HDRA Announces Inaugural Season

Heartland Drag Racers Association

The Heartland Drag Racers Association (HDRA) is ready to kick off its inaugural season of racing action in 2009 with the season opener to be held at Byron Dragway in Byron Illinois this April the 19th.

The primary objective of HDRA is simple, we wanted to create a series in which all racers of every make and model can be treated equal and participate in a competitive environment on friendly budget. In this time of great financial turmoil, it saddens us to see racers not be able to race because they can no longer afford the travel expenses of larger series, or cannot afford the increased membership fees of other series that are struggling to make it. We willingly open our doors to members of the drag racing and Street racing communities to come and race with us if their looking for a little extra action at the track in addition to their other racing programs, or if they are looking for somewhere to race without breaking the bank. Our events are designed around all levels of racing enthusiasts. Our ultimate goal is to establish a standard and mark our place in the racing community that welcomes everyone to come and participate in our motorsports events without a huge cost to them.

To support these ideas HDRA has established 4 main racing classes to accommodate racers of all levels. While designing the classing system special attention was made to make sure all racers could participate in a level they could be competitive in and allow them to advance to the next class relatively easy as their cars became faster.
Our Street Muscle class is a Open Comp format style racing class that offers a place for all cars running 11.99-17.99, this class is ran on a NHRA Sportsman Ladder with a .500 Tree, Handicap Start, and a 1/10th Breakout. The Street Muscle class offers the armature racer, racer with a stock car, or the weekend warrior the ability to start out in an Open Comp class, while others with faster cars and more experience, that want to, have the ability to compete in any of the 3 heads-up classes
The other 3 classes are Heads-up Style Index classes,
• Modified Muscle is the next step up from Street Muscle and is a 11.6 Index class,
• Pro Muscle come next and features a 10.2 Index, for the pro racers out there we offer
• Ultimate Muscle, which is an 8.5 Index Class.

Using this formula for class designation members of HDRA no longer have to worry about conforming to strict class rules that may exclude them for the smallest items, nor due they have to worry about losing out to drivers with faster cars and larger budgets. Our goal is to match up the drivers in the class that best fits their cars and their abilities on the track, with an entry fee they can afford.

The 2009 season of HDRA is scheduled to run 4 events at Byron Dragway, with a potential for 2 dates to be announced for Cordova Dragway.
