Don Schumacher Racing’s newest Mopar/Pennzoil Top Fuel dragster was unveiled on Thursday with Pritchett during the Mopar Mile-High Nationals press conference at Elway’s Restaurant in Denver, Colorado before the Mopar Mile High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.
Mopar and Pennzoil will be the marketing partners supporting Pritchett and DSR’s fourth Top Fuel dragster at Bandimere and at three other NHRA national events including last weekend’s race at Sonoma Raceway near San Francisco, followed by Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, Pa., and at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Oct. 28-30 in the penultimate event of the 24-race NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season.
Mopar’s association with Pennzoil extends an already robust global business relationship between the two brands.
Shell supplies bulk and packaged oil and transmission fluids for Mopar in the United States, Canada, Mexico and many other countries throughout the world, and Shell’s Pennzoil is the approved factory-fill for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep® and Ram vehicles.
Pennzoil is The Official Oil Technology partner for DSR, and a major associate sponsor on two-time NHRA Funny Car world champion Matt Hagan’s Mopar Express Lane Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car at DSR that fields eight professional teams.
Pritchett, 28, captured her first career Top Fuel victory earlier this season and advanced to the semifinals on July 10 at the recent Route 66 NHRA Nationals near Chicago. The DSR star takes her seat in the HEMI-powered Mopar/Pennzoil Top Fuel dragster currently positioned 10th in the Mello Yello standings.
