NGK Spark Plugs-backed teams racked up three wins last weekend at the NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, at zMAX Dragway in Concord, North Carolina. In addition to being a partner of Charlotte Motor Speedway, NGK also served as the title sponsor of the event. The company’s sponsored teams scored wins in NHRA’s Top Alcohol Dragster, Top Sportsman and Top Alcohol Funny Car.

Megan Meyer, driver for NGK/Randy Meyer Racing, took the win in Top Alcohol Dragster, building strong momentum early in her two-year partnership with NGK Spark Plugs. U.S. Army veteran Don O’Neal, who has been a long time partner with NGK Spark Plugs, drove his MADATIVE VP Fuel 632-cubic-inch Big-Block Chevy Monte Carlo to the Top Sportsman win. Rounding out the wins was Annie Whiteley, driver of the J & A Service/Y-Not Racing Camaro-bodied Top Alcohol Funny Car. NGK had over 35 sponsored racers finish in Top Alcohol Dragster, Top Alcohol Funny Car, Pro Stock Motorcycle, Pro Mod, Super Comp and Top Dragster, as well. 

“Sitting at the starting line watching all of our NGK-sponsored racers dominate at the 2018 NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals was exhilarating. We are so proud of our winner circle race teams, Megan Meyers, Don O’Neal and Annie Whitely, as well as all of the hard working drag racing teams we’re supporting,” said NGK Spark Plugs General Manager of Marketing, Aftermarket Division, Danielle Orlando. “The NHRA Four-Wide Nationals represents what NGK Spark Plugs is all about:  an unwavering dedication to power, performance and the fans.”
