We have been aware of the NHRA for some time and we feel that the drag racing fan matches up very well with our customer profile. Our goal is to build our brand with superior competition on the racetrack and offer NHRA fans the best service and guaranteed low prices on brand-name merchandise in our 1800 stores across the country."
