Aerospace Components will continue to sponsor NHRA Unleashed, providing added benefits to both Flowmaster-sponsored NMCA and NMCA WEST event series and the Chevy High Performance Nationals, which include more than $3.5 million purse and cash contingencies for all eleven events. “We are honored to be a 2013 major sponsor of NMCA, NMCA WEST, and the Chevy High Performance Nationals, which will all feature NHRA Unleashed,” says Kim Kussy, Vice President of Aerospace Components, Inc.  “We look forward to working alongside the event teams and their great family of racers.”

“We appreciate the NHRA’s interest in reaching out to the growing heads-up and index drag racing market.  NMCA, NMCA WEST, and the Chevy High Performance Nationals welcome the opportunity to work directly with NHRA to carry on their support for heads-up and index drag racing,” said Charlie Harmon, president of ProMedia Events. “Over the years, NHRA has developed some amazing resources and all of us here at the NMCA, NMCA WEST, and the Chevy High Performance Nationals are thrilled to have the continued support of the NHRA.  The multi-year support of Aerospace NHRA Unleashed series demonstrates there is no doubt that NHRA is continuing their long-standing commitment to sportsman drag racing everywhere.”

By combining resources, NHRA, NMCA, NMCA WEST, and the Chevy High Performance Nationals will provide an opportunity for racers to take advantage of both organizations’ many benefits and services from coast to coast.   The same opportunities can be extended to sponsors providing the opportunity to reach out to a much broader group of participants and fans alike.
