KENT, Washington - Flow International Corporation, the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of ultrahigh-pressure waterjet cutting systems, will make its NASCAR debut with Joe Gibbs Racing at the Kansas Lottery 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series Race at Kansas Speedway on Saturday, October 19th, 2019.
Driven by Joe Gibbs Racing’s Brandon Jones, the No. 19, Flow Waterjet Toyota Supra will hit the track wrapped in Flow’s signature teal color scheme. “Our Flow waterjet is a workhorse behind the scenes at Joe Gibbs Racing, contributing week in and week out to our success on the track. It’s great to share the technology that is so important to our car’s performance under the hood, on the outside of the car with our loyal fans,” says Mark Bringle, technical partner activation manager of Joe Gibbs Racing.
Earlier this year, Joe Gibbs Racing added a Flow Mach 500 4020 waterjet with a Dynamic XD® cutting head and HyperJet® pump to their production operations at their Huntersville, North Carolina facility. With high-precision, multi-axis cutting capabilities and industry-leading technology, the addition of the Flow waterjet system has expanded the team’s ability to design and manufacture the custom, high-performance, precision parts necessary to help the team maintain a competitive edge.
“We are beyond excited to share Flow technology with the NASCAR community, and its loyal fans,” says Steve Rosenblum, Global Director of Marketing at Flow. “As fans ourselves, we are proud to sponsor the highly-successful Joe Gibbs Racing team with elite waterjet technology that supports their goals and makes an important contribution to their astounding performance on the track.”
