At the PRI Show this past week, the Professional Drag Racers Association announced that the payout
in their top three classes will increase in 2018. PDRA Pro Extreme, Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous
presented by MoTeC and Andy McCoy Race Cars Pro Boost will now all pay $10,000 to win. That's an
increase of $3,000 for Pro Extreme and Pro Nitrous and $4,000 for Pro Boost.
"We're entering into year five," stated Bob Harris of the PDRA. "We have put down strong roots and
we recognize that the cost of racing will always continue to rise. We felt the timing was right to
increase the payout for these classes. This organization has always been 'by racers, for racers'
and one of our main goals is to give back to the racers as much as possible. We hope our racers
will continue to see our commitment to them through moves like this. Our series consists of an
elite group of racers and we want to treat them as such."
The PDRA just recognized its 2018 World Champions at the PDRA Awards Banquet Saturday evening.
Recording artist, PJ North, performed at the banquet, which was a celebration enjoyed by all in
After a short off season, the series will begin season five with the East Coast Spring Nationals at
GALOT Motorsports Park, April 5-7, 2018. The full pdra schedule can be found by visiting PDRA online at http://www.pdra660.com.
