Troy’s best performance at the Mac Tools Gatornationals happened in 2000. He posted a runner-up finish against Warren Johnson.

“The Mac Tools Gatornationals is and has been one of the biggest races on our schedule for a number of years,” said Troy. “Fans should get ready to see plenty of action from the entire Pro Stock class.”

Mac Tools is one of the associate sponsors of Team JEG’S. Both companies have a rich racing heritage and complement each other very well. Ironically, both companies are based in Central Ohio.

“Mac Tools is a great partner to be associated with,” commented Troy. “The support the Mac Tools distributors give us is great. It really creates an added energy level to a race that is filled with excitement.”
