Event Preview: The 2018 PDRA Drag Wars At GALOT Motorsports Park

The final leg of the 2018 PDRA season has begun, and racers are ready to head back to GALOT Motorsports Park for Drag Wars. September 6-8 are the dates for the eighth-mile race to take place in North Carolina, with all the top PDRA racers making the trip to GALOT. All of the racing from Drag Wars will be shown LIVE right here on SpeedVideo.com!

With the Super Strip Nationals rained out last month, all of the competitors in the PDRA are itching to get back to racing. The Drag Wars event signals the sprint to the finish of the PDRA season, so teams are going to make every round count in their hunt for a championship. The outstanding surface at GALOT Motorsports Park will provide racers with the conditions they need to set records and put on a show for the fans.

Drag Wars will feature the PDRA’s professional and sportsman categories, along with gassers, jet cars, and grudge racing between classes. All of this action is coming to GALOT Motorsports Park in Benson, North Carolina from September 6-8. If you can’t make it to GALOT, SpeedVideo will kick off the racing weekend Thursday with testing at 2:00 p.m. RIGHT HERE. This PDRA broadcast is brought to you by Jerry Bickel Race Cars, COMP Cams, Moser Engineering, Flying A Motorsports and Penn Grade Oil.
