LeeBoy Joins Impressive List of Sponsors For X-DRL 2013 Season


Impressed by the locations and tracks that make up the X-treme Drag Racing League’s (X-DRL) debut season, LeeBoy has signed on as an official sponsor for 2013.

The X-DRL announced the new partnership with LeeBoy, adding further momentum to the 2013 campaign, which kicks off on April 6-7 with the X-DRL Spring Nationals at Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park and includes nine stops at many of the nation’s most prestigious tracks.

“The tracks the X-DRL will visit in 2013 lined up great with our customer base and our dealers. We’re excited to sponsor the X-DRL and we think it’s going to be a great season,” LeeBoy General Sales Manager of North America Bryce Davis said.

“We typically bring 100-plus customers to a race, and it’s a fun, relaxing day and a great atmosphere. It’s always a lot of fun for us and our customers.”

Of course, LeeBoy is a recognizable name in drag racing because of a17-year sponsorship with doorslammer world champion Quain Stott.

That association will continue in 2013, as Stott will race the full nine-race schedule with the X-DRL in the Pro X-treme class.

“Quain and his team are just super ambassadors for LeeBoy and they do an incredible job with all of our customers,” Davis said. “They are just tremendous with letting everyone know about the race experience.


“Quain really is part of the LeeBoy team. Everybody in our organization knows Quain. He makes them feel welcome at the races and we could not have picked a better ambassador for LeeBoy. He’s a great racer and a great human being.”

Said Stott: “I’m really thrilled to be with LeeBoy for another year. They’ve always given me tremendous support and I’m really looking forward to the 2013 X-DRL season. They’re going to a lot of great facilities and that’s always exciting.”

A leading U.S. manufacturer of road construction and maintenance equipment since 1964, LeeBoy is known for its quality and innovative design, focusing on providing value, productivity and reliability.

Operating out of a massive, state-of-the-art 219,000-square foot facility in Lincolnton, N.C., LeeBoy produces more than 30 different models of road construction and maintenance equipment, including superior commercial asphalt pavers, motor graders, pneumatic and drum rollers, multi-purpose asphalt maintainers and force feed loaders.

Its large customer base stretches across the nation, and LeeBoy is tremendously excited about X-DRL stops in Belle Rose, La. (May 17-18), St. Louis (June 14-15), Montgomery, Ala. (Oct. 4-5), and the X-treme World Finals on Oct. 25-26 at zMAX Dragway, not far from the LeeBoy facility.

“They’re all good places for us, but there’s some new venues and our dealers always enjoy the racing atmosphere,” Davis said. “Taking them to these events is a way of saying than you for their business, and showing that appreciation they deserve.

“Having the last race of the year close to Quain and our hometown, it might not get any better than that.”
