PITTSBORO, N.C. -- The Professional Drag Racers Association is less than four months old, yet this breakthrough organization is about to unleash the maiden event in what many believe will soon become a pillar of drag racing history. With overwhelming support from sponsors, manufacturers, racers and fans this fledgling series has put their stamp on the industry before ever contesting their first pair of cars. But that's all about to change.

On Friday, April 4, 2014 two high-powered, ground-shaking machines will line up on the starting line of Rockingham Dragway for a first round qualifying pass, a feat that's been performed countless number of times. But this particular pass will alter history as the PDRA revs its proverbial engine and lays the groundwork for an enduring future - one that will undoubtedly preserve the legacy of professional eighth mile drag racing.

The inaugural PDRA Spring Open National Event will be held April 4-6 at Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, NC. Five professional categories: Pro Extreme, Pro Nitrous, Pro Boost, Extreme Pro Stock and Pro Extreme Motorcycle, along with Top Sportsman and Top Dragster in the sportsman ranks and two classes of Junior Dragsters will provide the best in eighth mile entertainment. Round one of qualifying begins at 6pm on Friday with three rounds following on Saturday at 11am. Then on Sunday it's time to crown the first-ever PDRA Champions as eliminations get underway at 10am.

Many top names in professional racing are calling the PDRA home and will be wowing the NC crowds. The likes of Champions Joey Martin, Wild Man Frankie Taylor, Mike Castellana, Elijah Morton and Eric McKinney, among many other famous names, will be on hand at the Spring Open, and having worked hard all off season on new looks, more power and the fastest innovations, they'll be looking to make their own history. Racer pre-registration is currently open and over 75 teams have already pre-registered for the race.

Free tickets to this legendary event are available at www.pdra660.com, but for those unable to join the action, the PDRA live feed will be broadcasting all weekend long.

Special thanks to the many PDRA sponsors who support the PDRA initiative.
