“It is an honor to display the Schaeffler green in the United States again for a third season,” said Blake Alexander. “We center our NHRA race promotions around these 12,000 horsepower machines and the people who use the Schaeffler, LUK, and INA automotive parts. I pride myself in connecting with the technicians and shop owners alike who use Schaeffler products daily. Adding Schaeffler's quality parts and innovation to our team has helped us immensely and I am excited to chase another win with Schaeffler at Norwalk.”
