AHDRA Nitro V-Twins Heating Up North Florida

AHDRA All-American motorcycle drag racing will break the recent cold snap, bringing their thundering, ground-pounding, flame-throwing, nitro V-twin show to Fountain’s North Florida Motorplex on October 21-23 for the Coca-Cola Southeastern Thunder Nationals.

You’ve seen them on the NHRA highlight reels. Nothing beats the violent thrust of a big Top Fuel Harley, nitro V-Twin engine, and this is the time and place to see these incredible motorcycles and the fearless men who ride them.

“Jimmy Mac” McMillan will try for his third straight Top Fuel win, but his Bad Apple Racing teammate Tracy Kile will be pushing as much nitro as it takes to stop him, “Southside” Don Becker, Juha “Sushi” Hintukainen and the rest of the field.

The first eight confirmed Top Fuel riders for this event will have free class entry. Contact Bill or Chrissy Rowe to confirm.

Hawaya Racing Nitro Funnybikes get the job done while slightly simpler, smaller, and—sometimes—slower than their big Top Fuel brothers. 6.50s is still hustlin’, though, and recent Cecil County winner Armon Furr will be taking on all-comers.

Florida hero Walter Halonski will be putting his leathers back on to pilot the Bad Apple Racing, carbureted Hawaya Racing Pro Fuel of “Bad Ass Mary” Dangrow against Rocky Jackson, Sam White and more.

Less noisy but every bit as impressive are AHDRA’s gas classes. GMS Racing Engines Xtreme Outlaw, Zippers Performance Pro Modified. Pingel Enterprise Modified, V-Twin Powersports Hot Rod Bagger, Horsepower Inc. Pro Outlaw Bagger, Super Stock and MTC Pro Comp Outlaw all race out the back door, while 9.30 index, Super Pro 10.30, Vreeland’s Harley-Davidson Super Gas 9.90, Universal Fleet & Tire 10.90, and 11.50 index all race to a fixed number. Eliminator racers set their own dial-in, and the Trophy class is for those getting their feet wet.

North Florida has something even better for the motorcyclist looking to make their first passes on a dragstrip—the Drag Race Experience from 8:00 to 9:30 pm on Saturday night! This is your chance to see what that old hog of yours will really run.

That new family favorite, Junior Dragbikes, will be back at it as well.

Test and Tune from 6:00-10:00 pm on Friday, gates open at 10:00am. Qualifying begins at 1:30 pm on Saturday, raceday opening ceremonies at 11:00 am Sunday. Admission is $25 for a day, $45 for a 2 day pass, or $55 for all 3 days

Bill and Chrissy Rowe look forward to welcoming the AHDRA family to this brand new stop on the circuit. Do not miss this event!
