NHRA Pro Stock competitor Rodger Brogdon secured a Top 10 finish in just his 2nd year of racing. "We have learned quite a bit during the 2010 season," said Brogdon, "and we are really looking forward to applying those lessons to this year's Full Throttle Championship run. For 2011 we are going to bring to the circuit a new look with our new sponsor, The Racers Edge."

David Rampy, recognized as one of the most prolific drivers in NHRA drag racing and the 6th winningest driver in NHRA history, will return to full time racing in 2011 with the support of The Racers Edge Pain and Performance chips. With 3 NHRA World Championships and 74 National event wins to his credit, Rampy and crew chief, Barry Davis, now have the backing needed to pursue the Lucas Oil Championships in Comp Eliminator along with his new Super Stock Camaro.

James Wheeler, CEO of MCHU, stated: "We are very excited about the opening of the 2011 NHRA season at Pomona with The Racers Edge being a major sponsor of Rodger Brogdon and his racing team. This year we plan to sell the Pain and Performance Chips at each NHRA National Racing event. We believe the exposure from last year and The Racers Edge logo, not only on Rodger's and David's teams but several other minor sponsorships with other drivers, will increase sales dramatically not only at the track but also over the internet."
