GLENDORA, Calif. -- It was announced today by NHRA officials that Tige Boats has been named the presenting sponsor for the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service portion of the upcoming NHRA SpringNationals, which takes place April 20-22 at Royal Purple Raceway near Houston. It marks the second of 12 races during the 2018 season.

In Houston, race fans will be entertained by the incredible action of the E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service, which offers something unique for every kind of hot-rodding enthusiast. The class continues to boast impressive depth on its talented roster, and is also highlighted by historic muscle cars like the '67 Mustang, '68 Firebird and '69 Camaro, as well as a variety of late model American muscle cars. Producing more than 3,000 horsepower, the suspended door pro mod cars travel the quarter-mile in less than six seconds at speeds of more than 250 mph.

"The 2018 E3 Spark Plugs NHRA Pro Mod Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service season is already off to a terrific start and we're excited to see what the class has in store for fans at Royal Purple Raceway," said Brad Gerber, NHRA vice president and chief development officer. "We're pleased to have Tige Boats as a partner of the series, knowing their passion and innovation fits in perfectly with this class."

The all-new TAPS 3 Surf System with Surf Link remote, Tige CLEAR interface, and patented Convex V hull are just some of the features that make Tige stand out from its competition.
