The NHRA has signed a multiyear agreement with Chevrolet, designating the legendary US vehicle manufacturer as the Official Truck of NHRA.
As the Official Truck of NHRA, Chevrolet will have a major on-site presence at all NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events. Most notably, the all-new Chevrolet Silverados and Suburbans will be used by the legendary NHRA Safety Safari presented by AAA for emergency response and track preparation. The dependability and capability of these trucks are paramount to the legendary safety team performing its trackside duties.
“Chevrolet is proud to partner with the series as the Official Truck of NHRA and are honored that our Silverados and Suburbans will be utilized by the NHRA Safety Safari,” said Jim Campbell, vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Our involvement in NHRA allows us to showcase the most dependable, longest-lasting trucks in America to our customers and fans and to fans of NHRA Drag Racing.”
The sponsorship increases Chevrolet’s involvement in NHRA Drag Racing. The Chevrolet Performance brand is the title sponsor for the world’s most prestigious drag race, the Chevrolet Performance US Nationals, held each Labor Day weekend near Indianapolis.
Additionally, several drivers race Chevrolet Camaros in the Pro Stock class, including Greg Anderson, Dave Connolly, Erica Enders-Stevens, Shane Gray, and Jason Line, and Chevrolet is the preferred choice of many Sportsman racers.
