Dave Connolly will get a big boost in his bid for the national Stock championship after inking a major sponsorship deal with Berger Chevrolet and its online parts division, GMPartsNow.com.
Connolly, a decorated driver and crew chief with 27 national event victories and numerous divisional wins, will be driving and tuning the '12 COPO Camaro that he recently raced to a semifinal finish in Charlotte. The car will continue to sport its Grumpy's Toy tribute paint scheme, a salute to Connolly's mentor, Bill "Grumpy" Jenkins, that will take up new residence on the rear fenders, and the doors will be adorned with GMPartsNow.com.
"We've had a great relationship with Berger Chevrolet since 2004, and this is an extension of that," said team owner Victor Cagnazzi. "We're anxious to let the millions of NHRA fans out there know about GMPartsNow.com. I recently visited the facility, and they have more than 60,000 square feet of warehouse space and 6 million dollars in inventory specifically dedicated to GM parts. They stock the full gamut of GM parts, from mechanical and powertrain to collision, performance, and outlet parts."
