EXCELLENCE. ENTHUSIASM. EXPERIENCE.
These three words are amongst the most important in the World Doorslammer Nationals (WDN) vocabulary. There’s no questioning our passion and enthusiasm for drag racing, nor our care and concern for racers, fans and our event partners. In everything we do – from the look and feel of our events to the way they are portrayed by our friends in the media – this level of dedication, attention to detail and enthusiasm must be expressed.
This guide is designed not to inhibit or control the efforts and content created surrounding WDN, but ensure any and everything put in front of the world is representative of our aforementioned enthusiasm and commitment to excellence in event experiences. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact our team for guidance or assistance.

CTECH World Doorslammer Nationals presented by JEGS
The title of our event is to be used in its entirety – including sponsor names – as often as possible. To avoid redundancy in content, it is acceptable to shorten the event title to “Doorslammer Nats” or “WDN”, but only if the event has been clearly identified in full previously in said piece of content. Consistency in regards to the name of our event is critical to the brand and industry standing, as well as for delivering value to our sponsors.
CTECH – All caps.
JEGS – All caps.
PHOTOGRAPHIC STYLES & EXPECTATIONS
Photography from the CTECH World Doorslammer Nationals presented by JEGS should convey the high-energy and enthusiasm for which our team, our racers and our fans are well known for. Our images should reflect our commitment to excellence in event production, and be respectful to the time, energy and financial commitment made by so many to make events like WDN possible.
Due to the week-long nature of our event, it would be difficult to ensure every photo is taken in front of a capacity crowd, but we ask our partners and friends in the media to, again, be respectful and contribute to the growth of WDN. Avoid posting photos of sparsely populated grandstands to social media. We are proud of the access we grant to approved media members, but ask that you portray our event in the best possible light at all times.
The World Doorslammer Nationals logo represents our efforts to bring racing event production into the 21st century. It should be used consistently and not modified in any way, shape or form without the consent and approval of Wes Buck.
It is important to not violate the space around the WDN logo. Allowing the logo to stand out by itself will ensure that the WDN brand is easily identifiable. As it will be used in varying sizes, we ask that you use your best judgment to allow the logo room to breathe.
Whether it’s on cars, merchandising, online, in publication or on social media, the WDN logo is adaptable to any situation. Please reference the above specifics with each logo variation to make the best possible choice when using the WDN logo.
The WDN logo should always be used in its approved format. It should never be modified. Altering the logo weakens the integrity and consistency of the event and the brand as a whole.
DO NOT USE OLDER VERSIONS OF THE LOGO
DO NOT SQUISH OR STRETCH THE LOGO
DO NOT CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE LOGO
DO NOT ANGLE THE LOGO
DO NOT ALTER THE THICKNESS OR ADD BORDER/STROKE TO THE LOGO
DO NOT USE THE LOGO AS A PATTERN
DO NOT OVERLAP THE LOGO
