Jul.18.2012Hawley’s Drag School Back at Maple Grove

Hawley’s Drag School Back at Maple Grove (Want some FREE drag slicks? Visit to learn more!) Just a few weeks ago, Frank Hawley was roaring down the Maple Grove Raceway as a featured driver in Maple Grove’s 50th celebration. Hawley, who appeared at the event as the guest driver of Troy Martin’s vintage 1973 Chi Town Hustler Nitro FC, was also inducted into Maple Grove’s “Walk of Fame” alongside veteran racers Don Prudhomme, Raymond Beadle and Dale Pulde. However, Hawley’s next appearance at Maple Grove will be as an instructor, not a driver. The racing coach is set to return with Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School on August 21 and 22. “I started racing at Maple Grove in the 1970’s with a Top Alcohol FC, so I know the track pretty well,” said Hawley. “We’ve been coming to Reading with our school to entertain and train drivers for the past 20 years. This track is one of the best in the Northeast and is right in the middle of thousands of racers and race fans.” In addition to the Super Comp gas dragster and Super Gas door car programs, the attendees at Hawley’s Maple Grove school will get a new opportunity this year. For the first time ever, speed seekers will be able to come out and get a ride in one of the school’s race cars. “Some folks are interested in just seeing what it’s like to accelerate in a drag car, so we’re making that available for them,” said Hawley. “Just give us a call and schedule a time and we’ll get you a ride you’ll never forget.” For other racing enthusiasts – some of which seek NHRA competition licenses – it’s the Hawley School’s reputation of offering first class instruction and providing quality equipment that will bring them to Reading. “More and more race tracks today are requiring that the drivers have a competition racing license if their car runs quicker than 10 seconds in the quarter mile. It can be very frustrating if you end up at your local track with your hot rod and you can’t compete because your race car is too fast,” said Hawley. “At our school, you can walk away with one of these licenses. Not only do the students get top-to-bottom instruction on how to be safe and drive fast- we also spend time in the classroom offering lectures on a number of topics to help drivers reach and maintain peak performance.” Lately a number of racers have attended Hawley’s classes with their own race cars. “Some of these drivers that bring their race cars are new to the sport and others have been at it a while,” said Hawley. “Even the pros can use a little help occasionally and that’s why we are seeing an increase in the ‘bring your own car’ programs.” There are lots of ways you can participate in the Hawley School in Reading.

Frank’s instruction on how to drive a Super Comp car is exactly what you need to drive a Funny Car. If you have the desire and listen to Frank, you too can drive any type of race car. Honestly, I think the classroom part of the course is much more important than the racetrack part of the course. He is the most thorough teacher I have ever met.”NHRA Funny Car Driver Robert Hight “The information I received at the School from Frank has improved my life professionally and personally. Everyone that wants to improve their mind and their skills should take this course.”- NHRA Top Fuel Driver Antron Brown “I started at Frank’s in his Alcohol Funny Car class. It was a great program and got me started in the right direction. I’d recommend his course to anyone. I always say you’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with, and Hawley’s School is a heck of a place to start.” – NHRA Top Fuel Driver Tony SchumacherFrank knows what he’s talking about. He understands the demands placed on drivers today and is able to work with drivers at all levels, from novice to Pro. If you’re thinking about race instruction, you need to go to Frank.” – NHRA Top Fuel/Funny Car/Pro Modified Driver Melanie Troxel Upcoming SC/SG Classes Listed Below.
