            The All Harley Drag Racing Association (AHDRA) will make its first of two 2003 appearances at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway May 3-4.

            Fans will witness over 30 of the fastest tire-smoking, fire-breathing Screamin' Eagle Nitro Harleys ¿ capable of speeds in excess of 200 mph -- blazing the quarter-mile strip in

six seconds.  The sport's top names, including AHDRA Top Fuel champion Ron Houniet, will compete for over $50,000 in cash and prizes

            Two-time IHRA champion Doug Vancil is scheduled to compete as is drag racing legend Ray Price of Raleigh, N.C.  Price will be on location with KOMP-FM 92.3 on the morning of Thursday, May 1, at Tower Records SuperStore on West Sahara Avenue in Las Vegas for autographs and a sneak preview of his nitro-breathing machine.  Entering his 38th season of drag racing and a recent victory in Phoenix, Price will seek back-to-back Screamin' Eagle Nitro Harley wins at The Strip.

                AHDRA hosts 16 classes of competition, including three nitro classes, modified gas bikes, Pro Stock, street bikes, Jr. Dragsters and more.
