Amalie Motor Oil has extended its title sponsorship of NHRA Championship Drag Racing’s traditional east coast opener in Gainesville, Fla., the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals, in a multi-year extension agreement.
One of the most legendary races on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series circuit, the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals is a destination race for fans and drivers alike. It also traditionally serves as the season opener for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Pro Stock Motorcycle category.
“Amalie Motor Oil is excited to announce the continuation of our title rights sponsorship of the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals,” said Rick Barkett, “We are fortunate to have one of the premier drag racing events in the world so close to our global headquarters in Tampa, Florida. The 50th anniversary Gatornationals this season was a huge success and we look forward to being an integral part of this great event for many more years.”
Amalie Motor Oil has been involved in NHRA drag racing across numerous platforms through its presence in NHRA’s contingency program as well as its sponsorship of drivers including Top Fuel pilot Terry McMillen. This renewal will continue to build upon the partnership and provides Amalie Motor Oil with opportunities to connect with NHRA fans including product placement, signage, interactive displays, media exposure and more.
“Amalie Motor Oil is a valued partner to NHRA Championship Drag Racing,” said Brad Gerber, NHRA vice president, and chief development officer. “We are extremely happy to continue our relationship with Amalie Motor Oil as the title sponsor for one of our largest, longest-running and most iconic events.”
