Performance parts retailer Speed City has officially announced their commitment to a three race Nitro Funny Car program in the 2014 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. The Speed City NHRA campaign will debut at the NHRA Nationals in Reading, Pennsylvania October 3-5.
Speed City has joined with international OEM belt manufacturer, Mitsuboshi Belting Ltd., as part of a research and development program partnering with Mitsuboshi’s US division, MBL USA, throughout the three race events.
Gaining momentum, Speed City will also be debuting CAM2 Blue Blood Racing Motor Oils, Burton Scot Contracting, Hedman Hedders, and RacingJunk.com as part of the team’s expanding marketing partnerships.
Driving the 10,000hp Nitro Funny Car will be NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car Driver, John Bojec. This will be Bojec’s first event behind the wheel as he makes the transition into the professional nitro category. The Speed City team has also enlisted the talents of long-time championship winning Crew Chief, Johnny West.
“The excitement surrounding this team right now is impressive. We have momentum to make a strong debut in Reading and we plan to keep it going right on through to Pomona. We are also very excited to be partnering with MBL (USA) as part of their research and development of the next generation of blower belt technology” said Bojec.
Bojec and West will lead the Speed City team as they make their season debut at the NHRA Nationals in Reading, PA. No stranger to Maple Grove Raceway, Bojec is a former Top Alcohol Funny Car Event Winner at this track. The team will than move on to the Toyota Nationals in Las Vegas, NV (Oct. 30 - Nov. 2), before wrapping-up the 2014 race season at the 50th Annual Auto Club Finals in Pomona, CA (Nov. 13-16).
