Once again all official NMCA & NMCA WEST class winners will be eligible to receive an NHRA “Wally” at each of the Aerospace Components Unleashed events contested at NHRA- sanctioned facilities. NMCA & NMCA WEST series champions will receive championship Wallys at the season ending awards ceremonies in Indianapolis, Indiana and Torrance, California courtesy of the Aerospace Components NHRA Unleashed program.

Aerospace Components will continue to sponsor NHRA Unleashed, providing added benefits to the NMCA Flowmaster event series, which includes more than $3.1 million purse and cash contingencies for all nine events. “We are honored to be a 2013 major sponsor of NMCA & NMCA WEST, which will both feature NHRA Unleashed," says Kim Kussy, of Aerospace Components Inc. "We look forward to working alongside the NMCA & NMCA WEST teams and their great family of racers."

“We appreciate the NHRA’s interest in reaching out to the growing heads-up and index drag racing market. NMCA & NMCA WEST welcome the opportunity to work directly with NHRA to carry on their support for heads-up and index drag racing,” said Charlie Harmon, president of ProMedia Events. “Over the years, NHRA has developed some amazing resources and all of us here at the NMCA & NMCA WEST are thrilled to have the continued support of the NHRA. The multi-year support of Aerospace NHRA Unleashed series demonstrates there is no doubt that NHRA is continuing their long-standing commitment to sportsman drag racing everywhere.”

By combining resources, NHRA, NMCA & NMCA WEST will provide an opportunity for racers to take advantage of both organizations’ many benefits and services from coast to coast. The same opportunities can be extended to sponsors providing the opportunity to reach out to a much broader group of participants and fans alike.

ProMedia has been the leader in street-legal events and publishing since 1999, the first year of the NMRA Ford Nationals and Race Pages magazine. Fastest Street Car (FSC) was introduced in 2001 and ProMedia purchased the NMCA in 2003, quickly turning it into the number one all-domestic street-legal muscle car series in the U.S. NMCA WEST was introduced in 2012 and quickly became the #1 street-legal drag racing series on the west coast. Today NMCA & NMCA WEST have the most fans, racers, sponsors, and contingency support in the hugely popular muscle car segment. All NMCA & NMCA WEST events include awesome heads-up street-legal drag racing, giant manufacturers midways and swap meets, 300+ mph jet cars, burnout contests, and much more!
