Race Star Returns as Title Sponsor for MWDRS Top Dragster

TULSA, OK (Feb. 18, 2021) -- Race Star Wheels is returning in 2021 for its third-straight season as title rights holder for the Top Dragster class with the Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series (MWDRS) presented by J&A Service.

"It's all about grassroots racing," Race Star owner L.B. Davis declares of his involvement with the Tulsa-based series. "That's where the majority of racers compete and we want them to know that we're here to support them and help them. We want to be out there finding out what their real needs are so that we can build those needs into our products going forward."

Davis explains that new wheels remain constantly in development at the nearly 12-year-old Race Star facility in Kearney, MO, including a brand-new offering destined to debut later this year in Top Fuel and nitro Funny Car action. This hands-on approach also helped Race Star to develop the one-piece, double-beadlock 63 Pro Forged wheel favored by so many leading MWDRS Top Dragster competitors.

"The 63 Pro Forged line has been on the market for the past two-and-a-half years and it's definitely one of our flagship wheels now. We felt there was no better place to start with it than Top Dragster because there's just so many dragsters out there," Davis says.

Mid-West Drag Racing Series founder, president and promoter Keith Haney, who also races a Pro Mod entry shod with Race Star Wheels, says he appreciates what Davis and Race Star bring to the sport.

"L.B. and his people have been very easy to work with, both with the Mid-West Series and with my own team," Haney says. "And Race Star Wheels really does make a great product that looks every bit as good as they perform. We're very happy to have them on board."

Davis adds that Race Star Wheels are on display at the MWDRS merchandise trailer during all Mid-West Series stops and he is working with Haney to expand Race Star's future involvement. "We're hoping going forward from 2021 that we will play a much greater part than just being a sponsor in the Top Dragster category," he says.

The 2021 Race Star Wheels Top Dragster schedule within the Summit Racing Mid-West Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service opens Mar. 19-20, at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, TX. Additional stops at Belle Rose, LA; Tulsa, OK (twice); Houston, TX; Great Bend, KS; and Martin, MI, will follow, with a return to Ferris in October for the 2021 season finale.

The Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series is an all-eighth-mile, no-profit organization funded entirely through marketing partnerships and passed along to benefit MWDRS host tracks (typically about $10,000). The Mid-West Drag Racing Series also provides trackside sponsor banners to be displayed at each event, on-site PA sponsor announcements, and links to each company on the MWDRS website (www.MidWestDragRacingSeries.com), plus an extensive social-media presence, texts and e-mail blasts, and commercials during all events. Complete class rules are posted on the MWDRS website.
