J.R. Todd, driver of the MAD Creative Concepts Top Fuel Dragster, debuts a new sponsor to NHRA for the second consecutive weekend.
MAD Creative Concepts, based not far from Kalitta Motorsports in Ypsilanti, Mich., handles the wraps, hero cards and many other marketing materials for Team Kalitta, but this is their first primary sponsorship in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Todd flew the SealMaster colors in Norwalk, and was fast early. In the first session, Todd earned two bonus points as the second fastest run, a number that was only bested by his teammate, Doug Kalitta. Todd also has good memories of this event last season. "The MAD guys are great people and I am excited to represent them," said Todd. J.R. Todd, driver of the SealMaster Top Fuel dragster, moved to Norwalk on a high. He was coming off his second semi-final finish of the season and was debuting a fast new look in Norwalk with the hometown SealMaster colors moving from the associate to the primary level. Todd started the weekend right. That did not stick but Todd did lower his number in the third session to a 3.790 to qualify ninth and draw Texan Steve Torrence in the first round. A great reaction time was not enough as Todd led, but drew some smoke at the top end to allow Torrence to sneak around. "I really wanted to get a win today for all the great people from SealMaster," said Todd. "Some day this luck is bound to change and hopefully it is next weekend in Chicago." Todd retains his ninth position in the point standings. 9. J.R. Todd (597)

Todd will take over the Kalitta Motorsports dragster previously driven by David Grubnic for the rest of 2014. (NHRA Photo) Team owner, crew chief and drag racing icon Connie Kalitta made the decision to change direction with his dragster by tapping Todd to drive his Top Fueler during the previous event, the 15th annual SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Todd, a 32 year-old resident of Lawrenceburg, Ind., has accumulated six wins in eight final round appearances in NHRA Top Fuel competition. He began his straight-line racing career in the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League, where he competed from 1993 until 1998. After serving as a crew member on a Nitro Funny Car team from 2003 until 2005, Todd got his chance to drive at NHRA's highest level, Top Fuel, in 2006. He earned his first career Top Fuel trophy in 2006 in Denver to become the first African-American to win an NHRA Top Fuel race. His most recent victory in NHRA Top Fuel was in Dallas in 2008. "To say I'm excited to be a part of Kalitta Motorsports is a huge understatement," said Todd, who most recently drove a Top Fueler for Bob Vandergriff Racing in Gainesville, Fla. last month. We are very confident that J.R. will represent our team, Optima Batteries, and all of our sponsors to the utmost of his ability.
