Global Electronic Technology is expanding its sponsorship and branding within the NHRA to include Krista Baldwin’s A/Fuel Dragster team, which is ready to hit the track for the first time in 2020 at the Dodge NHRA Indy Nationals presented by Pennzoil with Global Electronic Technology as her partner. Baldwin joins Paul Lee (Funny Car) and Antron Brown (Top Fuel) as a Global Electronic Technology teammate.
Baldwin will hit the track for the first time in 2020 this weekend for the NHRA North Central Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Regional event being held in conjunction with the national event. With many top cars arriving for the eight-car field, she and crew chief, Anthony Dicero tested the A/Fuel Dragster two months ago and the results proved they are ready for great success.
“We came out to the Lucas Oil Raceway to work on our tune up and make a few runs with some new parts on the car,” said Baldwin. “I made three half-track pulls that resulted in some very exciting numbers. Anthony and I are ready to get our 2020 season underway. With only eight spots to get into the field, you have to be perfect on each qualifying run. It’s going to be difficult, but I’m up for the challenge. And much thanks to Steve and Samantha Bryson and Paul Lee for giving me a chance to hold up a Wally this weekend.”
Baldwin and Lee will have matching cars this weekend. Baldwin is the Creative Director for Paul Lee’s companies, McLeod Racing and FTI Performance. Lee is looking forward to having a successful weekend for both teams.
“Krista has worked extra hard this year with both McLeod Racing and FTI Performance as these companies continue to grow, even during these unprecedented times,” said Lee. “Global Electronic Technology and their superior credit card business processing has been a big part of this growth. Naturally, we want to thank them for their great service by expanding race and media exposure by supporting Krista’s team, flying the Global team design and wrap. We’re looking for a fun and successful weekend at Indy 3 with our teams.”
In addition to Global Electronic Technology, Baldwin received support from McLeod Racing, Composite Specialties, Eat Sleep Race, FTI Performance, Lucas Oil, and Clevite.
