Sunset Racecraft has been a strong supporter of NHRA sportsman drag racing for the past two decades. The Lubbock, TX based company is the only engine builder posting NHRA contingency awards to sportsman competitors; the company has been a major NHRA contingency sponsor since 2010. Sunset Racecraft played an instrumental role in bringing the Top Dragster and Top Sportsman categories into NHRA Lucas Oil Series competition nearly a decade ago, and have been a huge proponent of both categories ever since. So it’s no surprise that the premier engine builder in sportsman drag racing has signed with the NHRA South Central Division as the Top Dragster class sponsor for the 2012 season.
“We’re delighted to support the Top Dragster racers of Division 4,” said Sunset Racecraft’s Tracy Dennis in a recent statement. “The South Central Division is our home, and the Top Dragster category is the class of choice for many of our customers. It’s a natural tie in that will be good for everyone involved.”
The sponsorship is an extension of Sunset Racecraft’s commitment to the quickest and fastest classes in sportsman drag racing: Top Dragster and Top Sportsman. Sunset was the sponsor of the first Division 4 Top Sportsman program back in 2003, and were key players in the division adding a Top Dragster class a year later. Sunset also stepped up to the plate in Division 7 as the title sponsor of their Top Sportsman category at its inception.
“NHRA sportsman racing is our bread and butter,” emphasized Dennis. “Sportsman racers across the country support our business, so it’s only natural for Sunset Racecraft to continue to find ways to support those racers.”
Sunset Racecraft’s various lines of competition engines have proven successful in multiple sportsman categories. Their familiar line of competition engines, ranging from the Warrior Series of reliable, low budget motors, up to the Asshauler and Nitrous Series of quality big cubic inch, high horsepower engines have long been the choice of successful competitors throughout the NHRA sportsman ranks.
Sunset Racecraft is proud to serve its NHRA customers with a full service support trailer that is on hand at many Lucas Oil Division Series events and Full Throttle Series national events throughout the country.
