“I consider it an honor that a company of R+L Carriers’ stature is joining our race team in our quest for a third straight world title. It’s going to be a very exciting year on the drag strip and having R+L Carriers on board just adds to our desire to three-peat. I look forward to introducing them and all of their customers to our sport over the coming months.”
