Default Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge at Fun Ford Weekend Events

Kansas City, Mo., February 2, 2012 – Fun Ford Weekend officials welcome Aeromotive, Inc. as Series Sponsor of both the Fun Ford Weekend and Super Chevy Show events for 2012. Based in Lenexa, Kansas, Aeromotive is the industry's leading manufacturer of high-flow, high-horsepower aftermarket fuel systems for a wide range of street-based and purpose-built race cars.

“We're very excited to have Aeromotive join both series as a sponsor,” says Jeff Lacina, Marketing Director of the Fun Ford Weekend Series. “Top to bottom, Aeromotive, their products, their dealers and of course, their customers are all about performance. We're looking forward to helping Aeromotive and their dealers and distributors reach a whole new level of grassroots performance enthusiast as well as the high-horsepower and championship-winning race vehicles that their racer customers are known for building.”

“This is a unique opportunity for us,” said Jesse Powell of Aeromotive. “We are extremely excited to partner with both Fun Ford Weekends and Super Chevy Shows. Both have been such a staple in our industry, its great to be apart of their new direction. We hope that we can not only add to the draw for the participant and the fan but also take advantage of the opportunity to be side by side with our core consumer.”

The Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge

In addition to their Fun Ford Weekend and Super Chevy Show event sponsorship, Aeromotive will also be the sponsor of the Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge, a special class devoted to exciting, side-by-side racing of the new generation of Cobra Jet Mustangs produced by Ford Racing. Based upon their industry-leading technology and reliable products, Aeromotive is the OE supplier of the fuel systems for all Cobra Jet race cars produced since 2008.
“To be a part of a legend, the Ford Cobra Jet, is a truly something special. Writing your name in the history books is not something that most people get a chance at. For a manufacturer, its extremely rare,” Powell continued. “These are awesome cars and any chance we have to get these on the race track is a treat for the owners as well as the fans. We want to show our support to both Ford and to the owners of these vehicles by providing an opportunity to race.”

The inagural Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge will be contested at the season-opening Fun Ford Weekend event at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas, March 23-24, followed by events at all of the 2012 Fun Ford Weekend Series events.

“Racers and spectators alike are in for an awesome show of Ford horsepower with the Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge,” said Lacina. “Right from Ford Racing, these are awesome race cars, but once the owners and race teams get a hold of them, they are amazingly fast race cars. There are some very colorful cars – and owners – in the Cobra Jet “family”. Thanks to Aeromotive and the owners of the Fun Ford Weekend Series, the Cobra Jet Challenge will be a highlight of the weekend for the racers and spectators.”

Complete rules for the 2012 Aeromotive Cobra Jet Challenge will be announced during the week of February 6 and available online at
