Steve Matusek, the founder of Aeromotive, teams up with one of the biggest names in turbochargers. Matusek wants nothing more than to win a championship heading into the 2019 NHRA Pro Mod season.
“We want to work with companies that want to work with us and learn with us, and we have a great opportunity to work with a real high-tech company like Garrett Advancing Motion that will give us good feedback to advance our program quickly,” Matusek said. “It’s a very good, very safe product that will help us reach our goals and I’m very excited to work with Garrett in 2019.”
“For us, it’s extremely thrilling to partner with such a professional team and a guy like Steve with so much history in the sport,” Garrett Advancing Motion Marketing Specialist Tim Coltey said. “This is the best of the best in the class and we’re really putting the product to the test. It’s a great opportunity to see what our products will do. It’s really a big deal for Garrett to get involved at this level and it’s definitely the right opportunity and team to be involved with. When you look at Steve and just the whole program with Elite Motorsports and Shane and Justin, it really was a no-brainer for us.”
Tecklenburg, well-respected tuner, enjoyed prior success with Garrett turbos, which only furthered his enthusiasm for the partnership between Matusek and Garrett Advancing Motion.
“I’m super excited to be working directly with Garrett on a project once again,” Tecklenburg said. “I can’t wait to go feed one of these Elite Performance, Alan Johnson Hemis with the new offerings from Garrett and start Advancing Motion.” “They’re concerned about more than just maximum performance,” Matusek said. “They’re not willing to give up safety for performance. Garrett has a product that can compete at a high level, but they also care about you and care about your safety. That’s really important and I have so much confidence with the team and I believe, in a short time, the car will be near or at the top. I don’t see how it can’t be successful and that’s what I’m expecting.”
We wish Matusek nothing but the best with his new partnership.
