GLENDORA, CA – May 22, 2021 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – NHRA and Constant Aviation have teamed up to launch the Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown Bounty program.
Purpose of the Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown Bounty program is to drive interest from both fan and drivers in the Factory Stock Showdown class as well as increase available prize money.
The program will see a “bounty” placed on the head of the previous event winner. As the Gainesville winner, driver Aaron Stanfield is now being hunted by the rest of the Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown field. If a competitor is able to beat Stanfield at this weekend’s upcoming Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals Presented By Pennzoil in Houston, that driver will receive a $1,000 prize. If Stanfield takes home the win in Houston, his bounty is upped to $2,000.
“As the new sponsor of the Factory Stock Showdown, we wanted to shake things up a little,” said Constant Aviation Chief Executive Officer David H. Davies. “And by introducing the Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown Bounty program at Houston Raceway Park during the Mopar Express Lane SpringNationals, we expect to add to the excitement for both fans and drivers.”
“We are very excited about this new program with Constant Aviation,” said Brad Gerber, NHRA Vice President and Chief Development Officer. “The NHRA Factory Stock Showdown class is such a competitive field, and this Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown Bounty program will only continue to fuel the competition of the Constant Aviation Factory Stock Showdown racers.”
The Constant Aviation NHRA Factory Stock Showdown class will return to racing action at the Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals Presented by Pennzoil at Houston Raceway Park, May 21-23.
