Camping World partnered with the largest motorsports sanctioning body to become the title sponsor of NHRA’s premier professional series, which will be called the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series.
“I look at NHRA and I see a growing and loyal fan base,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World. “NHRA recognizes the product it has in the sport of drag racing and its responsibility to serve its fans. We at Camping World look forward to this new relationship.”
The sponsorship, beginning immediately, will be in full swing as the NHRA celebrates its 70th anniversary and Camping World celebrates its 55th year in 2021. For more than five decades, Camping World has offered specialized products and accessories, expert advice and professional service to RV owners and campers. NHRA’s drivers, teams and fans are deeply-rooted in RVs, camping, towing, and outdoor living.
“Camping World has a strong history in motorsports, and we can’t wait to introduce them to the incredible action of NHRA’s 11,000-horsepower, 330-mph racing,” said NHRA President Glen Cromwell. “Our fans, drivers, teams and partners are thrilled about the potential of this relationship as we welcome Camping World as a partner and entitlement sponsor for the NHRA and its premier series”
Throughout the life of the sponsorship, the NHRA is expected to deliver growth and fan retention for Camping World. Camping World, which has more than 160 locations nationwide, will also have a significant presence at NHRA national events and on NHRA’s television coverage with the FOX broadcast network and Fox Sports 1 (FS1).
With over 160 Camping World and Gander RV & Outdoor SuperCenters nationwide, Camping World is the largest retailer of RVs in the U.S.
