ELKHART, Ind. -- Flatout Group President, Mark Adelizzi and Hoosier Thunder Motorsports team owner and driver, Terry McMillen announced today that the Flatout Group would continue and expand its four year partnership. The Flatout Group is an associate sponsor on the Amalie Oil InstiGator Funny Car, powered by TORCO Race Fuels and will add sponsorship to the McMillen piloted, Knoll Gas Motorsports, Top Fuel team.

"Flatout is one of the most innovative companies in the motorsports industry," commented McMillen. "Mark and the folks at Flatout are always improving on an already great product. They consistently analyze and monitor the gaskets each time we remove them for future improvements. I wouldn't put anything else on my car."

The Illinois based Flatout Group provides gaskets and fabrication services to the racing and industrial industry. Flatout's full line of high performance gaskets include; Copper Cylinder Head Gaskets, their one-and-only Rubber Coated Copper (RCC) gaskets and the SaberSeal MLS (Multi-Layered Steel Head Gaskets) making Flatout the number one choice of professional and sportsman drag racers in both the NHRA and IHRA drag racing series. Flatout offers a full line of exhaust, intake, valve cover and oil pan gaskets as well.

"Being one of Flatout Gaskets biggest supporters, Terry gets a first look at all new and emerging performance gasket technologies," said Flatout President, Mark Adelizzi. "Basically, after we prove our concepts on the dyno, Terry is one of the first teams to give us back real field testing data. His feedback is immeasurable! We're so pleased to be involved with the whole Hoosier Thunder team, we can't wait to see them get their Top Fuel car on track in 2006." We expect big things from Hoosier Thunder next season and we are glad to be involved with them for our forth year!"

Flatout's commitment to drag racing has never been more evident. Besides posting contingency sponsorship with the IHRA, Adelizzi and his associates are always looking for innovative ways to expand their market. Case in point: Adopt A Junior Dragster Program.

At the beginning of the 2005 season, McMillen met the Gerthe family, an IHRA Division 4 brother and sister team. McMillen then approached Adelizzi about a program to sponsor junior dragsters. "Without hesitation Mark stepped up and joined us to start the Adopt a Junior Dragster Program last year," McMillen explained. "I know it meant a lot to Alesi and Ayrton and the Gerthe family to have quality Flatout Gaskets on their Junior Dragster Car. It also meant a lot to me to know that I'm associated with a company that has that kind of heart and vision." Adelizzi added, "We're very proud of our association with the Gerthe family. "The future of our sport is very bright with young stars like the Gerthe's."
