Extreme Energy Solutions Announces it’s 2017 Motorsports Marketing Campaign-Line Up, Consisting of Veterans, Hall of Famers, & Rising Stars

For Immediate Release:  January 17, 2017, Middletown, New York team-8

 

Source: Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc. teams up with the popular Veteran Driver Tommy Vigh Jr., Hall of Famer and Champion Jeff Heotzler, and Rising Stars Connor Otten and Roddy Watts, in hopes of expanding its market reach of its product lines within the racing community, while looking forward to sharing success in victory lane.

The 2016 racing season at the Orange County Fair Speedway brought two old friends back working together on and off the track in an effort to bring a strong competitive edge to each individual’s passions. Samuel K. Burlum, CEO of Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc. and former street stock competitor joined up with former teammate Tommy Vigh Jr., to enter a sportsman at the Hard Clay.  The two worked together from 2000 to 2009 when Vigh ran street stocks before making the jump to pro-stocks.

Vigh took command of his new ride, the #92 Extreme Kleaner/Smart Emissions Reducer/Extreme Energy Solutions Sportsman Modified, and was found to be a common site among the field of regular sportsman racers at the Hard Clay. Vigh finished 18th in the rankings by 2016 season’s end; a huge improvement from 36th the year before. Vigh is scheduled to wheel the #92 Extreme Kleaner machine again in 2017, as hunger for a checkered flag and a chance for the championship stays with him.

The two friends and now business partners got an early lead on the 2017 racing season by getting to work on a set of new cars, supplied by Bicknell Racing Products; acquired just after the 2016 regular season came to a close. Vigh took to the track in an updated Bicknell chassis for the 2016 Eastern States Weekend, breaking in the new #H2O-H2O Energy Flow/Smart Emissions Reducer/ Extreme Energy Solutions chariot. This car would become Vigh’s future 358 Modifed/Small Block Modified ride for 2017, where Vigh will be making an entrance into this division for the first time. Catch a preview of the H2O Energy Flow car by clicking here.

“Vigh has been a great representative of our products and of the sport. It will be great to see what he can do with some new equipment at his disposal,” Burlum added.

“This year will most certainly be different for me. It’s the first time I will be driving a brand new car, and I am so thankful for all that Samuel and Extreme has done for me. In this sport loyalty is so rare, and both Samuel and Extreme have had patience in understanding that the race to a championship takes time,” praised Vigh.

Returning to Extreme Team Racing Associates is Rising Star Connor Otten. Otten gained much experience in both the Sportsman Rookie and Regular Divisions at the Hard Clay. Otten piloted the #11 Smart Emissions Reducer/Big Momma Motorsports/Extreme Energy Solutions Sportsman at Accord on Friday Nights; wrapping up the season in 7th place standings. The young gun managed to finish both at Accord and Middletown with a few top five finishes, while putting a few bridesmaid finishes on the books. Otten will again be represented by Extreme Energy Solutions Smart Emissions Reducer as the banner on his ride seen here.

“Things look like they are coming together, and we are eager to get our car on the track,” says Otten.

New comer Roddy Watts is set to take the helm of the #22 Extreme Xtra/Smart Emissions Reducer/Extreme Energy Solutions in a new 2017 Bicknell machine. Watts comes to the table with a wealth of experience, as the rookie has gained a world of knowledge on how to build equipment from the ground up, under an apprenticeship of Hall of Famer and Innovator Bob Dini. Watts was one of Otten’s pit crew, in the 2016 run. They will be teammates and competitors looking forward to 2017.

“It’s overwhelming at first, getting in a new ride for the first time, however I have some great guidance from guys that have won and know what it takes to take the checkered. It’s an opportunity of a life time to work with people that believe in me,” Watts mentioned.

The team adds a new element into the mix for 2017; a working partnership with Hall of Famer and track Champion Jeff Heotzler. The terms and conditions of the deal have not yet been fully disclosed, however it is Extreme Energy Solutions plan to assist Heotzler in exchange for lending his experience and providing guidance to the youth to increase their chances for podium finishes. It is the team’s plan for Heotzler’s machine to display the main logo of Extreme Energy Solutions in the Big Block Division.

The Green Tech Company, Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., located in Sparta, New Jersey, entered the venue of racing for the purposes of providing a testing platform for some of Extreme Energy Solutions products. Since incorporating a motorsports marketing program behind its consumer product offerings, Extreme Energy Solutions has seen a major increase in product sales, including contracts with United Hardware, Menard’s and Orgill Distributors, all coming to the table.

“Motorsports marketing really works. We have seen audiences embrace our consumer products because they love the brand culture that comes from being part of the gritty competitive nature of the world of racing,” mentioned Burlum,

In total, almost fifty (50) stores in over ten states will get a personal visit from the folks at Extreme Kleaner, a measure of good will on behalf of the product and its parent company.

“The Purpose of the 2016 Tour of Stores is to promote awareness to local partnered retailer’s audiences, clients, and fan base on the importance of why they need to continue to support their local family owned neighborhood merchant, which is the pillar of America’s economic driving force,” commented Barry Smith, whom is one of Extreme Kleaner’s Representatives responsible for visiting the list of hosting stores, “Without small business, local jobs would not be made available to every Main Street corner.”

“We are also very privileged to have an opportunity to partner with these stores in offering our products through these local venues; which has been a pleasant surprise that these stores have been giving us such a warm welcoming,” Smith continued.

The 2016 Tour of Stores is to last a period of just over/under 60 days before the Extreme Kleaner Team returns to begin the next nationwide promotions campaign shortly after the conclusion of the the 2016 Tour of Stores is concluded. Most of these stops are focused on a number of selected Hardware Hanks to play host to the Extreme Kleaner Team stops.

Each Hardware Hank, and affiliated brands of Trustworthy and Golden Rule Hardware Stores, is independently owned hardware stores which are under contract with receiving their inventory from United Hardware, which supports the Hardware Hank and affiliated brands. Extreme Kleaner was introduced to Hardware Hank store owners at the June 2016 United Hardware Buying Market event, held in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Extreme Kleaner is a non-toxic biodegradable cleaner-degreaser manufactured in the United States, which originates from the Garden State, in which it is packaged for consumers around the nation. Extreme Kleaner was first offered online advertised and sold on Amazon. In 2013, local retailers began to offer the green cleaner in the Northeast. By year end of 2015, Extreme Kleaner was made available in other hardware chains, auto parts stores, and food stores coast to coast at selected locations in selected states. 2016 brought so many new opportunities for the product to be made available to more consumers including the launch of Extreme Kleaner in both a number of co-ops and larger big box retailers.

A portion of every sale of Extreme Kleaner is dedicated toward assisting a local and/or regional cause. Former causes which received the benefit of this initiative includes Project Help, a cause aimed at helping Veteran Homelessness; STEM Education, the performing arts, and educational non-profit educational forums for environmental and economic sustainability. The product’s parent company, Extreme Energy Solutions has also helped sponsor local 5k runs for many good causes.

Extreme Kleaner is the proud sponsor of the #92 Sportsman Modified and Veteran driver Tommy Vigh Jr. Extreme Kleaner has made also major inroads within the racing community, where more racing teams in the Northeast prefer Extreme Kleaner to deal with caked on dirt and grime after a hard night’s of door to door competition.

“The opportunity to partner with Hardware Hank and United Hardware has been significant for our Company, and we are very thankful of the chance to help promote both Hardware Hank stores and our product,” provided Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, parent of the Extreme Kleaner product.

Local Racers finish the year strong with the help of Green Tech Firm and their innovation

September 15, 2016

Middletown, New York

Source: Extreme Kleaner/Smart Emissions Reducer/Extreme Energy Solutions sponsored racers finish the season strong for their first partnered campaign, with positive showings at the Orange County Fair Speedway and Accord Speedway; drivers Tommy Vigh Jr. and Connor Otten make strong finishes in 2016 as they set their sights on 2017 race season.

The 2016 racing season has come to an end at the Orange County Fair Speedway, located in Middletown, New York and at the Accord Speedway, located in Accord, New York; where both Tommy Vigh Jr., driver of the #92 Sportsman Modified Extreme Kleaner-Extreme Energy Solutions sponsored machine, and Connor Otten, the rising rookie driver of the #11 Sportsman Modified Smart Emissions Reducer-Extreme Energy Solutions sponsored ride, competed on a weekly basis in hunt of the points championship.

Both drivers would make a showing at both tracks, each calling a track their home track, while running a partial campaign at the other track. This was the first year of a multi-year campaign for both drivers to be working together as teammates and having the support of the green technology company, Extreme Energy Solutions, at their side. Both drivers ended the season in respectable position as it relates the total number of weekly competitors would battle for wins, points, bragging rights, and new sponsor dollars and deals.

Tommy Vigh Jr., the driver of the #92 Extreme Kleaner Sportsman entry entered the weekly field at the Orange County Fair Speedway (Middletown, NY) as a regular at the “Hard Clay.” After a dismal season, finishing near the end of the pack (36th) in 2015 as driver of the #4NY Sportsman ride, Vigh took behind the wheel of the Extreme Kleaner machine and finished the 2016 campaign 18th in points; a major accomplishment for the driver whom had major trouble qualifying early on in the season for a feature race. Vigh outpaced his 2015 record, having qualified and finished most of the races he entered and winning a series of qualifying heats.

“This year was the first time working together with teammates and with our new sponsors and car owners. There was a big learning curve in getting use to the updated equipment and new engine packages sourced out by our sponsor,” commented Tommy Vigh Jr.

“Near the end of the season we were beginning to get things right, with the handling and the engine tuning. We believe we would have had some stronger finishes however we ran out of racing season. We only had a chance to compete in 14 contests due to races being cancelled for inclement weather,” added Vigh. “It was nice to get in a few races at Accord Speedway this year.” Tommy Vigh Jr. finished 33rd with only participating a few regularly scheduled events.

Connor Otten, driver of the #11 Smart Emissions Reducer Sportsman machine, dedicated his campaign at the Accord Speedway, located in the Catskills of New York, as a weekly competitor at the Friday Night bargain. Otten fiercely fought for position and would not bow to the pressures of being a rookie or to the challenges that plagued his season; and finished 7th in points out of 44 drivers whom showed up at the Accord venue. This is a major upset from his 2015 run where Otten had ran a limited schedule due to vehicle issues and lack of sponsorship.

Otten also competed on Saturday nights at the Hard Clay, racing in the Rookie Sportsman Division. There he had a number of top five finishes as a Rookie Division competitor and finished 39th out of the 84 man Sportsman roster.

“Once we worked out the bugs, the car began to handle really good on the short track (Accord); and when it would respond, did well within the ranks at Middletown (OCFS); Connor Otten contributed.

“We had a lot of help in the pits and off the track in getting the car ready. Our sponsors were great and provided much needed boost so that we could make for a good showing each week. We wish we could have done better and will aim to do so in 2017.”

Both drivers are slated to continue their campaign as representatives of Extreme Energy Solutions and the Company’s product lines; in the Sportsman division as they look forward toward the 2017 Season.

“Extreme is proud of both driver’s ability, which their skill sets began to reveal near the end of the season,” commented Samuel K. Burlum, CEO of Extreme Energy Solutions, “both drivers are great representatives of our products and of the sport. We enjoyed working with them as the contributed toward our advertising and marketing efforts, and took a sincere interest in testing our products and technology; furthering the amount of data we have on file supporting the effectiveness of our products in real time use.”

“We look to continue our program into 2017 with both drivers, and will make our announcement about our 2017 campaign later this year; however we still have 2016 to look forward to, as the request for these cars to be showed at events, store openings, and product launches have been many. We are glad to promote the sport and our products, brining green to the racing venue and educating potential new fans about both efforts and the sport,” wrapped up Burlum.

Project help is a support mechanism for homeless veterans and their families whereby the can stop at any one of the SOSvets Closets, by Catholic Charities, in four counties so far, and take whatever clothing and items they need at no cost to the Veteran.

The organization has a network of individuals whom donate their services to Veterans in need. This network extends their expertise from seamstresses/tailors to beauticians and counselors.

Project Help is on a constant mission to gather up collections of items for men, women, and children, including but not limited to, such items like baseball caps, shorts, tee shirts, underwear, socks, diapers, sun screen, toiletries, handi-wipes and diaper wipes, shoes and business attire, for redistribution for these men and women and their families whom may be less fortunate.

Aside from accepting donated items at one of the authorized drop sites, Project Help also looks to host a number of fundraisers, with the proceeds being forwarded to one of their project partners which utilize these funds in getting Veterans off the streets. 100% of these proceeds are made available to Vets and their families with no administrative fees or cost taken by Catholic Charities.
