Recognized as one of the most colorful race cars of the 2022 NHRA season, Blaze Technical Services will fly their popular nostalgic flame pattern on the Jim Dunn Racing Funny Car at this year’s NHRA National Event in Norwalk. The black background, highlighted by purple, blue and green scalloped flames, is a retro look worthy of Jim Dunn’s legendary role in drag racing for the past 60 years.
Blaze of nearby Stow, Ohio has been producing temperature sensors since 1996. In 2002, they entered the NHRA market with their first team sponsorship. Since then, Blaze has continued to improve its exhaust probes with faster response times, rugged durability, and better prices. Additionally, Blaze has offered new products such as a clutch probe and, more recently, its black series which eliminates electrical interference. Blaze is committed to his relationship with the NHRA and its teams.
Jim Dunn Racing enjoyed the 2022 season thanks to fast times and a consistent Funny Car. Driver Jim Campbell recently set a career elapsed time record, and the team qualified well. Jim Dunn was also recently honored at an event at the Lions Automobilia Foundation and Museum honoring the roots of drag racing in Southern California.
A Blaze spokesperson noted ahead of the Norwalk race: “Jim Dunn Racing is the essence of NHRA – fun, family and racing. Jim and Diane Dunn and Jon Dunn embrace their team, sponsors and fans as part of their family. Blaze has been represented by Johnna Dunn as the face of Blaze Technical Services at the track, and Blaze is grateful for the opportunity to sponsor a quality team and a quality family.
