Ontario-based Drag Racing Series Prepares for 2005 Season



HAMILTON, Ont. -- A new drag race series has been established for 2005 featuring the popular and entertaining Pro Modified cars, known as the “world’s fastest doorslammers.”

Under the direction of the Pro Modified Racing Association (PMRA), the Ontario-based series will provide five events at several drag strips in Ontario, Quebec, and New York.

With close to two dozen Pro Modified teams in Ontario and Western New York, there was a need for these teams to compete on a regular basis in front of their local fans. After meetings with several teams, a race format was established with regulations, race dates, and purses. The PMRA is also meeting with several recognized drag race groups such as the Can-Am Stock/Super Stock Series with the possibility of presenting several divisions at its events.

The PMRA is a self-governing organization with its own set of technical and safety rules based on the International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) Pro Modified division. Cars in the PMRA capture the true spirit of hot rodding, and the class offers a widely-diverse group of race cars with different types of 2000-horsepower engines propelling the cars down the quarter-mile in the 6.20-second range at 230 mph.

Event dates, details, and PMRA competitors will be presented in the near future. A comprehensive and informative website will also be available soon.
