Zizzo ready to get his kicks on Route 66

Chicago, pre-race:  When the Torco Racing Fuels Route 66 NHRA Nationals comes to town (June 5-8), Zizzo Racing will make a 300-mph stroll down a piece of Americana known as Route 66, bringing new primary sponsor, 426 Brand clothing and long-time associate sponsor, HTP America (welders and plasma cutters) for the race.

"Route 66 brings back some memories," driver T.J. Zizzo chuckles. "When we raced here in 2005, we blew up everything we owned trying to qualify. It was the greatest learning experience. We won't blow everything up this time. Hopefully we've learned a little since then."

The Lincolnshire, Ill. based team considers Route 66 Raceway its home track and it provides unique opportunities for sponsors like HTP America and 426 Brand.
