InterPhase Entertainment, LLC has signed NHRA Top Fuel driver and 2020 Rookie of the Year Justin Ashley to help grow his brand and bring awareness to his program. InterPhase Entertainment will represent Ashley in all sponsorship development and procurement areas as well as networking opportunities in television, film, and digital avenues. InterPhase Entertainment will work to align Ashley with corporations, marketing firms and causes that align with his diverse interests both on and off the track.
“We are excited to have Justin Ashley with us as we broaden our business portfolio,” said Ryan Johnston, President and CEO of InterPhase Entertainment. “Justin is a highly marketable young driver who is a standout, and as far as I’m concerned, the future of the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series. Justin just not only won in Texas a few weeks ago, but he just broke the track record in Bristol with a blistering 334.48 mph run in 3.69 seconds. We are looking forward to diversifying and building his brand around the world.”
The two-time NHRA national event winner is a second-generation driver from Plainview, NY. At twenty-six years old, he is a future star in the Top Fuel ranks of the NHRA. During his rookie season of 2020 Justin was hyper-focused on being his best, producing the quickest average reaction time in the Top Fuel class and finishing the season in the Top Ten.
Ashley earned his first win in the NHRA Top Fuel category at Indianapolis last year at the Summernationals. Earlier this month, Ashley earned his second Top Fuel win at the Texas NHRA Fall Nationals in Dallas. He currently sits third in the NHRA Camping World Top Fuel Championship point standings with two events remaining on the 2021 calendar.
When Ashley isn’t at the track, he serves as President of Ashley Developers, a real estate investment organization dedicated to the rehabilitation of distressed properties. He spends his days searching for new properties and overseeing the improvements made to his current holdings.
“Joining the InterPhase Entertainment team gives our race program the best opportunity for sustainable success on and off the racetrack,” said Ashley, who has been instrumental in securing sponsorship deals the past two years. “The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series is a tremendous value, and our plan has always
been predicated on communicating that value, structuring a strategic business plan, and building a brand that ensures successful return on investment. InterPhase Entertainment is going to help us take our game to the next level by doing that tenfold. I cannot wait to begin our relationship together.”
