LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – TJ Zizzo and the PEAK Motor Oil/Herculiner NHRA Full Throttle Series Top Fuel team are proud to welcome Chicago-area business INDAK Manufacturing Corporation to their family-owned operation. INDAK is an associate sponsor for the team and will be represented on the front wing of the dragster at every race.

“Being a sponsor is new for us,” said INDAK Chairman Martin Cobb. “Our company has primarily been in the OEM automotive electrical and electronic business for years, selling to customers such as GM and Ford. We haven’t advertised much in that time. We’re growing and diversifying into consumer electronic LED lighting now, and looking at different ways to benefit from our partnership with Zizzo Racing.

“For right now, it’s just good to be sponsoring the team that is going to win the NHRA Full Throttle Series race at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet!”

The INDAK Group pioneered automotive LED lighting a decade ago with stop, tail, and turn signal lighting. Today Indak is developing a line of highly efficient LED lighting products for home, office and factory use. Additional information is available at www.indaklighting.com.

Zizzo, preparing for the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Route 66 Nationals at his home track, said he has thrilled to have another partner from his area step up to work with the team. “Having PEAK and Old World Industries onboard and them being headquartered in the Chicago area is great and now, having INDAK with us, man! It really puts the pressure on us to put this Top Fuel dragster in the Winner’s Circle in Joliet next week!”

The next scheduled race for Zizzo and the PEAK Motor Oil/Herculiner team is the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Route 66 Nationals at his home track of Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill. For more information or for tickets, visit them on the Web at Route66Raceway.com
