Summit Racing Equipment and Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School have been working together for over a decade. Having just come off a week of classes at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH it seemed like the perfect time for a thank you to our long-time partner!
This year the Summit logo has been worn by thousands of our students including stars like Jay Leno and Rutledge Wood.
We shot a segment with Jay for his new show “Jay Leno’s Garage” at Fontana and Rutledge Wood was behind the wheel of one of our Super Gas cars as he and Tanner Foust prepared for a segment of Top Gear.
Summit Racing Equipment is the world’s largest mail order automotive performance equipment company, with thousands of performance parts, aftermarket accessories, tools and garage equipment, collectibles, and stock replacement parts to choose from.
So, if you’re ever by one of the Summit retail stores, stop in. They host car shows, cruise-ins, have tent sales and more! Retail outlets are located in Tallmadge, OH, Sparks, NV and McDonough, GA.
Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School will be back at Gateway Motorsports Park September 15-17, 2015. Thanks to “Tropical Storm Bill” our June classes had to be rescheduled, however this will give more folks a chance to get signed up. The school will be offering the Super Comp and Super Gas NHRA licensing programs on September 15-16 as well as the hugely popular Dragster Adventure program on September 17.
The school dates fall right in the middle of a tremendous amount of drag racing activity at Gateway which includes the build-up to Hot Rod Drag Week Sept. 13-18 and the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals on Sept. 25-27. “It’s going to be a great time for drag race fans at Gateway and we’re excited that our school will be a part of the festivities,” said school founder Frank Hawley. “Folks can come out to Gateway and get their competition license in a 160 mph dragster or door car or they can compete in ‘side-by-side dragster racing in the Dragster Adventure.
Our school is the only place where any one with a driver’s license can compete in ‘side-by-side’ racing like this.” Advance registration is required for both the competition license program and the Dragster Adventure. For more information or to inquire about a group for the Dragster Adventure please contact us at 866-480-7223.
If you’ve ever thought that racing a dragster in side-by-side competition sounded like a thrill… then there is only one place to go… Frank Hawley’s Drag racing School!
On August 25-27, 2015 Hawley’s school will be offering 2 programs at the famed 1/4 mile facility. For those that want to experience the thrill of flying down the drag strip behind the wheel of a dragster and competing against other drivers, the school will be conducting the Dragster Adventure. In this program you’ll be making Full 1/4 mile runs in one of the school dragsters in the morning session and going head to head with other drivers in the afternoon competition. It’s the only school that offers a real side-by-side racing program.
But if you’re after even more power and speed you might want to try to earn your NHRA competition license in the Super Comp or the Super Gas cars. This is the course that started many of the PROS careers. The Frank Hawley program has no competition when it comes to training winning drivers.
Advance registration is required for the programs, so don’t delay. Take a look at the Hawley school at frankhawley.com or call us at 866-480-7223.
