In 2017, Hot Rodders of Tomorrow will partner with Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series.
Hot Rodders of Tomorrow (HROT) has announced the addition of the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Junior Dragster Series. In 2017, HROT will partner with Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series (MJSS), which is run by Dave Beimfohr, and is currently scheduled to feature nine events. Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series is greatly supported by Trevor Wiggins from COMP Cams and three-time NHRA Top Fuel Champion Antron Brown. With its partnership with the Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series, HROT will be well on its way to establishing a nationwide program for Junior Dragsters. Both Brown’s and Wiggins’ children currently compete in the Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series.
MJSS will bring an additional 600 students into the HROT program. With the growth of HROT and the addition of the Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series, the HROT program will have approximately 1,600 students enrolled in 2017.
“This new alliance between HROT and the MJSS will allow us to reach a much larger segment of our young enthusiasts, giving them more opportunities to become involved with this great industry and sport. This is just the beginning,” Beimfohr said.
HROT will use this blueprint to expand the series over the next few years to become a Nationwide Jr. Dragster Program.
“The merger between Hot Rodders and Protect the Harvest Midwest Jr. Super Series will extend the reach of this fantastic program,” said Lee Robinson, a national sales manager at Hedman Hedders. “The more kids that you can reach out to and show there are several different opportunities in the automotive world, the better.”
When informed of HROT merging with the Jr. Dragster Series, Antron Brown commented, “MJSS teaches great life lessons using science, technology, engineering and mathematics as its backbone. That is why the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow and MJSS are a perfect fit.”
