The Doug Riesterer Pro Nitrous team welcomes a new sponsorship on board for the remainder of the 2012 season. The New Capitol Raceway will take the place of primary sponsorship on Riesterer’s ’68 Camaro. In April, Capitol Raceway came under the management of Raceway Promotions, a company headed by John Crane. His JA Crane Company and PGT Trucking will also be featured in an associate role on Riesterer’s Pro Nitrous entry.


“We’re excited to have JA Crane on board, and especially Capitol Raceway,” told Riesterer. “Hopefully we’ll continue running well to represent this new partnership. We want to get the word out about Capitol Raceway. I keep hearing great things about all the work that John and his crew have put into the facility. We want to get to Maryland and visit the track before the end of the year. Here in Texas it’s always hot and dry so we welcome the change for cooler race weather.”


Riesterer’s first event featuring the new sponsorship will be the ADRL Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags VI, September 28-29.


Crane is also looking forward to the partnership, which may develop into a larger operation if things go as planned:


“Doug is a great guy. I am excited to help someone who normally has to stick to a tight budget for Pro Nitrous. He is very successful at what he does, which will be important for us next year if we make this a two car team. I’m currently getting seat time for my son, Chase, and if all goes to plan, we’ll be in a two car team next season. Chase will be behind the wheel of a development car and under the tutelage of Pro Mod standout Larry Plumber.”


“John is a really good guy and loves racing like I do,” added Riesterer. “I’m pretty pumped about working with him the rest of the year, next year and for years to come.”
