In an effort to gain additional market exposure and increase its presence throughout the racing community, Extreme Energy Solutions took the opportunity to promote long time Veteran Dirt Track Race Car Driver Tommy Vigh Jr. to compete in ARCA. Vigh is the Company’s Brand Ambassador in representing the Extreme Kleaner and H2O Energy Flow product lines, and has done so for a number of years.
Tommy Vigh Jr. of Otisville, NY; and will be piloting equipment provided by Fast Track Racing, under the leadership of Andy Hillenburg, to make a run in this year’s Herr’s Potato Chips 200 at the Madison International Speedway on June 15, 2018, in the #11 car.
Back home in the Northeast, Tommy Vigh Jr. is the driver of the #92 Extreme Kleaner-Extreme Energy Solutions open wheel dirt Sportsman machine, seen in competition at the Orange County Fair Speedway, mainly on Saturday Nights from April to October. He also drives the #H2O Energy Flow-Extreme Energy Solutions car, slated to be driven in the Small Block division at the same track. Vigh is also scheduled to run a number of races at Accord Speedway (NY); Bethel Speedway (NY) and selected Brett Dayo’s Short Track Super Series Tour events.
This will be Vigh’s first time behind a full fender race car since leaving the Pro-Stock division in 2012. Vigh has had an impressive short track record which includes: 12 career wins behind the wheel of Street Stocks, Pro Stocks, and now Sportsman Modified combined; being voted Orange County Fair Speedway Favorite Pro Stocker (2009); OCFS First Ever Elimination Race Winner, OCFS Rookie of the Year, OCFS Driver of the Year (2009), Accord Speedway King of the Catskills Champion (2010), 2nd in Points (2011), OCFS Rookie Sportsmanship of the Year (2012), and NYSSCA Rookie Sportsmanship of the Year (2012), in addition to a number of regular race season wins.
As an open wheel driver, Vigh has collected a number of top five and top ten finishes in the last three years; including a respectable 8th place finish at the famed Eastern States Weekend 2017 Sportsman contest. Vigh currently sits 6th in points at his home track in the Sportsman division. In all three contests Vigh has ran at his home track for 2018, he has had top ten finishes, with a top 5 finish on June 2.
“I am so grateful and thankful for the opportunity Extreme Energy Solutions and Samuel K. Burlum have been able to provide me over the last few years. Being able to drive at the ARCA level is a highlight for my career. I am also looking forward to driving for Fast Track and Andy Hillenburg. I appreciate that Andy allowed for me to get behind the wheel of his car. I look to make both Extreme and Fast track proud and hope for a good debut run,” Vigh shared.
“I think Tommy will do a great job. I have watched video of his past races and they show to me he is a quality competitor,” said Hillenburg, who will let Vigh drive his #11 machine.
“Vigh has done a great job in helping our brand, Extreme Kleaner and the H2O Energy Flow brand grow on a local and regional level, and has lent his likeness to promote our brands as more retailers would adopt the product offering in their respective store locations. I know he is a great driver, well liked, and he deserves the opportunity to carry our brand to the national stage,” commented Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc.,
Vigh will be representing the product brand of Extreme Kleaner by Extreme Energy Solutions on the #11 Fast Track entry. Other supporters of Vigh’s ARCA Madison bid include Hardware Hank, Trustworthy Hardware, United Hardware Distributing Company, Mendia Studios, Manawa Community Living Center; and Project Help (non-profit that assist Veterans and their families)
Extreme Energy Solutions has continued its relationship with Vigh and the sport of racing. In the past, the company has found benefit of motorsports marketing and being involved in the sport on a regional level. Extreme Energy Solutions has marketed its product lines of Extreme Kleaner, H2O Energy Flow, and Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatments via the racing community, which has resulted in the continued partnering of additional retailers that now offer these products to consumers across the nation, in over 500+ selected retailer locations, including many Hardware Hank stores.
In addition, Extreme Energy Solutions has utilized the venue of racing as a research and development spring board in testing and bringing to market its flagship technology, the SMART Emissions Reducer, which was designed to aid vehicle engines in reducing harmful toxic vehicle emissions while providing the additional benefit of increased engine efficiency. The technology was tested in a number of venues through a series of on-road pilot programs and in third party labs including Roush Industries, in Lavonia, Michigan. SMART Emissions Reducer by Extreme Energy Solutions had already been featured as driver-team sponsor in ARCA and NASCAR.
Extreme Energy Solutions’ Samuel K. Burlum and Fast Track’s Andy Hillenburg both aim to achieve a good outing for Vigh, which will set the stage for the senior statesman and rookie to compete with at future events. This year’s event is scheduled to take place on Friday June 15, 2018; at 8pm (CDT), televised on MAV TV.
