Patterson Racing/Omaha Track Press Release


Patterson Racing is pleased to announce the partnership of Omaha Track as a major sponsor for the remainder of 2014 and the 2015 drag racing season. The 3 car team consists of Todd Patterson and Ryan Montford, driving the COPO Camaro’s in NHRA’s Stock Eliminator category. Todd will also drive the Chevy Cobalt in Competition Eliminator. “We’re excited to have Omaha Track on board for next season.” “We plan to run 12 to 14 Events, split between the NHRA Nationals and the LDRS events,” says Todd Patterson.

Patterson Racing has been building high performance drag race engines starting in 1979 and has been involved with the COPO Camaro engine program since it’s returning to drag racing in 2012 and going forward looks to further develop our engine program with the COPO (Stock) and the and the Competition Eliminator engines.

“I am proud to affiliate Omaha Track with Patterson Racing. My purchase of a new COPO Camaro in 2013 started me back down a path that began with the first Z-28 Camaro that I raced at the Kearney, Nebraska Dragway in 1969. We are looking forward to having as much fun with the new Camaros as we did with that first race car 45 years ago. We like to win, and Patterson Racing are proven winners,” Terry Peterson, President of Omaha Track.

Omaha Track has been providing quality, reliable service to the railroad industry for 30 years and grown into the leading railroad material supply company and services contractor in North America, providing products and services to Class 1 and Short Line Railroads, Rail Contractors and Industries.

For this achievement he received a gold Wally trophy at the Division 5 Awards Banquet this past Saturday, 1/18/14. In addition to the trophy he will receive contingency awards from our claimed sponsors.

Patterson Racing prepares for the 2013 racing season with backing from Husky Liners®

Husky Liners® has agreed to come on board as the major sponsor in 2013 for the Patterson Racing team backing both the COPO Camaro and the Chevy Cobalt. “We are pleased for Husky Liners® to expand their role as our primary sponsor and look forward to a promising season,” says Patterson Racing President, Todd Patterson.

The team plans to compete in 14 races in the Lucas Oil National and Divisional schedule, attending the first race at the NHRA Jeg’s SPORTSnationals on March 22nd in Belle Rose, Louisiana.

Todd Patterson will drive both of the Husky Liners® sponsored vehicles. Todd is an 11 time NHRA National Event Winner, a 25 time NHRA LODRS Divisional Event Winner and a past JEG’s Allstar Champ. Patterson has twice been honored as Division 5 sportsman driver of the year and is a 5 time Competition Eliminator Division 5 Champion. He finished second in the Competition Eliminator Points standings in both 1994 and 1995. Todd is also the 4th on the all time Competition Eliminator NHRA National Event Winners list.

We are excited to see the COPO Camaro hit the track with a new custom built Patterson Racing EFI 427 cubic inch engine combination as well as the Chevy Cobalt which will compete in the highly competitive Competition Eliminator class with a 400 cubic inch Splayed Valve Patterson Power Plant.

“It was quite an honor to be one of the people picked by GM out of thousands that had expressed an interest in obtaining one of these cars,” said Bob Tyler, president of Husky Liners at the time of receiving the Camaro. “I believe we were picked to receive the car due to our commitment to team up with Patterson Racing and race the car at NHRA National Events.”

Husky Liners® has been manufacturing interior and exterior vehicle protection products that extend the life of your car, truck or SUV for 25 years. All of our products are designed and manufactured in the USA and most come with a lifetime guarantee. Patterson Racing is a dealer of Husky Liners® products.
