GLENDORA, CA – NHRA has partnered with Authentic Street Signs to greenlight a collection of heavy-duty steel street signs and home décor that offer fans an incredible upgrade for their man caves, garage and patios. The licensing partnership was secured by JRL Group, NHRA’s licensing agency.
Authentic Street Signs brings a classic approach to American manufacturing. Known for their commitment to quality, they build incredibly durable, indoor/outdoor rated street signs exactly how they were made in the 1950’s. Heavy gauge U.S. steel, baked-on automotive grade enamels—these signs were made to last. Thundering across the finish line, these new NHRA street signs, along with a collection of their new laser cut steel emblem signs, and steel magnets, are now available for sale at www.authenticstreetsigns.com.
“With such a proud legacy, we are thrilled to partner with an organization like the NHRA,” says Mark Wollin, Founder of Authentic Street Signs. “We knew that the plastic & tin signs that you see everywhere wouldn’t cut it. Drag racing fans deserve something better. That’s why we’re excited to present these American-made, solid steel signs and magnets to fans everywhere.”

LAS VEGAS – For the first time in two years, four-wide NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series racing, the sport’s ultimate thrill ride, will return to The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the DENSO Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals on April 16-18.

They can also have their wheels fitted with tires free of charge with the option to purchase them through the Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels Try It and Buy It program, and the company also is offering 5 percent off regular retail price, up to 25 percent off select tires in stock and 50 percent off mounting and balancing of tires purchased during the event.
