YPSILANTI, MI (October 20, 2022) — At the 8th annual Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) show, Revchem Composites announced a partnership with Kalitta Motorsports to display NHRA driver’s J.R. Todd’s Funny Car body in their exhibit space at the Anaheim Convention Center. The Toyota GR Supra body, designed and constructed in 2021 for the 2022 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series, will be on display throughout the entire show, ending on October 20th.
“Working with Revchem Composites on the new Toyota GR Supra body was a great experience,” said Chad Head, Kalitta Motorsports General Manager. “Our ability to utilize their expertise with composites and advanced materials made our new DHL body lighter and stronger, which created huge strides in performance thanks to their contributions. To have this body on display at CAMX is a very cool opportunity to show off our sport and our business relationship in front of industry leaders from around the world.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Kalitta Motorsports to have the J.R. Todd’s Funny Car body as part of our presence here at CAMX,” said Pete Pendleton, Revchem President. “It’s a demonstration of how our materials and technical experience can help immediately impact safety and performance. And, of course, an 11,000 horsepower Funny Car body draws a lot of attention and gets many conversations started. We are thankful Kalitta Motorsports participated in the show with us this year.”
The Toyota GR Supra Funny Car body is the centerpiece of the Revchem Composites display, which an internationally diverse group of manufacturers will get to see firsthand.
CAMX brings together all aspects of the world’s composites and advanced materials communities for one all-encompassing event. CAMX is where the industry meets to get business done, and the industry discovers the latest products, solutions, and advanced industry technology. The composites and advanced materials industry is shaping how products are designed and developed in powerful new ways. Lighter, stronger, and more energy-efficient composites are integral to the future of intelligent and innovative manufacturing and product solutions for the future.
The event features a unique, three-day learning experience, with over ten live demos on vacuum infusion, light resin transfer molding, and advanced processes producing real-life parts. CAMX is recognized as one of the top trade shows held in the U.S., according to “Trade Show Executive.” The composites event brings in roughly 500 exhibitors and 6,000 attendees, with 2019 breaking the record at 521 exhibitors and 7,600 attendees. Anaheim has historically had the best turnout, so the 2022 event is expected to have record attendance and interest.
