Recognized for its quick, reliable seal with minimal curing time, Permatex The Right Stuff 90 Minute Gasket Maker allows technicians and do-it-yourselfers to make leak-proof gaskets that cure in just 90 minutes. It is the only gasket maker in a tube that can return a vehicle to service that quickly. The Right Stuff 90 Minute outperforms conventional pre-cut gaskets by delivering an exceptionally strong and fast seal. It is blow-out resistant and can be used on applications including valve covers, intake manifolds, coolant flanges, oil pans, and timing covers.

The new gasket maker series is offered in two formulations, The Right Stuff 90 Minute Grey Gasket Maker for use on late model domestic and import vehicles and The Right Stuff 90 Minute Black Gasket Maker for applications requiring a strong, flexible seal.

Eric Seibold, senior product & innovation manager, ITW Permatex, accepted the award on behalf of Permatex and noted, “Permatex is thrilled to receive this award as voted on by actual product buyers during the show. We have developed The Right Stuff 90 Minute Gasket Maker based on extensive field research with professional technicians who wanted a reliable gasket maker that could quickly be put back in service. This award is a testament to Permatex’s commitment to listen to its customers and develop new product innovations that make their jobs easier.”

Motorsports pros Rick Jones, Kevin Lawrence, Dave River, and Jeff Wick have announced the rebirth of the Midwest Pro Stock Association (MPSA), a drag racing series formed by Jim Wick in the late 1980s. The series folded following the passing of Wick in 2002. 

“A group of us were together at the World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova—which itself is an end-of-the-season match race—and we thought it would be a good deal to bring back match racing year-round like they used to. So I called [Jim’s son] Jeff Wick to see if we could use the MPSA name. He was on board and even wanted to help and compete, too,” Lawrence said to PRI. “Jeff will compete in the Matchmaker car they haven’t run since Jim’s passing.”
