Since our first race in 2005, the PMRA has produced ten champions. In six years of racing, there have been five different Quick 32 Sportsman Series champions, and in its four years of existence, there have been four PBSS champions.
In the past eleven years of operation, the three series have awarded over $1,250,000.00 to our drag racing competitors.
Since our first gathering in December of 2004, when we were asked to organize and promote a group of Pro Modified Teams, and seven years ago when the same request was made by a group of Top Dragster and Top Sportsman Teams, the series has always strived to make each season a pleasurable experience for all concerned including our loyal fans. The same attitude applies with the Pro Bike & Sled Series, which began in 2011 and has been presented by Wiseco Performance Products since that time.
