    KYMCO USA named Official Scooter and ATV of NHRA

    NHRA officials have announced that the world’s largest motorsports sanctioning body has partnered with KYMCO USA, a longtime leader in quality, fuel-efficient scooters, ATVs, and UTVs. As part of the agreement, KYMCO USA will become the official scooter and ATV of NHRA.

    KYMCO USA will provide NHRA with scooters and ATVs for use at its NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events and at its five owned and operated drag racing facilities.

    As an NHRA official sponsor, KYMCO USA will receive visibility at NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events as well as exposure throughout NHRA’s various media platforms.

    “We are pleased to welcome KYMCO USA into the NHRA family of official sponsors,” said Gary Darcy, NHRA senior vice president-sales & marketing. “The quality scooters and ATVs that KYMCO USA provides NHRA will certainly help our Safety Safari team as well as our track officials do their jobs in a more efficient manner. In turn, we feel the partnership will offer exceptional exposure opportunities to generate awareness and recognition for KYMCO USA.”

    This is the first sponsorship relationship between NHRA and KYMCO USA.

    “We’re extremely excited to be partnering with the NHRA,” said KYMCO USA President/CEO Eric Bondy. “They’re a world-class organization that provides tremendous entertainment for all members of the family. This partnership falls directly in line with our strategy of partnering with great organizations to build national awareness of the KYMCO brand. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
