The Hot Rod Red painted flames on the hood of the Jim Dunn Racing Funny Car at this weekend’s NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol and next weekend at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk represent the team’s sponsor, Blaze Exhaust Probes.
A key element used in drag racing to measure exhaust temperatures, Blaze Technical Services helps the Dunns and many other teams achieve 320-mph runs through the monitoring of engine performance.
Jim Dunn Racing and driver Jim Campbell are coming off back to back races in Chicago and Topeka where they ran well in qualifying and lost close races during elimination rounds on Sunday. The single-car, family-run team, appreciates support from major industry manufacturers like Blaze.
“We’ve used Blaze exhaust probes in our Funny Car for years and appreciate the support of our team and the sport of NHRA Drag Racing,” said Team Manager Jon Dunn. “Like many racing teams, we enjoy the Bristol race over Father’s Day Weekend, and the Norwalk race in the summer resort area. It’s great to have a sponsor located in northeastern Ohio that wants to be involved in the back-to-back events.”
Beyond racing exhaust probes, Blaze manufactures devices to monitor seeds, plants, and other organics that help the agriculture industry reach maximum performance crop yields and also makes monitoring devices to help process consumer goods that meet standards in the food and beverage industry.
