Broughton Motorsports “Shock Treatment” Reveal

Mick and Christine Broughton have become a big part of the NTPA Grand National Modified Four Wheel Drive class with their 1969 Dodge D-200.  The VED/Schmidt Hemi powered entry out of Armada, Michigan was a big threat throughout the season of 2023. Had the they not missed the first hook of the season, the rush at the end of the points battle may have even looked differently, with a third truck heading to the final pull vying for the title.  

As the story in the numbers tells us, “Shock Treatment”, a name created by Mick’s parents lost 59 points to eventual winner Mark Mangan, and Runner-up Jake Zaring, at the opening Grand National hook of the season in Farley, Iowa. Mangan and Zaring split the weekends first and second place positions. The math also tells us that at the end of the season, Mick had clawed himself back into the seventh position, twelve points out of the coveted top five in the points for an Enderle Pull-off birth and fifty seven points out of first.  The math is true, it tells us that after the initial hook in Farley, Mick gained on all parties with his first ever Grand National win in Tomah, Wisconsin, and three second place finishes. 

With confidence in a new engine package and a bright hope for 2024 in their setup, Mick and Christine decided to make a change to the vinyl wrap adorning their already fan favorite Dodge. 

As the owners of Race Wrapz, a graphics design and vinyl art business, the Broughton’s wanted to showcase the immense ability their company has by bringing an all new look to the coveted National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky.  “Louisville is the biggest pull we go to besides Bowling Green.  The difference is Louisville is invitation only, so to be here is the biggest honor of our season. Changing the wrap and revealing it here in Louisville is the ultimate honor.  We thought this would be the best location to showcase the talent if our company, Race Wrapz” added Mick. 

The new look features some bright colors and a mad scientist, which is a throw back to Micks first ever four wheel drive truck “Black Magic”.  The scientist features a goatee reminiscent of Micks goatee as well. 

The truck is set to be unveiled in the coming moments as it rolls in to Broadbent Arena to stage for tomorrow nights competition.  Twelve of the best trucks in the country, from eight different states,  have accepted the invitation from NFMS Committee.
