The Jim Dunn Racing 7-Eleven and Oberto Beef Jerky Dodge Funny Car will make its debut at this weekend’s NHRA Gatornationals. The team is coming off a semi-final round finish at the recent NHRA Arizona Nationals in Phoenix, and ranks #7 in Championship points for the NHRA Mello Yello Series.
Team Manager, Jon Dunn, is enthusiastic about this weekend’s race in Florida. "Our family always enjoys the Gatornationals. My dad has had great success here as a team owner including reaching the final round just two years ago. The combination of 7-Eleven and Oberto Beef Jerky is a winning team. We are ready to go racing."
In addition to the race event, the 7-Eleven store at 1778 Blanding Blvd in Middleburg, FL will have the 7-Eleven Funny Car on display, with driver Jim Campbell signing autographs this Thursday, March 16, from 5:00-7:00pm.
Nitro Funny Car qualifying begins at 1:30pm this Friday, March 17 in Gainesville, FL, with coverage on Fox Sports 1 throughout the race weekend. Follow the team on Facebook @JimDunnRacing for updates.
