Mel Hambelton Racing Returns In 2022 To Support USMTS Racers

WICHITA, Kan. (Feb. 28) Mel Hambelton Ford is back in 2022 to support the men and women who compete in motorsports as the Official New & Used Car Dealer of the USMTS, and racers will find the Mel Hambelton Racing hauler at many USMTS events this season.

Located in Wichita, Kan., the company is the #1 tire-selling Ford dealer in America, and their state-of-the-art hauler is a welcome sight at Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt events.

“We’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to serve the people of Wichita and the surrounding communities for many years, and our commitment to racing is just as strong,” said Mel Hambelton Ford General Manager Phil Nightengale. “It is a great feeling to be able to service racers at the track. On many occasions, we’ve had the right part a racer needs to get back on the track that night.

“That’s why we do this. We love the people and relationships we’ve built and look forward to building event more as we grow with the USMTS and motorsports in general.”

As part of their commitment to USMTS drivers, Mel Hambelton Racing will offer a $100 gift card to the second-place finisher in every USMTS main event this season. What’s more, all of the companies under the Mel Hambelton umbrella are injecting a healthy dose of cold, hard cash into the points funds for all competitors.

As they did last year, Mel Hambelton Ford Racing will once again host an open house event for all USMTS drivers, fans, crews and sponsors during the USMTS event at the 81 Speedway on Aug. 4.

In addition to Mel Hambelton Ford and Mel Hambelton Racing, the company operates Quick Lane Tire & Auto Center at Mel Hambelton Ford and Big Corner Creative—a full-service marketing agency committed to providing customers with personalized advertising campaigns.

Mel Hambelton Racing is a warehouse distributor for many top brands in the industry. They stock a complex inventory of products, with access to items to help racers maximize their bottom line.
