In 2009 and 2010, Vitelity Communications (News - Alert) was honored with the IT Expo’s most innovative new product award.

“The NHRA is known for their exciting, fast-paced events with some of the most exciting racing in motorsports,” said Scott Navratil, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Vitelity Communications. “We were looking for a team that was dynamic, well-recognized, and had a history of winning. The Steve Johnson Racing Team met those requirements and we believe they will help promote our brand nationwide.”

The fact that we have been chosen to help promote this kind of phone service, as well as many other services, says a lot about NHRA Full Throttle drag racing and, specifically, our team. It’s going to be so rewarding telling business owners about Vitelity and this unique way to reduce company expenses.”
