INDIANAPOLIS – The Lescure Company has partnered with Jim Dunn Racing to serve as primary sponsor of the NHRA Funny Car driven by Jim Campbell in two upcoming NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events.
The Lescure Company Funny Car will make its debut this weekend at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas. The Lescure Company will also sponsor Jim Dunn Racing and Campbell at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Ga., on May 5-7.
The primary sponsorship agreement is an expansion of the previous relationship between Jim Dunn Racing and Lescure, a mechanical services company. The organization has been an associate sponsor of the Jim Dunn Racing Funny Car for more than 10 years.
The Lescure family is no stranger to the sport of drag racing, and got even more acquainted with the NHRA when the Melanoma Research Foundation recognized it with the Vision of Hope Award in 2011.
Beyond the mechanical services business, the Lescure’s provide education and awareness about Ocular Melanoma whenever possible through their charitable foundation www.acureinsight.org.
