Alex Laughlin announced Tuesday that he will be competing in the Caruso Family Racing Pro Mod Camaro at the Inaugural World Door Slammer Nationals March 6-8 at Orlando Speedworld Dragway with ATI Performance Products as a Primary Sponsor.
“When this race was announced, I just knew I had to find a way to double enter in Pro Stock and Pro Mod”, said the reigning U.S. Nationals Champion. “After racing both classes competitively last year, we couldn’t let this opportunity pass without attempting a double-up. The Caruso’s planned on being in Gainesville for the Gators but had no plans of running the Orlando race as of yet, so we quickly came to an agreement where I would run the car.”
“I’ve been working with JC Beattie Jr, Harvey Baker and everyone at ATI Performance Products for a little while on a few other things, but timing would have it that this was the opportunity that worked best for all of us, and they stepped up big time as our Primary sponsor for this event as well as an associate sponsor on our Pro Stock car for the remainder of the year,” said Laughlin.
“ATI Performance Products is thrilled to announce its 2020 partnership with Alex Laughlin Motorsports”, said Harvey Baker of ATI. “Alex is best known for running Pro Stock, Pro Mod, Radial vs the World and No Prep all over the country and sometimes 2 classes at once. ATI will partner on Alex’s cars for testing many of our high-quality products and he will be a great addition to our family. His ability to work on his own cars, race them, and win makes a great combination for ATI’s quest to produce the highest quality parts we can.”
This will be the first time Laughlin and Caruso Family Racing have joined forces after years of being peers and competitors.
“My father and I couldn’t be more excited to have Alex in the seat of our Caruso Family Racing 69 Camaro for Orlando”, said team owner Marc Caruso. “Alex has proven time and time again that he’s a force to be reckoned with no matter what he’s wheeling and we have certainly proven with having the car and team to turn on win lights. We also in the finishing stages of solidifying sponsorship for the Gators to hopefully continue this partnership as it has so much potential.
The World Doorslammer Nationals is held at Orlando Speedworld Dragway on March 6-9 featuring Pro Stock and Pro Mod racing with over $300,000.00 in total purse money. For more information on Laughlin Motorsports or the Door Slammer Nationals contact [email protected].
