SUMMITRACING.COM NHRA NATIONALS
Funny Car driver to appear at Vegas-area retailer on behalf of NHRA title sponsor
ATLANTA (March 26, 2012)—With back-to-back event wins in Phoenix and Gainesville this season, Funny Car driver Robert Hight is hoping to keep his hot streak going during this weekend’s SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals. Fans will have the opportunity to meet Hight the day before the 13th annual race gets under way at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, during an appearance on behalf of NHRA title sponsor Full Throttle Energy Drink.
On Thursday, the driver of the Auto Club Ford Mustang for John Force Racing, who also is the defending event winner from the 2011 race, will sign autographs and greet fans from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at the Terrible Herbst located at 4070 S. Arville Street in Las Vegas. The event will include free samples of Full Throttle Energy Drink, which will be distributed by brand ambassadors from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
“I am looking forward to spending some time with our great NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series fans on Thursday night,” said Hight, who currently is in second place, only seven points behind teammate Mike Neff, in the Funny Car points standings.
“My Auto Club team is off to a great start with two wins in a row, and I am looking for No. 3 in Las Vegas. I love racing at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and there is no better way to start the race weekend than by supporting our series sponsor Full Throttle Energy Drink.”
Fans attending this weekend’s SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals also are encouraged to stop by the Full Throttle Energy Drink display, located near the entrance to Nitro Alley, for the ultimate race-day experience.
