National Hot Rod Association Unleashed, the ultimate horsepower racing series, is set to visit seven new venues this year. The highly-anticipated drag racing series will go beyond the usual schedules as it hops from Midwest to the West Coast for the first time, NHRA officials announced on Thursday.
The NHRA Unleashed series showcases makes and models of high-powered drag racing cars and speedy vehicles so fans could enjoy a powerful and exhilarating weekend. The event not only focuses on racing but offers automotive displays as well. NHRA Unleashed has so much in store for young and adult fans in celebration of their love for racing.
According to Ray Wilkings, director of operations for NHRA Unleashed: “We are very excited to expand the 2011 NHRA Unleashed schedule to seven events and to be able to offer the tour to new regions of the country, introducing the events to nearly all of NHRA’s division. The new schedule presents great geographic diversity as well as affords our racers the opportunity to compete at some of the best maintained and operated facilities in the U.S. Last season was a great beginning for NHRA Unleashed and we look forward to building even more momentum in 2011.”
The NHRA 2011 season will open on May 6th to 7th at South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, Georgia before continuing the event on June 3rd to 4th at Tulsa Raceway Park, Oklahoma.
NHRA will join forces with Disrupt/ive Studios Inc., producers of the drag racing show PINKS, to create programming centering on the 2011 NHRA Unleashed events.
