Foundation Chairman Traci Hrudka commented, “After reviewing John’s proposal, the Board felt that he and his Mullin Production Group had the understanding of drag racing and the performance aftermarket and the passion they carry for the racers, the enthusiasts and the industry that this historical documentary requires.

The Board felt John’s experience producing network television productions of drag racing and other motorsports during the period from the mid 70’s to the mid 1990s gave him an inside perspective into the racers and other personalities, as well as the performance aftermarket necessary to tell the audience how the sport and industry grew.”
