Top Fuel Class at WMDRA Sturgis Drags

The Harley-Davidson Motor Company will sponsor the Top Fuel class at the Western Motorcycle Drag Racing Association Sturgis Nationals August 5-7 during the 73rd Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

Harley-Davidson will offer a $5,000 Top Fuel purse with payouts of $2,500 for the winner, $1,250 for the runner-up, and $625 for semi-finalists. As a presenting sponsor, Harley-Davidson will also have a presence at the track, with motorcycle and Part & Accessories product displays and other activities.

Kris Schoonover (Harley-Davidson Racing Manager) says: “Joining the WMDRA at the Sturgis Nationals expands Harley-Davidson’s commitment to support grassroots drag racers with great Screamin’ Eagle Performance Parts, consistent payouts, and the opportunity to showcase motorcycle drag racing at the largest motorcycle rally in the country.

“We’re very excited to partner with the WMDRA and support its efforts to renew the ‘Rally and Races’ spirit at the 73rd Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.”

Sandra Alberti (WMDRA President) says: “We are honored to welcome Harley-Davidson to our family of supporters.

“This sponsorship shows the Motor Company’s attention and dedication to our sport and is another example of the strong value of association with motorcycle drag racing.”

WMDRA racing is scheduled for August 5, 6 and 7 at Sturgis Dragway, located at 20523 Hwy 79, just off Hwy 34 between the Full Throttle and Buffalo Chip. A full schedule of activities will be posted on the WMDRA and Sturgis Rally websites.
