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.”
