There’s nothing quite like seeing nitro methane-burning Top Fuel drag boat boiling a 1/4-mile of water in 4.7 seconds at over 250 mph. If you thought drag racing on land was a sight to behold, wait until you see it on water. For racing fans, the Lucas Oil Drag Boat Racing Series is the place to go to witness these violent, air-splitting machines and now that more than 900 teams are competing for one national championship, you have even more opportunities to catch the action.
E3 Spark Plugs, the leader in multiple electrode, high performance spark plugs, has recently renewed its sponsorship of the Drag Boat Series as well as a strong presence across the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series as well. The partnership will include considerable branding presence at each event as well as part of the Lucas Oil Series’ extensive television exposure.
“All of us at E3 Spark Plugs are very excited to be a part of one of the most exciting racing series ever. There’s simply nothing like seeing these machines in person,” said Steve Joiner, E3′s Vice President of Marketing.
Backed by a five year, 100,000-mile warranty, E3 Spark Plugs, with their side-wire electrode, projects the combustion spark in a way that more quickly ignites the air/fuel mixture thereby creating a significantly faster and larger flame kernel. In effect, this burns more of the available fuel, resulting in increased combustion efficiency for improved power and fuel economy with reduced emissions. They are now available for most automotive, small engine and powersports applications at automotive and home improvement retail stores nationwide.
