After a five-year hiatus, the famous Racer Appreciation
Series returns to Huntsville Dragway and Montgomery Motorsports Park in
Alabama. Officially called TCI/Comp Cams presents the original Racer
Appreciation Series, the series, along with another series for heads-up racers,
promises low entries fees and high payouts, and will be played out at both
tracks throughout the 2007 racing season.
Famed racing promoter George Howard, of Birmingham, will
present bracket and heads-up action at both tracks through the year. “After
personal struggles in my life with losing my wife, I have decided to go back to
work,” he says. “The original Racer Appreciation Series put me on the map as a
drag racing promoter, and it was built as a way to support the ‘little guy’
racer. I want to see this (2007) series grow.” Howard started the original
series in 1994, at Rockingham Dragway.
