The NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series
In 2009, NHRA and The Coca-Cola Company enter their eighth year as partners in presenting the world’s fastest motorsports attraction: the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. Last April, Coca-Cola and NHRA announced an extension of the title sponsorship for NHRA's marquee touring series that runs through 2013 and that Full Throttle would replace POWERade as the title sponsor. In 2009, Coca-Cola has announced plans for an aggressive marketing activation strategy. Since becoming series sponsor in 2002, Coca-Cola has created a variety of consumer programs that have helped to elevate NHRA’s awareness. Regional promotions in event markets, national presence through commemorative packaging, national television advertisements featuring the stars of the sport, and point-of-purchase displays highlighting the brand’s association with NHRA are just a few of the many exciting initiatives that The Coca-Cola Company brought to NHRA fans. Coca-Cola introduced Full Throttle to the sport in 2005, as it became an official sponsor of NHRA, and implemented a program to reward NHRA Pro pit crews. The series sponsorship extension with Full Throttle continues to designate Coca-Cola as the official soft drink of NHRA and Dasani as the official water of NHRA.

NHRA’s partnership with Full Throttle also includes a major commitment and involvement from Coca-Cola Enterprises, the world’s largest marketer, producer, and distributor of The Coca-Cola Company, to provide series sponsorship support at the consumer distribution level. The Coca-Cola Company is the world’s largest beverage company, refreshing consumers with more than 450 sparkling and still brands. Along with Coca-Cola, recognized as the world’s most valuable brand, the company’s portfolio includes 12 other billion-dollar brands, including Diet Coke, Fanta, Sprite, Coca-Cola Zero, vitaminwater, POWERade, Minute Maid, and Georgia Coffee. Globally, it is the number-one provider of sparkling beverages, juices, and juice drinks and ready-to-drink teas and coffees. Through the world’s largest beverage distribution system, consumers in more than 200 countries enjoy the company’s beverages at a rate of 1.5 billion servings a day. With an enduring commitment to building sustainable communities, the company is focused on initiatives that protect the environment, conserve resources, and enhance the economic development of the communities where it operates.
