Stith Printing Inc. Unveils Its Newest Brand – Legends of Nitro

SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA - Legends of Nitro Announces 260/265 Mile Per Hour Club

Kevin Stith of Stith Printing and Legends of Nitro announced today that his company is starting two clubs for fast vintage drag racing cars; the 260 Mile Per Hour Club for Funny Cars and a 265 Mile Per Hour Club for Top Fuel with the first eight drivers attaining that speed being welcomed into each club.

“With the possibility that the sanctioning body may soon make changes to nostalgia racing we thought this would be the best time to acknowledge the fastest racecars and drivers of Heritage-style racing,” said Company President Kevin Stith. "Forming both of these performance clubs is our way of giving back to these top running teams and drivers."

As long as drivers are racing under NHRA Heritage Series Rules, any driver meeting the criterion may be welcomed into each club, we have included Drag Racing Online AA/FC Challenge competitors to the club since those nitro funny cars race under the same rules.

In March of 2012, two-time NHRA Heritage Series Champion Jason Rupert broke the 260 mph funny car mark with his 5.668/262.03 charge at the 54th March Meet at Auto Club Famoso Raceway is the first member of the nitro funny car club. Utah’s Jack “the Sherriff” Harris holds the honor of the fastest run ever - 265.09 at the 2005 California Hot Rod Reunion in his “Nitro Thunder” top fueler.

Both Jason Rupert and Jack Harris will receive their distinctive club jackets at a Pre-race Ceremony on Sunday of the upcoming 55th March Meet on March 10, 2013. For more information on the Legends of Nitro program:
