Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada Supports Drag Racing In 2011

Concord, Ontario (May 18, 2011) - May the Canadian Drag Race Season Begin!

As in past decades, Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada renews its commitment to support Canadian drag racing in 2011 through the Canadian Motorcycle Drag Racing Association (CMDRA).

The CMDRA boasts fourteen classes of racing, five of which are sponsored by Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada (exclusive Canadian distributor of Harley-Davidson® motorcycles, Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories, and MotorClothes® apparel): the Screamin’ Eagle® Stock XL (883) Series, the Screamin’ Eagle® V Rod® Destroyer™ Series (East & West); the Screamin’ Eagle® Pro Dragster Series; the Screamin’ Eagle® Pro Fuel Series, and the Screamin’ Eagle® Top Fuel Series. The CMDRA is fully sanctioned by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and was originally formed by a group of West Coast motorcycle drag racers back in the early 90s. It has grown to over 500 members and hosts several “motorcycle only” drag race events across the country.

Clint Rabb, Executive Director of the CMDRA comments: “We are very pleased to see the increasing popularity of high performance motorcycle sports such as drag racing, where even the inexperienced can enjoy the adrenalin rush within a safe and controlled environment. The 2011 CMDRA season is already panning out to be a very busy one, with a great mix of highly acclaimed veterans, as well as some passionate [beginners] who are eager to prove themselves. Given the variety of classes that racers can compete in, and catering to a very wide range of budgets, we have made drag racing very accessible in Canada. With racing enthusiasts, racers, supportive friends and family involved, we expect a strong turn-out at our CMDRA events this season.”
