GLENDORA, Calif. – The NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series will race four-wide for the first time in class history at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals on April 28-30 at zMAX Dragway.

The growing NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series will get to experience the one-of-a-kind Four-Wide race for the first time, as four cars will go down the track at more than 250 mph at once.

“The NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series continues to show impressive growth and the chance to race at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals will provide even more excitement for the talented racers in the class and its fans,” said Graham Light, NHRA senior vice president of racing operations. “The Pro Mod class features tremendous drivers and thrilling side-by-side racing, and the added element of four-wide racing will showcase that even further.”

Racing at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals is part of the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series’ expansion from 10 races to 12 events, adding a race in Topeka, Kan., as well. The Pro Mod season opens on March 16-19 as part of the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, and the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals will be the third of 12 events.

“The anticipation and excitement of having four lanes, three different power-adder combinations, and clutch-equipped cars staging and leaving with converter-equipped drivelines, will be challenging for a driver and will be a truly a unique experience for the fan,” said Steve Matusek, who pilots the Aeromotive 1969 Camaro Pro Mod car, which he drove to a No. 5 finish in points last year. He is also the President of Aeromotive Inc., a major contingency sponsor with the NHRA. “Putting a 900 plus cubic-inch behemoth nitrous power plant next to both the popping and banging of turbos, and deep whine and ground-pounding tone of a supercharged combo will be difficult, but I know my teammate Danny Rowe and I are more than up for the challenge.”
