The Circle K Funny Car Gets Back On Track in Denver
During the debut of the Circle K Funny Car at the Atlanta NHRA national event in May, the car’s engine exploded and sent the Mopar body 100 feet into the air. Jim Dunn Racing driver, John Hale, experienced no injuries and coasted down the track being slowed by parachutes.
Since then a new Funny Car body has been prepared with the same bright red graphics and the highly recognizable Circle K logo for the upcoming NHRA Mopar Mile High Nationals in Denver.
Drag Racing Hall of Fame team owner Jim Dunn and driver, John Hale will be hosting an autograph session and appearance with the Circle K Funny Car on Thursday, July 21 from 4:00-6:00pm at the Circle K convenience store located at 411 W. Florida Ave. Denver, CO 80223.
The Circle K Funny Car is part of a season long promotion with Jim Dunn Racing and Oberto Beef Jerky. Circle K convenience stores surrounding race markets will feature Oberto Beef Jerky products and host driver autograph sessions with the Circle K Mopar Funny car on display at selected stores during race weeks.
Friday, July 22, the Circle K Funny Car will begin qualifying at the NHRA Mopar Mile High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway, with additional qualifying sessions on Saturday the 23rd, and racing eliminations on Sunday the 24th.
