AHDRA President Craig Tharpe says this year's Cajun Nitro Nationals will be a huge celebration for the many riders, sponsors, and fans that have supported AHDRA throughout the 2012 season. "We've all endured grueling weather conditions, a hectic schedule, and the many triumphs and disappointments that go hand-in-hand with racing," Tharpe commented.

We are even more pumped up for a bigger and better 2013 season."
