Huntington, NY – The Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association is pleased to welcome the involvement of Jesel as an associate sponsor for 2011.
“We are thrilled to have another industry leader like Jesel step up and support the NEOPMA and believe it’s a testament to the hard work of everyone on both sides of the partnership,” John Mazzorana says.

PORT ALLEN, LA – No Mardi Gras celebration would be complete without an abundance of beads, decorations, music and plenty of Cajun cuisine and that is exactly what the winners of Sunday’s Nitro Jam finale enjoyed in victory lane as over a dozen different drivers hoisted a brand new Ironman trophy during an absolutely huge race weekend at the third annual Mardi Gras Nitro Jam at State Capitol Raceway in Baton Rouge.
And topping that list was the popular “Poverty Stricken” Funny Car team headed by driver Peter Gallen who swept the Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car category over the weekend and vaulted to the top of the Prostalgia championship standings in the process. Gallen pushed his car to the limit both nights of the annual Louisiana event, defeating Mike McIntire both times to perform the only sweep of the weekend.
