CHARLOTTE, NC. (April 13, 2017) – Kalitta Motorsports and Troy Coughlin Jr., driver of the SealMaster Top Fuel dragster, are pleased to welcome NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) and ThorSport Racing drivers Grant Enfinger and Ben Rhodes to the NHRA 4-Wide Nationals.

SealMaster has been a valued partner with Kalitta Motorsports for many seasons and has served as a full-season primary sponsor for the past two years. This year, they support Auto Club Road to the Future contender Coughlin Jr. in his rookie nitro season.
“It is awesome to see great drivers from other forms of motorsports come and check out drag racing,” said Coughlin Jr., who is currently eighth in the point standings. “SealMaster is such an important part of my team, and the sport as a whole with their backing of the Track Walk. It is means a lot that these guys take out time in their schedule to come to zMax!”
