“I have attended the SEMA Show many times, but this time is really special. The director of marketing of my primary sponsor, Martech Quality Air Breathing Systems is Tom Wright, a long-time friend who took a chance on sponsoring me as a first time owner/driver of a land speed racing team. Without his support, we could never have achieved the great success we enjoyed this year. I’m excited to sing the praises of Martech Services Company at SEMA and consider myself lucky to have a sponsor whose products are as great as his friendship,” said Thompson.
Thompson added, “I will also be working with my long-time sponsor, CTEK Battery Chargers, at the SEMA Show. Ken Palmman been wonderful to work with, they truly do make the smartest battery chargers in the world. We have a lot of giveaways for SEMA, including hero cards, Martech Service Company racing shirts, Stay Fast clothing gear and CTEK Comfort Indicators, so be sure to stop by and see us.”
