The PDRA plans to continue their Friday/Saturday event format. The sophomore tour will begin at Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Tx. March 20-21. April 10-12 the PDRA will return to Rockingham Dragway, home to some of the most memorable moments in professional eighth mile racing. After this the PDRA heads west during the first weekend of May to Thunder Road Raceway in Shreveport, La. The final weekend in May will see a stop at Gateway Raceway in St. Louis, Mo. The tour will then reach its halfway point on June 26-27 at US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Mich.
Budds Creek, Md. has often been regarded as one of the top doorslammer facilities in the country. The PDRA will bring their unique brand of eighth-mile action to Maryland International Raceway, July 17-18. Then the tour will make its second annual stop at Memphis International Raceway on August 21-22.

The sophomore tour will conclude as the inaugural tour did, at Virginia Motorsports Park near Richmond, Va. on October 23-24. “We worked hard to produce a schedule that would benefit our teams, sponsors and fans, as well as each of the tracks we will visit,” expounded PDRA Race Director, Bob Harris. “We look forward to visiting new tracks and welcome back many of the places we visited this year. I believe this schedule is just what we need to continue moving forward as the world’s premier eighth-mile drag racing organization.” Also in the works, a new points structure to be unveiled later this year.
