(KENT, Wash) – All-natural hand cleaner EF-65 will return to its title sponsorship of Pacific Raceways’ Jr. Drag Racing Series for 2018, it was announced today.  The Seattle-based company had been the series sponsor from 2013 – 2016.

The 12-race series for kids 5-17 will begin in April and run through August.  Racers will vie for series championships in Storm, Thunder and Lightning, as well as spots on the Pacific Raceways’ team for the NHRA Summit Racing Equipment ET Finals in September.

“The Longley family has a rich tradition in supporting youth sports from boat racing to auto racing to high school football,” said John Ramsey, Pacific Raceways general manager.  “Having the world’s best hand cleaner back with us in 2018 to help support and promote Jr. Drag racing will be important to extend our reach in the community.”

We want to build on the excitement around Jr. Dragsters and create opportunities to add more racers and parents, said EF-65’s Gary Longley.  “This is such a fun program with passionate racers.  I can’t wait for the 2018 season,” said Longley.
