Las Vegas, NV. – “Dedicated to Safety” has long been the tag line for the NHRA. Johnny Ahten understands the importance of staying safe when he is traveling at speeds over 270 miles per hour on the track and as a LA County fire captain. He knows all too well that sometimes trouble can occur. This is why Ahten trusts DJ Safety. This weekend the Island Renovations / Combust Filters dragster will be highlighting DJ Safety with a visual overhaul that will continue through the Pomona Finals.
“DJ Safety has been a valued sponsor of Ahten Racing for many years and we are excited to place them loud and proud,” said Ahten. “Big Ben and his crew are amazing and their craftsmanship and commitment to safety is monumental. My new race suit not only looks great, but it’s very comfortable. I know it will protect me if needed.”
DJ Safety’s Ben Conant added, “DJ Safety would like to thank Johnny Ahten Racing for being part of the DJ Safety family and our great partnership we have.”
