FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TEAM WILKERSON TO HOST NHRA MEMBER HOSPITALITY IN POMONA
POMONA, Calif. (November 10, 2015) -- The National Hot Rod Association and Team Wilkerson Racing have joined forces to create a new one-of-a-kind experience for NHRA members at this weekend's NHRA Auto Club Finals in Pomona, by bringing first-class hospitality and entertainment directly to NHRA members in the Team Wilkerson pit area.
Long known for successfully entertaining important guests and clients from Levi, Ray & Shoup at tracks on the NHRA Mello Yello tour, Team Wilk will this weekend shift gears by allowing NHRA to place a hospitality venue directly next to the working pit area, providing an unprecedented view and unparalleled access to the team and its LRS Funny Car.
No reservations are needed and the experience will be open to any NHRA member who shows a valid membership card at the door, as well as to any current participants in the NHRA Summit Racing Equipment Junior Drag Racing League. NHRA and Team Wilkerson personnel will be present to host attendees, and Tim Wilkerson will mingle and sign autographs as often as his busy tuning and driving responsibilities allow. NHRA members will be welcomed on a space-available basis.
"NHRA watches what we and a lot of other teams do, in terms of making any given race a really special experience for our important sponsor guests, and they came to us to see if we'd be interested in doing the same thing for NHRA members," Wilk said. "I think this is a really great idea, because most fans walk by the various hospitality set-ups and wish they could get that up-close view in such a VIP environment. We jumped at the chance to do this.
"And if any fans want to take part who aren't current NHRA members, it's easy for them to sign up for a new membership or renew their old one right there at the track and take care of that. All they have to do is visit the National Dragster trailer right by our pit and they can sign up there. This is a great chance for folks who are longtime loyal NHRA fans to have a corporate-style hospitality experience. We're looking forward to having them with us right next to our pit."
The hospitality area will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 7:30 a.m to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. In addition, at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday a drawing will be held to select the NHRA Member of the Race, who will receive instant seat upgrades for them and one guest, an introduction on-stage during opening ceremonies, a ride in the Mello Yello Express, and access to the Winner's Circle after the race.
