Monroe Supporting NSSS Series Opener in Brisbane

13/12/10…NASR National Office

Since it began, the Carline Mufflers National Super Sedan Series has been instrumental in luring national, and international, companies into the world of speedway sponsorship. The NSSS has introduced some of the biggest brands to what is undoubtedly the most exciting form of motorsport on the planet.  This tradition continues in 2010/2011 with confirmation that Monroe Shock Absorbers will be supporting the championship this year as naming rights sponsor of the opening round of competition at Brisbane International Speedway.

Founded by August F. Meyer in Monroe, Michigan in 1916 as the Brisk Blast Manufacturing Company, the business began life as a manufacturer of tyre pumps to cater to the fledgling automotive industry.   With rapid growth and expansion – sales climbed to over 5 000 per week – and a partnership formed with local auto dealer Charles Meyer in 1918, the Monroe Auto Equipment Company was born.

In 1928, the first Monroe shock eliminator was introduced and within 25 years the Monroe-Matic – the first double action shock absorber – was being used by most American auto manufacturers.  The company went international in 1964 and soon became renowned as the world leader in both original equipment and aftermarket ride control, a reputation that remains today.  In 1980, Monroe began manufacturing its first struts and soon thereafter produced its first gas charged shock absorber. Since then, groundbreaking products such as Sensa-Trac, Reflex, Gas Magnum TDT and GT Sport have been developed, cementing Monroe’s position as the global leader in ride control. 

The support of Monroe is a huge coup for the Carline Mufflers National Super Sedan Series as Monroe is an iconic brand and the leading authority on shock absorber technology. Monroe manufactures shock absorbers that suit the vast majority of vehicle types, providing safety and control for vehicles on, and off, our roads.  In fact, today more Australian motorists use Monroe shock absorbers than any other brand.

The opening round of the 2010/2011 Carline National Super Sedan Series, proudly sponsored by Monroe Shock Absorbers, will be contested at Brisbane International Speedway on Monday, December 27.  A strong field of local stars is expected to take on the contracted series stars in what will be a spectacular start to the championship.
