John Gibson Back Racing CARS Pro Cup in Mitigator Ford Fusion

John Gibson Back In The Gas; Preparing For More 

“Team Returns To CARS Pro Cup Series; Prepares For PASS Invasion”  

STATESVILLE, North Carolina (June 28, 2012) – – After a brief sabbatical from Motorsports competition, John Gibson made his long awaited return to the CARS Pro Cup Series this past weekend at Caraway (N.C.) Speedway behind the wheel of the No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion.

Making his return to the series for the first time since 2010, Gibson and his John Gibson Racing (JGR) team approached the race with optimism, especially since his 47th career start would be his first at the Asheboro, North Carolina-based track.

Despite chasing the handling on their No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion throughout practice during the day, the team made some aggressive changes for qualifying in hopes of giving the Statesville, North Carolina native a balanced automobile for the CARS Pro Cup 250 presented by CV Products.

In time trials, Gibson negotiated the eighth quickest lap with the 12-car field boasting incredibly close lap times. Unfortunately, the avid racer informed his team that he lost his power steering during his two lap hustle forcing the veteran to raise the bar from behind the seat in extremely warm temperatures.

During his CAR Pro Cup return, Gibson utilized patience and aggression but impressively held his own on the track despite the circumstances battling against him and maneuvering a loose No. 13 Mitigator Ford Fusion. During the race’s first segment, Gibson lost a lap to the leaders but through adjustments on pit road and being the beneficiary of the “lucky dog”, the 27-year old battled back to finish the first segment ninth and on the lead circuit.

A mandatory 10-minute break allowed Gibson to confer with his crew about changes to make to their blue oval hoping for a better second half which consisted of 125 laps.

When racing resumed, Gibson was a man on a mission and it showed with his lap times and moves on the track. Despite still fighting a loose racecar, he had muscled his way to fifth. Inside the race’s final 50 laps, Gibson’s machine knocked sideways slapping the front stretch wall which knocked portions of the exhaust and crush panels loose. Giving his all for an additional 20 laps, the driver informed his team that the conditions were becoming unbearable behind the wheel forcing him to bring his automobile to pit lane where he would retire from the race and being scored in the eighth position in the overall rundown.

“I’m proud of everyone on the John Gibson Motorsports team for giving nothing less than 100 percent at Caraway,” he said. “We fought the loose condition all day and it finally just snapped near the end of the race and I tagged the wall. It knocked the exhaust loose, causing fumes to consume the racecar. That’s never a good sign and I wasn’t going to put myself or anyone else in danger out on the racetrack, so we just brought the car in. I want to thank Mitigator for stepping aboard and helping out for the race, it really means a lot to me and everyone who standings behind our small group.”

Last Saturday’s contest was an initial kick-off for Gibson and his team. Next month, the team will advance to the Pro All Star Series (PASS) when they compete in an event at The Motor Mile in Radford, Virginia.

“We’re looking forward to joining the PASS tour,” offered Gibson. “It’s going to be a new scene for us, but everyone that we’ve talked to has been incredibly easy-going and very helpful. I’m hoping that we’re able to have a good clean race with a strong finish. We’re excited about having Mitigator back aboard too.”

The Death Of An Icon

Steve Jobs once said ” being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.”

Steve Jobs was a man who had a vision for the kind of products he wanted to produce for consumers. He has been called many things: visionary, genius, titan of industry, but Steve Jobs will be remembered as a man who simply wanted to change the world.

The death of Steve Jobs has put into perspective just how amazing Jobs was. Steve wasn’t concerned about impressing focus groups, he wanted to create products that he loved and enjoyed. He was more of an artist than a tech designer.  Today the world is better off because of Steve Jobs. His products have changed the way we live, communicate, and do business. Many companies, including our own, owe Steve Jobs a debt of gratitude for making products that make doing business easier and more efficient.

With all the problems in the world, we could certainly use more men like Steve Jobs to innovate, create, and make products that make the world a happier and more peaceful place.

It should be our sincere hope that with the death of Steve Jobs brings to life a new generation of innovators and entrepreneurs who can challenge the status quo  and follow their creative vision, just like Steve did. In his death, we celebrate a life that was full of accomplishment and triumph. Steve serves as an inspiration to that rebel within us that inspires us to chart our own course in the choppy waters of life. May you rest in peace Steve Jobs, you will always be remembered.

The New iPhone 5… I mean iPhone 4s

Yesterday the Apple universe was anticipating the much awaited iPhone 5 that was supposed to bring down the heavens and do your taxes all at the same time-instead, we got the iPhone 4s. Looking at the 4s, you’ll notice that it’s almost identical to the iPhone 4. So if you were looking for a wider screen and thinner frame, you’ll be disappointed.

What makes the iPhone 4s standout is its voice activated personal assistant Siri, which allows you to set up your daily calender, alarm, search for movie times, and other queries all through voice commands.

Seems impressive, however the Siri app is already available for the iPhone 4, so this is nothing we haven’t already seen before. Other subtle changes are its faster processor that is not noticeable  to the naked eye compared to the iPhone 4. Surely the iPhone 4s will make impressive sales numbers, but there was a wow factor missing when the phone was introduced yesterday.

The magic that was around previous phones just wasn’t there. Maybe it’s the absence of Steve Jobs, perhaps it’s just that the phone didn’t break any barriers like older phones.  Looks like we’ll have to wait a little bit longer for the iPhone 5.

Good Ole American Muscle

Ford Mustang GT & Chevrolet Camaro SS

Muscles cars are back! Not that they have ever gone anywhere, but muscle cars have made a resurgence in the consumer’s diet for fast cars on the cheap. The Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro, and Dodge Challenger are bringing back a retro look that is leading to huge sales- in 2010, Mustang sales went up 71.1%  compared to 2009 sales figures.

Both the Camaro and Mustang have made the Consumer Reports recommended buy lists putting them amongst the top 20 best selling cars in America. The Challenger, Mustang, Camaro trio are constantly tested against one another by the major car publications like Motor Trend, trying to determine which car burns the most rubber.

To put it simply, muscle cars are fun, exciting, and affordable to anybody willing to shell the bucks for a little good old fashion American power. The issue with muscle cars is the ride. The suspension and frame on some of the pony cars can give you a rough ride if you didn’t blow the big bucks on the higher end model with better suspension.

If you’re a larger individual, driving a pony car can kill your back, making it an uncomfortable ride- taking away from the muscle car experience.  Equipping the seat’s of muscle cars with the MitiGator Cushioning System can make up for the discomfort that many of us feel when driving a muscle car. The material can absorb impacts from typical vibrations that occur when driving. This can give ample support to the lower back, reducing the risk of back pain and other injuries. If you own a muscle car and you have any feedback or questions, please click on the media link below.

The MitiGator™ uses patented air control technology working with over 4,000 surfaces per square foot to dissipate energy before it is transmitted to the body and thus help alleviate the problems.
