Street Stock and Super Late Model Series

Because TrickShot performs so well in harsh conditions as a lubricant and penetrant, it’s the perfect product for both in the garage and pit stop uses. TrickShot was a natural fit for sponsoring the Andrew Gordon Racing Team.

TrickShot is proud to be the primary sponsor for Andrew Gordon, now racing the #25 cars, in the Penn Ohio and Super Late model series for the 2019 season. Andrew will be splitting his time behind the wheel between both series. Watch to see Andrew set the bar high this year, in his Trick Shot race car, as he has proven to be the man to beat!

We wish Andrew and his entire team the best and a sucessful 2019!
