American Drag Racing League Adds Eighth Event to 2013 Tour at Cordova Dragway Park
(Lake St. Louis, MO USA) — December 12, 2012— Officials from the American Drag Racing League announced today that they have added an eighth event to their 2013 tour schedule. The Spring Drags IV will be contested on May 18 – 19, 2013 at Cordova Dragway Park in Cordova, Ill. “We are so excited to partner with Cordova Dragway Park for the Spring Drags IV,” said ADRL President Kenny Nowling. “The first three Spring Drags have been held at three different venues and we believe it has finally found a permanent home at this landmark facility.”
Picturesque Cordova Dragway Park, located just outside of the Quad Cities, plays host to the O’Reilly Auto Parts World Series of Drag Racing which will be contested for the 60th time in 2013. The area's 300 mile market of nearly 36.5 million people comprises around 12% of the nation's population, making it an ideal venue for the continued growth of the ADRL. “When I heard that the Nowling family had reacquired the ADRL I reached out to Kenny immediately about having an event,” said Cordova Dragway Park Manager Scott Gardner. “We spoke on the Monday following the PRI Show and finalized our date. Since the word has gotten out that we would be hosting an ADRL event in 2013, the response has been phenomenal! We have been flooded with phone calls and emails inquiring about those free tickets.”
ADRL officials also confirmed that while they are content with an eight stop 2013 Tour, they would consider adding a ninth event to the schedule if the right opportunity presents itself. “We are humbled by the number of tracks that have contacted us wanting an ADRL event for 2013,” Nowling said. “We are still in discussions with several potential track partners and are not ruling anything out at this point.”

NHRA SUMMER SHOWDOWN; NEW DATE & NEW ATTITUDE
Matco Tools returns as Presenter & Harleys added
The Summer Showdown presented by Matco Tools (an official NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Event) will move into June for 2013 and be conducted on Friday and Saturday, June 21 - 22. The event will now also include the prestigious NHRA Screamin' Eagle Championship Motorcycle Series with the addition of Top Fuel (Nitro Harleys), Pro Gas, Draggin' Bagger, Street Pro and Hot Street. This is an addition of what is expected to be one of the largest LODRS Events in the country with more than 500 race teams in competition.
"The new date and added entertainment value of the Summer Showdown will substantially increase our ability to draw race fans" said Scott Gardner. In addition to the entertaining Nitro Harley Motorcycles the powerful 260 mph Supercharged Alcohol Funny Cars and Injected Nitro and Supercharged Dragsters will be in competition. The Summer Showdown is a part of the NHRA North Central Lucas Oil Regional Series. This change should also increase the number of entries in both of these highly entertaining classes.
Cordova Dragway Park is currently looking at additional entertainment options to bolster the already jammed packed event. Watch for additional information to be forthcoming and keep the date as one to see in 2013!
