ADRL Releases 2013 Schedule

By  | 

Officials from the American Drag Racing League unveiled their 2013 tour schedule today during a press conference at the Performance Racing Industry show in Orlando, Fla. The most notable change is a switch to events being held on Saturdays and Sundays versus the ADRL’s traditional Friday – Saturday format.

“After careful consideration and discussions with our racers and track partners, everyone agreed that holding our events on Saturday and Sunday was our best option going forward,” said ADRL President Kenny Nowling.


The season will launch Mar. 9 – 10, at with Dragpalooza IX at historic Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, NC, and will wrap up Oct. 10, with the ADRL World Finals IX at beautiful Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, TX.

Two additional dates are being considered, however agreements were not finalized in time for this announcement. Expect a press release in the coming weeks announcing the remaining dates on the 2013 ADRL calendar.
