Hot Rodders of Tomorrow has announced the addition of the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Junior Dragster Series. In 2017, Hot Rodders will partner with Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series, which is run by Dave Beimfohr, and is currently scheduled to have nine events next year. Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series is greatly supported by Trevor Wiggins from Comp Cams and three-time NHRA Top Fuel Champion Antron Brown. With its partnership with the Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series, Hot Rodders will be well on its way to establishing a Nationwide Program for Junior Dragsters. Both Antron Brown and Trevor Wiggins currently have their children competing in the Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series.
Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series will bring an additional 600 students into the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Program. With the growth of Hot Rodders of Tomorrow, and the addition of the Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series, The Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Program will have approximately 1,600 students enrolled in 2017. Dave Beimfohr said, “This new alliance between the HROT and the MJSS will allow us to reach a much larger segment of our young enthusiasts, giving them more opportunities to become involved with this great industry and sport. This is just the beginning.” Hot Rodders will use this blueprint to expand the Series over the next few years to become a Nationwide Jr. Dragster Program. Lee Robinson, a National Sales Manager at Hedman Hedders, stated, “The merger between Hot Rodders and Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series will extend the reach of this fantastic program. The more kids that you can reach out to and show there’s several different opportunities in the automotive world, the better.”
When informed of Hot Rodders merging with the Jr. Dragster Series, Antron Brown commented, “MJSS teaches great life lessons using Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics as its back bone. That is why the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow and MJSS are a perfect fit.”
