A/Fuel Dragster driver Krista Baldwin will begin her season collaborating with Wix Filters, Bumper to Bumper and Hanson Distributing at her home track during the Lucas Oil Winternationals.
“We’re thrilled to be supporting Krista as she takes on the Winternationals this weekend,” said Jennifer Gibson, brand manager for Wix Filters. “NHRA is such an exciting sport, and Wix is proud to be under the hood of her A/Fuel dragster.”
During off-season, team owner Anthony Dicero and Baldwin assembled a new Don Schumacher Racing-chassised A/Fuel Dragster to debut this weekend. CP Carrillo rods and pistons, Clevite/Mahle bearings, Manton push rods, Strange Engineering rear-end, Weld Wheels, Lucas Oil products, TBM Brakes and a Boninfante/McLeod Racing clutch round out the list of top-line parts.
“Helping put together this dragster pushed my confidence over the top,” explained 24-year-old Baldwin. “I’ve watched it transform from a bare chassis on saw horses to a race-ready dragster prepared to make our Q1 debut on Thursday.”
Bumper to Bumper Parts Stores and Certified Service Centers are a part of the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance, one of the largest auto parts distribution networks in the world. Hanson Distributing of Azusa, Calif., is one of the premier distributors of Wix Filters under the Bumper to Bumper alliance. McLeod Racing will also continue their efforts to support Krista Baldwin for the 2018 season.
“Being in the aftermarket myself, I understand the importance of a strong relationship between manufacturers and distributors,” says said Baldwin, creative director of McLeod Racing. “I am so pumped to begin the 2018 season with Wix Filters and Bumper to Bumper. Highlighting their accomplishments together is truly an honor and I can’t wait to represent them at my home track.”
