Hot Shot’s Secret Director of Branding & Promotions, Kyle Fischer, says, “We are incredibly pleased to see NHRDA return to the diesel competition stage with multiple series and huge plans for 2023. Hot Shot’s Secret’s core audience is diesel competitors and enthusiasts, so we will always be where the action is when it comes to top-tier diesel competition.”

Drag Race Classes planned for 2023 include Top Diesel, Pro Stock, Pro Street, Hot Rod Semi Truck, Super Street (5.90 index), 6.70 index, Super Diesel (7.70 index), Sportsman, and Big Rig Bracket. Sled Pulling Classes are Super Stock Diesel Truck, Pro Stock Diesel Truck, and Limited Pro Stock Diesel Truck. 

Hot Shot’s Secret manufactures some of the nation’s top-selling diesel additive products including the number one diesel additive in the USA – EDT (Everyday Diesel Treatment), Diesel Extreme, and EDT+ Winter Defense a new winter fuel additive that has many of the properties associated with EDT plus added lubricity and anti-gel properties to prevent diesel fuel from icing or gelling. 

Hot Shot’s Secret and NHRDA will host a co-joined press conference at the 2022 Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Show on Friday, February 9 at 3:00 p.m. EST to give more details about the title sponsorship and NHRDA plans for the 2023 season in booth #4005. The press conference will be co-hosted by NHRDA Director, Randy Cole and Kyle Fischer. 

Cole says, “NHRDA is evolving, and we are more than excited to be back in the business of event competition. We have updated our website and are bringing back Diesel TV so that all our fans can stay tuned to what is happening throughout the year. This year, we will have fewer events with a focus on the west coast, and new for 2023 there will be a team competition between the Outlaw Diesel Super Series (ODSS) and NHRDA competitors for a true world championship title. Hot Shot’s Secret was our title sponsor back in 2018 and we are super excited to once again partner with them for the 2023 season.”

Motorsports pros Rick Jones, Kevin Lawrence, Dave River, and Jeff Wick have announced the rebirth of the Midwest Pro Stock Association (MPSA), a drag racing series formed by Jim Wick in the late 1980s. The series folded following the passing of Wick in 2002. 

“A group of us were together at the World Series of Drag Racing at Cordova—which itself is an end-of-the-season match race—and we thought it would be a good deal to bring back match racing year-round like they used to. So I called [Jim’s son] Jeff Wick to see if we could use the MPSA name. He was on board and even wanted to help and compete, too,” Lawrence said to PRI. “Jeff will compete in the Matchmaker car they haven’t run since Jim’s passing.”
