KIRKSVILLE, Mo. --

Drag Illustrated magazine announced today that its popular Driver Blog series written by NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster star Megan Meyer will be presented by WELD Racing this season. Now in her fourth year as a Drag Illustrated Driver Blog contributor, Meyer will give readers a behind-the-scenes look at her experiences as a championship-contending driver and team manager at Randy Meyer Racing.

"Since becoming a brand ambassador for WELD last year, I have learned a tremendous amount about wheel specs for all different types of motorsports," said Meyer, a two-time NHRA national event winner. "I would like to transfer that knowledge to other racers through the blogs, while also touch on other important aspects of racing. In my blogs for this year, I have a few creative ideas to cover, such as shop talk, fitness, outdoors lifestyle, how to get started in drag racing, sponsorships, and more. My goal is to create awareness of a driver's lifestyle and how I can help fellow racers become well-rounded on and off the track through my personal experiences."

In addition to representing WELD Racing on the track as a brand ambassador and online through her Drag Illustrated Driver Blog presented by WELD Racing, Meyer and the Randy Meyer Racing team will represent WELD as a product dealer, offering products and technical support to fellow Sportsman racers at the track and through http://RandyMeyerRacing.com. As a WELD dealer, Randy Meyer Racing will include free shipping to the customer's shop or to any races on the RMR schedule.

"WELD Racing is a seasoned and trusted company when it comes to wheels that can withstand the harsh racing environment we put our drag cars through," Meyer continued. "We have been partnered with WELD Racing since the first decade of our team's existence. WELD Racing has tremendous value in their products and we are confident it's part of our success in winning races."

The Randy Meyer Racing team uses WELD Racing Magnum Pro rear wheels and V-Series front-runners on both of their record-setting Top Alcohol Dragsters, which ran the quickest and fastest times of the 2017 NHRA season. While running two cars between six different drivers, the Randy Meyer Racing team competed in 20 races in the NHRA Lucas Oil National and Regional series, finishing in the final round at 13 of the events while claiming 7 wins and the Central Region Championship.

"Our team at WELD Racing is very proud to work with Megan Meyer in her role as a Brand Ambassador and Dealer for WELD," said Vic Wood, Senior Director of Strategic Sales, WELD Racing. "Megan has proven to be the consummate professional in her pursuit of success and her representation of WELD Racing, which we are thrilled to be able to continue in 2018. Randy Meyer Racing is a first-class operation at all levels and they leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of excellence both on and off the track. We take this opportunity to wish the entire Randy Meyer Racing group the best of success in 2018 and remind everyone #The ChampionshipAwaits!"
