Racing Electronics, the worldwide leader in providing radio communications products to the motorsports industry, has renewed its official sponsorship as the official radio communications provider of NHRA.
For two decades, Racing Electronics has been the official radio communications sponsor of the world's largest motorsports sanctioning body, providing handheld radios, headsets, mobile units, ancillary products, base radios, antennas, and on-site setup and support for NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events, NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events, NHRA's owned and operated facilities, and broadcasting.
"Racing Electronics has been a long-standing official sponsor of NHRA, providing a much-needed service to the league, the race teams, and our fans," said Gary Darcy, NHRA senior vice president of sales and marketing. "This agreement ensures Racing Electronics will continue its involvement in the sport for years to come."
In addition, Racing Electronics has a major presence at the NHRA Manufacturers Midway at NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events, providing on-site sales, rentals, and service for scanners, headsets, and communication needs for NHRA race teams and fans.
"Since 2004, we have valued our official sponsorship with NHRA," said Bruce Silver, president and CEO of Racing Electronics. "Because of our success in the sport, it was a logical decision to renew our agreement early. Moving forward, we intend to extend our relationship with the teams and the fans with our newly launched scannerrental program."
Racing Electronics has been in the racing industry for 24 years. What began as a hobby in 1988 has grown to become the world leader in race communications. Racing Electronics is a manufacturer and supplier of a complete line of race communication products and accessories, providing its customers two-way radios, scanners, headphones, and headsets as well as a complete selection of accessories and sportswear and a guide listing the year's races and scanner frequencies for specific events.
