NDRA Kickoff This Weekend

Canada’s National Drag Racing Association (NDRA) will kickoff it’s 2nd year of existence this coming weekend when it brings it’s Thunder to Grand Bend Motorplex……

The May long weekend of 2012 marked a milestone in Canadian drag racing as the National Drag Racing Association introduced its Alcohol Funny Car Series presented by Ohsweken Speedway. They opened their season at the RPM Magazine/LUCAS OIL present the Rudy Helds Performance Centre “Spring Blowout” at Grand Bend Motorplex with some of the finest TA/FCs in the country; to the sheer delight of the crowds.


Well, they’re back at Grand Bend this weekend (May 18 – 19) for the 2013 RPM Magazine/LUCAS OIL present the “Spring Blowout”! This year, the NDRA is bringing more thundering excitement along with the addition of their Pro Doorslammer teams.

Not only will fans be treated to the spectacular power of the 3,000 HP floppers hitting speeds of more than 250 mph, but they will be right there for the NDRA’s intro of an amazing contingent of six-second, 200 mph door cars!

Combined, the two classes feature unique, crowd pleasing new and retro body styles and a variety of engine combinations that are sure to keep eye-balls glued to the quarter-mile from the staging lanes to the finish beam. It would be an understatement to say that the National Drag Racing Association is going to bring BIG entertainment to the grounds of Grand Bend Motorplex this weekend.

The teams have been working feverishly; prepping and testing for their 2013 series opening event on Canadian soil. Each and every one of the drivers – both classes – are seasoned competitors with a deep desire to “win it all” this year. Beyond that; and most importantly for the fans … all of them are out there to entertain with billowing burnouts and all out racing action.

Grand Bend Motorplex has a lot on the RPM Magazine/LUCAS OIL present the “Spring Blowout” program that is guaranteed to thrill all who pass through their gates this weekend. With the NDRA Alcohol Funny Cars and Pro Doorslammers the quarter-mile, high-octane entertainment package will send ‘em home with huge smiles on their faces and an itch to see it all again!
