So whether you’re new to racing, moving up from Jr Dragster, or need to improve your skills, there are lots of class dates coming to a track near you! We also added a class following the rescheduled Gatornationals in June! And did you see we added Bandimere Speedway to the schedule this year? In addition to the popular Super Comp/Super Gas or Bring Your Own Car classes offered, the fun Dragster Adventure will be offered at many of the locations. Plus, we added a fall Dragster Adventure date in Florida!
If you’re looking to upgrade your license in the Alcohol classes, give us a call as those dates are scheduled on request at our home base at Gainesville Raceway.

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.
Call us with your questions or to book. Seats are limited in all programs and pre-registration is required.

Hey everyone! We have the majority of our 2019 class dates published on our website, so check them out! We also wanted to let you know that due to a delay with construction of our home track at Gainesville Raceway, our December 2-day Super Comp and Super Gas competition license classes will be held at Bradenton Motorsports Park. The original dates of December 4-5 and December 27-28 remain the same. As those classes are nearly full, we have added an additional class date on December 11-12, so we hope to see you in Florida in December!
Remember, the Funny Car and Top Dragster classes are scheduled on demand, at Gainesville. So if you’re ready to upgrade your license, give us a call and we can arrange some one-on-one time on the track for you with Frank Hawley and crew.

Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School is coming to Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL June 30-July 2! “This is the first time we’ve ever brought the school to Chicago and we are really excited,” said school founder Frank Hawley. “I spent several years living in Chicago when I was driving the Chi-Town Hustler Funny Car, so it’s good to be back. The facility in Joliet is first class and the staff has been extremely helpful in planning our trip.”
“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 course is designed to work for drivers with various levels of experience.”
There are still seats open in the Super Comp/Super Gas class on June 30-July 1. “The two-day Super Class 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.
For those that are simply looking for the thrill of blasting down the quarter mile, the Dragster Adventure is offered on July 2nd. The Dragster Adventure starts at just $399 for the half day program, or $599 for the whole day program with SIDE-BY-SIDE racing.Due to the tremendous response, the Dragster Adventure is sold out on this date, but we are taking names for cancellations.
Seats are limited and advance registration is required, so call now to reserve your seat for the June 30-July 1 competition course.
Call Jeff Arend at x103 or Paul Shields at x102 at Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School, 866-480-7223 or visit the school’s website at www.frankhawley.com for all the upcoming dates and locations. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube and Instagram!
So, if you want to earn your competition license, improve your skills, crossgrade or upgrade your current license, entertain friends or employees – give us a call!
Pre-registration is required in all programs and space is limited, so contact Paul Shields, email@example.com or Jeff Arend, firstname.lastname@example.org at 866-480-7223 for complete information on all our classes or to sign up!
Visit our website for lots more class dates and locations too!
With over a dozen locations on the schedule we hope almost everyone in the country has a chance to be a part of one of our programs. “We’ve added new locations like Route 66 Raceway in Chicago, Illinois and Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn, Oregon in addition to all of our regular stops,” said Hawley. “The next several weeks we’ll be running classes at our home track in Gainesville, Florida and then our crew will be heading west with stops in Tucson and Fontana. We’ll be almost everywhere!”
So if your goal is to join the list of successful Hawley grads in one of the school’s world class Licensing Programs or just have a blast racing against your friends in one of the school’s Dragster Adventure Programs, 2016 will be your best opportunity ever!
