What could be a bigger thrill than having one of Corvette’s winningest drivers handing the keys to a brand new Corvette to the HandMeTheKeys sweepstakes winner?” says Dave Roberts, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Carlisle Companies Incorporated, parent company of Hawk Performance.

The Board of Directors of the Quarter Mile Foundation has named veteran, award winning motorsports television producer John B. Mullin to create an initial pilot for the PROJECT 1320 documentary.
Foundation Chairman Traci Hrudka commented, “After reviewing John’s proposal, the Board felt that he and his Mullin Production Group had the understanding of drag racing and the performance aftermarket and the passion they carry for the racers, the enthusiasts and the industry that this historical documentary requires.
“John asked penetrating questions about the Foundation’s mission, and what the Foundation wanted from the documentary. The Board felt John’s experience producing network television productions of drag racing and other motorsports during the period from the mid 70’s to the mid 1990s gave him an inside perspective into the racers and other personalities, as well as the performance aftermarket necessary to tell the audience how the sport and industry grew.”
