KERRVILLE, TEXAS (April 23, 2013) –- The special purse bonus that was a part of the X-treme Drag Racing League’s (X-DRL) first-ever event will now be included during the X-DRL’s first appearance at Bristol Dragway
Thanks to sponsor Morrow Brothers Ford, which is also the “Official Vehicle Provider Of The X-DRL,” a special purse bonus has been extended for drivers in the Pro X-treme, Switzer Dynamics Pro Nitrous and X-treme Pro Stock classes at the X-DRL’s second event.

In all, it represents an impressive $24,000 payout bonus at the X-DRL’s second event, adding even more anticipation to the X-DRL’s first appearance in Bristol.
“We are thrilled to again have the chance to offer this bonus in the exciting Pro X-treme, Pro Nitrous and X-treme Pro Stock classes at such a historic venue like Bristol. We are excited to see the X-DRL continue to grow and racing in Bristol is going to make for a memorable weekend,” Morrow Brothers Ford General Manager John Wellenkamp.
