Racers get ready to go for the biggest purse in drag racing history this weekend
GREENWICH, OHIO – Aug. 8, 2018: With more than three decades as the premier source for heat and sound issue solutions in street performance and racing, Thermo-Tec joins the list of sponsors for the Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod (WSOPM), the highly anticipated, invite-only drag race Friday and Saturday at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, CO.
The first-of-its-kind, winner-take-all event will feature the 32 of the best Pro Modified drivers and teams in the world. The champion will walk away with a $100,000 grand prize.
And with stakes that high, Thermo-Tec knew it had to get in on the action. As the original heat insulation company for the aftermarket industry, Thermo-Tec provides top heat control solutions for high-performance cars, from street to strip.
“Thermo-Tec understands how important it is to remain cool under demanding circumstances, which is exactly what these drivers are going to need to do to win the biggest purse in drag racing history,” said Nick Helms, sales director of the Ohio-based company. “We’re proud to partner with WSOPM to bring this exciting event to life.”
In addition to on-site support at WSOPM, Thermo-Tec is also offering fans a 20 percent discount on Thermo-Tec products by using the code WSOPM at checkout on www.thermotec.com. The offer is only valid Friday and Saturday.
“This is the greatest spectacle in drag racing, so partnering with top-quality companies like Thermo-Tec to bring the magic to our fans just makes sense, ” said Wes Buck, founder of the World Series of Pro Mod and publisher of Drag Illustrated. “By making the WSOPM an invite-only deal, by essentially ‘casting’ our field with colorful, energetic and competitive drivers, then drawing the first-round pairings a month ahead of time, we can build rivalries and develop a compelling story around the race. There is absolutely zero make-believe here. There’s no staged antics or staged outcome. We do, however, want to pour as much gasoline on this fire as is possible, lean on racers who share our vision for changing the trajectory of drag racing and taking this sport to the next level, and we believe the World Series of Pro Mod is where it begins.”
