Michalek Brothers Racing has added a new primary partnership to its A/Fuel Dragster team in Fund That Flip, a leader in providing short-term loans to experienced real estate investors.
Coming off a career-best run at the team’s most recent outing, the team is hard at work preparing for a return to NHRA national event competition in 2020 and 2021.
“We are honored and very excited to have the opportunity to partner with the Fund That Flip team,” said Kyle Michalek, co-owner of MBR. “We see many complementary strengths between our race team, the NHRA fan base, and the Fund That Flip team that can be leveraged to create wins for all parties. We have several ideas for engaging NHRA fans through social media initiatives and at-track programs that will be both impactful and a lot of fun. I can’t wait to get this program started and get back to the track to burn some nitro!”
Fund That Flip specializes in providing fast, reliable capital to experienced real estate investors that are rehabilitating residential properties.
“Core to our value proposition is speed and reliability,” says Matt Rodak, CEO of Fund That Flip. “Drag racing brings these values to life better than any other sport imaginable. When Corey is at the line ready to rocket down the track, he wants to go as fast as humanly possible, and to do so he needs everything to work flawlessly. The same applies for real estate investors ready to start a fix-and-flip or new construction project. They need to go fast, and to do so they need a reliable capital partner. Speed and reliability are what we pride ourselves on.”
“This is a monumental day in MBR history,” added team co-owner Corey Michalek. “We have been building our program for a moment like this, and we’re humbled to have the opportunity to represent a brand like Fund That Flip. Kyle and I are ecstatic to introduce such a promising non-endemic partner to the opportunities the sport of NHRA Drag Racing has to offer. I cannot overstate the sense of positive anticipation for what’s to come.”
Among expected highlights for the team will be MBR’s first time ever competing at the world's most prestigious drag race, the Denso Spark Plug NHRA U.S. Nationals and 2020 season finale at zMAX Dragway, where MBR has been to the final round two of the three races that the team has entered, and four additional stops to be determined upon release of the 2021 schedule.
