Tens of thousands of fans will make their way through the gates of Lucas Oil Dragway this Labor Day Weekend here in Indianapolis at the Chevrolet Performance NHRA US Nationals. They’ll take in the races, and the chance to go through the pit area meeting their favorite drivers and seeing their favorite cars and teams, before heading back to their homes or hotels.
What goes unnoticed to many are the real unsung heroes of the weekend. The people that keep the event moving when issues arise, and most importantly, keep the drivers, teams, and fans safe.
The NHRA Safety Safari works tirelessly throughout the weekend to keep the race on schedule. In a completely unpredictable sport, these guys are out there in full fire suits in the heat of the summer, doing everything they can to try and do just that. These safety workers have to be on their A Game. They need to move quickly so they don’t lose the interest of their fans. Nothing is worse than a track shutting down due to track cleanup or repair.
Imagine the amount of pressure these guys are under. Not only do they need to do their job, they have to be efficient and thorough. Reliability is a MUST. No question about it. Meaning, their tools they use have to be up to the task and ready to be used at a moment’s notice.
It’s simple to say that most track workers are the best in the business, and what other brand of truck would they trust to help pull the load other than the “Official Truck of the NHRA,” the Chevrolet.
This amazing truck does everything asked of it by this group of incredibly hard-working individuals. Arriving at the track before the sun comes up each morning, and leaving long after the fans have made their way out of the gates, the Safety Safari trusts the Silverado to be there day-in-and-day-out, and it never lets them down.
The dependability and capability of these trucks are paramount to the legendary safety team performing its trackside duties, and the NHRA trusts no other truck to handle its most important tasks. From the Silverado, to the Suburban, to the HD, and the highly-anticipated new Colorado, Chevrolet trucks have helped Americans get their jobs done from decade to decade and from one generation to the next.
