PRESS RELEASE UPDATE: Due to a malfunction that occurred during practice laps in Atlanta, Wing It Motorsports will no longer be competing in the May 11-12 Round 1 stop of the Formula D Pro 2 Championship. Andrew Lewis, Wing It’s driver, has issued a statement wishing luck to all other competitors this weekend, and is eager to be back for Round 2 in St. Louis.
Lake Forest, IL, May 11, 2018 – Autolite®, an industry leader in spark plug technology, is pleased to announce the renewal of their partnership with Wing It Motorsports. The partnership has been created to supply Wing It Motorsports with premium Autolite spark plugs and FRAM filters as they pursue the 2018 Formula Drift Pro 2 Championship.
“All the parts on my car are ones that are tried and true, that I know work well, and that definitely includes the engine parts,” said Andrew Lewis, Wing It Motorsports’ Owner and Driver. “I love FRAM filters, especially the ones with Suregrip technology. And with Iridium XP plugs, the car fires really well; I never lose any spark. They’ve never fouled out, either, and that’s great for me. I’m not swapping out plugs as often, which gives me more time on the track, and less time doing maintenance.”
Using Autolite spark plugs and FRAM filters have helped put Wing It Motorsports in top contention at all levels of the sport, and Wing it Motorsports hopes to continue this momentum to the 2018 premier event in Atlanta, GA, on May 11-12.
“I feel really good about this year, the first race in Atlanta,” said Andrew Lewis, Wing It Motorsports’ Owner and Driver. “I have a good feeling for each stage; St. Louis is my home track – I can drive that in my sleep. And I tied for first in 2016 qualifications at Texas, so going into the final event [in Irwindale], I hope to be sitting well in the standings.”
Running Autolite Iridium XP spark plugs, as well as FRAM filters give Andrew and the Wing It team peace of mind knowing that their engine is always running at peak performance, and allowing them to focus on what’s most important – having fun on the track.
“This season should be a good one, and I appreciate FRAM Group’s dedication to our team,” added Lewis. “Hopefully with these products in place, we can have another podium finish and a great 2018!”
