NHRA Pro Stock World Champion Erica Enders partners with Dutch Boy Paints and Menards for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event this weekend at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park.
Enders will drive the Elite Motorsports prepared Dutch Boy/Menards Dodge Dart at the 10th annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals in Norwalk, Ohio.
“I’m honored to drive the Dodge Dart this weekend with such a recognizable brand on the door and the hood of our car,” Enders said. “I’m glad they’re giving us an opportunity to show them what we can do for them.”
To help kick off the partnership, Enders made an appearance at the Menards store in Sandusky, Ohio, on Wednesday. Menards has more than 280 home-improvement stores throughout the Midwest and is known as the low-price leader. The company has backed motorsports for many years, in the IndyCar Series, NASCAR, and ARCA.
Dutch Boy Paints, available at Menards stores, continues to be an industry leader in delivering innovative and high-quality products and packaging solutions.
Enders became the first woman to win the Pro Stock championship in 2014, earning the title in the final round of the final race. She repeated in 2015, winning nine times and setting NHRA records along the way. She is the only driver in NHRA history to win three consecutive final rounds on holeshots.
Enders and her Elite team partnered with Dodge to field the new Elite Motorsports/Mopar Dodge Dart for the 2016 season.
