Racers and owners in the NHRA Top Fuel Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series have announced a new association and an expanded 2015 schedule which includes Pomona’s Winternationals event next week…..
The Top Fuel Harley Racers Association was formed during the 2014 racing season to encourage racers competing in the NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing series to work together to take the sport of Top Fuel Harley Racing to the next level. Thanks to the support of NHRA, its strong fan base and Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the Top Fuel Harley bikes will be running at four NHRA national event races in the 2015 season, doubling the number from the 2014 season when they competed at two national events early in the season. The remaining six races for the 10-race tour will be contested at NHRA Divisional events.
Team owner Ray Price is one of the people who helped form the Top Fuel Harley Racers Association. “Damian Cownden, Ray Pelrine, Kevin Boyer and I were talking and we wanted to do something to help support the owners, riders and their teams who are so passionate about what they do, while also helping introduce fans to the excitement of Top Fuel Harley racing. We look forward to a successful 2015 season and growing our audience.”
The association has also launched a new official website: www.TopFuelHarleyRacers.com.
