Empaco Equipment MOPAR Dodge Challenger Drag Pak


After hanging up his helmet in 2006, former NHRA Pro Stock racer Mark Pawuk, known as ‘The Cowboy,’ returned to the driver’s seat in 2018 to compete in NHRA’s Factory Stock Showdown Series. Pawuk campaigns the Empaco Equipment MOPAR Dodge Challenger Drag Pak for Don Schumacher Racing’s two-car championship Sportsman team.

A family effort, Pawuk’s son, Kyle, serves as one of his father’s key crew members, and his daughter, Kassandra, a hospitality staff member at Don Schumacher Racing, never misses an opportunity to cheer her father on from the starting line.

While competing in Pro Stock, Pawuk roped in six victories before stepping out of the seat. Since his return to NHRA competition, the veteran racer has earned two No. 1 qualifiers (Indianapolis, 2019 and St. Louis, 2018) and two final round appearances (Norwalk and Indianapolis, 2018).
