AHDRA is celebrating its 35th year in 2012! While 2011 was a season that contained some of the most exciting championship title contests in the history of the sanction, AHDRA anticipates that the 2012 season will excel with even more of the excitement, energy, and adrenaline that can come only from this extreme sport. With 16 different classes ranging from 230-mph Top Fuel bikes to the highly competitive ET class, racers have a wide range
of competition available to them at AHDRA.
AHDRA began as a club racing organization in the late seventies and continued over the years under many different names. All Harley Drag Racing Association (AHDRA) became the official licensed name for the sanction in 1991. AHDRA has seen phenomenal growth over the years, with racer participation that started with 50-60 entries to events that now range with anywhere from 250 to 450 entries. Motorcycle drag racing fans have increasingly filled the stands over the years, giving AHDRA a range of 5,000 to 12,500 attendees at each event.
This remarkable sport is considered one of the most exceptional in today's motorsports marketplace. Each event ticket is a "Pit Pass" that allows fans to circulate the pits, meet the race teams, and gain an up-close look at their high-powered machines. AHDRA racers and their crews are always willing to spend time with their fans to answer questions or sign autographs.
Our dedication to professionalism and safety has fueled the sanction's growth throughout the years. The positive response has resulted in valuable relationships with loyal sponsors such as AHDRA Series Sponsor, Screamin' Eagle Performance Parts. Thanks largely to the support of our many sponsors; AHDRA has the largest payout in the history of Harley drag racing at well over one million dollars in cash and product.
We have an exciting year of racing coming up and we believe we have positioned ourselves for the best for all concerned. For more on AHDRA, visit us online at www.ahdra.com or call us at 336-924-2095.
