“I am often asked how come it looks like I know what I am doing in a fuel funny car and my answer is I listened to everything Frank Hawley told me. I do not have natural talent. 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.”
“It’s been a dream come true. It all started at Frank’s School when I got my Top Alcohol Dragster license. I got a car to drive and won the NHRA TAD World Championship my first year in competition. We moved to Top Fuel and had great success winning the NHRA Top Fuel World Championship in 2018. I never would have thought it would have been possible. Thanks Frank for all your help!”
“Frank and I have been friends for years. His school is top notch and a first class operation. Each one of my team drivers, Robert Hight, Austin Prock and all my daughters, Courtney, Brittany and Ashley all started at Frank’s school…”
“I’ve been to Frank’s a few times driving everything from his Super Comp Cars to his Top Alcohol Funny Car. His course, his staff, his lectures and his equipment are the best. If you want to get started in racing you need to go to Frank Hawley’s.”
“Frank is without question the most knowledgeable person I’ve ever met when it comes to racing psychology and physiology. His degree of research and knowledge is amazing.
“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.”
“The things that Frank taught me in class are tools I use every weekend, at a professional level. He teaches you not only the physical side of driving, but the mental side of it as well. Which I think have brought me a long way.”
A few years ago I went to Hawley’s for the Alcohol Funny Car program and I got hooked. The course was great, the cars were great and the instructor was great. Now I own my own Fuel Funny Car Team and it all got started at Frank Hawley’s.
“When I made the decision that I wanted to Drag Race professionally, the first thing I did was call Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School. I went through their alcohol dragster program and it taught me the skills and confidence that I rely on today as a professional driver. Frank’s clear and straightforward instruction is an invaluable tool in and out of the race car. I recommend anyone from a novice to a professional that is serious about drag racing to attend this school. I have been racing 20 years and I still look forward to sitting in on Frank’s classes. Trust me, when you get ready to light that top bulb and it’s ALL on the line, EVERYTHING matters.”
“I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from Frank. The lessons he teaches during his course are ones that can be carried forward on the race track and during everyday life. For those interested in learning how to drive a race car, attending Frank’s School is an absolute must. He and his staff are kind, patient and more than willing to help all those in attendance. Personally, I believe without a doubt Frank is the best teacher in this sport. His ability to communicate and understand a drivers perspective are second to none. Thank you Frank for all your help!”
“The School is a must for anyone who wants to do well in racing. I took the Super Comp course before getting into an A/Fuel Dragster. This was only possible because of Frank Hawley. He teaches the science of the human mind. These principles are key to being a good driver. They prepare you for any class, even Top Fuel. I definitely recommend this class. Thank you Frank!”
“When I got a chance to drive for Don Prudhomme, I wanted to be prepared. Frank worked with me and got me up to speed. If you want to go racing… go see Frank first!”
“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.”
“I attended Frank Hawley’s School when I was 16 and had an absolute blast! I grew up around drag racing, but to actually get suited up and fly down the drag strip at 150+ mph was an awesome experience that I would recommend to anyone who loves racing and speed!”
“I’ll be honest; the first time I left the line in Frank’s Funny Car it scared me! But with his patient instruction and encouragement I was able to get my NHRA Funny Car license from the Hawley School and eventually won an NHRA World Championship. If you want to make it to the big leagues there is no better place to go than Frank’s!”
I’d raced Sprint Cars for many years but I’ll tell you my first run in Frank’s Top Alcohol Dragster was unbelievable. Driving his Alcohol car and getting instruction from Frank prepared me for my entry into Top Fuel. I’d recommend the School to everyone.
I started at Frank’s School and the program was great. He covers everything you need to know. The cars, the staff and the instruction exceeded my expectations. It’s a first class program I’d recommend to everyone.
“When I retired it was important that my new driver was trained properly. That’s why I sent Larry to Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School.”
Frank 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.
It was at Frank’s school that I learned that I might have what it takes to make a career in the sport. At Frank’s school, you learn much more than just how to drive a race car, you learn what you’re made of, and whether or not you have what it takes to achieve your own dreams.
It’s been a few years since I went to Frank’s School and worked with him and George Bryce. It took a few trips to the School but finally I got it. Then a ride with Star Racing and three World Championships. If I hadn’t taken that first step and attended the School I don’t know if any of this would have happened. Thanks George and Frank!
When you’re a teammate of the World Champion you need to stay on top of your game. Frank’s lectures cover a wide range of topics that deal with issues we face every day. His instruction continues to help me at every race.
Frank’s programs are the best. There is no comparison in equipment, staff and instruction. I think everyone that’s even a bit interested in our sport should jump behind the wheel and try driving a dragster. And you should do it at Hawley’s School.
I’d spent years racing Super Comp but a Top Alcohol Dragster is a completely different machine. I could have got my license on my own but I wanted to work with Frank. I heard from everyone that he was the best at training alcohol drivers. He is and I’m glad I choose Frank Hawley’s.
