CTech Manufacturing will serve as the presenting sponsor for this year’s Drag Illustrated ‘World Doorslammer Nationals,’ the company announced.
The event will be held March 6-8 at Orlando Speed World Dragway.
Organized, in part, to celebrate the 50th year of Pro Stock racing, Elite Motorsports Team Owner Richard Freeman announced a $50,000 purse going to the winners of each class earlier in the month. Since then, additional sponsors have come on board, which has swelled the total Pro Stock/Pro Mod class purse to $300,000.
“We’re excited about it because we’re throwing our hat in the ring to be a title sponsor in drag racing. We’ve done it in NASCAR, but never in drag racing. We saw what Wes (Buck, Drag Illustrated Founder and Editorial Director) and Richard (Freeman, Elite Motorsports team owner) had in mind and it just seemed like a great opportunity for our company,” said Dean Lee, CTech Manufacturing vice president.
