Chosen Payments Named Preferred Credit Card Processor of NHRA

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) announced that Chosen Payments, a Moorpark based national credit card processor, has been named as the preferred credit card processor of NHRA.

Chosen Payments are experts in credit card processing, check processing, gift/loyalty, ATM, merchant cash advance, mobile applications and other payment processing and financial services. Their focus is being a partner in success. And they treat each and every relationship like a true partnership, while using decades of industry experience to facilitate growth for their merchants.

“Chosen Payments has a large presence within the automotive industry and NHRA being the largest association in the business, it was a natural marriage for this partnership to come together,” said Jeff Brodsly, chief executive officer of Chosen Payments. Chosen Payments was established in 2008 by Brodsly, a lifelong Moorpark resident.

Credit card processing for NHRA’s corporate headquarters and the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum will be managed by Chosen Payments, including all four NHRA owned tracks (Atlanta Dragway, Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, Gainesville Raceway and Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis). The company also manages credit card processing for Texas Motorplex, an NHRA sanctioned track and host facility to the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event contested October 12-15.

“This business partnership will prove to be mutually beneficial to both parties,” said Brad Gerber, NHRA vice president and chief development officer. “Chosen Payments is sure to provide first class customer service and support for our customers during the year.”

Additionally, Chosen Payments has put together an NHRA member benefit package which will reduce costs and increase profits of businesses owned by NHRA members.

“The value brought by both Chosen Payments and NHRA, which will be rolled out to the membership, is going to be a major win for all business owners associated with NHRA,” said Richard Scalesse, partner of Chosen Payments. For more information about Chosen Payments, visit their website at //
