Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals to celebrate 25th anniversary

It's that time of year again: time for Mopar to headline one of summer's most high-flying events at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals, scheduled this year for July 16-18.

The 2004 Mopar Mile-High Nationals marks the silver anniversary of a national NHRA event at Bandimere. Since 1979, the picturesque facility in Morrison, Colo. has played host to nitro-burning Top Fuel and Funny Cars and hard-core Pro Stock vehicles. Pro Stock motorcycles have since been added to the schedule.

Mopar has been on-board for this NHRA POWERade event near Denver since 1989, making it the longest running sponsor of a national NHRA event.

In addition to the exciting on-track action scheduled this year, the third annual Mopar Big Block Party will take the streets of downtown Golden, Colo., by storm on Thursday evening, July 15. Team Mopar drivers will be on hand to sign autographs, and there will be an assortment of culinary delights to fill drag racing fans' bellies. Capping off the evening will be a performance by platinum-selling rock group the 10,000 Maniacs. Tickets for the Mopar Big Block Party will be available on-site in Golden the day of the event, or stay tuned to moparspeed.com in the coming weeks for more details.

Earlier this summer, Bandimere hosted the inaugural Mopar Mountain Madness event. This NHRA Summit Sport Compact series event opened a new chapter in the relationship between Mopar and Bandimere Speedway. True to form, Mopar driver Scott Mohler captured the All Motor class trophy with a fine piece of driving, bringing home the hardware for his sponsor.

Tickets for the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals are still available. Visit Bandimere's Web site or call (800) 664-UWIN.

The staff at Mopar Speed would like to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July holiday. While you're celebrating the United States' birthday this weekend, be sure to talk with your fellow Mopar fans about attending the 25th annual Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals.

Pro Stock driver Larry Morgan will enter the Mopar Mile-High Nationals leading Team Mopar drivers in the point standings. Our spies tell us that Morgan was one of the front runners Pro Stock competitors during testing at Bandimere Speedway this week.

Mopar also carries associate sponsorship on two record-holding Dodge Funny Cars from the Don Schumacher Racing stable.

Mopar has a lot in store for the 25th running of the Mile-High Nats. Stay tuned to moparspeed.com for more.
