Gumout Performance Products to be Showcased at Carlisle and Beyond in 2013

CARLISLE, PA - Carlisle Events has already opened its 2013 schedule and is weeks away from starting its Carlisle-based events with Spring Carlisle (April 24-28).  As the "home schedule" sets to launch, Carlisle is pleased to announce the renewal of a business and sponsorship partnership with Gumout Performance Products, a brand/division of ITW Global Brands.  For the second consecutive year, the partnership will begin with Spring Carlisle and last through the conclusion of the season with Zephyrhills Fall AutoFest, November 14-17.  In between, Gumout will be associated with some of the largest and most important automotive events nationwide. 

The Gumout name will once again attach itself to multiple events at Carlisle and beyond, all of which offer something unique to enthusiasts of all ages and interests.  Spring Carlisle, which welcomes more than 100,000 automotive enthusiasts on average annually, welcomes back the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge.  This is the third year for the HROT at Carlisle and showcases high school students competing for scholarship money as they tear down and rebuild a Chevy small block engine.  The winning team at Carlisle earns a trip to the finals at the PRI (Performance Racing Industry) event in Indianapolis, Indiana in December. 

In addition, Carlisle's remaining events, which in total average nearly 400,000 patrons, see attendees come in droves from all parts of the globe.  While at Carlisle and locations away from the central Pennsylvania, enthusiasts browse the latest trends and historical machines for such events as Performance & Style, the Import & Kit Nationals, Ford Nationals, GM Nationals, Chrysler Nationals, Bike Fest, Truck Nationals, Bloomsburg Nationals, Corvettes at Carlisle, Carlisle Sports and Outdoor Nationals, Fall Carlisle and Zephyrhills Fall AutoFest.  Each event offers unique and often one-of-a-kind displays and features guaranteed to heighten the exposure of Gumout itself.

"Gumout is one of the iconic brands in the automotive aftermarket," noted Jim Vinarski, Director of Business and Event Development.  "They have pioneered the use of chemical technology to improve engine performance and fuel efficiency.  Because of that and their strong brand recognition within the automotive community, we're excited to have them return to Carlisle Events in 2013 as our official performance products partner."

"Carlisle Events and Gumout, what a great combination," said co-owner and co-founder Bill Miller.  "Gumout products are the 'Best of the Best' and it is our job at Carlisle Events to keep our customers aware of ways to keep their vehicles operating to the best of their ability.  We are proud to showcase Gumout products so more and more people realize how easy it is to get the most from your vehicle for such a small price."  Miller continued by encouraging everyone to "stop by the Gumout display and see the variety of products they sell and learn how each product can extend the life of your wheels."
