John Gibson of Gibson Motorsports Joins Sea Systems Staff

John Gibson Joins Sea Systems Staff

January 12, 2010

John Gibson, driver and co-owner of the USAR Pro Cup Team MitiGator™ Gibson Motorsports #13 Ford Fusion race team has joined Sea Systems Group, Inc. as Marketing and Sales Specialist this month. Sea Systems was a sponsor of the race team in 2009 and has signed on as primary sponsor for the 2010 USAR Pro Cup race season.

John brings special talent to the MitiGator team due to his unique experiences and education. John has been an active racer since he was thirteen years old and has been an USAR Pro Cup driver since 2005. In 2009 John finished 8th in driver points in the USAR season. As part of the sponsorship program John races using a MitiGator lined race seat that he says is “awesome” at preventing back and leg pain after the races. This experience makes him very well qualified to help transition the MitiGator technology to extreme sports padding of all types.

In addition, until recently John was Technical Editor at Circle Track Magazine and wrote several technical papers for the magazine each month and was responsible for daily postings on two racing blogs. “This background will serve our goals of increasing our web presence using the blogosphere, Twitter, YouTube and other internet tools” says Rick McKinney, VP of SEAS.

“John’s emphasis of study at Southwest Missouri State University was in Entrepreneurship and that is a talent much in demand at SEAS as we grow the company in these turbulent economic times” says Rick.

Look for John’s contributions on our blogs, Twitter, Face Book and more in coming months. You can follow our progress at the following sites and more:

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 www.mitigatorinc.com 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.”

The Team MitiGator™ Offshore Racing boat (#510) is owned and driven by Warren Miller of High Priority Offshore Racing (www.highpriorityosr.com).  Warren began offshore racing in 1998 and started racing OPA Offshore Racing in 2006 with an OPA National Points Title in his class.  Team MitiGator™ Offshore won second place in the 2009 OPA GEICO Triple Crown US Championship in its class and took one checkered flag this year. Join the Facebook “Team MitiGator Offshore Racing” Group to keep in contact with Warren and the crew as they get ready for the 2010 season.

Sea Systems Group sponsors Team MitiGator Racing and is the manufacturer of MitiGator™ products. The MitiGator™ Technology 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.  The shock and vibration dampening features of the MitiGator give a competitive edge by the end of a long race.  These forces, when transmitted to drivers, can impair their comfort, performance, and visual acuity and in extreme cases, even the ability to control the vehicle. Whole body vibration in the range of 4 Hz vertical and 1-2 Hz side to side can create loss of control for vehicle operators. This is a resonant frequency (the range of motion is increased rhythmically with this frequency) and operators can be literally unable to control the vehicle. Find out more at our new MitiGator website at www.MitiGatorinc.com.

The SEAS parking lot is directly behind the Wachovia Bank on Virginia Ave. in Clarksville, VA.  Please come down and meet the Team MitiGator™ drivers.
