Bliss can Fix-A-Flat: New Sponsor for TriStar

Darlington, SC (May 10, 2013) – The No. 1 brand in tire repair, Fix-A-Flat, will debut on Mike Bliss’ Toyota Camry for tonight’s  NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Darlington Raceway. On a track that is notorious for ‘eating-up’ tires, the timing of Fix-A-Flat’s first appearance with TriStar Motorsports seems perfect.

“Having Fix-A-Flat on board for tonight’s VFW Sport Clips Help a Hero 200 is awesome,” said Mike Bliss, driver of the No. 19 Fix-A-Flat Toyota.  “I think fans will really be able to identify with the brand, it’s a product that I’ve even used.”  Fix-A-Flat is a state of the art emergency aerosol tire inflator. Fix-A-Flat allows you to seal and inflate a flat tire in seconds, without the need for a jack.

Invented in 1970 by Snap Products, Fix-A-Flat became the first emergency aerosol flat tire sealant and inflator. In 2011 Fix-A-Flat was acquired by Illinois Tool Words (ITW) and joined the Accessories Marketing family of brands under ITW in March of 2012. With the launch of several new and exciting products under the well-known Fix-A-Flat brand, 2013 has been a cutting-edge year. With a name that says exactly what is does, Fix-A-Flat has become a household name and continues to dominate the aerosol tire inflator market; just connect, inflate and go! 

Bliss will be ready to go racing tonight as the NASCAR Nationwide Series tackles Darlington Raceway for 147 laps of action at the 1.366-mile oval.  Tune in to see the Fix-A-Flat Toyota Camry on ESPN2 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
