NHRA launches Nitro Generation sweepstakes
Thursday, February 09, 2012


If your idea of decorating your garage with a few new toys includes adding a brand-new Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 and a Harley- Davidson Seventy-Two motorcycle, our studies show that you might have the Nitro Gene.

NHRA announced one of its most lucrative sweepstakes in history. The NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes kicks off in grand style with the celebration of Nitro Generation, NHRA’s season-long tribute to the many families both on the track and in the stands who have made NHRA the world’s largest motorsports sanctioning body.

And given the momentous occasion of such an all-encompassing celebration, it is only fitting that the 2012 NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes is of the same scope and magnitude.  

Beginning Feb. 9, the start of the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series season with the 52nd running of the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals presented by Super Start Batteries at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, fans can enter to win the NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes by logging on to NHRA.com, by visiting the official voting area on NHRA’s Facebook page, or at kiosks that will be set up at every national event track during the 23-race season. Entries close at midnight ET on Dec. 7; winners will be announced after Dec. 18. Residents of the United States/Washington, D.C., who are at least 18 years old can enter the 2012 NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes.

The grand prize in the 2012 NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes is the ultimate toy combination for a fan who just might have the Nitro Gene: a '12 Ford Harley-Davidson F-150 and a '12 Harley-Davidson Seventy-Two motorcycle. Combined, the grand prize has a total value of nearly $60,000. 

In addition to the grand prize, NHRA will award other winners during the NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes. First prize is a 55-inch Samsung LED 7000 Series Smart TV from BrandSource. Five second-place winners will be awarded a Traxxas E-Revo Brushless 65-mph R/C Monster Truck. Third prize is a set of four tires courtesy of Service Central Racing, and five fourth-place winners will receive a Traxxas Boss 302 VXL 50-mph R/C car.  

“What better way to celebrate Nitro Generation than with a sweepstakes to bring together NHRA partners with deep roots in the sport,” said Gary Darcy, NHRA senior vice president sales and marketing. “Ford, Harley-Davidson, BrandSource, Traxxas, and Service Central are sponsors that all embody the Americana lifestyle and our love affair with not only the automobile, but going fast, something NHRA does better than anyone.”

The NHRA Nitro Generation Sweepstakes is just one of the many activities around the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series season, which will celebrate Nitro Generation. Nitro Generation is a celebration of the generations of fans and racers who have across many generations shared their love of NHRA with their families and friends.

Fans wanting a chance to win can sign up while attending one of the 23 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events around the country at easy-to-find kiosks in the world-famous open pits in front of the NitroMall or through conventional paper sign-ups in front of the Full Throttle display or anytime by logging on to NHRA.com or NHRA’s Facebook page.
