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

Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School will start its 2014 West Coast season at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, AZ. The world’s premiere Drag School will be conducting Super Comp and Super Gas Competition licensing classes on March 2-3, 2015 and the increasingly popular Dragster Adventure on March 4, 2015.
“We are excited to be heading to Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Phoenix this winter. The weather in Phoenix around that time of year is spectacular. We will be running our classes following the NHRA Divisional race, so race fans from around the country can have a total motorsports experience. They can watch the races and then do some driving themselves,” said Hawley, owner and chief instructor of the school.
Hawley points out that the competition course which can provide drivers with an NHRA 4A or 4B competition license is not just for those who want to go racing. “In every class we have ever held we have had experience levels that ranged from veterans to folks that have never staged a car,” said Hawley. “Over the years we have worked very hard to develop a curriculum that never talked over someone’s head. I have always believed it is essential that we offered classes where everyone felt comfortable no matter their age or gender and that we provided an atmosphere where each person could enjoy themselves,” added Hawley. Racers can also choose to attend one of Hawley’s lectures on ‘Personal Performance Development’ which is offered as part of the Competition classes. Many of today’s top professional and sportsman racers have attended and greatly benefitted from Hawley’s teachings.
On March 4th you, your friends, your employees or your customers can enjoy the 10-second Dragster Adventure or race side-by-side in the Dragster Adventure Challenge! No experience necessary and you can book the program on-line!
So whether you want to earn your license, improve your skills, check one off your “Bucket List”, upgrade your current license, or try the new Dragster Adventure with Side-By-Side Racing, we hope you’ll join us in Phoenix for an experience you’ll remember forever!

Here’s a few quotes from some of last year’s Phoenix grads:
“Best experience I’ve ever given myself! I would be forever blessed if I only retained even a quarter of what I heard & learned… Thank you!” Windy
“I just want to drop you a short note to thank you all and most of all Frank for giving me opportunity to get my License. I learned a lot in class and a lot of it I have applied to my business (American Walk in Coolers) the idea of staying calm and not to over react to things that happen which are out of our control was great, there was a ton of other things I leaned and I thank you Frank, It was all good stuff.” Gene
“ I wanted to thank everyone at the school for their help and a special thanks to Frank . I ran my first race this past weekend and ended up going to the finals with over 30 cars in the field and finished runner up running a super pro class with a local drag club.” David

Nostalgia drag racing has experienced tremendous growth over the last several years and one of the most popular categories is Nostalgia Funny Car. With so many new teams and drivers entering this class, Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School is now offering training specifically for aspiring Nostalgia Funny Car drivers. “We’ve offered training in both Alcohol Funny Cars and Dragsters for years,” said Hawley. “Many of today’s NHRA Pros trained at our TAFC program before entering the NHRA Nitro Funny Car class. Over the last few years we’ve also licensed several drivers in our alcohol cars that were headed to the Nostalgia class. There are however a few differences between driving a pedal clutch, 3-speed alcohol car and a centrifugal clutch car. So we have developed a program that will provide drivers with the exact same routine they will be using in the Nostalgia cars. The car is set up to drive like a Nostalgia car, complete with a Crower centrifugal clutch.” “I had a great time racing the Chi-Town Hustler with Austin Coil back in the 80s. Those cars were a blast to drive. And I even got a chance the past few years to get behind the wheel of the restored Chi-Town Hustler owned by Troy Martin. It’ll be a lot of fun to help drivers get up to speed to race in the Nostalgia Funny Car class. Also, the class will prepare and license drivers for any fast 125″ wheelbase car. There are many drivers that race these cars in an index class and this will be the perfect program to get them started in the right direction,” said Hawley. If you’d like more information on this or any other program, contact the school at 866-480-7223.
The country’s best known Drag Racing School is returning to Pacific Raceways in Kent, WA! The school will be holding its most popular course, the two-day Super Class on August 6-7, 2014. “We can’t wait to get back to Pacific Raceways”, said school founder and instructor Frank Hawley. “Washington state is one of the most beautiful in the country and we love visiting there. We’re really excited to be able to offer this program to the racing enthusiasts in the Northwest,” continued Hawley.
Many people come to Frank Hawley’s for race training and NHRA licensing, but the course isn’t limited to aspiring professionals. “Although we train a lot of serious racers, this course is for everyone. Some folks don’t need an NHRA license. They’re just looking for excitement and challenge,” said Hawley. “I wouldn’t want anyone to feel intimidated if they didn’t have any ‘fast car’ or racing experience. Every class we run has a range of drivers, from those with a solid racing background to some that have never seen a drag strip before,” continued Hawley.
No experience is necessary to take the course and several spots are available for drivers to participate in the class utilizing their own car for training as well.
If you’re looking for a racing license, Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School offers NHRA licensing courses in Super Comp and Super Gas. A driver can obtain his/her NHRA 4A and/or 4B license upon completion of the two-day course and be certified to compete as quick as 7.50 seconds in a quarter mile.
This class is known as the “Super Class”, the school’s most popular program. Graduates have gone on to be many of today’s top sportsman and professional drivers throughout all of the drag racing sanctioning bodies across the globe.
The curriculum, designed and instructed by Two-Time NHRA Nitro Funny Car World Champion Frank Hawley, includes classroom instruction, progressively faster runs down the strip and video reviews of each student’s runs.
Those new to drag racing will learn basic techniques and procedures and more experienced racers will master the mental challenges. Frank Hawley teaches students how their minds and bodies work while training each class to think, act and perform like champions.
As with any of the Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School classes or locations throughout the U.S., space is limited and must be booked in advance. Interested parties are urged to reserve their seat as soon as possible to ensure they don’t miss their opportunity to work with the Two-time NHRA Nitro Funny Car World Champion, Frank Hawley.
