Perfectly Strange Award to provide bonus cash opportunity for five NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series categories.

GLENDORA, Calif. (Nov. 13, 2002) - Strange Engineering has signed a three-year agreement with the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) to present the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award to competitors in five NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series categories.

The NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award will provide a $250 bonus to the first racer in Stock, Super Stock, Super Gas, Super Comp and Super Street who wins an elimination round by running dead-on their dial-in or index during any of the 23 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series national events.

"We realize every race car has a product from Strange Engineering," said Jeff Stange, owner of Strange Engineering. "Since we cannot pay contingency for every product we offer, the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award program is our way of saying thanks to all racers for over 40 plus years of success."

Drivers in the five NHRA sportsman categories become eligible for the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award by displaying the official program decals on their race cars for a chance at their share of $5,750.

Strange Engineering is offering a prize fund of $26,000 for the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award. The company will double the award bonus at all events if a qualified racer wins while running either of Strange Engineering's NHRA contingency products and required decals, bringing the maximum total payout for the program to $52,000.

Should no racer meet the criteria to claim the NHRA Perfectly Strange Performance Award at a specific national event, the bonus cash will roll over to the next race.

Strange Engeineering, with headquarters in Morton Grove, Ill., is a worldwide leader in manufacturing quality driveline and suspension products.
