The NHRA West Central Division encourages all racers - from Jr. Dragster drivers all the way up to Top Alcohol Dragster competitors - to participate in the CineQuipt Video Contest. Videos can be of anything, from single race stories to season highlights and compilations. The winner of the contest will be awarded a GoPro Hero2 camera and accessories from CineQuipt as well as a ticket to the West Central Division awards ceremony, where the video will be used.
Entries can be submitted by emailing a link to Matt Levonas (firstname.lastname@example.org). The links to the entries will be posted periodically as received on the Division 5 website and Facebook page for viewing by the public.
CineQuipt is one of the top video equipment sales and rental suppliers in the Midwest, supplying gear and service to professionals since 1970. While most of its business is geared toward video professionals, CineQuipt also has cameras and the knowledge to help racers capture their car and experience at the track.
