GLENDORA, Calif. -- Riders in the Pro Fuel category of the NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series will be competing for a national championship title beginning in 2014. NHRA made the announcement today along with adding an Index 10.50 class and implementing a number of additional rules changes to other categories in the series, which is entering its second season.

Pro Fuel (formerly Pro Dragster) will compete at 10 events during the season and will count points from their best seven of 10 finishes toward the year-end championship, which will award a cash purse of $4,500 to the top three finishers with the champion also receiving an NHRA Championship Wally trophy and jacket.

"After a great inaugural season of the NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series, we're adding more opportunities to showcase and reward the efforts of Harley-Davidson drag racers," said Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover. "We think these changes will help this program grow even stronger as we enter our second season."

A seventh class has been added to the series that will be based off a 10.50 index and will be contested at all 10 Harley-Davidson Series events with racers competing for individual event honors and a Wally trophy. The class is designed as an entry level class with a variety of Harley-Davidson motorcycle models being eligible for competition.

Several rules changes have also been made to open up the other classes and help grow the series. The 2014 NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series rulebook supplement and amendments can be found under the rules section on

The 2014 NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series will run in conjunction with the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, with the Top Fuel Harley class also set to be featured at two of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events. The series kicks off in March at Royal Purple Raceway near Houston.
