Kopp Sponsor Does it All! 

Aspiring Eastern Canadian Top Dragster racer Rick Kopp can’t help but be pretty impressed by the capabilities of his new sponsor….

Kopp, who is from Burlington Ontario, is showcasing that newly acquired association with “We Install It” within his great looking drag racing operation.

“We Install It” is a company that draws from a pool of over 1500 skilled people all across Canada,” Rick explained.  “They do any and all kinds of installations for customers of Lowes, Home Depot and Rona stores.  They do everything from faucets to home additions.”

And Rick’s new partnership is allowing him to do some installation himself within the  performance department of his racing program this season.

During the recent Canadian Nitro Nationals at Cayuga – Kopp was the #1 qualifier over 21 cars entered in the Top Dragster Quick 32 event portion.  Rick hit a career best 6.063 secs at 227.50 mph to earn that position.  

That great run came only after a lot of hard work.  Kopp made a number of important upgrades to his dragster for this season, not the least of which is a new supercharged Hemi engine program from Oddys.

“That 6.0 showed us that we have a lot of potential in this car,” he surmised.  “There is certainly a 5-secs run possible — but to be honest that is not our intent.   In the circuit we race, our objective is to try to qualify fast (#1) but then back the car down to make it more consistent and go rounds.  A consistent mid 6.0 car is what would make me happy.”

Kopp’s racing operation is also a very popular pit area attraction.  His attention to detail and very professional presentation stands out and that does not go unnoticed or unappreciated by racing fans.
