Performance parts retailer Speed City has officially announced its commitment to a three-race Nitro Funny Car program in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Speed City has joined with international OEM belt manufacturer, Mitsuboshi Belting Ltd., as part of a research and development program partnering with Mitsuboshi’s US division, MBL USA, throughout the remainder of this season.
The Speed City NHRA campaign will debut Oct. 3-5, at the NHRA Nationals in Reading, PA, with Top Alcohol Funny Car veteran John Bojec making his professional racing debut. The Speed City team has also enlisted the talents of championship-winning crew chief Johnny West.
Bojec and West will lead the Speed City team as they make their season debut at the NHRA Nationals in Reading, PA. No stranger to Maple Grove Raceway, Bojec is a former Top Alcohol Funny Car Event Winner at this track. The team than move on to the Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas, NV (Oct. 30 – Nov. 2), before wrapping-up the 2014 race season at the 50th Annual Auto Club Finals in Pomona, CA (Nov. 13-16).
“The excitement surrounding this team right now is impressive. We have momentum to make a strong debut in Reading and we plan to keep it going right on through to Pomona,” Bojec said. “We are also very excited to be partnering with MBL (USA) as part of their research and development of the next generation of blower belt technology.”
Gaining momentum, Speed City will also be debuting CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Motor Oils, Burton Scot Contracting, Hedman Hedders, and RacingJunk.com as part of the team’s expanding marketing partnerships.
