We are delighted to announce that J.A. Russell Ltd is now the ‘presenting right sponsor’ of the Sprint Car class at next year’s Rolling Thunder Series to be held over three weeks at Palmerston North, Bay Park and Vodafone Speedway – Western Springs. This Series will be held late February and early March at these venues.

“We are very excited to be supported by a company like J.A. Russell Ltd”, said Greg Mosen – Promoter, “this secures this Series for three years which is great for the event,” he said.

J. A. Russell Ltd is New Zealand’s largest supplier of electrical product to the trade. A family owned business since 1951, they are proud to sponsor the Sprint Car category of Rolling Thunder. This concept takes a top group of car owners, crew, and drivers on a road trip, where they collectively challenge themselves for reliability and consistency, vying for a prize pool unheard of in New Zealand Speedway. Their involvement with Speedway started more than 20 years ago with the sponsorship of the TQ, Midget and Sprint Car classes. They are current sponsors of Sprint Car 3NZ Jamie McDonald.

“We are excited to sponsor the Sprint Car category for the 2018 Rolling Thunder Series, which promises to deliver an action-packed experience of high energy fun” said Simon Jaffe – General Manager Sales, “everyone can get behind their favourite Rolling Thunder drivers and teams and follow them on their quest to become 2018 Rolling Thunder Sprint Car Champion”, he said.
