After a successful drag racing weekend earlier this season in the 2006 POWERade Drag Racing Series
in Denver flying the primary colors of Las Vegas-based Technicoat Companies, Scott Kalitta and his
Toyota Solara Funny Car team will again assume major sponsorship from Technicoat for this
weekend's, Oct. 26-29, ACDelco Las Vegas NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
"'The Cowboys', Bob and Glen at Technicoat are great," Kalitta said. "They come to a lot of events
and there's always a good time waiting to happen around them. We hope we can go out there and put
up some good numbers so they and their customers will have something extra to cheer for."
Kalitta, a 43-year old resident of Palmetto, Fla., and 25-year drag racing veteran, made the switch
from Top Fuel to Funny Car this season. Scott has one NHRA national event win in his career in
nitro Funny Car and that was at the Houston event in 1989 while driving with a broken left foot. In
Top Fuel, Scott scored two world championships (1994-1995) and 17 NHRA national event wins.
Technicoat Companies, based in Las Vegas and Westminster, Calif., specializes in hi-tech
performance coatings and floorings, wearing surfaces for pedestrian traffic and vehicular traffic,
as well as new and existing roofs. Technicoat's President Bob Coffman and C.O.O. Glen Williams,
a.k.a. 'the Cowboys', are fixtures in the Team Kalitta pit area at most NHRA national events with
their trademark cowboy hats. Technicoat Companies joined Kalitta Motorsports in 2003.
