Meritor Extends with Noakes Racing

The London-based NHRA Top Alcohol Funny Car team, Paul Noakes Racing, has announced the extension and signing of a multi-year sponsorship deal with Meritor Motorsports…

This partnership will provide the Noakes Team with the resources to challenge for the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series’ divisional championship as well as contend at the NHRA national event racing level.

“This is a perfect fit for us. Meritor is a first class provider of systems to the transportation industry and their customers are avid race fans,” said Team Manager Jay Johnston. “My knowledge of the industry and passion for racing will make this a very successful relationship.”

Long-time sponsor Harman Heavy Vehicle Specialists, along with Wakefield Canada and NTN, continue to support this effort. The team remains the same as last year, led by tuner Les Mellows and driver/owner Paul Noakes.
