NHRDA RETURNS WILL BULKED UP SCHEDULE FOR TEXAS DIESEL NATIONALS
ENNIS, Texas (March 18, 2013) – One of the most popular events on the Texas Motorplex schedule each year, without question, is the NHRDA Texas Diesel Nationals. The parking lot is filled with Texas trucks that bring fans who wildly cheer on the power of the diesel in all forms.
The NHRDA Texas Diesel Nationals returns to the Motorplex for the first of two NHRDA shows in 2013, on April 13. Drag racing begins at 10 a.m. with six classes: Top Diesel, Pro Stock, Pro Street, Super Street, Super Diesel and Sportsman.
The NHRDA, however, is more than just racing. The event also features a Show-n-Shine display area, Dyno Competition, Burnout Contest and new this year, Sled Pulling.
NHRDA will be kicking off their Sled Pulling Series that will feature three classes of diesel trucks, including 2.6, 3.0, and Super Stock. Sled Pullers will earn NHRDA National Champion Points at all of the sanctioned Sled Pulls and will earn double points when the series returns to Texas Motorplex in September for the World Finals Sled Pull.
Gates open at 9 a.m. and prices are $25 for adults, youngsters 6 -12 years old are only $10, and kids 5 & under are free.
Texas Motorplex was the first all-concrete stadium-style drag racing facility ever constructed. Built in 1986, Texas Motorplex has been the place of many drag racing milestones and world record performances. The Billy Meyer-owned facility hosts a number of racing and car show events between March and November each year and also features the Champion’s Club – an 11,000 square-foot facility – that serves fully catered events throughout the year.
