Murillo’s first NMRA championship came in 2002 at the wheel of his infamous Super Street Outlaw ride, the “Star Car.” That paint scheme was revisited in 2008 and by 2009, SCT had jumped on board as Mike’s title sponsor. Now for 2010 the Mustang will get a fresh, new wrap in full SCT trim as they continue the sponsorship on Murillo’s fox body.

“We are very excited about sponsoring Mike Murillo and his team again in 2010. Mike not only does a great job of representing SCT, he is a genuine nice guy,” says Tim Roi, Marketing & Media Relations. ”Mike doesn’t just collect a sponsorship check, he uses our products and software in his shop to tune customers vehicles, he tows his race trailer all over the country using one of our towing tunes and he takes the time to stop and talk with race fans and sign autographs every chance he gets. We couldn’t ask for a better spokesperson to represent our company and our products.”

It was this car and it’s single-turbocharged power plant that carried Murillo to his championship in 2002, but not without the inevitable struggle that comes along with heads-up drag racing. Fast forward to 2008, and to the return of Murillo to the NMRA behind the wheel of the totally revamped chassis that he had originally purchased from Kevin Marsh in 2001. The beautiful chassis featured several innovative items, such as trunk-mounted twin turbochargers, (which have been since ditched) a NASCAR style oval exhaust system, and more. Mike Murillo expressed his excitement by saying, “Murillo Motorsports is happy to announce the continued support from SCT in 2010. Our relationship is a match made in heaven with the fact that SCT is exclusively all we use on our customers and personal vehicles. We are also stoked about a bigger and better program from Precision Turbo and Trickflow.”

Mike’s fox body will make its way to Orlando a few days prior to the NMRA season opener next week to have the wrap applied. They will then make the short drive to Bradenton Motorsports Park for the first race of the 2010 NMRA season. Check back then as and will have complete Bradenton coverage and shots of Mike’s completed wrap.
