Motorcycle drags return to Ashcroft's Eagle Motorplex.

Eagle Motorplex

The CMDRA kicks off its 20th anniversary season on May 25 when motorcycles return to the quarter mile for their opening round at the Eagle Motorplex in Ashcroft. Building on the success of its 2012 campaign, the CMDRA is set to deliver in 2013, with increased bike counts, rekindled rivalries and the heart stopping adrenalin rush which its fans have come to expect.

Competition in the premiere Screamin’ Eagle Top Fuel class will rise to a new level as three time and reigning CMDRA champion Damian Cownden attempts to extend his streak. The return of the NHRA veteran Pelrine family and their ASB Racing team of three Nitromethane fueled bikes, and 2012 UEM Superbike Twin champion Nate Gagnon, add to the challengers for Cownden’s crown.

Once again for the 2013 season, the CMDRA will provide live up to the minute results for all of its events at: www.cmdra.com/2013-live-race-results/

With 12 class championships to be decided, including the 2012 standout Pro Mod division, after 20 years 2013 promises that is the best is yet to come.
