GLENDORA, Calif. - NHRA officials announced today two revisions to the 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule where the Pro Stock Motorcycle category competes.
In 2013, the Pro Stock Motorcycle class will visit zMax Dragway in Charlotte, N.C., April 19-21 and be a part of the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals. The category will compete four-wide along with Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock. In addition, the bikes will be featured at the inaugural NHRA New England Nationals in Epping, N.H., June 20-23.
To accommodate the schedule changes, the Pro Stock Motorcycles will not compete in Atlanta and Brainerd, Minn.
