ROCHESTER, N.Y. - April 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Rochester, NY - April 12, 2014:  Phil Harnden and Jason Oldfield, drag racers with over 60 years of combined racing experience, today officially announced the formation of the Western New York Super Rod Association (WNYSRA).

The WNYSRA will showcase competition in the International Hot Rod Association's (IHRA) Super Rod category, one of the longest running sportsman drag racing classes in existence.  Super Rod features a wide variety of full-bodied cars and street roadsters which run on a 9.90 second index in the quarter mile.  All races are started using a 4-tenths of a second "Pro-Tree", the same as is used in the Top Fuel and Pro Stock categories.

Phil Harnden, co-founder of the new sportsman racing series, stated, "Jason and I felt the need to start this series to fill a void for sportsman drag racers in the area.  Our racers are very passionate about this type of racing, and we wanted to provide them with the opportunity to compete in a class they enjoy so very much."

In 2014, the WNYSRA is currently slated to run 8 total events; 6 at Empire Dragway just outside of Rochester, NY, and 2 at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, Ontario, Canada.  The full schedule can be seen below:

-    May 31 - Empire Dragway
-    June 28 - Empire Dragway
-    July 12 - Empire Dragway
-    July 26 & 27 - Toronto Motorsports Park
-    August 16 - Empire Dragway
-    September 6 - Empire Dragway
-    October 11 - Empire Dragway

Jason Oldfield added, "Our primary mission is to provide an outlet for some of the best heads-up, pro-tree drag racing competitors in western New York, southern Ontario, and northwestern Pennsylvania.  But, in addition to serving the racers, it is also our goal to provide our sponsors with unprecedented marketing value for their money though exposure at the track, in printed media, and on-line.  We're going to have some extremely exciting announcements coming very soon as we start to introduce our partners for the 2014 racing season."
