TMS Titanium Partners with Drag Racing Prodigy Alex Taylor
New agreement to support company’s initiative to sponsor up-and-coming stars

POWAY, CA—May 4, 2015—TMS Titanium has entered into a partnership with 17-year-old Alex Taylor, the youngest person to ever compete in Drag Week. This partnership demonstrates TMS Titanium’s commitment to supporting up-and-coming drivers in the auto racing industry, and will begin with a celebratory kick-off at the IHRA Nitro Jam Summer Nationals in Cordova, IL, commencing May 29th.

“TMS has a passion for racing and will continue to show its support and commitment to moving the industry forward. We are excited about working with Alex Taylor and her team, as it is extremely important to support young, talented drivers,” said James Hostetler, VP of TMS Titanium.

As part of their agreement TMS will provide both titanium products and expertise, with the goal to increase car performance. Titanium is as strong as steel but much lighter in weight, making it a highly sought after material in the auto racing industry.

“I’m thrilled to have TMS Titanium as a partner. It’s an honor to be representing such a great company, and I’m looking forward to what the future holds. Not only will I have the backing of the TMS product line, but I will also be supported by a team of wonderful people with in-depth knowledge of racing, all working for the same goal,” said Alex Taylor.
