NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle team White Alligator Racing has a new owner and a new sponsor ahead of the 2024 NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series.

Veteran tuner Tim Kulungian has taken over ownership of the successful team, headlined again this season by 2023 NHRA Rookie of the Year rider Chase Van Sant, and Alabama-based Reddy Parts is its first primary partner. Reddy Parts continues a focus that WAR has established, representing industrial partners that are tailor-made for NHRA.

“Reddy Parts is a resourceful company whose product line is perfect for the NHRA Drag Racing community,” said Kulungian. “They provide rubber tracks, teeth, and undercarriage wear parts for construction and mining vehicles, so they’re the perfect match for the hard-working, enterprising NHRA audience. We couldn’t be more excited to represent Reddy Parts or more proud that they chose us to do the job.”

While Reddy Parts will be the primary sponsor of the team, WAR’s bikes, which also includes the entry of Chris Bostick, will continue to feature their own individual sponsors, including the Trick-Tools Suzuki ridden by Van Sant.

“NHRA racers, crew, and fans are a perfect sampling of our core customers,” said Chase’s father Bruce Van Sant, the founder and owner of Trick-Tools. One small example of the benefits of NHRA exposure occurred when recently retired Funny Car driver Tim Wilkerson came to the Trick-Tools booth at PRI this year looking for tools for his team.
