Stow, Ohio – Sept. 2, 2016 – Mickey Thompson today announced its continued support of the Frank Hawley Drag Racing School. Known as the top drag racing school in the world, and founded by two-time NHRA Funny Car Champion Frank Hawley the school brings elite drag racing talent together with racers seeking certification in specific drag racing classes and categories.
The school’s unique approach to real world training, mentoring, and support helps prepare drag racers for the unique demands of each drag racing environment with the help of Mickey Thompson tires.
“It’s always important to have great traction and good handling in a race car, but it’s even more important when you are learning to drive,” said Hawley. “We’ve trusted Mickey Thompson tires at our school for years!”
In addition to the standard curriculum and certification programs, the school also offers the Mickey Thompson Dragster Adventure. This unique program provides training at select drag strips across the country giving students an opportunity to train at the racetrack in a Frank Hawley Drag Racing School dragster. Most recently, the Mickey Thompson Dragster Adventure has boasted incredible success with its most recent winner, Floyd Carter at Fontana, Calif. on April 21, as well as a group of Navy SEALs last spring.
