AMMO, Inc. and Roy Hill Racing to Debut a Second Ford Cobra Jet at Indy

(Indianapolis, IN USA) — August 30, 2018—Roy Hill Racing and marketing partner AMMO, Inc. (OTC:POWW) announced today that they will be fielding a second STREAK Visual AmmunitionTM powered by AMMO, Inc. backed Ford Cobra Jet at the world’s most prestigious drag race, the NHRA U.S. Nationals, this weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. The car will be driven by Roy Hill Racing developmental driver, KJ Nowling. The nineteen-year-old Nowling, a college student at Missouri State University, will be competing at “The Big Go” for the first time in his young career.

“We were very pleased by the response following our debut at the Norwalk event in July. Despite some weather issues, the NHRA fans showed up in force and AMMO, Inc.’s patented STREAK Visual Ammunition garnered a tremendous amount of exposure,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AMMO, Inc. Fred Wagenhals. “After carefully watching KJ interact with the fans at the event and through social media, we felt strongly that he would represent AMMO, Inc. and our brands well.”

STREAK Visual Ammunition uses an exclusive, patented technology that allows the shooter visibility from point of fire to impact while remaining invisible to the intended target.  This technology is seeing a groundswell of interest from shooting sports enthusiasts and has significant advantages to military and law enforcement personnel, as it can be deployed without risk of fire upon impact, or damage to the weapon platform.  This is due to STREAK’s proprietary design which excludes previously deployed pyrotechnic elements, making STREAK a safe non-incendiary round for indoor and outdoor use.

“Representing such an innovative company like AMMO, Inc. at the biggest drag race on the planet is an honor and a dream come true,” said KJ Nowling. “I can’t thank AMMO Inc. and Roy Hill Racing enough for believing in me and providing me with this amazing opportunity!”


AMMO, Inc. sponsored shooter, Jen Blake will once again be joining Roy Hill Racing at this weekend’s event. Blake is a competitive 3-Gun shooter who travels the country competing as well as representing AMMO, Inc. at various industry functions.

“The fans in Norwalk were great,” said Blake. “I got to meet and educate so many people who were genuinely interested in AMMO, Inc. and our line of products, specifically our patented Streak Visual Ammunition. I’m looking forward to working with Roy and KJ again this weekend in Indy.”
