In 2019, Thermo-Tec joined forces with the team at Hoonigan to be the exclusive supplier of heat and sound control products for several of their builds. The partnership between the two has continued and is now heading into its fourth year in 2022. Some of Hoonigan’s builds featuring Thermo-Tec products include: an un-killable BMW endearingly named “Shitcar”, a Duramax diesel-swapped 5th gen Camaro from their show “Knuckle Busters 2”, Season 2 and Season 3 of their “Build and Battle” series, Gymkhana GRID, a 1,000 horsepower big block Donk build, and the 2JZ powered Ford Frightening F-150. The complete Thermo-Tec product line is also available for purchase through Hoonigan’s Carcaine Parts Supply online store.
This year, the Silver Lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center will be transformed into a faithful recreation of Hoonigan’s iconic event at Irwindale Speedway to perform the “Hoonigan Burnyard”. Jeremy White, Sponsorship Coordinator with Thermo-Tec stated, “We are truly honored to be able to work with all of the amazing guys and girls in the HOONIGAN family! When we were asked to place vehicles in the action and static display areas, it was a no brainer.” The Hoonigan Burnyard event is listed by SEMA as one of the top 17 Must-See Show Features this year. It will be open to the public and is scheduled to take place in the Silver Lot during this year’s SEMA Show which runs November 2-5, 2021.
The Thermo-Tec branded vehicle will be a Pro 2 Stadium Truck driven by Adam Daffner, owner of GTF Motorsports and driver of the #70 Pro 2 Truck in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. “Adam is another great guy that we have been lucky enough to work with over the years. He has always gone above and beyond to help promote Thermo-Tec and our products and we can’t wait to see him “Shred” in Vegas.” White said. During the event, vehicles will perform burnouts, donuts, drifting, wall taps, massive hucks and automotive aeronautics. This will definitely be an event that you don’t want to miss!
