Impressed with how the inaugural DRAG ILLUSTRATED World Series of Pro Mod went, MagnaFuel is back as a sponsor for the second year of the event, and it is bringing big-time Top Dragster and Top Sportsman purses with them.
DRAG ILLUSTRATED officials announced today that MagnaFuel has been named the title sponsor for both the Top Sportsman and Top Dragster classes at their fast-approaching World Series of Pro Mod, which takes place Aug. 10-11 at Bandimere Speedway. The winners in both the MagnaFuel Pro Star 16 for Top Dragster and Quick Star 16 for Top Sportsman will receive $4,000, an impressive purse that has already gotten the attention of racers in both classes.
“We’re very excited to again be part of the World Series of Pro Mod,” MagnaFuel’s Robbie Ward said. “We had a great response from Top Dragster and Top Sportsman racers a year ago, and it was a neat deal seeing how competitive they were at altitude. To a lot of these guys, Pro Mod is the next level for them, and it was great to see them run at a race where they are kind of the show, too. It’s going to be really exciting this year.”
Along with the $4,000-to-win purse, the entry fee for both classes is just $150, presenting a massive opportunity for racers to compete at a world-class event that is one of the most highly-anticipated in 2018.
“Top Sportsman and Top Dragster are two of the most incredible eliminators in drag racing right now,” said DRAG ILLUSTRATED Founder and Editorial Director Wes Buck. “These categories are driving our industry forward, and the cars within – as well as the awesome drivers, owners and teams – are exactly the kind we want involved with the World Series of Pro Mod. As far as I’m concerned, Top Sportsman and Top Dragster are the perfect compliment to Pro Mod, and I’m over-the-moon that Robbie [Ward] and the team at MagnaFuel have made it possible.”
