NTK Named Entitlement Sponsor of NHRA NTK Carolina Nationals

NTK Named Entitlement Sponsor of NHRA NTK Carolina Nationals

NTK’s sponsorship comes on the heels of NGK Spark Plugs having sponsored the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway for two years.

The 12th edition of zMAX Dragway’s showcase of nitro-fueled excitement and nail-biting championship drama has a new name. NTK, a global brand of premium technical sensors and a division of NGK Spark Plugs, will serve as entitlement sponsor of the Oct. 11-13 NHRA NTK Carolina Nationals.

NTK’s sponsorship comes on the heels of NGK Spark Plugs having sponsored the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway for two years.

The third race in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series’ six-event Countdown to the Championship promises to offer drivers cool October temperatures – providing the potential for track-record speeds when nitro-powered Top Fuel and Funny Car machines scorch zMAX Dragway’s pavement in search of a coveted Countdown triumph.

“We are excited to add the NTK Carolina Nationals as a complementary event to our NKG Four-Wides sponsorship with Charlotte Motor Speedway,” stated Brian Norko, NGK Spark Plugs USA vice president of aftermarket. “We expect the same success we’ve gained with our NGK product line to translate over to our premium sensor line at NTK. It’s only fitting that we showcase our world leading brands as the kickoff and finale for these two world-class NHRA events at zMax Dragway.”
