At the Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona, Jim Dunn Racing will run a specially designed Funny Car body, paying tribute to a partnership that goes back to the beginnings of NHRA: Jim Dunn Racing and Mooneyes.
“It’s great that we can do this at Mooneyes' home track in Pomona,” said Jon Dunn, business manager for Jim Dunn Racing. “My dad has always maintained that as long as he is racing, his car will have the Mooneyes logo on it.”
Guests of Mooneyes will also have a front-row seat to all the action in the Jim Dunn Racing pit with a hospitality area sponsored by longtime supporters Murray Co. and Koppl.
The Mooneyes logo is one of the most recognized in racing. The popular speed shop, begun in the 1950s by Dean Moon in the garage of his parents' café, continues to be a powerhouse in motorsports today. In addition to the presence on the Jim Dunn Funny Car, Mooneyes will have its merchandise trailer on the Midway to sell its popular products to fans.
Jim Dunn Racing’s primary sponsor, Grime Boss, will take an associate role at this race and will sell all its popular heavy-duty cleaning wipes on Nitro Alley at a discounted rate for NHRA fans.
Jim Dunn Racing driver Jeff Arend will be at the La Verne Fan Fest Saturday, Nov. 2, in Old Town La Verne, Calif., leading up to the Auto Club NHRA Finals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, Nov. 7-10. He will also sign autographs Nov. 8 in the Top Eliminator Club.
