MalloryPrint.com Returns as Title Sponsor of SHRA's Fourth Season!
2/8/16 - The Southwest Heritage Racing Association (SHRA) is proud to announce the return of series sponsor Mallory Screenprint & Embroidery for the 2016 racing season. MalloryPrint.com owner Al Mallory says the commitment to renew his contract as series sponsor for the fourth consecutive season was easy with the success and growth of the nostalgia drag racing series that began in 2013.
"The SHRA has grown in just a short few years to be the biggest grassroots series for nostalgia drag racers and fans in the southwest,” said Mallory. “It's affordable and most importantly fun and that goes a long way in today's environment. Mallory Screenprint and Embroidery is proud to continue to support the SHRA as the series continues to pick up more racers and fans in 2016" said Mallory.
Chris Graves, SHRA President shares Mallory’s optimism. "The racers, fans and other sponsors of the SHRA are extremely proud to resign MalloryPrint.com as the series sponsor, now for the fourth year in a row”. Graves goes on to state “This says a lot about our race series, to be able to have the commitment of Mallory Screenprint and Embroidery since the first race the SHRA held in April of 2013 when we didn’t know if racers, fans and sponsors would support the SHRA idea, but we all know now just how much support and growth the SHRA has seen in that time span and it's incredible! We had almost 250 different racers participate in the 2015 season and expect to push that to 300+ this year!”

SHRA Welcomes Dooley & Sons Hot Rod Shop as Alkydigger Nostalgia Eliminator Shootout Sponsor
2/2/16 - The Southwest Heritage Racing Association (SHRA) is proud to announce that in 2016, the Alkydigger.com Nostlagia Eliminator Shootout will be presented by Dooley & Sons Hot Rod Shop of Magnolia, TX.
In 2014, the SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator Shootouts were introduced. For the racers in those classes, it is a battle all year to get in the elite top eight that qualifies them to compete for the big cash at the SHRA Finals! Dooley and Sons Hot Rods recognizes the success of that program and has elected to fund it in 2016. "What a great program to reward racers for their hard work throughout the year” stated Jeff Cameron of Dooley and Sons. Jeff went on to say, “Being a racer myself and seeing the challenge and drama the Shootout brings to SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator racing, I wanted to see this program continue and I wanted to get involved and support the continued growth of the SHRA”.
SHRA Marketing Director David Graves added, “The SHRA is fortunate to attract such an outstanding company as Dooley & Sons as a supporter, and as racers they definitely built and bring one of the most beautiful cars to SHRA racing”. Graves continued, “This shootout program for our NE class racers is a fun one, and all the NE racers of the SHRA will be adding up those 'little points' from their qualifying efforts during the year to make the top eight for the big shootout that will take place during qualifying at the SHRA Finals in Denton on October 1st!”
Here's how the Shootout works – Nostalgia Eliminator drivers will be awarded points based on their final qualifying position at each event this season. The number 1 qualifier will receive 16 points, the number 16 qualifier receives 1 point. After the September 10th event in Wichita Falls, the field will be set and will include the top 8 points earners from the first seven events of the year in each Nostalgia Eliminator class. Eight cars from each of the three classes will be paired on a sportsman ladder at the SHRA Finals at North Star Dragway. The all-important first round of eliminations for all three shootouts presented by Dooley & Sons will be held during the first qualifying session at the SHRA Finals. The two quickest winners, without going under their respective index, will advance to the final round to be run in the second qualifying session. The winner will take home $500!
2015 Shootout Champs Tera W Graves (NE1), Joel Kelton (NE2) and Dusty Rose (NE3) will all be gunning to repeat in 2016! But first they have to 'qualify' for the field and their first opportunity comes on April 2nd when the SHRA kicks off the season in Temple, Texas!
Dooley & Sons Hot Rod Shop is a premier custom hot rod and restoration company based in Magnolia, Texas. Dooley Cameron started the shop in 1961 in Levelland, Texas as a one man shop. Five decades later with a move to Magnolia, sons Jeff and Tom work at the shop and it has grown beyond their wildest dreams. Today the facility is stretched out over 15 acres, a 20,000 square-foot facility houses custom sheet metal fabrication, upholstery, chassis fabrication, paint and body, exhaust fabrication, and final assembly departments are all under one roof. This arrangement enables the shop to maintain stringent quality control standards by closely monitoring each car through every phase of the build. During the construction phase, project cars can easily move between each department to undergo minor design changes as necessary, resulting in a remarkably well-integrated package from top to bottom. They do it all, from custom engines, expert CAD engineering, award winning interiors, show quality paint and body, metal fab, custom chassis construction – there is nothing that Dooley and Sons can’t do when it comes to making top flight award winning cars! Be sure and check out their builds and services at their website www.dooleyandsons.com and Facebook page. And if you pull up next to a ’48 Austin in the staging lanes, be prepared as Jeff Cameron will be behind the wheel!.
