Two words: Dan Pikarsky.
Three more words: Americana Car Culture.
Dan Pikarsky, creator and visionary of Americana Pro™ companies and Hot Wheels™ Americana Series™ Premium Car Care Products. He said, “Good ideas live and die everyday, sometimes in the time it takes to explain them. Knowing a good thing when it sees it, Mattel got on board with us at AmericanaPro in 2017 and Hot Wheels Americana Series Premium Car Care Products was born.”
Pikarsky is an entrepreneur, marketing expert and strategic businessman. He is responsible for elevating some of the greatest champions, products and people in motorsports and other ventures.
His resume reads like a “Who’s Who.” Projects in high-level marketing, sponsorship and business development, and has spent decades working with extraordinary names like Richard Petty Garage, LFR, Scott Speed and the team’s 95 car in the Sprint Cup Series… from NHRA to NASCAR, to name a few; and held marketing positions at major corporations such as Viacom and Galaxy Communications, and an impressive list of others throughout his career.
He knows how to spot a winning combination. In 2020, Hot Wheels Americana Series Premium Car Care Products became the Official Car Care Products of the F. I. A. European Championship-winning drag racing series team Lex Joon Racing for the Dodge NHRA Indy Nationals. Hot Wheels Americana Series Car Care branding was displayed on Lex Joon’s Top Fuel dragster promoting EPIC SHINE detailer.
Loves car shows and clubs…Pikarsky is devoted to supporting and participating in car shows and car clubs. Next time you hit a show, you might run into the Hot Wheels Americana Series Premium Car Care Products “show crew” who attend various events and provide product education and demonstrations.
Since his early days as a college student working with his grandfather in a collision repair shop and sharpening his racing skills, Pikarsky has been devout to “everything auto.” This passion fueled his pursuit to discover exactly what car enthusiasts were looking for and made history with the development of these pro-grade products. His focus, commitment to excellence and tenacity resulted in one of the most epic partnerships with Mattel Hot Wheels Car Care brand.
In the 1970’s Mattel Hot Wheels slogan was “Go with the Winner,” and today “It’s not the same without the Flame.” Similarly, AmericanaPRO + Dan Pikarsky + Hot Wheels Car Care Brand = Real winners who wouldn’t be the same without the flame.
