Nicole Lyons: Outperformer Documentary

 If you like watching drag racing shows, check out Royal Purple's Outperformer documentary series featuring NHRA drag racer Nicole Lyons.

 According to Royal Purple's press release:

"The Royal Purple mini-documentary airs as Lyons continues to break down barriers; becoming the first female driver to compete in race series for both the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) together in one race season. In addition to tackling two separate race series and their respective schedules, Lyons also holds the distinction of being the first African American women to race in the NHRA and American Drag Racing League (ADRL) Top Sportsman classes."

An accomplished builder and restorer in her own right, Lyons also owns and operates her own restoration shop, Cole Muscle Cars, in Sylmar, Calif., which specializes in 1960-70 muscle cars and 1955-59 classic cars.   

Just as with last year’s documentaries, Royal Purple’s 2013 Outperformer Series will focus on those who triumph in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds to stand alone, inspire, and become the best in their respective fields.

 Two additional mini-documentaries featuring other ‘Outperformers’ will air later in the year and can be viewed by visiting the Royal Purple website, The videos, which average five minutes in length, will be promoted with 15-second clips on broadcast television and online.

“We received tremendous positive feedback with last year’s series spotlighting Dylan Kwasniewski, Roland Sands and Miss Geico Racing,” said Royal Purple Marketing Director, Randy Fisher. “We thought it was important to continue to identify other leaders within segments we’re a part of and show enthusiasts that Outperformers come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life.”
