ENNIS, TX – Due to the impending threat of inclement weather at the Texas Motorplex this weekend, American Drag Racing League officials made the difficult decision to cancel all racing activities at the track. The CBD American Shaman 2021 ADRL tour is now rescheduled at the Dallas-area venue for July 2-3. All free tickets distributed for this weekend’s ADRL Dragpalooza will be honored for the makeup date.
“We hated to pull the plug on this,” said ADRL CEO Kenny Nowling. “We made it all the way here with drivers from all over the country ready to put on a Texas-sized show for these fans, but Mother Nature’s always going to get the winlight, so we had to postpone.
“This is just a small setback because now, we have time to make this race, held in God’s country on the weekend of America’s birthday, one that both racers and fans will never forget!”
ENNIS, TX – “Alright…you called down the thunder, well now you got it!” –Wyatt Earp, Tombstone The thunder returns to the Texas Motorplex this weekend, courtesy of the CBD American Shaman 2021 ADRL Tour and the American Drag Racing League’s Dragpalooza. As always, tickets to the quickest and fastest Pro Mod show on the planet are completely free, thanks to the hundreds of thousands of tickets distributed throughout the Dallas region in recent weeks.
Frankie “The Madman” Taylor, Pro Extreme winner of this event a year ago and the 2020 class champion, is returning to the scene of that incredible victory with no intentions of this weekend’s result being any different than last year. During 2020’s ADRL season opener, Taylor made four uncontested passes down the track to take the win. “I’d rather be lucky than good,” Taylor said in the Winner’s Circle at the time. Lucky he may have been that night, but the native Texan used all his hard-earned skill and talents to take home the PX championship belt in St. Louis last October.
LAKE ST. LOUIS, MO – In motorsports, especially drag racing, it’s not uncommon to see competitors helping each other at the track. There’s a sense of honor at the drag strip where racers want to win, but only when the driver in the next lane is competitive. Turning the win light on is sweeter when you’ve beat the best at their best.
Ben Jones, owner of Southern Adrenaline, is a racer who takes that attitude to the track. With the CBD American Shaman 2021 American Drag Racing League Tour kicking off next weekend at the Texas Motorplex near Dallas, Jones is providing products to ADRL teams that not only give them an edge, but provide good health as well.
Southern Adrenaline’s top product is their custom hearing protection. Made for professionals needing to not only stay in communication with co-workers and teammates, but to also prevent hearing loss and ear damage due to the high decibels they experience. Obviously, there’s a big market for this kind of device at the drag strip.
“We’re there for the racers and for the fans,” said Jones. “Southern Adrenaline makes custom earpieces for drivers, teams, and officials so they can not only communicate, but protect their hearing in one of the loudest environments to work in. Plus, when we’re at the track, we supply helpful things like suit drying, tire gauges, and the things you can’t just get down the road at the auto parts store.”

LAKE ST. LOUIS, MO – American Drag Racing League officials announced today the ADRL Gateway Drags, originally scheduled to kick off the 2021 ADRL season March 26-27 at World Wide Technology Raceway near St. Louis, has been moved to June 11-12. ADRL’s Dragpalooza, April 30-May 1 at the Texas Motorplex outside Dallas, is now the season-opening event for the second-consecutive year.
The date change was made after much discussion between the Madison, Ill.-based race facility, the ADRL, and Illinois government officials. It was decided that utilizing the June date for the race would allow WWT Raceway to return to pre-COVID event crowd standards.
“We are currently able to host approximately 20 percent of the venue capacity, but we are optimistic that increased capacity will be coming in the days, weeks, and months ahead,” said World Wide Technology Raceway Executive Vice President and General Manager Chris Blair. “Adjusting the date to June should enable us to host the series in a manner that ADRL fans and competitors will enjoy.”
