National Tractor Pullers Association Awards Hot Shot’s Secret Manufacturer of the Year for 2021

Hot Shot’s Secret was recently honored with the award title Manufacturer of the Year by the National Tractor Pullers Association (NTPA). The award was presented to Josh Steinmetz, Lubrication Specialties Inc. E-commerce Manager on Saturday, December 4 at NTPA’s 50th Awards Banquet. The annual banquet recognizes the people and organizations who give support to tractor and truck pulling, the world’s heaviest motorsport, including competitors, families, crewmembers, promoters and sponsors.

Hot Shot’s Secret became a sponsor of NTPA truck and tractor pulling in 2020, under a three-year partnership which designates Hot Shot’s Secret as the official Fuel Additive of the NTPA. Hot Shot’s Secret, the fastest growing lubricant brand in the U.S.A., manufactures a full line of fuel and oil additives including Diesel Extreme which was named by Truck Trend on “the best diesel additive in the game.” 

“Hot Shot’s Secret came aboard a couple of years ago, and almost immediately competitors with diesel fueled vehicles in both tractor and truck categories were eager to familiarize themselves with their array of products,” says Gregg Randall, NTPA Executive Director. “What our competitors discovered was that Hot Shot’s Secret had applications for power, performance and lubricity needs – both paramount in our high horsepower world of tractor and truck pulling. Results were being realized on the track by using the products. Now, by earning the “Manufacturer of the Year” award from our association, the secret is out – Hot Shot’s Secret is proving to be an important component to the equation to increase and add reliable power. We appreciate their involvement with the NTPA and are excited to see what else is formulated to help our sport!”
