NHRA announced the continuation of the Screamin'
Eagle NHRA Nitro Harley-Davidson exhibition tour to be held at three national
events in conjunction with the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series.
The three NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series events
in 2007 that will showcase the NHRA Screamin' Eagle Nitro Harley-Davidson exhibitions
will be the O’Reilly NHRA Summer Nationals at Heartland Park Topeka (Kan.),
June 1-3; the O’Reilly Thunder Valley NHRA Nationals at Bristol (Tenn.)
Dragway, July 6-8; and the Torco Racing Fuels NHRA Nationals at Virginia Motorsports
Park near Richmond, Va., Oct. 5-7.
The invitation-only exhibition tour will feature
the top Nitro Harley-Davidson teams from the All Harley Drag Racing Association
(AHDRA) who will compete to qualify for an eight-bike elimination field. Qualifying
will take place on Friday and Saturday during each national event, with eliminations
held on Sunday.
“Our Screamin’ Eagle Nitro Harley
racers and teams are excited to put on a great show at these select NHRA events,"
said Anne Paluso, manager of Harley-Davidson Racing. “NHRA fans love the
raw power and pure American performance of these Nitro-burning Harleys.”
AHDRA President Craig Tharpe said his group is
grateful to be included in the NHRA program.
"It gives us a chance to showcase our exciting
sport in front of an expanded demographic of fans," Tharpe said. "We
hope that they will find the extreme sport of Nitro Harley racing to be a great
experience and check out other AHDRA events in the future."
