Drag Racing

If top speed and massive acceleration are what you crave, drag racing should satisfy your appetite. It’s all about speeding down a paved quarter-mile track, whether you’re racing the clock or another competitor.

Like all forms of AMA-sanctioned competition, there’s a wide range of investment in terms of equipment, time and talent. The AMA, chartered clubs and volunteers continue to develop a framework for grassroots-level motorcycle drag racing opportunities, with a place for everything from modern sportbikes to vintage machinery.
