Harley-Davidson Sponsors the Top Fuel Drag Races in Sturgis
The Milwaukee manufacturer will be offering 4 prizes summing up $5,000 (€3,845): $2,500 for the winner, $1,250 (€961) for the runner-up and $625 (€480) for the semi-finalists. This also means H-D will have a strong presence at the track, with motorcycles, parts and accessories on display, ranging from the casual segment to the high-performance upgrades.
Harley-Davidson Racing Manager Kris Schoonover declares: “Joining the WMDRA at the Sturgis Nationals expands Harley-Davidson’s commitment to support grassroots drag racers with great Screamin’ Eagle Performance Parts, consistent payouts, and the opportunity to showcase motorcycle drag racing at the largest motorcycle rally in the country.”
WMDRA President Sandra Alberti was also glad to add H-D as a sponsor for this event: "We are honored to welcome Harley-Davidson to our family of supporters. This sponsorship shows the Motor Company’s attention and dedication to our sport and is another example of the strong value of association with motorcycle drag racing.”
The WMDRA races are scheduled August 5-7 at the Sturgis Dragway, 20523 Hwy 79.
