Pro Dragster joins the previously announced classes that will compete at all 10 rounds of the series: Top Fuel, Pro Gas, Draggin’ Bagger, Street Pro and Hot Street. The NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series begins in March at Royal Purple Raceway in Houston.

With quarter-mile elapsed times in the low 7-second range and speeds at more than 190 mph, the Pro Dragster class offers fans and racers a thrilling entry to the thundering spectacle of nitro-powered Harley-Davidson drag racing that is capped by the awesome 6-second, 225-mph Top Fuel class.

"Anyone who loves the smell of burning nitro can share our excitement with this announcement," said Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover. "Pro Dragster will be a great addition to the NHRA Harley-Davidson Drag Racing Series, and we can’t wait for the season to get started."

To support racers in all six classes, Harley-Davidson will offer a $177,250 purse, with payouts for event winners ranging from $4,000 to $400 plus additional payments down to the quarter-final round. In addition, class winners at each event will receive a coveted NHRA Wally trophy in the winner’s circle.

The NHRA Harley Davidson Drag Racing Series will compete at the following 10 scheduled events in 2013:

March 1-3, Royal Purple Raceway, Houston

April 12-13, Virginia Motorsports Park, Petersburg, Va.

May 17-19, Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park, Norwalk, Ohio
