The 2019 NHRA Mellow Yellow Drag Racing series with 24 sanctioned events officially started Feb. 7-10 at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals in Pomona, California. The E3 contingency program went into effect for the 50th Annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals that was held March 14-17 at Gainesville Raceway in Florida. This recent event brought together NHRA’s most beloved figures to celebrate and mark the culmination of the year-long Legends Tour.
E3 Vice President of Motorsports, Rob Fisher, commented, “E3 has had a long-standing relationship with NHRA and over the years this program has helped sell a lot of spark plugs at over 25,000 retail outlets. Now that we have a full line of racing plugs and ignition products, it was the right time to begin a comprehensive contingency program that targets the sportsman racer, who is the backbone of the NHRA. We are excited to kickoff this contingency program during such a momentous occasion as the 50th Annual Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals.”
