"This is an exciting opportunity for everyone involved," said Jim Stewart, Product Marketing Manager for GearWrench.

"At races across the United States, NHRA fans watching on TV or from the stands will be able to see GearWrench tools in action. Technicians will be under extreme pressure to get their cars ready for the next round. We are confident that our tools will perform well and the Rob Tucker Racing team is well prepared for this year's race season," said Stewart.
