Kalitta Motorsports participated in two national conventions in support of Kalitta Air and longtime sponsor Revchem Composites following the Texas NHRA FallNationals. Each display featured a specially designed Toyota Funny Car that Kalitta Motorsports' in-house graphics and branding staff designed and wrapped for each show.
From Oct. 17-20, a Kalitta Air-logoed Funny Car was on display at the annual National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA) United States Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) Fall Meeting, where a wide variety of military, civilian, and industry leaders in transportation gathered to discuss how to project and sustain a combat credible Joint Force in contested environments at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel. Additionally, Kalitta Air was awarded the “Outstanding support to programs of NDTA The Association for Global Logistics & Transportation” during the show.
At the same time, Revchem Composites was showing off their behind-the-scenes efforts with the design of the 2022 Toyota Funny Car body on the West Coast at the 8th annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) show in Anaheim, Calif. The Toyota body, designed and constructed in 2021 for the 2022 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series, was on display throughout the entire show from Oct. 17-20.
“Being able to support Kalitta Air and Revchem Composites at their national conventions was a huge honor for Kalitta Motorsports and a great marketing opportunity for our NHRA racing operation,” said Chad Head, Kalitta Motorsports general manager. “We want to highlight all our teams anywhere we can, and getting in front of each of these groups in St. Louis and Anaheim while we are racing in Dallas and then Las Vegas is huge for our organization and the sport. To have these Toyota Funny Cars on display at NDTA and CAMX is a very cool opportunity to show off our sport and our business relationship in front of industry leaders from around the world.”
The Toyota Funny Car body was the centerpiece of the Revchem Composites display, which an internationally diverse group of manufacturers got to see firsthand. CAMX brought together all aspects of the world’s composites and advanced materials communities for one all-encompassing event. The composites event brought in roughly 500 exhibitors and 6,000 attendees, with 2019 breaking the record at 521 exhibitors and 7,600 attendees. Anaheim has historically had the best turnout, so the 2022 event was expected to have record attendance and interest.
