NHRA Fanfest takes place Wednesday in C-bus
Dave Gill Pontiac-GMC, at the corner of Hamilton and Broad Streets in Columbus, Ohio, will be holding its annual Pontiac Motorsports NHRA Driver Fanfest Wednesday.
The festivities will take place at the dealership from 4-7 p.m. and will feature NHRA drivers, racecars, and team transporters from the GM Racing contingent. Scheduled to attend are six-time NHRA Pro Stock champion Warren Johnson, two-time NHRA Pro Stock champion Jim Yates, 2003 NHRA champion Greg Anderson, two-time NHRA champion Jeg Coughlin Jr.. and Summit Racing's Mark Pawuk.
Other drivers at the Fanfest will include racing veteran Bruce Allen, Kurt Johnson, Mike Edwards, Columbus native Troy Coughlin, Jason Line and Ohio native Ron Krisher. Chevy Monte Carlo Funny Car drivers on hand will include Del Worsham, defending POWERade champion Tony Pedregon, Tony Bartone, Ron Capps, Tommy Johnson Jr., Cruz Pedregon and Tim Wilkerson. Top Fuel driver Cory McClenathan and drag racing great Darrell Gwynn are also expected to attend.
The Dave Gill Pontiac-GMC open house has become an annual tradition during Pontiac Excitement Nationals week and this year another large crowd is expected to attend.
"This is the best promotional event that the dealership does all year," Gill said. "We've been holding this event for a long time and it's a pleasure hosting the teams, the drivers and the community at the annual Dave Gill Pontiac-GMC NHRA Fan Fest. There are a lot of motorsports fans in Columbus, so from our standpoint, it's an opportunity we can't pass up.
"This is a program that we get behind 100 percent because of the tradition that it has become at our dealership along with the prestige of the race at National Trail Raceway. It's a lot of fun for everyone who participates and a great way to kick-off Pontiac Excitement Nationals weekend."
This year's Pontiac Motorsports Fanfest includes customer giveaways, a radio remote, a raffle for an autographed racing helmet signed by NHRA drivers, and other NHRA motorsports activities that race fans will enjoy.
