Event Preview: The 2019 PDRA Fall Nationals

The weather may be cooling off, but the PDRA is heating up as its season begins to wind down starting at the Fall Nationals. Darlington Dragway is going to be a high-speed battlefield of racing and you’ll want to be there October 3-5 to see all the action. For those who can’t make it, SpeedVideo will have the live broadcast RIGHT HERE.

The PDRA Fall Nationals is the last stop before the World Finals so it has become a critical event for teams to gather points. After a long season, every racer is starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel as they work to secure a spot in the top 10 of the points standings. Darlington Dragway provides such an amazing backdrop for the Fall Nationals for both the fans and the racers, plus the surface is always prepared for plenty of horsepower.

All of the PDRA pro classes have points battles that are still raging on as the Fall Nationals come to life. Pro Nitrous is a three-man race between Jim Halsey, Tommy Franklin, and 2018 class champion Jason Harris. In Pro Boost, Kevin Rivenbark, Kris Thorne, and Tommy D’Aprile are all fighting for the class championship. Extreme Pro Stock is a two-man contest between points leader John Montecalvo and Jeff Dobbins. Johnny Pluchino has a huge lead in Pro Outlaw 632 with Wes Distefano and Christopher Holdorf trying to catch him.

If you’re a fan of Pro Mod racing then you’ll want to be at Darlington Dragway October 3-5 to check out the PDRA Fall Nationals. The SpeedVideo team will have all your live coverage needs handled RIGHT HERE during the event. This broadcast is brought to you by Titan Fuel Tanks, along with Vortech Superchargers, Crane Cams, TCI Automotive, Speedwire, Flying A Motorsports, Jerry Bickel Race Cars, American Racing Headers, and Nitrous Outlet.
