RICHMOND, IN – Osborn, the world’s largest and most complete solution provider of high-quality surface treatment and finishing products, has gained a loyal following among fabrication and machine shops on the racing circuit. Many of Osborn’s fans will be gathered in Indianapolis Dec. 12-14 for the PRI (Performance Racing Industry) Trade Show to see the latest advances in racing technology and products.

Meeting the high-performance demands of drag racing is the proving ground for our products, which is why we were interested in being able to extend our participation in the sport through our new partnership with Kalitta Motorsports, as well as our continued partnership with Pro Stock motorcycle drag racer Andie Rawlings and Team F@st.”
Osborn’s newly inked sponsorship agreement with Kalitta underscores the company’s commitment to superior performance, both on and off the track. “Everyone at Kalitta prides themselves on delivering excellence on the race track and in the pits,” says Chad Head, General Manager, Kalitta Motorsports. “For years, we have devoted time and energy to working with the best partners; Osborn and its high-performance products are a welcome addition to the Kalitta Motorsports team.”
