Flatout Gaskets has signed on to sponsor Tom Carter’s Jawbreaker IHRA Alcohol Funny Car Team.

Carter has been drawing a lot of attention this year on the IHRA circuit garnering three wins so far and sitting solidly in second place, just 46 points out of the lead. With only five events left, Carter has become a serious threat to win the IHRA Championship. With the talented efforts of Jeff Fowler and Dale Cannister making tuning calls for the team, championship level performance is almost second nature.

“Flatout has been involved with Fowler Racing Engines and Cannister Motorsports for several years and their input on product development has been key to many innovations in our line-up” said Mark Adelizzi, President of Flatout Group. “Rejoining this group of dedicated racers has been in our plan for awhile and we hope to support and see Laurie Cannister back out there and racing a second car for this team in 2007! This is just the beginning!” added Adelizzi.

Team Manager, Laurie Cannister added: “During the years that we campaigned my Funny Car, Flatout was a great supporter of our efforts. It’s good to have them back on-board and we look forward to a bright future, carrying the Flatout Gaskets banner as Flatout steps into a major growth mode”. “We have a lot of new, exciting things happening for the fall, including a major announcement coming nextweek! “Stay tuned because if you think we were Flatout before, 2007 should prove to be another breakthrough year for us!”Adelizzi added. 

Flatout Group has also recently released the 2006 Flatout Gaskets catalog that covers popular performance aftermarket engine applications. Rubber Coated Copper (RCC) and SaberSeal MLS head gaskets, intake, header gaskets along with specialized, low volume and custom applications are also available to enthusiasts, racers and engine builders.
