Top Fuel driver Leah Pritchett and Dote Racing unveiled the new Gumout “Solid Gold” dragster on Friday afternoon in advance of this weekend’s NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway.

Pritchett, from Avon, Ind., will pilot the gold Gumout machine in the next three NHRA national events at Bristol, Norwalk, Ohio (NHRA Summit Racing Equipment Nationals July 2-5) and Joliet, Ill. (NHRA Route 66 Nationals July 9-12).

The Gumout Expert Series, with gold packing, is an exclusive line of Gumout premium performance additives and kits available only at AutoZone.

“We, at Gumout, are very excited to debut the new “Solid Gold” dragster Friday for Leah and the Dote Racing team at Bristol,” said Rusty Waples, Global Group Brand Manager at ITW Global Brands. “When we discussed our idea with Leah, she asked if we could really go gold and we told her, ‘absolutely.’  That said, it’s about as gold as you can get and it mimics our new packaging for the Gumout Expert Series. We’re enthusiastic to see the reaction of the NHRA racing fans as they get the chance to see the car close-up in the pits.”

The Expert Series includes products formulated with the most advanced cleaning and conditioning agents on the market. From single use products to specialty kits, the Gumout Expert Series lineup offers solutions to drivers looking to maintain newer vehicle performance as well as those with older vehicles who wish to restore lost engine performance.

For nearly 70 years, Gumout has been vehicle owners’ trusted source for automotive performance products and made a successful return to NHRA professional drag racing in 2014.

“We went back and forth on how to do this gold dragster and finally just decided lets be all-in and go big – and gold, bullion-style,” laughed Pritchett, recent runner-up at the NHRA Southern Nationals. “I love the red dragster, but this, this is going to be fun to roll out to the lanes the next three events for Gumout. Even more fun to roll out of Bristol with a Wally.”
