THIS WEEKEND'S RICHMOND PDRA EVENT COULD SHAKE UP POINTS

Written by Ian Tocher.

 

PDRA StantonWith four races left in its inaugural eight-race season, the all-eighth-mile Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) heads to Virginia Motorsports Park, near Richmond, this weekend (July 24-26), for the NAS Racing PDRA U.S. Drags. With 100 points available for each round win, each event continues to take on significance.

After winning all four previous events this year, though, it probably won’t concern Jason Harris, who has a stranglehold on the Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous lead. At 2,211 points, the Pittsboro, NC-based racer has nearly double the points of his closest rival, Tommy Franklin (1,150), who is closely followed by Pat Stoken, class rookie Lizzy Musi and Tim Savell.

A trio of past world champions with a prior organization head up the star-studded NAS Racing Pro Extreme points list, starting with ’06 champ Bubba Stanton (1,709), 2010 champion Mick Snyder (1,237), and Stanton’s teammate Jason Scruggs (1,160), who won back-to-back titles in 2007 and 2008. Stanton, from Potts Camp, MS, won the first two races this year at Rockingham, NC, and Valdosta, GA, while fifth-place man Randell Reid won the most recent pair of events at Memphis and last month at Martin, MI. Brandon Snider currently sits fourth.
