Only five racers have ever crossed the 200 mph threshold in the history of NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle racing.
The promotion’s grand prize will be a trip for the winner and a guest to the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals April 26-28 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The renewal, a three-year agreement, includes an elevated level of branding as well as a deeper product relationship. All DSR teams will be running on DiamondFIRE racing spark plugs as well as the company’s new DiamondFIRE Racing Spark Plug Wires, a low Ohm wire specially designed for nitro and pro mod racing applications.
O’Neal has used NGK racing spark plugs in his 1999 Monte Carlo 632 Big Block Chevy engine with three-stage nitrous for the past five years and now O’Neal will look to use NTK engine sensors in a new race car. NTK is a member of the NGK Spark Plugs family of brands.
The multi-year agreement gives NGK Spark Plugs top billing for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series’ original four-wide fracas.
With the addition of the Carolina Nationals, DENSO is serving as Smith’s lead sponsor for a total of five weekend events in the 2017 Mello Yello series.
