OCALA, FL (January 10, 2023) --- NHRA Top Fuel championship contender and rising star Josh Hart announced a multi-year extension with long-time marketing partner Advance Auto Parts for the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season and beyond. Hart will campaign his 11,000 horsepower Top Fuel dragster at every NHRA national event representing Advance Auto Parts as well as their TechNet Professional Automotive Services.
“Advance Auto Parts has been with me throughout my career in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Fuel,” said Hart, who finished seventh in Top Fuel in 2022. “They are an amazing company to work with and the TechNet Professional Automotive Service team is the best in the business. We will be doing a lot of exciting things in 2023 and most importantly we are focusing on making another run for the Top Fuel championship. Their support is invaluable and we are thrilled to be working with them again.”
Part of the Advance Auto Parts portfolio of brands, TechNet Professional Automotive Service features a network of more than 15,000 repair shops across the U.S. and Canada. TechNet shops are locally owned and focused on delivering exceptional customer care and service. Shops that are part of TechNet Nation employ highly skilled and trained staff while also using quality parts from Carquest, DieHard® batteries and other leading brands. Shops also participate in important charitable initiatives in the communities they serve, such as Brakes for Breasts.
Last season racing the full 22-race schedule for the first time Hart raced to two final rounds, qualified for the NHRA Countdown playoffs and finished in the Top Ten well ahead of other established teams. During his rookie campaign in 2021, Hart won the first event of his career, the historic NHRA Gatornationals, as well as a playoff race during the Carolina Nationals in September. Hart has established himself as a rising star in the NHRA and a championship contender for the 2023 Top Fuel world title.
Hart and the Advance Auto Part and TechNet Top Fuel team will start their season at the historic Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida, March 9-12. The last time the NHRA season began in Gainesville Hart won his first Top Fuel national event.
