MAHLE Aftermarket announced it extended its sponsorship with multiple champion auto racer, Ryan Gustin, of Reaper Nation Racing for the 2023 season, which marks the third year of collaboration between the two organizations.
Among his many career highlights, Gustin is a two-time United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) National Champion.
The agreement includes serving as a sponsor of Gustin’s World of Outlaws Late Model series car and as an engine rebuild partner with Tri-Star Engines & Transmissions. Gustin is also an integral member of the Team MAHLE engine parts test team.
“The relationship between MAHLE and Reaper Nation Racing is just one example of us working with winning teams who appreciate our OE-quality parts,” said Jon Douglas, president, MAHLE Aftermarket North America. “We have been supplying parts for high-performance cars for nearly a century. MAHLE is looking forward to supporting Ryan Gustin and his team again this year.”
‘The Reaper’ is scheduled to compete at some of racing’s most elite events, which conclude with the World finals in Concord, North Carolina in early November. Gustin and his team have already started off the 2023 season strongly with a first-place finish at the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series in Gibsonton, Florida, according to MAHLE Aftermarket.
