AHDRA Announces 2013 AHDRA Championship Series
Pfafftown, NC, August 6, 2012
The All Harley Drag Racing Association is pleased to announce that the 2013 AHDRA Championship Series schedule will comprise six races, beginning March 9-10, 2013 in Gainesville, Florida, and concluding on October 12-13, 2013 in Rockingham, North Carolina.
Compared to previous years, AHDRA has reduced its schedule to six dates to focus on its historically strongest events, which AHDRA director Craig Tharpe explains is partly a result of the recent announcement of the formation of the NHRA Screamin' Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series, a 10-race series that will compete at NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series divisional events beginning in 2013.
Tharpe noted that while AHDRA has reduced the number of events in its Championship Series, the new NHRA series will provide an additional ten race dates for competitors in several AHDRA classes to compete in. At least one NHRA Screamin' Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series race will be held in each of the seven NHRA divisions, with the remaining three race locations to be selected based on scheduling and the best competition opportunities for Harley-Davidson motorcycle racers. The final series schedule will be announced later this year following the 2012 NHRA awards banquet in November.
The NHRA Screamin' Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series events will host five AHDRA classes, including Top Fuel Nitro Harley, Pro Gas, Street Pro, Hot Street and Draggin' Bagger. AHDRA will continue to host these classes along with its normal class lineup at all of its championship events.
"Harley-Davidson and Screamin' Eagle Performance Parts are pleased to continue our commitment to the AHDRA as a presenting sponsor of six events in the AHDRA Championship Series," said Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover. "Combined with the announcement of the new NHRA Screamin' Eagle series, the opportunities for sportsman drag racers to showcase the power and performance of Harley-Davidson motorcycles at racing venues nationwide has never been greater."
