You can earn your competition license to 7.50 in the two-day competition license class in our car or yours, so please contact us and we can answer all your questions about this program. This is a great foundation if you’re building a car, moving up to a faster car or making the move up from Juniors. Or maybe it’s on your bucket list to take the class. You’ll learn so much more than how to drive the race car! Frank’s renowned “Personal Performance Development” classroom sessions cover the physiology of how your 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 whether at the track, at the shop or at home. He’ll share techniques on how to remove the emotional baggage (everybody has some) that can often disrupt good performance .
If you’re looking for a fun day driving a dragster, the dragster adventure is for you, friends, customers and employees. The Dragster Adventure is a fun course specifically designed for drivers that want to “DRIVE A DRAGSTER” and you can even compete in “SIDE-BY-SIDE” racing. This program does not have the in-depth classroom sessions that our competition course does, but is great for team building and group events too! Group dates are available on request.
If you’re currently racing and are ready to move up to a faster car, check out the 200 mph class! These upgrade courses are designed not only for those seeking to compete in Nostalgia Funny Car, Pro Mod, Top Dragster, A-Fuel Dragster, Top Alcohol Dragster, but also numerous other types of programs such as Super Quick, Quick 16 Shootouts, Super Pro, Big Money Bracket Races or anywhere a competition license to run quicker than 7.49 in a quarter mile is required. You can earn your license to 6.00 in these classes. Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School offers drivers who are looking to upgrade their current NHRA competition license to 3A or 3B or 2A or 2B in this unique one day course. Participation in this course requires a strong drag race history or successful completion of the Super Comp or Super Gas Course.
