Officials from the American Drag Racing League announced today that they have added an eighth event
to their 2013 tour schedule. The Spring Drags IV will be contested on May 18 - 19, 2013 at Cordova
Dragway Park in Cordova, Ill. "We are so excited to partner with Cordova Dragway Park for the
Spring Drags IV," said ADRL President Kenny Nowling. "The first three Spring Drags have been held
at three different venues and we believe it has finally found a permanent home at this landmark
Picturesque Cordova Dragway Park, located just outside of the Quad Cities, plays host to the
O'Reilly Auto Parts World Series of Drag Racing which will be contested for the 60th time in 2013.
The area's 300 mile market of nearly 36.5 million people comprises around 12% of the nation's
population, making it an ideal venue for the continued growth of the ADRL. "When I heard that the
Nowling family had reacquired the ADRL I reached out to Kenny immediately about having an event,"
said Cordova Dragway Park Manager Scott Gardner. "We spoke on the Monday following the PRI Show and
finalized our date. Since the word has gotten out that we would be hosting an ADRL event in 2013,
the response has been phenomenal! We have been flooded with phone calls and emails inquiring about
those free tickets."
ADRL officials also confirmed that while they are content with an eight stop 2013 Tour, they would
consider adding a ninth event to the schedule if the right opportunity presents itself. "We are
humbled by the number of tracks that have contacted us wanting an ADRL event for 2013," Nowling
said. "We are still in discussions with several potential track partners and are not ruling
anything out at this point."
