NHRA: A 7,000 HP Thump in the Chest
We’re clearly into motorsports.
We’ve partnered with Michael Waltrip Racing on the pavement and Menzies Motorsports & Clint Bowyer Racing on the dirt. The only thing missing was the drag strip, so of course PEAK is thrilled to be the Official Antifreeze of NHRA.
If you’ve never been to an NHRA event, you’re missing out. It’s lightning-fast reflexes launched down the strip by 7,000 horsepower engines. The top fuel guys go from 0-100 MPH in under ONE second and endure almost five G’s - which, by the way, is just about what it’s like to be an astronaut launching the space shuttle.
When you’re in the stands, you feel every bit of the excitement as these monsters scream down the strip. It literally rattles your bones and it’s awesome.
NHRA events also have an open pit setup. This means you can get to the track early and walk the pits, check out the cars, see the crews in action and meet some of the friendliest professional drivers in motorsports.
If you make it out, be sure to say hello to TJ Zizzo, the pilot of the PEAK Motor Oil Top Fuel dragster. He’s a nice guy. So nice, in fact, that he’s volunteered to race with PEAK's 24 Hours of LeMons team. This means that you can enter for a chance to race with him at a track just outside of Chicago. Enter now!
We’ve also got a solid group of Sportsman Class guys out there - Check out our Motorsports section to get the whole lineup.
These guys are always on the road and rely on their rigs to get them to the races, so we’re proud to have BlueDEF as the Official Diesel Exhaust Fluid of the NHRA and Herculiner as the Official Bedliner of NHRA.
