The PDRA Invades Rockingham – First Ever Race Is Big Success For Organization – Race Coverage and Photos here –

(Words and photos by Benoit Pigeon) – Great crowd large amount of competitors and high performances at the first stop of the PDRA series.  This year Nitrous and blown cars are entirely separated into different groups. The new class, named Pro Boost regroup blowers and turbos and it does work apparently very well since two of each ended in the semi finals and both adders where also in the final.  Todd Tutterrow who is experienced with both took the trophy with a blower set up on his Galot Mustang.  Pro Nitrous was a repeat from last fall Rockingham race with Franklin and  Harris in the final.  Harris took the win over Franklin who debuted a new car that was barely tested prior to the event.  Much like in Pro Boost, turbos did stand up very well in Pro Extreme, but the final was a classic blower vs blower with Bubba Stanton and a brand new Camaro taking the win over Mick Snyder.   Records were also broken during the week end with Harris becoming the first to pass 200mph in Pro Nitrous, Eric Dillard  over 220mph in Pro Extreme, and Frankie Taylor also in Pro Extreme dropped a sensational 3.458s.  As a reminder theses are all 1/8 mile performances.

Other classes offered by PDRA are Extreme Pro Stock, Top Sportsman, Top Dragster, Extreme bike and junior dragsters. PDRA was created by racers for racers. All three pro mod classes had over the number of racers needed for 16 car fields way over for 2 and the performances were top of the line. With no rain and large crowd, a smooth running operation all week end and memorable performances there is probably not much more the organizers could have hope for on their very first event and a brand new organization.

    Enjoyed watching the race on streaming feed but the announcer has to go. Worst voice to listen to and very annoying.
