Team Sahlen competes in the rigors of Endurance Sports Car Racing. Every season, the team’s racers put over 100+ hour going around the track. And with these many, many hours of racing, there is the need for the crew to then put many, many hours working on the cars to get them ready to go back on track.
For 2022, Capri Tools will be partnering with Team Sahlen to ensure the crew has the tools they need to take on any job, whether its just a simple brake change or building a brand new race car.
Team Sahlen Sporting Director Will Nonnamaker shared his excitement – “We are so excited to be partnering with Capri Tools. Our crew needs tools they can rely upon. At the last race at Mid-Ohio, we had to change motors in our Porsche, and the job took until 2 am. In those instances, a mechanic doesn’t need a tool to break on them, they need a brand they can trust will be there for them all the way until the job is done. And when you check out the full selection within Capri Tools catalog, you realize that all your needs can be satisfied with 1 stop shopping at their web site.”
