CONCORD, N.C. – Pep Boys, a leading automotive aftermarket service and retail chain, will be the title sponsor of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series’ Pep Boys NHRA Carolina Nationals Sept. 12-14 at North Carolina’s zMAX Dragway.
The business partnership, constructed by Optimum Sports, is the first between Pep Boys and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“There are a lot of reasons this is a great partnership and we’re proud to bring Pep Boys on board for one of our most action-packed events of the season,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“Customers of Pep Boys and guests of Charlotte Motor Speedway are serious automotive enthusiasts, and know exactly where to go for the parts to fix up their own vehicles, or when they want to see the fastest accelerating machines on the planet at the premier drag racing facility on the circuit.”
The zMAX race is the first of six in NHRA’s playoffs.
