Safety Boost Emergency Battery System
Joins SHRA Bonus Program For 2015
1/29 - At every SHRA event in 2015, a lucky competitor will have their tech card drawn at the driver's meeting and receive a complete 'Safety Boost Emergency Battery System'. The folks at Safety Boost want to spread the word about their new product that is now available to the SHRA racers and fans, and what better way than to give away a unit at each race!
Originally designed for law enforcement, Safety Boost is a patented supplemental battery system designed to provide electrical power to start engines in the event of a primary battery failure. The system is added to your existing circuit and only engages when you tell it to. It's initial use has been for emergency vehicles, when on call the strains on their battery system is great with lights, computers and radios that must remain active. The Safety Boost has been especially useful with K-9 Police Units where there is an increased risk due to leaving the air conditioning on for the dog along with the lights, computers and radios. Now you can have that same feature, and it can be applied to any vehicle battery, car, bus, truck, boat, tractor - if it has a battery then Safety Boost is for you! Check them out and order online soon at www.SafetyBoost.com!
To have a chance to win a Safety Boost, each Nostalgia Eliminator and Old School Bracket racer must have turned in their paid tech card before the driver's meeting that takes place before each race. During that meeting, a lucky card will be drawn and if present that racer will take home a Safety Boost! A big thank you to the folks at Safety Boost for choosing the SHRA to help spread the word about their new product!

Announcing The AlkyDiggers
Nostalgia Eliminator Shootout
1/21 - Mike Chilando and the staff at Alkydiggers has stepped up their support of the Southwest Heritage Racing Association by becoming the sole sponsor of the Nostalgia Eliminator SHOOTOUTS for all three NE classes in SHRA in 2015!
In 2014, the SHRA Nostalgia Eliminator SHOOTOUTS were introduced and for the racers in those classes it was a battle all year to get in the elite 8 that got to battle for the big cash at the SHRA Finals! Alkydiggers was a sponsor of the 2014 NE3 Shootout and Chilando saw the success of that program in bringing excitement and fun to the grassroots SHRA racing program and immediately stepped up for 2015 to sponsor the entire SHOOTOUT program! "What a great program to reward racers for their hard work throughout the year' say Chilando. 'Being a racer myself and seeing that Alkydiggers customers are all competing for those SHOOTOUT points all year just made sense for me to throw all my support towards this program! Best of luck to all the racers in 2015' concludes Chilando. SHRA Marketing Director David Graves states that 'It just makes sense for a company like Alkydiggers to jump at the chance to support this great SHOOTOUT program for our NE class racers, and all the NE racers of the SHRA will be adding those 'little points' during the year to qualify for the big shootout at the SHRA Finals in Denton on October 31st!' Graves adds 'We can't thank Alkydigger's enough for supporting our series this past two years, and stepping up like this in 2015 is a great indication that SHRA racing is the place for nostalgia drag racing fun!

Competition Sales of Dallas Returns
With "Luck of the Draw" Bonus Programs
1/16 - The Southwest Heritage Racing Association is proud to welcome back for a third year Competition Sales of Dallas. This year the speed shop will support the SHRA with two bonus programs.
Back for another year is the popular "Luck of the Draw" bonus program where a SHRA racer will receive a case of Brad Penn oil from a lucky tech card drawing at the each drivers meeting. Brad Penn is truly 'MADE IN THE USA' coming from American Refining Group's Bradford, PA refinery and is the home of 'The Green Oil'. Brad Penn High Performance Oils are formulated using a unique base oil which give Brad Penn exceptional film strength. This unique base oil causes Brad Penn Oil to cling tenaciously to engine parts to minimize wear during high engine torque loading and/or periods of heavily stressed operation such as those experienced in competition. This same oil cling helps prevent dry starts conditions to minimize wear even after the engine has been sitting idle for extended periods. Competition Sales is the place to go for the best oil in racing!
Additionally, Competition Sales will be supporting the Nostalgia Eliminator racers with a special SUNOCO Fuel Bonus in 2015. At each SHRA race, all qualified NE racers will receive one ticket towards a drawing at the 2015 SHRA Awards Banquet for a drum of SUNOCO alcohol racing fuel! If you attend one event in 2015, you will receive one ticket for the drawing. If you attend at all 8 Nostalgia Eliminator events, then you will have 8 tickets and of course a much better chance of winning this lucky draw bonus that will take place at the banquet. For decades, Sunoco's fuels have been associated with racing excellence. Since the mid-60s, when Sunoco and the Roger Penske Racing Team with Mark Donohue forged what would be a long and successful alliance, the company has grown into an industry powerhouse. Winning on today's racing circuit requires more than an exceptional driver and a well-built car. It takes high-performance racing fuels that are willing to go the distance - fuels like those produced by Sunoco. For all your racing fuel needs, Competition Sales of Dallas is the place to buy SUNOCO racing fuel!
Opened in 1969, Competition Sales of Dallas quickly became one of the most trusted speed shops in Dallas. With the name appearing on some of the day's fastest and most respected race cars Competition Sales became the place to buy all your race car needs. Following in the footsteps of the original Competition Sales of Dallas speed shop, they are the choice for all your race car, street car, and street rod needs. They offer everything you will ever need from simple parts to all out complete motors and machine service.

"We are happy to make this our 3rd continuous year of support to nostalgia drag racing and are ready to assist in any of the SHRA teams needs to keep them fast and safe on the drag strip.
