Two past winners will carry local sponsorship on their cars at the 30th annual NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway.
Don Schumacher Racing’s Spencer Massey will carry the colors of ODYSSEY® Battery. EnerSys®, the manufacturer of ODYSSEY® batteries, is headquartered in Reading, Pa.
Massey won the 2011 edition of the NHRA Nationals in the Top Fuel Dragster category and is in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship.
In the Funny Car ranks, Micro Strategies, an award-winning technology company, will sponsor two-time NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series champion Tony Pedregon at the NHRA Nationals. Pedregon won the 2005 Funny Car final at MGR’s NHRA Nationals in 2005.
Micro Strategies is located in Denville, N.J., with an office in Malvern, Pa., just 31 miles from MGR.
“Being a drag racer myself, it’s a natural progression for Micro Strategies to team up with Tony, who is a great representative of the sport,” said Anthony Bongiovanni, President and CEO of Micro Strategies. “Drag racing has helped us engage current and potential customers. They love the speed, power and technology that surrounds NHRA drag racing. Our sponsorship serves as unique, high-impact platform to showcase Micro Strategies’ multitude of business solutions.”
