Happy 50th birthday, CRC Brakleen

If it sticks to brake parts and it’s not supposed to, chances are that CRC Brakleen can remove it–and it's been doing that for 50 years now.

That’s right, the iconic brake parts cleaner turns 50 this year, and CRC Industries is celebrating by launching “a variety of marketing activities and promotions,” as well as announcing title sponsorship of the CRC Brakleen 150 Camping World Truck Series race at Pocono Raceway later this month.

Launched all the way back in 1971, Brakleen has become one of the go-to cleaners to remove oil, brake dust and every other kind of grime from braking components, and now comes in eight different formulas in the United States. You can always find it in the GRM shop. 

So, what kind of favors has Brakleen done for you over the years?

I'm going to spray some across a lit candle on a cupcake to celebrate (outside of course)

Also, can we get JG a ride for the truck race? He has practice for the post race interview from GRMLive broadcast. He could practice on iracing before race weekend. It may be impossible to get done on such short notice for this year. But now I'll never be able to get the idea out of my head, somehow someway for one race we need to get JG into a camping world truck.
