TEAM MOPAR NHRA PRO STOCK FIELD DEEP FOR DENVER EVENT

Center Line, Mich. -- When qualifying for the 27th Annual Mopar Mile-High Nationals begins on Friday, July 14, Team Mopar will have one of the deepest fields in the series' recent events. Of the 23 pre-entries posted for the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Series event at Bandimere Speedway, nine will be propelled by Mopar/HEMI power.

"The resurgence of HEMI power in the NHRA Pro Stock series has led to the record number of teams competing under the Mopar umbrella," said Kevin Miller, Senior Manager, Mopar Brand Performance & Motorsports. "Having earned the No. 1 qualifier position three times in the last four events, we're very proud of the caliber of all of our teams. We're also pleased to welcome Erica Enders to the Don Schumacher Racing team, and we're extremely excited to see Gene Wilson drive the Scott Geoffrion tribute car in this year's Mopar Mile-High Nationals. We wish all of our competitors the best of luck in this week's event."

Team Mopar's entries include Don Schumacher Racing's Richie Stevens Jr., and Shaun Carlson, who will be joined by the recently signed Enders. A fourth Don Schumacher Racing entry will be piloted by Wilson. J&J Racing's Allen Johnson will look to keep his recent hot streak alive, along with privateer drivers Larry Morgan, V. Gaines, Max Naylor and Mike Thomas.

Entering this week's Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals, there are four Mopar drivers currently ranked in the Top-10 in NHRA POWERade Pro Stock points. Enders will head to Denver in seventh place, followed by Morgan in eighth. Johnson has come on strong of late to take over the ninth place ranking, with Gaines rounding out the Top-10. The tenth-place standing marks the first time in his career that Gaines has run in the Top-10 in series points.
