SANTA ANA, CA -- The NMCA Edelbrock Drag
Racing Series, the #1 all-domestic muscle car
show, hosted a special Late-Model HEMI class at
the Atco, New Jersey, race. This class was designed
to attract late-model HEMI racers from around the
northeast to showcase the awesome performance of
these new muscle cars. Over 20 late-model HEMI
vehicles put on a great show for NMCA's fans and proved
why their segment of the performance market is red hot
and growing. Passionate late-model HEMI enthusiasts across
the U.S., with new 300's, Magnums, and Chargers, are spending
millions of dollars in performance street/strip upgrades every year.
"Following the huge success of our LSX Shootout in '07 that introduced LS
enthusiasts to NMCA events, we decided to create an event that would attract
late-model HEMI customers," said Charlie Harmon, president of the NMCA series.
"Promoters can no longer rest on their laurels and expect the pits to just fill up.
The NMCA continues to be aggressive and search out segments that are hot and
offer solid sales potential for our sponsors. The late-model HEMI segment brings
passionate, parts-buying consumers to NMCA events...and the best part, they put
on a show for our fans. We expect this segment to grow even stronger with the
release of the all-new '08 Challenger."
