CAYUGA, Ont. -- The recently-established Pro Modified Racing Association is pleased to announce its first race venue for the upcoming 2005 season.

The PMRA has confirmed it will hold an event July 1-3, 2005, at Luskville Dragway, situated just outside of Aylmer, Quebec.

“I think this is great thing for drag racing and for Canadian drag strips,” said Luskville owner/promoter Arnie Malcolm. “This event will help bring us to the next level.”

Malcolm, who has operated the NHRA-sanctioned strip for 25 years, added his track has been continually upgraded over the years to present the best in drag racing, and the scheduled PMRA event will provide the stimulus to continue improvements at the track.

“We’re very pleased to get our first race,” stated Bruce Mehlenbacher, PMRA Director of Operations. “We’re looking forward to working with Arnie and his people.”

Over $21,000.00 in guaranteed prize money has been posted, with $5,000.00 to the winner of this event. Only PMRA members will be allowed to compete.

Mehlenbacher, who has been instrumental in the formation of the new series, added the Luskville date is the first set PMRA race to be held in 2005. A five-race series at tracks in Ontario, Quebec, and New York is planned and the list of confirmed PMRA series teams will be announced this week.

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.
