Pingel Top Fuel Motorcycle Schedule for 2022

Top Fuel motorcycles will have an active year in 2022. The world’s most powerful motorcycles will begin a new season of competition with a three race points season this year, sponsored by Pingel Enterprise.

This championship racing season will be run in conjunction with the Mid-Western Drag Racing Series, and the action will kick off on April 22-24 at Memphis International Raceway with the 35th Annual Memphis Chevy Show presented by O’Reilly Auto Parts. With the recent sale, this may be the last race ever held at the famed track.

All nitro burning T/F motorcycles are welcome to participate. The MWDRS T/F class will be an 8 bike field and the purse will be the largest in recent history:

Winner $5,000.00, Runner-Up $2,500.00, semis $1,250.00, quarterfinals $500.0

The three-race championship points season, sponsored by Pingel Enterprise, is the cornerstone of the Top Fuel motorcycle drag racing season this year. The other events are equally important for both the Top Fuel bikes and for the promotional growth and history of the class.

Events like the Memphis Chevy Show, the Saint Louis Speed Fest 2022, the Eddyville Night of Fire, the Norwalk Night Under Fire, the Throw Down in T-Town: these are all premiere car racing events where thousands of fans who normally never see Top Fuel motorcycles, will be exposed to their sensory overload.

Legends of Top Fuel motorcycle drag racing like Larry “Spiderman” McBride (featured photo at the top), Sam Wills, and Chris Hand, will again showcase their skills they have been honing since the 1970s. Somewhat younger Top Fuel racers like Dave Vantine, Mitch Brown, Micah Fenwick, Mark Conner and others will also be carrying the wheel to the stripe.
