Flowmaster Inc., one of the the exhaust technology leaders, and Promedia Events have announced that they will partner to bring the all-new NMCA WEST Street Car Series through the 2013 season. The NMCA WEST series will debut in 2012 with a four-race events championship series for the growing west coast drag racing contingent that has longed for another prominent venue in which to compete. Below is the inaugural NMCA WEST schedule, which will visit three different tracks between April and October.

“The west coast drag racing and muscle car scene has been asking the NMCA to produce high-quality motorsport events for years,” said Charlie Harmon, president of ProMedia Events. “Flowmaster’s partnership with NMCA WEST, along with major support from our core sponsorship base, will contribute to great racing classes and a world class contingency program. Combine great competition with the media exposure NMCA attracts and you will see west coast drag racing take off and go to the next level.”
“Flowmaster is excited to become the title sponsor of the NMCA WEST Street Car series for the next two years,” stated Nate Shelton, chief marketing officer of B&M Racing & Performance that includes Flowmaster, Inc. “The NMCA WEST Street Car Series sponsorship just seemed like a natural for our brands to further enhance our connection with racers, both those who know Flowmaster and those who need to learn about what we offer. We view racing as one of the best ways to engage the racers at the track to find out how to further improve Flowmaster exhaust products to control sound with no loss of engine power or torque. We have always supported those customers who have us for so many years by loyal purchase of our products. This racing series just gives us one more opportunity to do so.”
Promedia Events will release a complete list of NMCA WEST classes and rules in the coming weeks, along with a special announcement that is “guaranteed to make the 2012 season extra special.”
