John Gibson Runs Well, Has Tough Finish at Hickory for Team Mitigator

HICKORY, NC (April 22, 2013) – – After a strong run at the beginning of the race, John Gibson and his Gibson Motorsports team came home a disappointing 12th at the Catawba Valley 250 at Hickory Motor Speedway this past Saturday.

After having to replace the transmission in John’s #13 Mitigator Ford Fusion late Friday night before heading to Hickory, the Gibson Motorsports team was cautiously optimistic going into Saturday’s morning practice.

“We just want to thank Buzze Racing for renting us a transmission at the last minute like they did. Without it, we probably wouldn’t have been able to run this race. We look forward to seeing what we can do with it,” John said early Saturday morning.

The afternoon qualifying session left John and his Mitigator Ford Fusion starting the race in 8th place.

As soon as the green flag fell, John began making his way towards to the front of the field. A little over fifty laps into the race John was holding strong in the top five and by lap 70, he had climbed his way up to third.

The team took four tires, fuel, and made adjustments during the halfway break, and restarted 11th. John was happy with the adjustments and his MitiGator Ford Fusion was up to 6th by lap 185 when they were involved in an incident with Gus Dean on the backstretch.

“I was really happy with the MitiGator Ford Fusion after we made some midrace adjustments. We were moving through the field when we got turned. Although we didn’t finish where we wanted to, I feel really confident about this car and I look forward to racing it again,” John said. “I also just want to thank our sponsor, MitiGator. We love having them on board and appreciate their ongoing support.”

After the incident, Gibson Motorsports experienced battery issues and couldn’t get the car to re-fire. They finished in 12th place. The Gibson Motorsports team hopes to be back on the track at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, VA in June.

Team Mitigator Signs on for another Year of Supporting Gibson Motorsports

MitiGator commits to 2010 sponsorship of Gibson Motorsports

Gibson Motorsports is excited and proud to announce that MitiGator, the primary sponsor of USA Racing Pro Cup driver, John Gibson during the last half of 2009, has signed on to sponsor John for the 2010 season.

Barbara McKinney, President of Sea Systems Group (SEAS) said “We are pleased to be the primary sponsor of John Gibson Motorsports for 2010.  As we get better acquainted, our relationship with them continues to grow beyond USAR Pro Cup sponsorship.  SEAS and Gibson are jointly working to develop and evaluate innovative new MitiGator products for the motorsports industry.  We have high hopes that “Team MitiGator Racing” and will evolve into a new business unit that has an impact on all types of motorsports from asphalt and dirt to off-road and offshore.”

MitiGator is an engineered cushioning system designed to protect people from hi-speed, hi-impact assaults and to allow them to continue to perform their jobs or enjoy their leisure time.  The MitiGator uses patented air control technology working with 4,044 surfaces per square foot to dissipate energy before it is transmitted to the body and thus help alleviate problems.

“We are so excited about MitiGator’s involvement,” said John Gibson.  “The product is fantastic, and the people at Sea Systems Group that manufacture Mitigator are just top notch.  We are so proud to represent them.”

MitiGator is produced by Sea Systems Group in Clarksville, VA.  Gibson Motorsports is not the only organization that thinks Sea Systems Group is a class act.  On December 11, 2009, Sea Systems Group was awarded the Clarksville Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award.

MitiGator was originally developed as an engineered product that was, and continues to be heavily used in military vehicles in all aspects of combat.  The MitiGator is designed to dissipate a blast, thus protecting troops from death.  In 2009 MitiGator expanded into the racing industry to protect race car drivers and their equipment.  In addition, the company is looking at other applications that can use the same technology thus reducing the stresses on workers, athletes, and others from repeated shock.

“This is a product that has truly unlimited applications,” said Chuck Gibson, co-owner of Gibson Motorsports.  “MitiGator came on board last year and outfitted John’s car.  John has reported less fatigue and less low back pain especially following the longer races. We are truly impressed.”

MitigatorInc a Success at the Performance Racing Industry Show in Orlando

Well, it was a great show in Orlando at the Performance Racing Industry Show/Expo this year.  We got to meet many people involved with NASCAR, Monster Trucks, and overall racing enthusists.  John Gibson of Team Mitigator and Gibson Motorsports came to visit along with his #13 Ford Fusion, and was available for autographs, pictures, and overall discussions of what its like to be a USAR Pro.

MitigatorInc also setup a demo to allow you to feel the benefits of the Mitigator and it proved to be a very effective demonstration.  We had many people/Teams interested in implementing our product in their race cars so we were pretty busy gathering information to ship out product.
