PDRA to Open 2015 Season at Texas Motorplex

PITTSBORO, NC (Mar. 5, 2015) – The world champions of the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) will begin their title defenses Mar. 19-21, in the season-opening PDRA Texas Nationals at the famed Texas Motorplex in Ennis, just south of Dallas. This will be the first visit to the Lone Star state for the all-eighth-mile series that will hold 10 races this year after expanding from eight events in its inaugural 2014 season.
“To be honest I can’t wait to bring PDRA drag racing to the great fans in Texas because I know they’re going to love what they see,” said PDRA Race Director Bob Harris, who recently was inducted into the North Carolina Drag Racing Hall of Fame. “We had a fantastic first year, but I already know this season is going to be even bigger and better. Kicking it off at such a prestigious track as the Texas Motorplex is perfect, too. It sends a message that professional eighth-mile drag racing deserves to be seen on the sport’s biggest and best stages.”
Headlined by the NAS Racing Pro Extreme and Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous classes, the PDRA also features Precision Turbo and Engine Pro Boost, Drag 965 Pro Extreme Motorcycle, MagnaFuel Top Sportsman, Top Dragster and two Huddleston Performance Jr. Dragster classes.
Pro Extreme World Champion Bubba Stanton from Potts Camp, Miss., will have his hands full fighting off the likes of teammate Jason Scruggs, past class champion Todd Tutterow and Texas drag racing stars Frankie “Mad Man” Taylor, Randell Reid and Gene Hector, who will debut a brand-new 2015 Corvette at the event.
Jason Harris won an incredible six events on his way to last year’s Pro Nitrous championship, but the Pittsboro, NC, native will be facing stiff competition from top rivals including Tommy Franklin, Pat Stoken and 2014 PDRA Pro Rookie of the Year Lizzy Musi, who also will debut a new race car at the Texas Nationals.
Tutterow, from Yadkinville, NC, won the Pro Boost championship last year, but his return to Pro Extreme in 2015 opens the title door to teammate Kevin Rivenbark, as well as Houston-based racer Todd Moyer, Gerry Capano and Jim Bell, among many others in what has turned out to be one of the PDRA’s biggest and most competitive classes.
Eric McKinney from Hamersville, Oh., and teammate Ashley Owens will lead the way in Pro Extreme Motorcycle, but Texas drag racing fans can expect to see the likes of Canada’s Terry Schweigert, past class champion Kim Morrell and veteran Billy Vose also challenging for two-wheeled supremacy.
The high-speed bracket racing Top Sportsman class will see surprise champion Dan Ferguson, who also was named last year’s PDRA Sportsman Driver of the Year, return to defend his crown against Ronnie “The King” Davis, Bruce Thrift, Aaron Glaser and Dylan Stott, again among many other top competitors. Likewise, reigning Top Dragster champ Travis Harvey will fend off elapsed time record holder Phil Esz and 2014 PDRA Sportsman Rookie of the Year Kyle Dvorak.
“We couldn’t be more excited and happy about going to a great facility like the Texas Motorplex,” Harris emphasized. “They say everything’s bigger in Texas and we aim to prove that’s true when we put on the biggest, baddest drag race in the state to kick off our 2015 season.”
Thursday Mar. 19 is reserved as an open test session day for all PDRA racers, with three rounds of qualifying for all classes beginning at 11 a.m. Friday, followed by a fourth and final qualifying session at 11 a.m. Saturday before eliminations begin at 3 p.m.
Children age 12 and under will be admitted free throughout the event, with $10 tickets available at the gate for Thursday’s test session. Friday and Saturday tickets are $30 each—though a $10 discount coupon for each day is available through the PDRA web site at www.PDRA660.com. Parking is free.

Season Opener at Texas Motorplex Just Weeks Away!

 

PITTSBORO, N.C. February 10, 2015:  The countdown is on to the Professional Drag Racers Association 2015 kickoff. The series inaugural season was full of historic wins, wild rides, blown records and incredible, side-by-side, professional eighth mile drag racing. Excitement is building for their second year – which promises even greater car counts and the best outlaw drag racing action in the country.

The season kicks off at the world famous Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Tx. on March 19-21 with the Inaugural Texas Nationals. All of the exciting PDRA classes will be there including Pro Extreme – the quickest and fastest doorslammers on the planet. Plus, fire-breathing Pro Nitrous and Pro Boost – the class where blowers and turbo-powered machines go head to head. For two-wheel fans, Extreme Pro Motorcycle is sure to deliver the best Pro Mod bike racing in the country.

The action continues with the PDRA Sportsman divisions. In Top Sportsman and Top Dragster, it’s the baddest of the bad dialing in their machines and judging the finish line while going over 170 MPH in four seconds or less. Also catch the next generation of professional pilots getting their experience in Pro and Top Junior Dragster.

The PDRA’s own brand of thrilling entertainment will descend on Texas Motorplex in just a few weeks. Affordable tickets for family fun are available now at www.pdra660.com.

We can’t wait to finally have a big PDRA event for our fans, partners and anyone who wants to see a blazing hot event with tons of speed and excitement.”

“We were extremely pleased with our first season and got rave reviews from fans,” added PDRA Race Director Bob Harris. “We’re looking forward to even bigger and better things this season. Kicking off the year at Texas Motorplex is exactly the statement we need to say that 2015 is going to be an incredible year for professional eighth mile drag racing!”

With so much on the line, the world class engine builders and teams will be letting it all hang out in Texas! Will it happen there or will they crush it at the ROCK?!!  “You can buy the whole seat, but you’ll only need the edge!!!”
