LAS VEGAS -- Chip Foose, world-renowned auto designer and TV personality, and Doug Kalitta, NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Top Fuel dragster ace, have one very cool thing in common: Their passion for fast, eye-stopping and jaw-dropping hot rods. This weekend, Oct. 25-27, at "The Strip" at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Foose, Kalitta, and Mac Tools will again team up to give auto racing fans a 10,000-horsepower compilation of style and speed via a special edition Foose-designed, Kalitta-driven dragster.


"I am very excited to have once again designed the graphics for the Mac Tools/Kalitta Motorsports Top Fuel dragster," Foose, who also designed a dragster for Kalitta and Mac Tools most recently in 2007, said. "I have been a big fan of drag racing since I was a kid and being a part of the Mac Tools/Kalitta Motorsports team is very cool. Having my logo displayed on the car with names that I admire is an honor."

"The dragster looks great," Kalitta, a 49-year old resident of Ann Arbor, Mich. said. "Mac Tools and Chip work together very closely on a lot of projects, so we're honored to have him be a part of our racing program. He's an amazing guy and an amazing artist. He definitely would be proud to see our car in the winner's circle, and it's just a little extra motivation for me and the Mac Tools crew to try to do just that in Las Vegas."

"Mac Tools is proud of their 10-year relationship with automotive icon Chip Foose. Knowing Chip is using Mac Tools to build his one-of-a-kind hot rods makes our Distributors and Franchisees proud. We are excited to see this Chip Foose-designed dragster and look forward to it racing its way to winner's circle on Sunday," said Director of Motorsports for STANLEY Black & Decker Tony Merritt.

With only two events remaining in the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, Kalitta, a 16-year NHRA Top Fuel veteran, is vying for his first world championship in the world's quickest and fastest racing class. He enters the event in Las Vegas in second place in Mello Yello Top Fuel championship points, only 83 points behind the leader.

For a limited time, fans can purchase a one of a kind Kalitta Motorsports/Chip Foose crew shirt and a Chip Foose collectable Top Fuel dragster die-cast through your local Mac Tools Distributor.

Mac Tools, Team Kalitta and Chip Foose fans can purchase limited edition Chip Foose products through the Mac Tools Thematic flyer which offers a Chip Foose wrapped tool box, Foose mechanics seat and creeper, just to name a few.
