Ten dates for the second season of the NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series have been released. An updated rulebook and a follow-up announcement will be released, shortly as NHRA finalizes the program and class structure.

The NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series will hold at least one race in each of the seven NHRA divisions. The events will take place in conjunction with NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events with the Top Fuel Harley category featured at two NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events, the O’Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Spring Nationals at Royal Purple Raceway and the Ford NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway.

Top Fuel Harley, Pro Fuel Harley (formerly Pro Drag), Pro Gas, Draggin’ Bagger, Street Pro, and Hot Street will all take to the track during the course of an event weekend.

The best seven of 10 races will count for points toward the year-end championship.

“Our partnership with the NHRA for the NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series has been a great success and has exceeded our goals of increasing the visibility of Sportsman Harley drag racers at venues across the country and shining a spotlight on our Screamin’ Eagle performance products that help our customers showcase their speed and talent to new audiences,” said Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover. “We look forward keeping that momentum going strong into next year.”
