Kryptonite Kustomz Returns as Official MWDRS Wrap Provider
TULSA, OK (Apr. 14, 2021) -- Kryptonite Kustomz, among the
country's leading high-performance vinyl wrap specialists,
has been there from the start for the Summit Racing
Mid-West Drag Racing Series (MWDRS) presented by J&A
Service, partnering with the MWDRS since 2017 as its
official vehicle wrap provider.
"We worked with Keith Haney and Todd Martin at Tulsa
Raceway Park and then Keith got the Mid-West Series going
and it takes time to get to know people at a level that
develops trust," says Chris Davis, founder and owner of
the Broken Arrow, OK-based company (www.kkwraps.com).
"But I think that's important in any relationship," he
adds. "And by now we've been around each other long enough
that we basically just have an understanding of each other
and what we need. I mean, it's just that kind of
Kryptonite Kustomz designed and applied the dramatic
graphic wraps that currently adorn both Haney's and
Martin's race cars, as well as their race-going tow rigs.
Kryptonite also recently rewrapped the official
merchandise trailer that attends each MWDRS event.
"Having Chris and his guys handle all our wraps is
invaluable," MWDRS owner and promoter Haney declares.
"Everyone at Kryptonite Kustomz is the best at what they
do and what they do best is make all of us racers look our
Davis explains that custom vinyl wraps can be applied to
almost any vehicle that can be painted, including of
course, race cars. The advantages of a vinyl wrap over
paint include much less weight, quicker application time,
less cost for creating intricate details and schemes, and
the ability to economically repair damage with exact
replicas of the original design.
"We really take pride in going above and beyond and making
each wrap look unique and as close to paint as possible. A
wrap will never be paint, but you can do a quality job if
you choose the right material and apply it properly,"
"I mean, no one loves a nice paint job more than me, I'll
always say that, but wraps, if they're done well, are
actually a better fit in this sport because the cars are
so violent. You know, they're getting a lot of body flex
going over 200 miles an hour and you never know when
damage might happen," he adds. "A wrap is just so much
easier and more cost effective to repair."
Davis also points out team owners and drivers typically
take great pride in their cars and a dramatic wrap job can
significantly alter a team's attitude and fortune.
"You know, they want their car to shine, so to speak, and
they know we can give them an iconic look, something
that's going to put them on the map," he says.
"Take DeWayne Mills and his new 'Golden Gorilla' Pro Mod.
You know, he's been fairly conservative with his cars, but
this time he decided to walk on the wild side and I
guarantee that rebranding will bring that whole race team
to another level, just from the marketing ability of the
new image. It'll be fun to see what happens there."
Haney certainly embraces the value of his Kryptonite
Kustomz wrapped entry as his nitrous-breathing "Black
Mamba" Camaro sports a unique black-and-white, all-over
image of a striking snake. But he also appreciates the
support Davis and his company have shown MWDRS over the
"Kryptonite Kustomz is a true asset to me as a racer, but
even more so as an official partner with the Mid-West Drag
Racing Series," Haney says. "Like I said, they make us all
