Fourteen-year-old Cade Poe of Poe and Poe Racing is one of the country’s most successful Jr. Drag Racing drivers.

With the addition of the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League 14-Year-Old Championship title in 2016, he’s built a reputation as one of the future superstars of NHRA drag racing. He will be available to fans throughout the weekend alongside his 2008 Motivational Tubing T/F Jr. Dragster.

Also appearing for Royal Purple is Sergeant Scott Graham of LASD Motorsports. In addition to drag racing, Graham is an active duty member of the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department with 29 years on the force, and currently works in the Narcotics division. He will be displaying his 1967 Plymouth Barracuda, “Cuda,” which produces 950 horsepower and 759 lb-ft. from a 440 c.i. Mopar engine and has recorded an 8.8 second quarter mile at 153 MPH.

These two drivers will have a meet and greet session at the Royal Purple Mobile Marketing Unit with NHRA legend, Tim Wilkerson, to talk about their careers and the sport of drag racing. Wilkerson, who is one of the top ten all-time most successful NHRA Funny Car drivers, will also host an autograph session at the Royal Purple booth. More details on these events will be be announced on Royal Purple’s social media channels.

“We’re thrilled to host these standout racers and their cars at the 2016 NHRA World Finals,” said Debby Neubauer, Royal Purple Vice President of Marketing. “Drag racing has some amazing stories to tell and these three drivers are some of the most compelling on the circuit. All three are perfect examples of what it means to be a Royal Purple Outperformer.”
