On Sept. 20, 2016 Dodge has signed an agreement to become the title rights sponsor of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event at Maple Grove Raceway in Pennsylvania.
The 32nd annual Dodge NHRA Nationals will be held Sept. 29-Oct. 3 and is the third race in the six-race NHRA Countdown to the Championship. The track is traditionally one of the quickest on the NHRA circuit and has been the site of several national records through the years.
“The Dodge NHRA Nationals in the Keystone state is an integral part of the championship hunt,” said Brad Gerber, NHRA vice president and chief development officer. “We are pleased to have Dodge involved with the event and will build upon their relationships in the sport of NHRA Drag Racing.”
The title rights sponsorship builds upon the alliance with the NHRA and Dodge, the American performance brand of FCA US LLC. Another FCA brand, Mopar, is the title rights sponsor of the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals, the event held annually in Denver. Dodge is also the manufacturer of choice for world champions Matt Hagan in Funny Car, as well as Jeg Coughlin Jr. and Erica Enders in Pro Stock. The manufacturer is also the preferred car make for many racers in the Funny Car, Pro Stock and Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series competitors.
“Dodge has had a strong history in NHRA drag racing dating back to the early 1960s,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands – Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat – FCA North America. “Our brand is rooted in performance, and our role as title sponsor at Maple Grove Raceway provides a direct connection with the NHRA fans who take Dodge performance from the strip to the street. In recent years, successful Mopar race teams have campaigned Dodge-branded vehicles in the Funny Car and Pro Stock classes, but now with the launch of the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak fielded by Joe Welch Racing in NHRA Factory Stock, Dodge and Mopar have taken their close collaboration to the next level.”
