SUPER COMP RACER MEGAN STRASSWEG INKS MULTIYEAR DEAL WITH COOLSHIRT
NHRA Super Comp racer Megan Strassweg has inked a multiyear partnership with COOLSHIRT Liquid Cooled Garments for the 2017 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series and beyond.
Strassweg confirmed the partnership with COOLSHIRT Liquid Garments is a natural continuation of a relationship which has grown into positive returns.
“COOLSHIRT allows the driver to strap in the car and begin the focusing processes,” Strassweg said. “I am not worried about how hot it may be outside because, with my DragPak system and COOLSHIRT vest, I am staying cool baby. Utilizing the DragPak System to keep my body temperature and heart rate cool and calm, allows me to better focus on my reaction times."
The COOLSHIRT product line is lightweight and easy to use. The bag system can stay attached to the driver until pulling into the burnout box. The easy portable bag allows for continued comfort during the lengthy oil downs with hooking back up while strapped in, allowing the driver to maintain focus while staying cool. Utilization to lower core body temperature after a run in the hot elements is a superb use for the DragPak.
“COOLSHIRT has long been a staple in Sportscar Racing, and we are proud to be expanding our brand into Drag Racing with Megan and the entire DragstersForSale.com/TEAMDFS group,” said Jay Buckalew, CEO of COOLSHIRT SYSTEMS. “With our commitment to developing products specifically designed for Drag Racing this seemed a natural fit for us. Having the opportunity to showcase our products in real time and real conditions, the data and feedback will be extremely valuable.”
Strassweg makes her competition debut later this month at the Lucas Oil Raceway Park-hosted NHRA Division 3 Opener in the extremely competitive class of Super Comp.
