Jim Campbell, vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, said that Chevrolet is proud to be named as the official truck of the NHRA and is well-pleased that the Silverados and Suburbans have been recognized for their reputation for safety. According to Campbell, this partnership “allows us to showcase the most dependable, longest-lasting trucks in America.”
From 1985 to 2008, General Motors paired up with the NHRA as an official sponsor through multiple brands. Chevrolet, one of the largest car brands globally, sells close to five million cars and trucks each year, conducts business in over 140 countries, and now has the opportunity to expand its brand even further with this new deal with the NHRA.
Several drivers in the Pro Stock class, including Greg Anderson, Shane Gray, and Jason Line, already race Chevrolet Camaros, so it is no surprise the brand was chosen as the official truck of the NHRA.
Gary Darcy, NHRA senior vice president of sales and marketing, explained that this is a “unique platform for Chevrolet” and that it is a “great opportunity to expose its products to NHRA fans.” Darcy also added that the brand has had a good history when teaming up with the NHRA.
