Check our what our WAR event sponsors have to say below–
Matt Irvine of Lucas Oil Products: “Our relationship with RPM Magazine and the sport of drag racing goes back to the very beginnings of Lucas Oil. Fans of the sport ourselves the partnership seems very natural and we have had our expectations exceeded with RPM events throughout the years. The RPM teams works very hard to bring extreme value for your entertainment dollar. This year’s line up is no different and we look forward to interacting with all of the fans at the events this summer!”
Mike Abney of Nitrous Express: “Many of our customers are planning to attend these races so supporting the Nitrous Nationals Nitrous Outlaw class is a great way to connect with the racers that use NX nitrous systems, as well as see the awesome racing that the RPM events and these tracks are known for.”
Chris Nugteren of LenTech Automatics: “At Lentech Automatics we are looking forward to the War in the North! We’re proud to be on board with RPM to present this event and showcase the wildest heads up drag racing anywhere. RPM’s event will put us right were the action is! Be sure to visit us on the vendors midway!”
Patrick James at Pro Systems: “At Pro Systems we support racing and are very excited about supporting the Real Street Outlaw class at this race. The fine folks at RPM Magazine always know how to get the word out on an event, so we know the race will be a big deal. This should certainly draw out a lot of vehicles that we build products for and the two WAR events will give them not only a place to race, but also exciting events to watch as a spectator.”
Jay Misener, Owner of Misener Motorsports: “We are extremely excited to be a part of this great event as a Racer, Sponsor and Vendor. It should really give us the opportunity to see a lot of existing customers and meet some new ones.”
Ian Hill of Ian Hill Racing: “I am a huge fan of doorslammer and street car class racing and it’s no secret that St. Thomas Raceway Park is THE place to race with its park-like pit space setting and family run atmosphere. My race team and I are very excited to be giving our support to a great event through our associate sponsors Eshine.ca and Fralick Construction. It is the efforts of St. Thomas Raceway Park and team at RPM that make the difference in where we choose to race and show our support, we are just excited to be part of it! So excited that we have also registered one of cars for the Real Street Showdown at the WAR By The SHORE!” Chris Mochrie, Owner, WASP Cams: “We are really excited to attend the RPM EXTREME WAR EVENT 2015 in St. Thomas. Our products go hand in hand with the Drag Racing lifestyle. WASP Cam’s motto from day one has been PROVE IT, and that directly applies to the War In The North. RPM puts on a great show and we are happy to be a part of it.”
Scott Guiler, Baldor Electric, “I’d like to see this class succeed in Northeast Ohio – it’s the ultimate expression of the muscle car and the fastest class where you see stock bodies and small tires in stock wheel wells. Northeast Ohio has a storied history of fast muscle cars from Akron to Cleveland to Youngstown, the premier performance products supplier in the country (Summit Racing) and hundreds of cruises full of muscle cars on any given summer night”.
Carl Rossler, Rossler Transmissions, “Rossler Transmissions is very excited about the new 4.80 class. Racing heads up is one of the most exciting things you can do in a drag car-this is the way drag racing started. There are a lot of fast cars that only race in bracket classes where the cars leave the starting line at two separate timing intervals and they have to hit the brakes to win a race, it’s just not natural. If you never tried heads up racing you are truly missing out on the best day at the racetrack you will ever have. Spectators will really appreciate the effort that you, your family and crew members have put into your racing program…Be a car rock star!”
Steve Becker, Harland Sharp, “Harland Sharp is proud to announce their participation in RPM Magazine’s War Events – “WAR IN THE NORTH” JULY 3 – 5th at St. Thomas Raceway Park and “WAR BY THE SHORE” July 25th at Thompson Raceway Park! As the presenters of the Real Street Showdown and the Real Street Outlaw Classes, we here at Harland Sharp are excited to see what the racers bring to the table in the almost no rules showdowns! Knowing what a great racer-oriented magazine RPM is, we at Harland Sharp felt that partnering with them on this event was simply a must! With the World’s greatest Street/Strip magazine and the USA’s most durable roller rocker arms, The “War Events” promise to be awe inspiring events filled with none other than the fastest and baddest cars the USA and Canada have to offer!
