Lofton has been a big supporter and sponsor of racing over the years including NASCAR and USAR, formerly the Hooters Pro Cup Series. “I have had a strong connection with drag racing since my teenage years”, said Lofton. “I am excited to bring the Strutmasters team to Pro Modified, which is home to the most powerful and exotic door slammers in drag racing today.” General Manager, Will Ansardy, was impressed by King’s racing accomplishments, such as his multiple Top 10 points finishes in every major sanctioning body, including the NHRA and IHRA. He is the 2002 Valvoline ProHeadsUp National Champion, and in 2008 finished in the Top 4 for the prestigious IHRA $100,000 Pro Mod Shootout.
