With NHRA Member Tracks across the country kicking off their seasons, the long-running NHRA Summit Racing Series is once again officially underway. As has been the case since 2000, the season will culminate with the crowning of four NHRA Summit National Champions at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona during the Auto Club NHRA Finals.

The series, which boasts more than $1,000,000 in payouts throughout the year — with more than $600,000 up from grabs between the division finals and national championship – will provide the chance for four grassroots racers to earn the biggest title of their career and be crowned NHRA Summit Racing Series National Champions.

In 2015, the number of racers competing at and vying for a national championship title will increase to 32 as an eighth spot has been added to each of the four classes (Super Pro, Pro, Sportsman, and Motorcycle). A special drawing will take place later this year to determine which division will send the additional racer in each class.

The winner of the drawing, chosen from among the Race of Champions winners from Divisions 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, as well as the event winners from Divisions 6 and 7, will advance to the national championship as the eighth competitor. As always, each of the division champions (the Race of Champions winners in Divisions 6 and 7) will advance and set the eight-car field.

This true grassroots program is open to virtually anyone with a car, truck, or motorcycle who wants to try their hand at drag racing at one of approximately 120 NHRA Member Tracks across North America.

More than 300,000 racers nationwide compete in a variety of classes at their local NHRA Member Tracks for points leading to track championships and the right to represent their track at one of seven division finals, with winners advancing to the national championship and the chance to earn the title of NHRA Summit Racing Series National Champion.

Nearly 3,500 racers will compete at the division finals, with 32 advancing to the national championship hosted at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona which includes a dinner banquet for them and their families at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum prior to the racing action on the track. Eliminations are held on Sunday in conjunction with final eliminations for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and the Winner’s Circle celebration.

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

“Hosting the season opener for PDRA is thrilling,” Texas Motorplex President/GM, Gabrielle Stevenson, said. “This is going to be the biggest Pro Mod race in Texas this year and our fans are going to love this event. 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!”

There is also a bonus for the first driver in the famous Pro Nitrous class who breaks into the 3.60s in 2015. 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!!!”
