9th Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion presented by Auto Club,
June 16-18 at Beech Bend Raceway Park

BOWLING GREEN, KY. – This year’s Justice Brothers Car Care Products Reunion Spotlight will shine on the Cluster Busters Hot Rod Club of Indianapolis for their contribution to drag racing history. Founded in 1948, the Cluster Busters is hailed as the third-oldest, active car club in the United States. They will be honored at the annual Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion presented by Auto Club at Beech Bend Raceway Park, June 16-18.


For the ninth consecutive year, Justice Brothers will sponsor the “Reunion Spotlight” at the annual Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion slated for June 16-18 at Beech Bend Raceway Park. “We’re looking forward to another great Reunion in Bowling Green. It’s an immense joy to uncover some of motorsports history’s unsung heroes, and this year we are proud to honor one of the longest living car clubs in the U.S., the Cluster Busters,” said Justice Brothers President & CEO Ed Justice Jr.

In 1954, the Cluster Busters became a Charter Club of the
National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). They advocated safe driving and organized racing on the track instead of the street, and helped change the negative connotation of hot rodding. The Club also organized the first drags in Indiana in the summer of 1955, and formed the Indianapolis Timing Association. One of their tangible contributions was the club’s help in designing and organizing Indianapolis Raceway Park (now the Lucas Oil Raceway, home of the NHRA Mac Tools U.S. Nationals).

Since then, the Cluster Busters have continually remained active in hot rodding and drag racing. Some of their members race in the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series, including Mark Vaught with his potent A/Fuel dragster entry. The Club currently has over 30 active members. The Club’s mission has remained the same since their inception: to promote safe driving and racing for all ages and present hot rodding as a safe and responsible form of an automotive hobby.

The Cluster Busters along with Grand Marshal Bruce Larson and five other Honorees will be honored at a special reception on Thursday, June 16, 7 p.m. at the Holiday Inn University Plaza, host hotel for the event. Admission to the Honoree Reception is always free and open to the public. For more information about the Cluster Busters, visit

The Cluster Busters members will roll out to the Reunion in some of their personal hot rods and a 28-foot trailer filled with Cluster Busters photos and memorabilia. Make sure you stop by the Justice Brothers Car Care Products tent in the Vendor Midway. They will be signing autographs and basking in Reunion excitement all weekend long.

In addition to the sponsorship at the Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion, Justice Brothers sponsors the Reunion Spotlight at the NHRA California Hot Rod Reunion. This year will be Justice Brothers, Inc. fourteenth year in a row that they have sponsored the Reunion Spotlight in Bakersfield, California.

Along with being a manufacturer and worldwide distributor of over 100 car care products Justice Brothers, Inc. is known for their one-of-a-kind racing museum. For more information on Justice Brothers, visit
