ATLANTA (March 12, 2004) — The NOPI Drag Racing Association (NDRA) has announced Dunlop will be the official tire of its 2004 NOPI Racing Series Xbox Cup Championship.
This is the second consecutive season for Dunlop, a Goodyear brand in North America, NOPI said. The tire also will serve as the title sponsor of the NOPI Nationals drift exhibition plus the lanyard sponsor of the NDRA series and the NOPI Nationals.
The NOPI Racing Series starts April 24-25 and includes 11 races.
“Last year we introduced the Dunlop drag slick, and this year we will begin offering the Inferno, a DOT-legal drag radial,” said Mike Pulte, Dunlop manager, extreme performance. “The relationship with NOPI allows us to interact closely with consumers interested in personalizing their vehicle and the competitors who are out there redefining the limits.”
