Pingel Backing AHDRA Modified in 2021
Bill Rowe’s “new” AHDRA has gained a new sponsor and it’s one of the most legendary names in motorcycle performance—Pingel—who’ve decided to hook their wagon to the Modified class.
“I’m really thrilled to have Wayne and Donna Pingel, and their company, show their support to the AHDRA racers,” said Rowe. “The Pingel name is respected at dragstrips and on road bikes worldwide, and I know I speak for all of our racers when I say ‘Thanks!’”
“We are proud to become the sponsor of the Modified class in the AHDRA association,” said the Pingels. “We like the comeback of this association and what Bill is doing to give the Harley racers great places to race. We look forward to the growth of this association and we want to be a part of it.”
Jeff Workman is the defending Modified champion.
