Paul Lee Racing has announced that Global Electronic Technology will be partnering with the team for the 2020 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing season as a sponsor on Lee’s Nitro Funny Car. His dragster will feature the Global Electronic Technology scheme as the major marketing partner for 12 selected races.
Lee, the president of McLeod Racing, currently plans to run 15 total races in 2020 with his “friends and family” funny car team.
Lee, a survivor of a widow-maker heart attack in late 2016, will continue his journey to return to the seat of a nitro funny car. 2019 was his ‘Comeback Tour’ and the car competed in 8 races with the Jim Oberhofer-led team. In 2020 Lee plans to grow his program and compete at the highest level of NHRA and continue as a part of Straightline Strategy Group.
“I’m extremely excited for the 2020 NHRA season. If you’re racing at this level and as competitive as Jim O, the team, and I are, the goal is to grow with the personnel and resources that it takes to put us in a position to compete for race wins and hopefully, championships. That has always been my goal in racing,” says Lee. “When I returned to this sport after my heart recovery, I made it a point to build a competitive team, race hard, and most importantly, to have fun racing with my friends and family.”
Global Electronic Technology specializes in e-commerce solutions, ranging from point-of-sale terminals to secure internet payment gateways.
The Global Electronic Technology team will be making appearances at the first 4 races and will continue to be at select events for the remainder of the year. In addition to Global Electronic Technology, the team has also welcomed Red Line Oil, Gates and Justice Brothers to the roster, joining Weld Wheels, Mac Tools, TMS Titanium and ARP as product suppliers.
The team plans on testing in Las Vegas for the PRO pre-season session and will begin the 2020 season at the WinterNationals in Pomona, CA.
