NORWALK, Ohio -- Our quiet season continues for two more months, but the National Hot Rod Association rocks the planet next week in Pomona, California with the 2013 Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
Please visit http://www.nhra.com/ for information on the new season.
Also, in a month known for heartwarming gestures, Mail Terminal Services and Don Schumacher Racing started something to continue the sentiments all season.
Drag racing fans may write notes to America’s heroes through Mail for Wounded Warriors and Hire a Hero programs connected with a Mail Terminal Services sponsorship on Jack Beckman’s Dodge Funny Car and Don Schumacher Racing.
Jack Beckman, the 2012 National Hot Rod Association Funny Car World Champion, drives a Mail for Wounded Warriors/Hire a Hero MTS Dodge Funny Car at seven of 24 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events.
At all 24 NHRA Mello Yello events in 2013, fans may stop by Jack Beckman’s pit and the Don Schumacher Racing Hospitality Pavilion to write encouraging messages for wounded warriors onto postcards.
Mail Terminal Services will deliver the cards to wounded warriors, and will donate $1 to the Wounded Warriors organization for each postcard fans complete at NHRA Mello Yello events.
“MTS will have a kiosk available for NHRA fans to participate in this worthwhile program,” said Rodger Comstock, president and chief executive officer of Mail Terminal Services. “We will supply postcards for fans to express gratitude, support, encouragement and thanks to those who sacrificed for our freedom.
“Mail Terminal Services, with the support of our partner Don Schumacher Racing, will honor service members injured while on duty fighting for our country,” Rodger Comstock said. “Postcards with words of encouragement and support will be sent to wounded warriors in areas hosting the 24 NHRA national events.”
Mail Terminal Services is owned by Rodger and Karen Comstock, who are avid drag racers.
