NORWALK , Ohio ( February 22, 2007 ) – Shelor Motor Mile has been named the “Official Vehicle Provider” of the IHRA. The company, which also owns IHRA member-track Motor Mile Dragway, will provide the sanctioning body with its fleet of trucks used as support vehicles for IHRA events, including the Nitro Jam™ Drag Racing Series.

"We saw partnering with the IHRA as a great opportunity to expand our business into new markets," said Shelor Motor Mile co-owner David Hagan. "We're one of the largest automotive dealers in the country, and we're equipped to handle orders from all over the United States through our website and our toll-free numbers."

"Our volume allows us to price vehicles competitively regardless of whether you're down the street or halfway across the country,” added Hagan. "Our entire inventory is available online at Shelor Auto Group, or you can reach our sales team toll-free at 1-866-SHELOR1.”

“I’d like to welcome aboard Shelor Motor Mile to the IHRA family and thank them for their sponsorship,” said IHRA President Aaron Polburn. “As an ‘Official’ sponsor, their support is not only of our sanctioning body but flows down to our nearly 20,000 members. We are excited to partner with such a great company and look forward to building a long-lasting relationship.”

Shelor Motor Mile, founded as Shelor Chevrolet in 1974, is a 56 acre facility located at 2265 Roanoke Street in Christianburg , Va. Today, Shelor is a multi-franchise dealership selling Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota/Scion, Chrysler/Dodge, Subaru and Kia. Offering customers a selection of over 2,500 cars, trucks, SUVs and vans, Shelor features five new car showrooms and one of the largest used car superstores in the country.

In addition to automobiles, Shelor is a full-line Haulmark trailer and motorhome dealer.

“As the ‘Official Vehicle Provider’ of the IHRA, Shelor Motor Mile has become a major component of what makes IHRA drag racing possible,” said Mike Baker, IHRA director of competition and technical services. “The fleet of trucks and transporters that serve as support for our events is crucial to holding races across the country, and therefore, we absolutely could not operate at the level we do without the commitment from Shelor.”
