JAMES DAY RETURNS TO NHRA NITRO FUNNY CAR RANKS FOR MILE HIGH NATIONALS
Diverse Nitro Pilot to Drive for John Lindsay in Denver
Denver, Colo. - James Day, the 32-year old diverse nitro pilot from Orange, Calif. will return to the NHRA Nitro Funny Car ranks behind the wheel of John Lindsay's "Impulse" Funny Car with the support of CleanBoost® PERFORMANCE MOTOR OILS at this year's Mopar Mile High NHRA Nationals to be contested at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colo July 23rd- 25th.
A second-generation drag racer growing up in the hot bed of the sport, Southern California, Day has worked his way from being a crew member for veteran Funny Car drivers Jack Wyatt, Jerry Toliver, Del Worsham, and Gary Densham to becoming one of the more diverse nitro-pilots in drag racing today. Recently Day has piloted the "LA HOOKER" and "Holy Toledo" Nostalgia Nitro Funny Cars and "The Foothill Flyer" Nostalgia Top Fuel Dragster. Day's last NHRA National Event appearance was behind the wheel of the DLS Motorsports Top Fuel Records sponsored flopper at the 2008 NHRA Winternationals and he is anxiously awaiting returning to the NHRA 'Big Show' driving for veteran owner John Lindsay.
"I can't begin to describe how excited I am to race at a quality facility like Bandimere Speedway with a great group of guys at John Lindsay Racing," noted Day, who works as an electrician during the work week. "We also would not be able to head out to "Thunder Mountain" without the support of Combustion Technologies USA and their CleanBoost® PERFORMANCE MOTOR OILS product line. We'll be using their fuel treatment in our truck, the METTLE ARMOR Racing Oil in the Funny Car, and clean everything with their new NANO-SHEEN all weekend. It's going to be a great weekend of racing in Denver and I am very appreciative to all those who have supported me over the years."
The race in Denver provides his marketing partners at Combustion Technologies USA with a chance to introduce their quality products to the tens of thousands of fans who will pack the Bandimere Speedway facility and the hundreds of thousands of loyal NHRA Drag Racing viewers on ESPN2.
"James Day is the man and we're very excited to fly the CleanBoost® colors on John Lindsay's "Impulse" Flopper during the Mopar Mile High NHRA Nationals," stated Tim Charlet, a licensed NHRA drag racer himself and Director of Sales and Marketing for Combustion Technologies USA (www.combustionusa.com). "We have had tremendous success with sponsoring Kristen Wootton and her A/Fuel Dragster in Division 4, and we felt the time and opportunity was perfect to make our NHRA Full Throttle Series debut in Denver. We are thrilled to support NHRA Drag Racing and help James Day live the dream of returning to the NHRA Nitro Funny Car ranks. Hopefully this event will be a platform for us to enter the NHRA with multiple teams on a full time basis in 2011."
