The PDRA was founded in 2014 by an elite group of racers committed to bringing credibility and stability to the sport of 1/8 mile drag racing.  Jason Scruggs, Tommy Franklin, Gene Hector, and Roger Henson started the PDRA to preserve a viable door-slammer series that would benefit the fans, marketing partners, racers, and all those affiliated with the professional drag racing industry.

The PDRA has over 200 professional race teams poised and ready to compete for Championships in their respective classes. This Championship tour includes stops in major markets like: Memphis, TN; Dallas, TX; Bradenton, FL; Martin, MI; Budds Creek, MD; Dinwiddie, VA., and the historic Rockingham Dragway in North Carolina.

The PDRA philosophy is based on honesty, hard work, and the pursuit of excellence in every facet of the sport. We are looking forward to a very successful campaign for many years to come.

The PDRA races at least 9 events in 2016, while providing exciting, entertaining, and safe races for the quickest professional drag racers in the country.

Our goals are to ensure that our fans experience the greatest racing on the planet, our racers will have the safest and best prepared tracks to compete on, and that our marketing partners are guaranteed the most cost effective return on investment possible.
