GLENDORA, Calif. -- David Doyel, formerly director of performance aftermarket marketing at the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), has been named director of development for the NHRA Motorsports Museum at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif. In his new position, Doyel will be responsible for fundraising efforts, as well as developing and coordinating programs throughout the automotive aftermarket to encourage their involvement with the museum.
"David will bring his extensive experience and knowledge of working with the performance aftermarket industry to bear on behalf of the fundraising initiatives at the NHRA Motorsports Museum," said Peter Clifford, senior vice president of business operations at NHRA and a member of the NHRA Motorsports Museum board.
"I look forward to working with companies interested in helping NHRA maintain the museum and provide a showcase to share our heritage for years to come," said Doyel. "The NHRA Motorsports Museum already enjoys a proven, successful track record of events, tailor-made functions and exposure opportunities for corporate America. I intend to build on that success."
The NHRA Motorsports Museum was established in 1998 and has on display rare and unique elements of the history of drag racing and related activities. Past and present race cars grace the museum floor, alongside memorabilia and private collections showcasing 50 years of NHRA Drag Racing at all levels.
An integral component of the museum is the Automobile Club of Southern California's Education Center. The center provides students and educators with a hands-on experience, and presents many career opportunities surrounding motorsports. The NHRA Motorsports Museum is open to the public.
