NHRA Announces Multi-Year Deal With Camping World
Camping World, the retailer of recreational vehicles (RVs), RV accessories, and RV-related services, has partnered with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) to become the sponsor of NHRA’s premier professional series, which will be known as the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.
“I look at NHRA and I see a growing and loyal fan base,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World. “NHRA recognizes the product it has in the sport of drag racing and its responsibility to serve its fans. We at Camping World look forward to this new relationship.”
The news follows NHRA's announcement that the sanctioning body filed a lawsuit against series sponsor Mello Yello and The Coca-Cola Company.
The sponsorship, which begins immediately, will be in full swing as the NHRA celebrates its 70th anniversary and Camping World celebrates its 55th year in 2021.
“Camping World has a strong history in motorsports, and we can’t wait to introduce them to the incredible action of NHRA’s 11,000-horsepower, 330-mph racing,” said NHRA President Glen Cromwell. Our fans, drivers, teams and partners are thrilled about the potential of this relationship as we welcome Camping World as a partner and entitlement sponsor for the NHRA and its premier series.”
