brands, including: SMART Emissions Reducer, Extreme Kleaner, H2O Energy Flow, and Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatments.
Associate sponsors expected to be on the car include: Mendia Studios, Hardware Hank, and Manawa Community Living Center. Affiliated sponsors contributing to this effort include: TAPinto, Project Help, Gravity Design Works, Follow Me Social Media Consultants, and Sam Burlum Business Strategy & Consulting Services.
“Our guys and I are really excited to have an opportunity to have Vigh back behind the wheel. We expect a good run and have taken advantage of the break in the ARCA schedule to prepare for these two races with Vigh,” commented Hillenburg, Owner of Fast Track Enterprises and 1995 ARCA Champion.
“ARCA has been a great platform for showcasing our Company brands, and we feel we will continue to achieve brand exposure having promoted our long time Brand Ambassador, Tommy Vigh Jr., to the ARCA stage,” added Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., the green tech parent company of SMART Emissions Reducer and Extreme Kleaner.
“What makes these two races special for us is that it will feel like home. Our brands and our partnership with Vigh began at the local dirt track. For the last three years, we have competed together on the track, and off the track, we continue to grow our brand identity and connect with grass roots racing fans. We never forget who helped us grow our brands as we transitioned onto the national stage, and so when it came time to promote Vigh to ARCA to help represent our brands, it was an easy decision for us to say yes.”
“When Extreme Energy Solutions shared the plan to make a run and support Vigh for the two ARCA dirt track races, everyone wanted to jump on board to either help contribute to the pool of resources in making the run possible, or provide support leading up to the races from a marketing perspective,” explained Burlum.
Vigh and Extreme are bringing extra help with them to Springfield. Joining Vigh, Fast Track, and Extreme Energy Solutions are the Johannessen Brothers, Steve and Shawn, members of Vigh s DIRTCar Sportsman Pit Crew.
“These guys are always there for me, and I am really glad that they (the Johannessens) get to make the big show. Every week they show up to help me out and are quick to jump in and help do whatever needs to be done to keep racing. I am thankful that Extreme Energy Solutions was able to work it out so they can be there with me in Springfield. These guys really earned the opportunity” expressed Vigh.
Extreme Energy Solutions relationship with Vigh dates back to 2008, when the pair got together for a racing campaign to promote Extreme Energy Solutions entry into the automotive technology field for a couple of seasons, when Vigh drove full fender dirt cars in the Northeast. Extreme and Vigh reunited for the 2016 race where they would begin promoting the company s market ready products: SMART Emissions Reducer, Extreme Kleaner, and H2O Energy Flow.
The success of the Vigh-Extreme relationship resulted in Extreme Energy Solutions consumer products becoming available on the shelf nationwide in over 500+ selected retailer locations, including selected Menards store locations.
Each of the two ARCA dirt track races will be televised live on MAVTV. The Allen Crowe 100, at Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield, Illinois, is scheduled for 1:30 to 3:30 pm (CDT) on Sunday, August 19, 2018, with practice beginning at 9am, followed by time trials and qualifying.
The General Tire Grabber 100 by Federated Auto Parts at Du Quoin State Fairgrounds in Du Quoin, Illinois is scheduled for competition on Monday, September 3, 2018 (Labor Day), from 3:00 to 5:00 pm (CDT), with practice beginning at 9:45am, followed by time trials and qualifying.
