DRAG RACING: Grisdale Racing Products sponsors PMRA Best Appearing Car in 2006
DUNDAS, ON – The Pro Modified Racing Association (PMRA) is pleased to announce that Grisdale Racing Products is to sponsor the Best Appearing Car at each series event in 2006.
“Grisdale's focus is to further expand and service the needs of drag racing competitors, and hot rod and street machine enthusiasts,” explained Grisdale’s Drag Racing & Performance Sales Coordinator, Paul Polly.“ The Pro Modified Racing Association will help us with our goal. The series has high profile teams, they draw great crowds, and we are very excited about our involvement.”
With a strong and solid reputation in the auto racing and aftermarket industry, Grisdale Enterprises Inc., is a multi-dimensional company that has been faithfully serving its customers for 25 years. The Grisdale Racing Products Division is a one-stop supplier for high performance and hard-core racing components.
“The Grisdale Racing Products Best Appearing Car Award is great way for them to support the series and most important the teams,” said Tim Miller, Media Director of the PMRA. “We think it’s a great way for Grisdale’s to promote their drag race components.”
A complete line of racing products for the entry-level enthusiast to the full-time professional racer is available from Grisdale Racing Products. It carries a full line of fiberglass and aluminum racecar bodies, frame and suspension components, brake systems, wheels, tires, safety equipment (including Nomex suits), heat shielding materials, infra red pyrometers, and data acquisition products. Grisdale also specializes in driveline systems, on-board timing equipment, as well a full line of gauges, engine and ignition components.
Started late in 2004 and entering its second year of operation, the PMRA ran five events in 2005 at four Ontario, Quebec, and New York locations, with a different winner at each track. The PMRA will provide drag race fans the opportunity to see and hear popular Pro Modified racing in the class known as “the world’s fastest door slammers.”
At present, PMRA officials are negotiating with several eighth and quarter-mile tracks in Ontario, Quebec, Michigan and New York with the plan of presenting a six -event drag racing series in 2006.
The PMRA is a self-governing organization with its own set of technical and safety rules based on the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Pro Modified division. Cars in the PMRA capture the true spirit of hot rodding, and the class offers a widely diverse group of racecars with different types of 2000-horsepower engines propelling the cars down the quarter-mile in the 6.20-second range at 230 mph.
