-Ashley Force Hood, John Force Discuss Upcoming Carolina Nationals, Four Wide Exhibition-
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (September 5, 2009) --- The public relations department of zMax Dragway led by Scoot Cooper and Adrian Parker took advantage of an open weekend on the Charlotte area sports scene and the marketing savvy of track owner Bruton Smith to fly a contingent of Charlotte media to the 55th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals today. The group comprised of five television stations including WBTV, WCNC, WSOC, WCCB, News 14 and Ron Green, reporter for the Charlotte Observer, spent time with a variety of NHRA drivers including Castrol GTX Ford Mustang driver Ashley Force Hood and Castrol GTX High Mileage Ford Mustang driver John Force.
“Coming to Charlotte and zMax Dragway is a big deal for us. NASCAR is so big in that area we are excited to bring the excitement of Full Throttle Drag Racing Series in a few weeks. I am looking forward to getting the Countdown to 1 started. Right now we are No. 3 in points and we are trying to move up closer to the top of the point standings,” said Force Hood.
Force Hood and Force talked up the excitement level associated with the 2nd annual NHRA Carolina Nationals, September 17-20, as the first race of the Countdown to 1 and the interest in the planned four wide exhibition run prior to the final round on Sunday, September 20th.
