Evans Waterless named first coolant allowed in Sportsman races at NHRA National Mello Yello Drag Racing and Divisional Series
SUFFIELD, CT (July 27, 2017) – Evans Waterless Coolant launched its first-ever NHRA contingency sponsorship program at the Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals, July 28-30, 2017. In another first, the NHRA has authorized Evans Waterless Coolant for use in Sportsman races at NHRA National Mello Yello Drag Racing and Divisional Series events.
Teams can apply for contingency sponsorship for $300 winner payouts and $100 runner-up payouts for National events and $100 and $50 respectively for winner/runner-up wins at Divisional events for the rest of 2017. The following classes qualify:
- Top Dragster
- Top Sportsman
- Competition Eliminator
- Super Stock
- Super Comp
- Super Gas
- Super Street
Evans’ increased NHRA support will include appearances at Sonoma, Las Vegas and Pomona, and will have contingency product available at all remaining races in 2017 and on the Evans website. According to Evans Marketing Director, Mike Tourville, “Because Evans breakthrough coolant technology runs without water, it overcomes the limitations of water. Evans’ high boiling point of 375 degrees prevents the formation of vapor and significantly reduces pressure in cooling systems. Even at high engine loads Evans enables the cooling system to do its job without fear of vapor pockets, detonation from hot spots, and loss of coolant.”
In the past, the NHRA did not allow the use of glycol coolant on the track because any leaks produce slippery conditions. But Evans Waterless Coolant proved that its ability to cool engines at lower pressure avoids overheating and reduces the risk of coolant leaks on the track.
Long-time custom vehicle designer Bob Ida of Ida Automotive points out what this means to race teams. “I take advantage of the properties of Evans coolant in my multi-time land speed record-holding 2004 Ford F150, ‘Frightning,’ he explains. “Although I have a small 4.6L , 281 cu in, DOHC crate engine, I can make 5-mile runs at Bonneville, over 200 MPH, and 1-mile runs at Wilmington Ohio, 193+MPH, race courses without fear of blowing a hose. When I’m at the finish line, rolling up my parachute, the temp is stable enough to drive the truck to lunch, if I want to. . . Because of Evans’ lower pressure, it’s less likely to overflow and lose any coolant even if the temp climbs very high.”
