Candlewood Suites, IHG’s midscale extended-stay brand, has partnered Kalitta Motorsports, one of the most accomplished teams in the history of NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) Professional Drag Racing, as a major associate and primary sponsor for the team in the 2011 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series.
