Quarter Mile Foundation names John Mullin to produce documentary pilot


The Board of Directors of the Quarter Mile Foundation has named veteran, award winning motorsports television producer John B. Mullin to create an initial pilot for the PROJECT 1320 documentary.

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.

“John asked penetrating questions about the Foundation’s mission, and what the Foundation wanted from the documentary. 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.”

Mullin Production Group (MPG) is headquartered in Westlake Village, Calif., and is a producer of major network motorsports programming including, most recently, the Champ Car World Series (ABC, ESPN, NBC, CBS), and, in association with Chet Burks Productions, the AMA Superbike series for CBS Sports Network. MPG is noted for its vast experience with all forms of motorsport, and for its approach to topflight production that places the emphasis on storytelling, and building the marketplace presence of the sport being covered.

“We are excited to be again working with the great people of Drag Racing, a sport that is at the very heart of the 20th Century American experience. I always considered it a privilege to be permitted to tell the story of such dynamic people, and to be invited back into the staging lanes is exhilarating.”
