Starting in 2007, the AMA/Prostar drag racing series will feature 10 classes and one exhibition class, down from the current structure of 13 classes and one exhibition class.
Four Pro classes will be featured – Top Fuel and Funny Bike, running in eight-bike fields, and Pro Mod and Pro Street, running in 16-bike fields. Entry fees for these Pro classes will be $250, aligning drag racing with other professional motorcycle sports.
There will be two Semi-Pro classes, Super Street and Super Sport.
In addition, the Prostar series will offer a total of four sportsman classes for 2007 – Top Gas (8.20), Super Comp (9.20), Pro ET, and Street ET, with the addition of the Super Eliminator exhibition class at selected events. Super Comp is being re-indexed from 8.90 to 9.20. Street ET will now be a full points and contingency paying class. All four Sportsman classes will have guaranteed payouts regardless of bike count.
A new rules package will be released in mid-January and the rulebooks delivered by mid-February. The entire rulebook will also be released in a PDF format as soon as it is available.
For more information concerning these and other class rules, visit the Prostar website after January 15, 2007 at www.amaprostar.com.
