Lenexa, KS, (January 10, 2019)…Aeromotive, the market leader in fuel delivery systems and components, announces they are the Official Fuel System in 2019 for Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School. Over the years, Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School has mentored numerous drivers that went on to become powerhouses in drag racing.

“We are excited to be working with Aeromotive this year,” says founder Frank Hawley. “We’ve been teaching drag racing’s top drivers for over three decades and it is imperative that we can provide these drivers not only with great instruction, but powerful and reliable race cars as well.  It’s that reliability and performance that we will get from the long line of Aeromotive products.”

With the advent of this partnership in 2019, Aeromotive has put together a system that can handle the rigors of licensing passes day-in and day-out, while still providing the quality performance and reliability for which Aeromotive is known.

Hawley continues, “We also have used Waterman fuel systems on our alcohol cars for 30 years. With Aeromotive’s acquisition of Waterman Racing in 2017, Aeromotive is now providing us with all of the school’s fuel system needs under one roof. Steve Matusek has put together a great group of people that provide top quality parts for everyone’s performance needs. We’re proud to be with them.”

Steve Matusek echoes the sentiment, adding, “Frank Hawley and his Drag Racing School have been a force in this industry for decades. We’ve known Frank Hawley and his team for a number of years. He even brought his program out to Heartland Park Topeka for an Aeromotive team-building day! There is a great group of people behind Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School and it shows in their hard work, passion, and dedication. We’re excited to be the Official Fuel System for Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School and we’re looking forward to what 2019 will bring for everyone involved.”

Hey everyone!  We have the majority of our 2019 class dates published on our website, so check them out!

We will be visiting many of your favorite tracks in 2019, as well as running classes in Florida.  Clink on the following link to see all the upcoming dates and locations!  https://frankhawley.com/class-dates-locations/

Since so many of our competition license classes have been sold out this year, we wanted to get the word out about our fall and winter class dates!  First, we added a NEW class on October 1-2 at Gainesville Raceway!  The October 11-12 class at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway only has a few spots available.  And there are a few seats left in the class at Auto Club Dragway in Fontana, CA on October 17-18 so we added a second class on October 24-25.

We’ll be running classes all winter at our home track in Gainesville, FL and currently have classes on December 4-5 and December 27-28 to finish out 2018.  We’ve added a few dates for the competition license class in 2019 too in Gainesville – January 22-23, February 5-6, February 19-20, March 19-20 and March 26-27.

Drive well in this program and you can earn your license to 7.50.  The competition license course includes classroom, in car and on track instruction.  Drivers will make progressively longer runs down the strip,  enjoy video review of all runs and learn from Frank Hawley’s lectures on improving personal performance.   Those new to drag racing will learn basic techniques and procedures and those currently racing can improve their skills.

The Mickey Thompson Dragster Challenge days are always exciting, but this time we were fortunate to introduce some special celebrity guests to the thrill and excitement of drag racing!  With Mickey Thompson distributors from Freedom Tire, Les Schwab Tire Centers and Keystone Automotive competing against special celebrity guests Doug and Brad DeBerti from the Discovery Show “Twin Turbos“, and Eric Barron who drives the Mickey Thompson Lucas Oil Off Road Race Series truck, you just knew it was going to be a fun and special day!

In the celebrity guest final Brad DeBerti had an almost perfect .001 reaction time to take out a red lighting Eric Barron.  In the distributors final, Frank Hernandez had a great light to take out Scott Borden to win the trophy and bragging rights of the drivers from Les Schwab Tire Centers.

All in all, it was a great day of team building and drag racing.  “Frank Hawley and his team of professionals have done it again! Said Kirk Fenn, National Accounts and Business Development from Mickey Thompson.  Our guests were treated to an amazing day of learning how to drive these dragsters.”

The School has been relying on the high quality and consistent performance of Mickey Thompson drag slicks for all our race cars for many years now.”  “As the premiere drag racing school in the country we travel to a lot of different locations and we see all types of track surfaces and temperatures.”  “We know we can rely on Mickey Thompson slicks to give us the traction, durability and performance for all our students,” said Frank Hawley.

Contact us about a fun day for your group! The Dragster Adventure Challenge is great for team building, employee reward, customer promotion, sponsor day, etc.  Call Jeff Arend x103 or Paul Shields x102 at 866-480-7223 to discuss providing a most memorable day for

your group.  Private group events are scheduled on demand, as are the 200 mph class dates in the Funny Car or Dragster.  Information on all the programs offered by the School, class dates & locations can be found on our website at www.frankhawley.com

Starting this year the school partnered with Greg Samuel and his transmission and torque converter company, FTI Performance.  “We have been running the FTI products and I’m amazed at the performance and durability.  I’ve been to Greg’s shop and seen the attention to detail and craftsmanship that goes into his products.  It’s a first class operation,” said Hawley.

Since 1992, Greg Samuels and his wife, Phaedra, have supplied some of the best built transmissions in the country to some of the best racers in the country.  A bracket racer since he was 17, Greg is not only a marketing partner for the school, but a transmission consultant as well.

FTI is quickly becoming the standard in the performance industry with their innovative state-of-the-art torque converter and transmission design.  The FTI Performance R&D team produces new products on a daily basis from Stock to Top Sportsman, from Street to Pro Mod.  Their attention to detail and forward thinking sets them apart from all other manufacturers.  With the latest technology and design available nowhere else, it’s clear to see why people are winning races everywhere in all categories of racing with FTI.

A racer with a storied background, Samuel traveled the country from the early 90s to 2001, finishing his weekends quite often in the Winners Circle.  As a racer, earning the trophy at the end of the weekend was the goal.  Now, Greg prefers to see his customers go home with the gold.  It’s more rewarding for me to show up at the race track and my customers win or go fast now than driving a car myself,” said Samuel.  “I also enjoy helping racers get started and that’s why we are excited to work with Frank Hawley.  It’s going to be a great partnership,” said Samuel.

Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School is the leader in Drag Racing School Instruction world wide.  For over 3 decades Hawley’s School has been training the top professional and sportsman drivers.  The School’s reputation has been built on providing the best instruction for its drivers as well as the best equipment in which to train.

“It’s important for us to provide fast and reliable cars for our students to drive”, said Hawley.  “We literally make thousands of runs each year which puts demands on our cars, especially the drive line.  That’s why we are excited to announce our partnership with FTI Performance,” continued Hawley.

Last week was the debut of the John Force Racing built 2018 Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car at Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School.  John Force Racing’s developmental driver, Austin Prock, was the first to make laps in the beautiful state of the art Camaro. Frank and his crew worked side by side with Austin and couldn’t have been happier. “We have been working with Austin for the past year and it’s been great to see him develop as a race car driver! Austin is very focused, just like his Dad Jimmy, and we look forward to seeing him in a John Force Racing Fuel Funny Car down the road.” said Frank Hawley

“We at John Force Racing have always relied on Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School to get our drivers started off with the proper training. The knowledge that can be gained from the school is priceless and definitely gives our current and future drivers a leg up on the competition.” said Robert Hight, GM at John Force Racing. Robert added, “Even though I have won 2 Championships, Frank Hawley is still the first person I call for advice when I need some, and he is always there to help me out.”

“I had a blast working with Frank, like I always do. In my mind if you want to become a better racecar driver, there is no better school to go to. Frank’s constructive criticism is what makes the difference, if you listen to him. So, if you just want to go somewhere, make laps and not learn, this isn’t the place to go!” said Austin Prock

“I’m honored that John Force Racing has trusted us to work with all of their drivers over the years, it’s truly been a privilege,” said Hawley.  “As Austin moves forward in his career he will get excellent guidance and advice from Robert and all of the JFR team drivers.”

“When we came up with this program, the idea was to make the transition to a Nostalgia Funny Car or NHRA Nitro Funny Car as easy as possible.  The procedures for driving this car are almost identical to those type of cars and we feel that there is no better way to get prepared for that next step in your career. For those of you that like the dragsters better, we also have a Top Dragster set up the same way, so we have you covered.” added Frank Hawley.

Contact the school at 866-480-7223.  And visit our website at www.frankhawley.com for information on all the programs we offer, class dates & locations!  Pre-registration required in all classes and seats are limited.  The Alcohol Funny Car and Dragster class dates are on-demand and most are not listed on our calendar.
