Sonny’s Racing Engines is proud to announce that they will once again be providing support to PDRA competitors with the Sonny’s Pro Nitrous Low Qualifier Challenge.

Building on the success they had as an integral part of the PDRA’s inaugural 2014 season, Sonny’s Racing Engines, of Lynchburg, Virginia, has stepped up once again to the tune of $33,000 in contingency and bonus payouts.


This season the Sonny’s Pro Nitrous Low Qualifier Challenge will pay $500.00 to the No.1 qualifiers in the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous category, regardless of what engine they use.
In addition, at all 10 events Sonny’s will pay $1,000.00 to the Pro Nitrous winner and $300.00 to the runner-up if they are running a Sonny’s engine.

“The Pro Nitrous class has been growing and we are excited to continue our support of the PDRA through this new bonus program,” said Todd Hoerner, Sales Manager/Race Tech Support at Sonny’s Racing Engines.

Sonny Leonard brings more than 40 years of experience to the program, both on the track and in the 14,000 sq. ft. facility that today houses his state-of-the-art engine design, manufacturing and testing operation utilizing 5-axis CNC machining.

The Sonny’s Racing Engines name has been associated with numerous important chapters in racing history, among these being Bill Kuhlmann’s 1987 smashing of the 200-mph barrier in the quarter-mile by a full-bodied car. Kuhlmann utilized a 615-cid engine kit purchased from Leonard to accomplish the feat.

There have been numerous other performance landmarks established in multiple types of motorized competition, thanks to the power and dependability provided by Sonny’s Racing Engines.

“Having Sonny Leonard and Sonny’s Racing Engines as key players is a huge boost to the PDRA’s credibility and standing among racers and race fans,” said PDRA Race Director Bob Harris. “Sonny has seen it all and his experience in the sport both as a racer and engine builder is second to none. He has given PDRA racers something big to shoot for thanks to his generous contingency and bonus programs. We certainly appreciate Sonny’s Racing Engines for everything they do for our sport.”
