California Pest Management to sponsor Veteran Nitro Funny Car driver Jeff Arend
Veteran Nitro Funny Car driver Jeff Arend will drive the Nitro Funny Car owned by the Russo family at the Auto Club NHRA Finals at the Pomona Fairplex November 14 – 17, 2019. California Pest Management will sponsor a press opportunity for photos and interviews of the car owners, Peter and Helen Russo along with the La Verne based Driver, Jeff Arend Wednesday November 13, 2019 from 11 am to 1 pm at the California Pest Management offices (908 Palomares Ave, La Verne, CA). Corner Butcher Shop will be serving complimentary sliders.
“I’m definitely looking forward to it,” Arend said. “We bought some later model cylinder heads for it at the end of last year had them checked out and then bought all new parts for them. Our original plan was to go to Las Vegas (Oct. 31-Nov. 3) and Pomona (Nov. 14-17) to end the year and then we decided to also go to Dallas. That way we can kind of test a bit with these new heads and make a partial run or two. It certainly helped that Jim Harmon from California Pest Management came on board and helped us out financially as a major associate sponsor.” Arend also is competing in the California Hustler Funny Car in the Nostalgia Series, winning second place in the series this year.
