Kalitta Motorsports and former NHRA Rookie of the Year Richie Crampton are

participating in the SealMaster Track Walk prior to the beginning of the NHRA race action.
"It's always a great time to get ThorSport and Kalitta Motorsports drivers together at one
another's events," said SealMaster Communications Director Debbie Petok Hufford. "We're honored
they're joining us in Charlotte to lead the SealMaster Track Walk with Richie and to enjoy a great

SealMaster, the most trusted name in pavement maintenance for more than 40 years, is a sister
company with ThorSport Racing. SealMaster has been a valued partner with Kalitta Motorsports since
2014. This season, SealMaster is campaigning as an associate partner on both of Crampton's Kalitta
Air Top Fuel dragster and the Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster of Doug Kalitta. Both Crampton and
Kalitta have delivered wins for SealMaster in NHRA's first four events as Crampton won the historic
Gatornationals in Gainesville, Fla., while Kalitta started the season with a win at the
Winternationals in Pomona, Calif.
"I am excited to welcome Matt and Myatt to the track," said Crampton. "SealMaster has been a big
supporter of NHRA and Kalitta Motorsports for many seasons, and their support of motorsports as a
whole is evident. It is going to be a great SealMaster Track Walk with the NHRA fans, before a
great day of racing."
ThorSport Racing is the longest-tenured NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team with over 1000
starts. Crafton is a two-time NCWTS champion with 14 career wins, and he's currently seventh in the
point standings. Snider is in his rookie season in NCWTS, vying for Sunoco Rookie of the Year
Honors, and has two top-10 finishes in the first four races of 2018. The solid start to the season
has Snider sitting eighth in the points standings.
Crampton, Crafton and Snider will be joined on the SealMaster Track Walk by a new SealMaster
branded truck driven by local Charlotte SealMaster franchisee, Bob Krebs.
"As the official pavement products and equipment supplier of the NHRA, it's my honor to be a part
of this Elimination Day tradition. We pray for the continued safety of all of the drivers and crews
throughout the weekend and season." said Krebs.
The SealMaster Track Walk will take place at approximately 10:30 am prior to driver introductions
for the NHRA 4-Wide Nationals at zMax Dragway.
