As intense as the action on the track is, the rivalry continues after the shutdown. Last season concluded with several contenders feeling the sting of near-misses and unresolved quests for points.

With the season’s expansion back to six events, the competitors are laser-focused, knowing that every race and every point counts.

DME Racing Real Street

DME Racing Real Street is set to roar into the season with a thunderous lineup of 7-second, 190mph powerhouses. With the class expanding its reach, this year promises even more excitement, boasting an impressive roster of fifteen riders for the season-opener.

After XDA’s introduction of crossover rules at the end of the previous season, the competition heats up as active AHDRA Extreme Outlaw and AMRA Outlaw Street racers bring their nitrous assisted 7-second V-Twin motorcycles into the fray. Among them, Gregg Dahl and Mike Motto stand ready to elevate the intensity of the DME Racing Real Street class in next weekend’s showdown.

Recognized as the world’s fastest 1/8th-mile sportsman index class, it consistently delivers four-second thrills over 660 feet, combining the precision of index racing with the sheer velocity of drag racing’s finest.

The class continues to surge in popularity, drawing a diverse group of top-tier competitors and a dedicated fan base.
