Yep you heard it right SIG is sponsoring an NHRA top fuel rail dragster. This is very very cool. Most of these run a quarter mile in just over 3 seconds at near 300 mph. This rail job has a black paint job with the SIG logo and a P-320 graphic on the side.

This video was taken just outside SIG headquarters in New Hampshire. Turn the volume up when you play the video!

    What a GD waste of $.

      Maybe you should start your own company based on your principles and run Sig out of business?

      Sorry, it just seems like everyone who thinks some company should be handing out money like candy at Halloween isn’t actually running a company…

        By the looks of things, Sig will be going out of a business on its own. I would have thought they would aim for the more affluent crowd in their marketing. Pure derp.

        • Haven’t been to many drag strips have you?

          There are extremely affluent people there racing cars with sometimes in excess of $100k just in parts dumped into it. Red neck =/= poor.

          I don’t know the exact details of the marketing relationship, but it is my understanding that this is part of the Lucas Oil/SIG marketing relationship that was publicly announced a few weeks ago.

          The drag races I have been to have quite a few 6 figure motor homes in the camping sections over looking the track. And driving around on their custom made golf carts. I think they can afford a few Sigs.

    • What in the world do I have to do with SIG sponsoring drag racer.
      SIG employees are paid pretty well from what they say. You might notice the employees are the ones cheering when they had it fired up.

  • Hell. Yes.
    Racing and guns: my two favorite things united 🙂

    • Nergyl

    • The trollbait is strong with this one.

    could have at least mentioned who the driver was in the write up…

    If I hadn’t seen the pics I’d have pictured it having a high center of mass, being metallic-rainbow-colored and having sculptures of equestrian spurs with rowels on the back.

    I would rather they spent some money fixing the useless 556Xi-R that I own then dumping it into drag racing. 🙁

      So you didn’t do your homework before your purchase and you’re mad at the company?
      Way to accept responsibility.

    uh…. rails (top fuel dragsters– my age is showing) only run 1000 ft now, not a quarter mile…. these dragsters run under 4 seconds and over, sometimes well over 300mph for the 1000 feet.
