Permatex was recognized for its long and colorful history in auto racing and its many contributions to motorsports.

The 2019 award was presented by International Motorsports Hall of Fame members, Bobby and Donnie Allison, to Donny Braga, Permatex sr. marketing manager. The Allison Family Corporate Award honors the memory of Bobby Allison’s late sons, Clifford and Davey. In 1973, Bobby Allison famously ran his 1968 Chevelle Late Model Sportsman for 300 miles at Talladega Motor Speedway without the use of a gasket or lock washers, relying solely on Permatex Lock-Nut to hold the vehicle’s engine together.

Accepting the award on behalf of Permatex and ITW, Braga noted, “Permatex is honored to receive The Allison Family Corporate Award from the Living Legends in Auto Racing. Permatex was founded by Constant A. Benoit Sr., who used his innovative sealants to prevent head gasket blowouts in endurance racecars back in 1915. Since its founding, Permatex has a long and storied history in motorsports, and in addition to its many activities on the NASCAR circuit, has supported many types of professional and amateur racing venues from circle tracks to drag strips to road circuits.”
