PRLog - June 21, 2014 - ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The Tread City Tire / Western New York Super Rod Association (WNYSRA) today proudly announced that Jiffy-tite Motorsports of Lancaster, New York has joined the upstart racing series as a sponsor. As part of their sponsorship, Jiffy-tite has created the “Jiffy-tite Package Award” that includes a $50 gift certificate towards the purchase of Jiffy-tite’s quick connect fluid fittings. The award will be presented at every WNYSRA event to the driver with the best winning “package” during eliminations, which represents the total amount of time away from a perfect run, calculated using the racer’s reaction time at the starting line and elapsed time (ET) for their run down the quarter-mile.
Duane LaFleur peers over at a competitor while in his Jiffy-tite sponsored ride.

Oldfield continued, “I’m a customer of Jiffy-tite myself, using their fittings on both my fuel lines and transmission cooler lines, and couldn’t be happier with their performance. This new award will give other racers the opportunity to experience the outstanding performance of Jiffy-tite’s fittings first-hand.”
The first driver to win the “Jiffy-tite Package Award” was Jon Pellicane of Attica, NY, who at the WNYSRA opener presented by Damorie Construction put together a “twenty-thousandths package” (0.020 seconds) with his near perfect 0.005 reaction time and 9.915 second ET en route to defeating Mark Herbold of Elma, NY in the first round of eliminations.
