Since our first race in 2005, the PMRA has produced ten champions. In six years of racing, there have been five different Quick 32 Sportsman Series champions, and in its four years of existence, there have been four PBSS champions.
In the past eleven years of operation, the three series have awarded over $1,250,000.00 to our drag racing competitors.
Since our first gathering in December of 2004, when we were asked to organize and promote a group of Pro Modified Teams, and seven years ago when the same request was made by a group of Top Dragster and Top Sportsman Teams, the series has always strived to make each season a pleasurable experience for all concerned including our loyal fans. The same attitude applies with the Pro Bike & Sled Series, which began in 2011 and has been presented by Wiseco Performance Products since that time.
The Series was committed to provide a professional atmosphere of competition for its teams. The Series provided solid media and logistic support.
Racer safety was paramount. The Series provided trained personnel and equipment at all events and medical equipment and trained professionals were mandatory at all events for any racing emergency.
Regrettably, the time has come that we cannot continue. Along with a passionate group of officials that are my dearest friends, a dedicated group of teams, race venues and loyal sponsors that endorsed us have tried to make it work moving forward.
The Series cannot continue in its current state. We have all seen individuals with good intentions, but limited experience initiate new ideas with limited success. It takes experience, knowledge of our sport, knowledge of the people behind the sport, and sincerity to succeed. We are concerned greatly about the future of our sport.
The final two events of the 2015 Season at Empire Dragway and the Grand Bend Motorplex have been cancelled. Moving forward we will work to settle our obligations to the Teams and Sponsors.
We want you to know how much we have valued your loyal patronage. Over the years we have always worked closely and honestly with success. I have always been proud of our affiliation we have shared.
