(Photos by Benoit Pigeon) – The 2017 PDRA drag racing season is in full swing now with two events having been run. Our man Benoit Pigeon was on the grounds for the 2017 PDRA East Coast Nationals that were held at GALOT Motorsports Park in North Carolina and he captured the door slammer action like only he can.
This was one heck of a race with a significant spectator turnout that you’ll see in the photos. The PDRA is clipping along at a good pace in 2017 and the world of door slammer drag racing has never been more intense, more technologically advanced, or more fun to watch than it is now.
There were great stories in the winner’s circle at this race as Mike Recchia won his first PDRA race at the wheel of his awesome Camaro, James Hancock took home the Pro Nitrous honors, Jose Gonzales took down all comers in Pro Boost, Chris Powers won in Extreme Pro Stock, and Travis Davis won in Pro Extreme Motorcycle.
We have more PDRA coverage coming from David Whealon in the coming days but Benoit Pigeon is hitting lead off here!
