The Green Tech Company, Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc., located in Ogdensburg, New Jersey, formally announces its partnership with Veteran Race Car Driver Tommy Vigh Jr, a deal which extends thus far for the next two seasons. Extreme and Vigh were able to come together in forming an alliance that puts Vigh behind the wheel of new equipment aimed for the purposes of providing a testing platform for some of Extreme Energy Solutions green tech automotive solutions for emissions reduction and performance.
Tommy Vigh Jr. will be the captain behind the wheel of the #92 Extreme Kleaner/Extreme Energy Solutions Inc. sponsored Sportsman Modified, for 2016 and 2017, with home turf being declared as Orange County Fair Speedway (OCFS), in Middletown, New York playing host to this new venture. The alliance formed, known as Extreme Team Racing Associates, puts Vigh at the helm of machines powered by 602 GM crate motor powered equipment provided by Crate Motor Connection, located in New Holland, Pennsylvania. The newly formed team plans to also run their machines at the popular Eastern States Weekend event (Oct 2016 at the OCFS), while also touching down at a few races at the Accord Speedway (NY) and this year’s Super Dirt Week race event (hosting track yet to be named).
Extreme Energy Solutions, Inc. offers the technology known as the Smart Emissions Reducer, an emissions reduction device for gasoline and diesel powered engines, and is currently testing their equipment on the standard 602 GM crate motor in the lab on a controlled dyno and on the track. Extreme Energy Solutions looks to introduce the Smart Emissions Reducer as standard equipment as part of the 602 GM Crate motor once testing is complete. The Smart Emissions Reducer has been already proven in automotive labs such as Roush, Keshi, and Free-Col. The device has also been tested by various commercial and municipal vehicle fleet operators, which have seen between 25% to 65% reduction in harmful toxic emissions with vehicles retrofitted with the device, while recognizing fuel efficiency gains between 2.5% to 15%.
Having access to the racing community, Extreme has already begun to commercialize its consumer product lines to partnered retailers and race fans alike. Extreme Kleaner, the company’s non-toxic biodegradable multi-purpose cleaner-degreaser, is now offered in selected Hardware Hanks, True Value, Ace Hardware Stores; Independently owned grocery stores, East Coast Speed, and selected retailers. H2O Energy Flow, structured bottled water, has also been introduced to the market and is now in selected retailers across the mid-west. Extreme Kleaner is the main banner on the machine to be driven by Vigh.
“It is a great opportunity to be able to return to our roots and bring our technology with us,” commented Samuel K. Burlum, CEO and President of Extreme Energy Solutions, and author of “Life in the Green Lane-in Pursuit of the American Dream,” “Tommy is a great driver and we needed to be able to work with someone whom does not mind dedicating their skill sets in aiding in our research and development on and off the track.” Burlum once ran full seasons in 2008 and 2009 at the Hard Clay, in the Street Stock Division.
“It’s important we have a tie to racing for many automotive innovations have been tested and proven at the track before they are made a stock component on production model vehicle,” Sam Burlum continued.”
“Having Tommy as our premier driver choice was an easy decision; he has been able to prove he can compete with aged equipment, and has been able to rack up a series of wins over time at various tracks. Fans love him as he is a great spokesperson for the sport. It will be great to see what he can do with some new equipment at his disposal.”
Tommy Vigh Jr., hails from Otisville, New York, and currently has 12 career wins that span time in the cockpit of Street Stocks, Pro Stocks, and now Sportsman Modified stock cars. His first race was in the Street Stock Division, where, after his 7th time in the car won his first race.

“Racing is just as important to our marketing efforts as it is to our research and development of our current and up and coming product lines. It reminds us how to stay competitive, furthering our vision for the next innovation to include into our Company’s product offerings. The racing community understands the concept of a work in progress, and is a perfect place for getting a feel for how consumers will respond to our new products and services,” Burlum concluded.
