Officials from the American Drag Racing League unveiled their 2013 tour schedule today during a
press conference at the Performance Racing Industry show in Orlando, Fla. The most notable change
is a switch to events being held on Saturdays and Sundays versus the ADRL's traditional Friday -

everyone agreed that holding our events on Saturday and Sunday was our best option going forward,"
said ADRL President Kenny Nowling.
