What a thrill to see Mane ‘n Tail on the hood of a race car again, speeding down the track. Can’t wait to be there!”


Come NASCAR fans one and all to “Discover the Secret” once again with the Renewed partnership between Derrike Cope/Premium Motorsports and Mane ‘n Tail.


“Looking forward to taking a step back in time and partnering with Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo again as I did when I was with Bobby Allison in the 90’s. Those were productive years and I am excited to see that color scheme on the track,” Cope exclaims.
