The Dodge brand is fired up for the 2019 race season, bringing the 2018 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show right to enthusiasts and race fans as official sponsor of NHRA livestream coverage from the annual event, scheduled for December 6-8 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. “NHRA on Fox – Powered by Dodge” will offer three full days of livestream coverage from the 2018 PRI Show, available for viewing at www.NHRA.com.
“We are excited to partner with Dodge to livestream our NHRA on FOX studio from the PRI Show,” said Brad Gerber, NHRA vice president of sales and chief development officer. “Everyone is going to enjoy seeing the Dodge Challenger 1320 and the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak by our booth. These impressive automobiles are sure to be a crowd pleaser.”
Mopar Dodge Top Fuel driver Leah Pritchett and Mopar Express Lane Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Funny Car driver Matt Hagan will stop by to participate in livestream interviews with Tony Pedregon and John Kernan from the “NHRA on Fox – Powered by Dodge” broadcast team. Hagan and Pritchett will also take part in autograph sessions at the NHRA display, booth #7032, on Thursday, December 6.
In addition to the livestream sponsorship, Dodge will also display a number drag-race-themed vehicles next to the NHRA exhibit at PRI. Display vehicles will include a historic “Direct Connection”-themed Plymouth Duster “package” car, showcasing the Dodge and Mopar brands’ tradition of factory-built race vehicles designed strictly for the drag strip, as well as a modern-day version of the “package car,” the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. Also featured will be the drag-oriented, street-legal 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, scheduled to begin arriving in dealerships in the first quarter of 2019.
The “Drag Illustrated After Hours Powered by Dodge” event is returning on Thursday evening, December 6, to celebrate the opening day of the PRI Show.
Now in its fifth year, “Drag Illustrated After Hours Powered by Dodge” gives attendees the chance to meet with racers, leaders and insiders from the drag racing community. Passes for the Dodge-sponsored after party will be available for free on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, December 6 at the Drag Illustrated booth (#4450).
