AMRA All Harley Drags – Bowling Green, Kentucky

Written by  July 31, 2005

There’s nothing like the smell of nitro Harleys in the morning!

On June 23-26, 2005, Beach Bend Raceway hosted the American Motorcycle Racing Association (AMRA) All Harley Drags with all the hoopla.

For the past few years my family and I have stopped there for several different races, however this was my first, but hopefully not my last time to see the all Harley drags.

Beach Bend is not only a drag strip, but is also an amusement park, water park and camp ground. The bleachers are conveniently covered so you can sit in the shade and there are a variety of classes headed up by top fuel and pro fuel.

The racing kicked ass, but the party in the campground was awesome! I hooked up with my good friend AJ and his fiancée Christine. AJ transferred from Kansas City to Bowling Green to build corvettes, and is a long-time motorcycle rider. AJ and Christine both ride and are a two-bike couple.

While we were there, they introduced me to all their friends, who are a great bunch of people. We had a lot of fun and I’m already looking forward to next year’s race!
