Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels Continues NMCA Radial Wars Class Sponsorship

Mickey Thompson has sponsored the heads-up Radial Wars class since its inception in 2014.

Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels has renewed its sponsorship commitment to the National Muscle Car Association (NMCA), the oldest domestic vehicle drag racing series in America. Mickey Thompson has sponsored the heads-up Radial Wars class since its inception in 2014. In addition, the company will be offering on-site trackside support at most NMCA events and contingency awards to all drivers competing in Pro, Sportsmen and various special event classes.

“We are proud to continue our long history of support for the NMCA and the Radial Wars class,” said Ken Warner, vice president of marketing for Mickey Thompson Tires & Wheels. “Offering trackside support and rewarding drivers through our contingency program is one of the ways that we live up to the legendary Mickey Thompson’s mantra to ‘Stand on the Gas.'”

The 2017 NMCA season began March 9 when Muscle Car Mayhem took over the Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida. NMCA racers competed for the largest all-cash contingency program available in domestic street-legal drag racing, featuring payouts totaling more than $3.5 million.
