Dates announced for Inaugural NHRA Screamin’ Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series

The race dates for the highly anticipated NHRA Screamin’ Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series have been announced for the 2013 season. The newly formed race series will compete 10 times during the season in conjunction with select NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events held across the country. 

At least one high-energy NHRA Screamin’ Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series event will be held in each of the seven NHRA divisions during the year. At every event, Top Fuel, Pro Gas, Draggin’ Bagger, V-Rod, and Hot Street will compete during the weekend. The NHRA Screamin’ Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series will offer a total purse of $152,800 among the five classes.

The winners in each category at every event will be awarded a coveted Wally and will participate in the race winner’s circle activities. The program also includes the crowning of a year-end Top Fuel champion, who will receive a specially designed Wally and year-end bonus. The best seven of 10 races will count for points toward the year-end championship.

“The NHRA Screamin’ Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series greatly expands Harley-Davidson’s commitment to supporting grassroots drag racers with great Screamin’ Eagle performance products, more contingency payouts, and expanded opportunities to race on a national stage,” said Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover. “We’re very excited to partner with the NHRA’s strong divisional Sportsman series to raise the visibility of this exciting form of motorcycle racing at a wide range of great racing venues around the country.”

Harley-Davidson Motor Company produces heavyweight custom, cruiser, and touring motorcycles and offers a complete line of Harley-Davidson motorcycle parts, accessories, riding gear and apparel, and general merchandise. For more information, log on to
