GALOT Motorsports has confirmed a partnership for 2013 with Todd “King Tut” Tutterow of WYO Motorsports to lead a newly formed drag racing team.
Tutterow, a legendary tuner and driver in the drag racing world, will be heading up the three‐driver, four‐car team. Currently a new flagship GALOT Motorsports car is in the works and is yet to be announced.
However, the GALOT team will also be campaigning a Precision Turbo & Engine turbocharged Pro Turbo/Pro Extreme 1967 Shelby GT 500 Mustang driven by Tutterow, a Top Sportsman 1968 Pontiac Firebird driven by team member John Strickland, and a 2005 Pontiac Firebird driven by team member Kevin Rivenbark, to be raced in local shootouts.
Having assembled a support staff of some of the biggest names in drag racing, partners for the GALOT new venture include Harry Hruska of Precision Turbo & Engine (PTE), who will be providing turbocharger and tuning expertise, Tom Jenkins from Advanced Fuel Ignition Systems (AFIS), John Meaney of BigStuff3 (BS3) for assistance and guidance with the well‐known powertrain management system, and Ainsley Jacobs on behalf of P*TEN Marketing (PTEN) who will handle the marketing, PR and social media functions of the team.
The GALOT team plans to attend races in both the ADRL and X‐DRL series, as well as some NHRA Pro Mod races if scheduling allows.
