The sport of drag racing was literally born out of the hot rodding craze of the 1940’s and 1950’s in southern California, and even today, more than a half a century later, hot rodding and the straight-line world are still intricately linked to one another. Just visit any nostalgia drag race, and you’ll find a plethora of classic automobiles and show cars partaking in the event.
Our friends over at Ron Francis Wiring are one of the most well regarded names in the wiring marketplace for the drag racing, muscle car, and street rodding markets, and they take each and everyone one of the venues they cater to seriously. So if you’re a drag racer, young or old, and you’re into the classic street rods that helped create the sport we know and love, you’re likely to run across the Ron Francis team at an event near you.
Ron Francis Wiring, with a trailer full of product and a support staff ready to answer your questions and help troubleshoot problems, attends several drag races and rodding events across the country each year, and this season, they’ve got 11 events in total on their calendar, two of which they’ve already attended, in Indianapolis and Mechanicsville, Md.
