Story By: EXTREME ENERGY SOLUTIONS – CHARLOTTE, NC – ARCA/DIRT Car Driver and Brand Ambassador for the green tech company, Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., Tommy Vigh Jr., is set to make a run for a top spot in the Lucas Oil 200 at Daytona ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards, scheduled for February 9, 2019.
AExtreme Energy Solutions, Inc., and Tommy Vigh Jr. continue their relationship with Andy Hillenburg’s Fast Track Racing Enterprises ARCA Team.
The driver-team-marketing partnership took hold starting with Vigh’s ARCA debut run at Madison International Speedway, June 15, 2018, for the Herr’s Potato Chip 200; where Vigh would finish 15th in the contest behind the wheel of the #10 Extreme Kleaner Available at Hardware Hank Toyota. Vigh would go on to make two more ARCA starts for the year, finishing 12th at Illinois State Fairgrounds, in the Allen Crowe 100; and 13th in the General Tire Grabber Presented by Federated Auto Parts at DuQuoin State Fairgrounds; both of which were ARCA Race Events on the Dirt. It was Vigh’s first attempt to compete at each of these tracks.
Vigh wrapped up his 2018 local-regional DIRT Car campaign on a higher note. Finishing 5th in points in the Sportsman Division at the Orange County Fair Speedway, he added to the stats a multitude of top 5 and top 10 finishes. Vigh also took home the accolade supported by the fans, The Hard Clay Magazine, and by OCFS as the Most Popular Sportsman Driver of the Year.
Vigh would compete at the famed Eastern States Weekend Race Event, held at Orange County Fair Speedway, Middletown, New York, in the Sportsman and Small Block Modified Divisions. Vigh, as the pilot of the H2O Energy Flow by Extreme Energy Solutions Sportsman ride, raced his way into the B Main, to pick up the last qualifying spot for the 50 Lap Sportsman Division Feature. Vigh came from a dead last position to finishing 5th during the bargain, putting Vigh in contention and was awarded the Hard Charger Award.
Vigh then continued the momentum on Saturday at ESW as driver of the #92 Extreme Kleaner by Extreme Energy Solutions Small Block Modified. Vigh would race himself into a starting position in the 25 lap B Main Race, starting again from the tail of the pack and chasing down a top 10 finish. It was Tommy Vigh Jr.’s first Eastern States Weekend Small Block Modified contest.
Extreme Energy Solutions, Tommy Vigh Jr., and Andy Hillenburg seek for the chemistry to continue as Vigh is scheduled to take the wheel of the #10 Extreme Kleaner/SMART Emissions Reducer by Extreme Energy Solutions Toyota supplied by Fast Track Racing Enterprises for Daytona.
“This year at Daytona will be a great experience for our Fast Track team. Tommy Vigh Jr. is a rookie there, however, he is a skilled and accomplished veteran behind the wheel in other racing divisions, which could lead to big results for our race team, and it’s always fun to be a part of a driver’s first trip to Daytona,” contributed Andy Hillenburg, Owner of the Fast Track Racing Enterprises Team.
“We are proud of the job Vigh has done for us on and off the track. Vigh has been a great Brand Ambassador for our SMART Emissions Reducer, Extreme Kleaner, H2O Energy Flow and Extreme Xtra Fuel Treatment technology/product brands,” added Samuel K. Burlum, with Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc. “Just the same as Vigh’s career began at the dirt track, our product brands also debuted with local race community audiences, who were swift to support the products as a result of Extreme’s commitment to support one of their favorite local drivers.”
“Vigh is a true representation of the foundation that assisted in building the sport of racing, and it is evident that race fans and consumers can identify with Vigh’s story, as he is truly a blue collar racer,” continued Burlum. When he is not behind the wheel, Vigh reports to his off track career as a tradecraft welder-fabricator at Statewide Line Stripping, located in Parsippany, New Jersey, where Vigh applies his talents in building equipment and machines for highway improvements.
Vigh began his race career in the mid-1990’s as most grass-roots racers do; competing in the local street stock division on weekends, in between the schedule of a day job. Over the last 20+ years, Vigh has amassed a number of wins and career accolades at local and regional tracks throughout the Northeast. Vigh then got his biggest opportunity to prove his talent when he partnered with his good friend Samuel K. Burlum and Extreme Energy Solutions. They set to build out a competitive DIRT Car team effort. Their efforts paid off for Vigh and Extreme, as they have been able to grow together, leading up to new opportunities, partnering for events within the ARCA Racing Series Presented by Menards schedule, as driver and company both get a chance to leave their mark at the “World Center of Racing.”
