All of WELD’s dually and truck wheels will feature WELD’s all new Advanced Tactical Coating (ATC). ATC is a proprietary nano-ceramic barrier to protect against mud, abrasions, salt, and corrosion. ATC locks in WELD’s signature mirror shine with no dulling or discoloration. The ultra thin ATC barrier will keep your Weld wheels looking factory fresh.

His legendary match racing between himself and Don “the Snake “ Prudhomme were so wildly popular that just this past year the Snake and The Mongoose movie was released. The movie depicts one of the greatest rivalries in NHRA history.
Paul Lee starting driving when he was just 16 when he would “borrow” his mom’s Plymouth Duster to race at Atco Dragway. That passion for racing helped propel Lee up the NHRA ranks all the way to Top Fuel Funny Car. Not only is Paul an event winning NHRA Top Fuel Funny Car driver but he is also the owner of McLeod Racing.

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.”
