Chuck Spicer, a seasoned figure in the motorsports industry, has joined Kalitta Motorsports as its new business development manager. The motorsport team has three cars competing in the 2024 National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Mission Foods Drag Racing Series, which takes place on March 8-10, 2024, at the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida.
In his role, Spicer will focus on establishing and cultivating corporate partnerships, securing new sponsorships and contributing to the overall growth and success of Team Kalitta. His extensive background in motorsports, including notable stints with STP Racing, Richard Childress Racing and Iowa Speedway in NASCAR, positions him as a valuable addition to Team Kalitta.
“To say we’re thrilled to bring Chuck to Team Kalitta would be a pretty big understatement,” Team Kalitta general manager Chad Head said. “Chuck has done it all in the motorsports business, and we’re really fortunate to have him on our team.”
Spicer added, “Kalitta Motorsports is one of the crown jewels of NHRA Drag Racing, and I’m really looking forward to working with one of the best teams in all of motorsports.”
“I’ve been really fortunate to work with some great people at some incredible companies in my career, but I’m very happy to join this team. We have the defending Top Fuel champion on a team with three drivers who are all NHRA champions, and our team owner is motorsports legend so we have a strong leader who knows what it takes to win.”
