AMRA Nitro Harleys Igniting Cecil County Dragway

Ground-pounding, flame-throwing, Nitro Harley-Davidson motorcycles are returning to Cecil County Dragway on April 26-28, as the PennGrade1 AMRA series rolls into the scenic Rising Sun track for the Maryland Nitro Nationals. The Mid-Atlantic and Northeast fans are in for the thunderous competition they remember and can’t forget.

Headlining the event are the 6 second heavyweights of Circle M Ranch/ Dove Fuels Top Fuel and the tough men that ride them. They include two-time and defending champ Ryan Peery, North Carolina Hall of Famer Jay Turner, AMRA’s own John “JT” Toth, Spevco’s Tii Tharpe, Dean Comunal representing the locally famous/infamous Bad Apple Racing team, Jordan Peterson and more.

Take away one injector, a gear, and some cubic inches and you’ve got Nitro Funnybikes—every bit as loud and awesome as their big Top Fuel brothers. Bad Apple Racing’s Cameron Gunter, No Problem Raceway runner-up Jason Leeper, and more will flog their Nitro Funnybikes for your enjoyment.

Hawaya Racing Pro Fuel are smaller and carbureted, but still make a lot of nitro power, smell and noise. Champion Sam White started his title defense with a win in Louisiana, but he’ll have to face the Bad Apple home team of “Bad Ass Mary” Dangrow and Frank Shaffroth, along with Jim “Bad Influence” Martin, Jason Leeper and more.

Outlaw Street features record-breaking gasoline, turbo and nitrous behemoths throwing everything available in the mechanical and technological world to make all-out quarter mile assaults. Charley Douglass, Tim Grindle and more are expected to launch their no-bar bikes to mind-blowing performances.

Baggers are industry and fan favorites, and AMRA has two classes of them: Zipper’s Performance Pro Bagger and Thundermax Street Bagger. Come see these big grocery-getters in action!
