Todd Lesenko and Worsham Racing return to NHRA action in Chicago, bringing Canadian National Railway Co. (CN) as their new primary sponsor for the 2013 O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals presented by Super Start Batteries.

“I’m extremely proud to have a great North American railway company supporting our team,” said Lesenko. “CN and our team share the same core values: a commitment to safety and striving for excellence.”

CN transports approximately 250 billion Canadian dollars' worth of goods annually for a wide range of business sectors, ranging from resource products to manufactured products to consumer goods, across a rail network spanning Canada and mid-America, from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to the Gulf of Mexico.

“We’ve been working really hard with everyone at Forward Sports Marketing to bring in a sponsor for our team,” said Lesenko. “CN is the perfect partner for us.”

Lesenko is driving the Worsham Racing Funny Car at a select number of events in 2013. He has competed at three NHRA races this season and advanced to the quarterfinals at the NHRA Arizona Nationals in Phoenix.
