photo 5If 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 schophoto 1ol 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.

photo 10.1Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School is coming to Summit Motorsports Park July 20-24!  “There are different reasons drivers attend our courses,” said school founder Frank Hawley.  “Some are looking to get a competition license while others just want to drive a fast dragster and check another item off their bucket list.  Every class has a combination of experienced racers and folks that have never been down a drag strip.  The two-day SC/SG license course is designed to work for drivers with various levels of experience.”

“The staff, as well as the entire Summit Motorsports park facility, is one of the best you’ll find anywhere in the country,” said Hawley.  “The Bader’s make us, and our students, feel very welcome and give us a superb surface in which to conduct our courses.”

The two-day Licensing program on July 20-21 allows drivers of all backgrounds the opportunity to earn their NHRA competition driver’s license in the school’s Chevy Performance 572/720R equipped Super Comp Dragsters or Super Gas Firebirds.  For drivers that already have their own car, the school offers a “bring your own car” program that gives drivers the opportunity to enjoy the same driving course behind the wheel of their own race car.  No experience is necessary to take the course.

In addition to on-track time, students will learn from Frank’s classroom sessions which cover the physiology of how the mind and body work together.  Participants will learn how to mentally prepare, perform at the highest level, improve focus and block out distractions.  Frank teaches how to practice more effectively and feel more confident about pulling up to the starting line and he shares techniques on how to remove the emotional baggage (everybody has some) that can often disrupt good performance .

For those that are simply looking for the thrill of blasting down the quarter mile, the Dragster Adventure is offered on July 23 or July 24.  The Dragster Adventure starts at just $399 for the half day program, or $599 for the whole day program with SIDE-BY-SIDE racing.

Seats are limited, so call now to reserve your seat for July 20-21 for the competition course, or book on-line for the Dragster Adventure on either July 23 or July 24!

Here’s what some of our recent grads had to say:

“This was by far the BEST WEDNESDAY OF MY LIFE!  Thanks to the outstanding program offered by the Hawley group.  They are the best.  I will be back! I thank everyone involved, Frank, Lana, Jeff and all the rest.  My bucket list has 1 less thing to do!”  Kevin Crawford, Dragster Adventure Challenge Winner

“I’m still processing my two days at drag racing school. I learned as much about myself as I did about racing, which is what I was looking for. Instead of lecturing about cars and driving, Frank teaches the bio-mechanics necessary to perform a precise task under pressure, and the state of mind needed to do well. Drag racing requires a keen self-awareness and presence in the moment.”  Joseph Brown, Super Gas Firebird

“I attended your super comp class on December 2 & 3 in Gainesville and 7 weeks later I have a Top Fuel Dragster license and I couldn’t have done this without the things you teach your students. Thank You!”  Shawn Reed, Super Comp Dragster now Top Fuel driver!

“I learned much more than I expected to and had fun doing it.  Frank is a terrific teacher! And I’ve had lots of teachers over the years (undergraduate school, medical school and 6 years of surgical residency).  The teaching format worked well for novices and experienced racers. The cars worked flawlessly and were equal in elapsed time. I was surprisingly comfortable despite my sizable frame.  My diminutive wife was comfortable too. The adjustability of the cars make them the right size for any driver.  Derek and Jimmy were a tremendous help before and after each pass.  I look forward to returning for the super comp/super gas program.  I’ll be bringing my friend Wayne down with me so he can work on his lights too.”  Dr. Ron Franzino, Dragster Adventure winner

photo 6Last week the state of Texas and the Houston area in particular were drenched by pounding rains for several consecutive days with accumulations of up to 10 inches of water in some areas.  But the Frank Hawley Drag Racing School students didn’t miss a run down the Royal Purple Raceway 1/4 mile in Baytown TX.

“We were running our race cars in perfectly dry conditions while it was raining 5 miles to the west in Houston,” said Hawley.  “I’ve seen conditions like that for a few hours however this went on for days.  Someone was definitely looking out for us.”

The school’s group of drivers ranged from locals, like Sherriff’s deputy Greg Brockett, photo 1to Gifford Hill whose friends Richard Hale and Lance Wells made the trip from Alaska.  The drivers completed an incredible 115 runs during the competition course and those results produced 18 newly licensed NHRA drivers!

In addition to the competition course others competed in the Dragster Adventure program which allows drivers to do some “side-by-side” dragster racing.  Kendall Levron from Houma, LA was the Challenge winner with Avery Smith from San Antonio, TX as runner-up!

“We had a special guest at the Adventure course,” said Hawley.  “Alex Russell, the son of former TAD racer Chris Russell was on hand. His dad Chris is the brother of the late T/F driver Darrell Russell.  Chris’s dad Burnell and his mom were also in attendance.  It was great to see the whole famphoto 1ily there cheering on the next generation driver,” continued Hawley.  “Alex made it to the semi-final round but the high light of the day had to be a special unplanned one run match race between Alex and his dad Chris.  Dad won!  It was a lot of fun for all of us.”

So with the Houston classes in the books the school is back in Gainesville this week for some Nostalgia Funny Car classes.

If this sounds like something you’d like to try, check out our classes coming up in Gainesville, Denver, St Louis, Norwalk, Reading, and Fontana.

Challenge - 06.1This has been a great year! We’ve covered the country from California to Washington to Pennsylvania with lots of places in between.

Our first full season with our Dragster Adventure thrilled drivers and produced some fabulous side-by-side racing and our school is still the only place student drivers can race dragsters in “side-by-side” competition.

Take a look at the video of the John Force Corporate Adventure day. You’ll see John with his daughters Courtney and Brittney and his team driver Robert Hight enjoying a day with their sponsors at our school.

Our school is the perfect place for you, your friends, customers or employees to join in the activities during the Adventure programphoto 3s.  We can plan a private session just for your group!

The fall weather is spectacular here in Florida. We’re enjoying 70 degrees and sunshine while many people are stuck in the “polar vortex”. So treat yourself to a trip to Florida. We have a full schedule of classes in everything from Super Comp and Super Gas to our 200 mph Alcohol machines.

Many dates and locations have been finalized for 2015, so if you can’t make it to Florida this winter (although you should really try!), take a look at our other locations and decide what other race track will work for you or your group. https://frankhawley.com/class-dates-locations/

photo 5.12015 will mark our third decade of providing excitement, thrills, education and fulfillment of many drivers’ dreams. We would love to help make it a memorable year for you behind the wheel!

We look forward to hearing from you!
