Formula Drift Sponsorship
Permatex will also sponsor Dylan Hughes and the #129 BMW in three events during the 2021 Formula Drift season. Permatex’s sponsorship represents a welcome return to Formula Drift. In 2019, Permatex was the Official Gasket Maker of Formula Drift and served as presenting sponsor during the first race of the season.

Permatex will be Hughes’ primary sponsor during Round 3: The Gauntlet in Englishtown, NJ June 18-19, 2021; Round 4: Borderlands in Erie, PA July 9-10, 2021; and Round 4: Throwdown in Monroe, WA July 30-31, 2021.

“Permatex is extremely excited to support Dylan in his pursuit of top end speed at Bonneville and Formula Drift,” added Ashley Khan, Permatex Marketing Manager. “The origins of Permatex can be found in the racing world, and we are thrilled that a new generation of enthusiasts are taking up that tradition and building on it. We can’t wait to see Dylan make his run!”

The relationship between Permatex and Hughes does not end on the track, as Hughes currently stars in several Permatex YouTube videos showcasing new products and proper application.
